Starting the vlog titled ‘The Video I Never Wanted To Make’ with an update on her ended romance with Tom, Samie said: “Me and Tom have broken up. It’s ended on good terms. No one has done anything bad to each other. There’s still lots and lots of love there,” adding that there’s ‘pressure’ on couples to make things work once they leave the villa.
She then went on to become visibly emotional as she detailed her health scare, revealing that whilst she was in the villa, her family had received a string of messages from fans who said that she appeared to have a lump on her neck.
Samie then explained that she decided to get the lump around her thyroid checked out and said she was thankful for the fans who had pointed it out.

The doctors aren’t yet sure if the lump is cancerous or not and Samie currently awaiting surgery to have half her thyroid removed and get it tested.
"I shouldn't be upset because I'm so grateful that people messaged so I've caught it now and I'm so grateful that I had the opportunity to get it removed and get it sorted,” said Samie.
"But it is still just really scary."
