Love Island legend speaks out to defend Tom and his family after revealing they are secret friends | The Sun

LOVE Island legend Laura Anderson has defended Tom Clare after he and his family were targeted by trolls following his antics in the villa.

The blonde stunner, who appeared on the show in 2018, also revealed she is friends with the Clare family, especially Tom's sister Laura.

Writing on Instagram, Islander Laura said: "Let's all be kind to real people, real lives, real emotions and real families.

"Love Island isn't your normal dating set up hence the drama and emotions running high for our entertainment so let's keep that in mind, give these guys a break once in a while and just support our faves because tomorrow it all changes anyway let's be honest. Only love."

Tom’s family broke their silence on his Love Island row with Olivia and Zara after viewers called for him to be kicked out of the villa.

Fans turned on Tom over his secret kiss with Ellie Spence that saw him then blame her for the snog when confronted by partner Olivia.

Tom's influencer sister Laura shared a photo of them both with their parents at a restaurant and said: "We are always more than proud of you," tagging her brother in the post.

The 23-year-old semi pro footballer had been stringing three different girls along but was rumbled this week when news of his kiss with Ellie spread throughout the villa.

Their smooch was exposed after Ellie told Will, who proceeded to tell Tanya, who rushed to tell Zara.

Zara was seen calling out for Olivia as she felt the actress deserved to know the truth.

Zara told her: “I’ve just been told by Tanya that Ellie and Tom kissed.”

Olivia replied: “Are you joking?”

Fuming Olivia added: “‘I want to explore it again’ my a***, are you serious?”

Getting more angry she said: "And he comes and tells me that he ‘sees her as a friend’?”

Afterwards, things continued to escalate as the other islanders shared their opinions on the situation, with tensions reaching boiling point after Zara confronted Tom in front of all the other boys.

She said: "I feel like everything that's come out of your mouth is absolute b******t and I feel like you're playing a massive game and I'm sure your parents are proud of you because you're showing your true colours now."

The next morning, Tom cleared the air by apologising to Olivia for hurting her and to Ellie for not being honest about his emotions, but said he had nothing to say to Zara.

Last night he coupled up with Ellie, resulting in Zara being sent home.
