Tom is a personal trainer, and she confirmed their relationship on Instagram by posting a video of them doing a couples' workout.

Why did Laura and Paul split up?

Laura and Paul split soon after they left the villa, and she later told OK! magazine: "When we came out of the villa there was a lot of work-related things we did together and then Paul went away for three weeks.

"He went to the Burning Man festival in America and he couldn't get phone signal for a week. I was absolutely fine with that. I trusted him not to do things with other girls, which he didn't.

"I was hoping that when he came back we'd spend more time together and build a proper relationship out of the villa. It didn't happen."

A source also told The Sun at the time: "Laura and Paul have been so busy since the show finished and both had holidays planned without each other โ€“ so have ended up spending a lot of time apart.

"Paul went to New York for modelling work and on to Burning Man while Laura enjoyed some time back in Dubai where she lived before signing up to Love Island."
