Love Island's Zara claims huge unaired row with Tom had her in tears



Love Island star Zara has claimed she had a huge row with Tom which left her on tears, but it was unaired.

The Islander had become a fan favourite before she departed the ITV2 show last week, when she was dumped from the South African villa. Before she exited the show, she enjoyed a brief romance with Tom - but they soon cooled things off.

Now Zara has claimed she had a massive row with the footballer, which she said came out of nowhere. She said the villa row, which was unaired, left her in tears and happened just before everything kicked off during the challenge.

Speaking to Grazia, she said: "The argument with Tom was unaired and it’s weird that it wasn’t aired actually - context wise it would have made sense why the challenge went the way it did. Me and Tom had an amazing day – it was probably the best day we had together in the villa. We got ready for the evening and me and the girls were sitting by the firepit.

"Then Tom come storming over like 'Zara, come here, I need to talk to you.' He was literally raging."

She added: "I went to touch his shoulder but he squirmed away from me. He said, 'The boys and everyone else have been saying all this stuff about you. Apparently, you fancy Aaron and you’ve been using Shaq to make me jealous.'"

Zara then explained that the challenge happened soon after that, and what Tom had said had made her think people were speaking about her behind her back. She claims Tom later admitted he "would have picked her for all three but he thought it'd be boring".

The model and dancer slammed Tom for worrying too much about what people think about him.

In a separate interview, Zara said splitting from Tom was the best thing for her.

"I genuinely think me and Tom calling it a day was the best thing that we could have done because we weren’t ever actually on the same page. Like a flame, we burned quick, and it was just more physical attraction," she said, "The fact we weren’t each other's types intrigued us to try and make a go of it, but ultimately it didn’t work out." - ChatGPT autoblogging and content curation plugin for WordPress
