Tom Clare has become a Love Island All Stars favourite so what do we need to know about him? From his football team to his height, here are the all-important details.

Love Island All Stars welcomed Tom Clare in as a bombshell and following lots of flirting with Georgia Steel and Arabella Chi, he has officially set his sights on Molly Smith.

Coming third in is OG series of Love Island in 2023 with now-ex Samie Elishi, and looking like a popular contestant for 2024, we thought it was time we took a closer look at the football star and what we really need to know about him.

From his age (which has shocked most Love Island viewers!) to his height and his football career - here are all the important facts a true fan should know.

Who is Love Island's Tom Clare?

Age: 24

From: Skelmersdale, Lancashire

Job: Footballer

Prior to entering the villa the first time around, he said a "stuck up" girl is the worst trait in the opposite sex, even if she was a 10/10.

He described himself as a "good laugh" and "vibe" and said you wouldn't see him do anything "snakey" in the villa.

How tall is Love Island's Tom Clare?

It's fair to say Tom's height has been a major winning factor for the girls of the villa.

At 6ft 5inches, in 2023 he was the tallest in his OG villa until bombshell Jordan came in and matched it. He remains the tallest in the Love Island All Stars villa.

What football team does Tom Clare play for?

Tom is a semi-professional football player who played for Macclesfield FC and can proudly say he was the teams top scorer during the 2012/22 season.

Tom was originally granted an "extended period of leave" so he could appear on Love Island 2023 and despite insisting he would carry on playing, he quit the team in the summer of 2023.

At the time he said: "Where do I start… this club has been right behind me throughout everything, the most I’ve ever enjoyed my football has been at this special club, the good times are unmatched and we’ve created memories that I will remember for the rest of my life.

"The decision for me to leave has been my decision and has been so tough, but now in my life there’s just too many opportunities that I just cannot turn down and moving down to London plays a huge part in that."

Who are Love Island Tom Clare's family?

Tom's family have remained out of the spotlight while he does his thing in South Africa but have stepped forward to say how proud of him they are.

His sister Laura, who is an influencer, shared a family photo on Instagram during his 2023 stint and wrote: "We are always more than proud of you."
