Love Island All Stars viewers were left baffled to learn about Tom Clare’s unlikely celebrity friends during Monday’s final.

The Macclesfield FC footballer, 24, was crowned the winner alongside Molly Smith, 29, during the live final, beating her ex Callum Jones, 27, and Jess Gale, 24.

But ahead of the result, both couples sat down with presenter Maya Jama to talk about their time on the show, with Tom receiving good luck via a video message from football legends Rio Ferdinand and Robbie Savage.

On X, formerly Twitter, a viewer asked: “Tom is an amateur striker, why is he friends with Rio Ferdinand?”

While another wrote: ‘Tom’s friend is Rio Ferdinand??? WTF, who is this guy?

A third asked: ‘Rio Ferdinand and Robbie Savage hanging around with Tom? I have many questions’.

And: ‘Ro Ferndinand and Robbie Savage “Tom’s Friends”‘.

While another joked: “Tom being partners with Robbie Savage and Rio Ferdinand is the most random part of this year’s series.”

After being declared winners, Tom told host Maya Jama “my jaw dropped,” while Molly visibly shook while shouting “what the hell.”

Speaking ahead of the final result, Molly admitted the Love Island experience has “forced” her to be friends with her ex Callum.

She also said she was “grateful” to have had the chance to get closure, but insisted there would be no “fairytale ending” for the pair.

Speaking about navigating the romance inside the villa with her ex there, Molly said: “I think obviously, looking from the outside, people won’t understand it.”

“We’re in an intense environment and you have to get along, so that forced us to be friends.

On X, formerly Twitter, a viewer asked:

“We probably wouldn’t be at this stage on the outside, it probably would have been a bit uncomfortable, but I feel like it’s taken us to a place we would never have gotten to, and I’m really grateful for that.” .’

Discussing how viewers had been keen to rekindle their relationship, presenter Maya said she could “relate” as people had been encouraging her to get back together with her ex-partner, grime star Stormzy.

She said: “A lot of people told me I should get back with my ex – sometimes it’s not what you’re ready for.”

Molly, who was emotional after being crowned the winner, has admitted she sees a long-term future with Tom.

Following Tom and Molly's win, the Love Island All Stars cast took to the stage to congratulate the couple.

She said: ‘It was all meant to be. I wouldn’t consider it if I didn’t see that this is something serious on the outside.

Tom is also determined to continue their romance in the outside world.

He said to Molly, “I really see that you are my girlfriend.”

After splitting in September 2020, Molly and Callum were stunned to reunite in the All Stars villa in a launch night twist – but both opted not to explore the possibility of rekindling their romance.

Viewers were hoping the couple would get back together after entering the villa last month after splitting following a three-and-a-half year relationship in September last year.

But in the grand final, Molly was paired with Tom, while Callum was paired with Jess, ending any hopes of a last-minute reunion.
