What has Tommy said about Love Island?
In a bold statement, Tommy said: "I feel like I’ve got a unique personality and Love Island is a good place to showcase it."
He continued: "I’m fun, bubbly, good to get along with and just really easy-going.
"I won’t be afraid to go and have a splash about in the pool, I’ll mingle with people and find out about everyone because at the end of the day I’ll be living with these people for a long time so it’ll be nice to see if I have a bromance in there, along with a relationship.
"It’s nice to be a bit standoutish."
