Love Island’s Tom Clare’s family life as they speak out to support him amid backlash

The family of Love Island star Tom Clare have spoken out to defend him after being accused of leading on three women in the villa.

After the 23 year old, from Barnsley, shared a secret kiss with Ellie Spence while coupled up with Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown, which led to accusations that he was stringing Olivia Hawkins along, his sister stepped in to offer her support.

Laura Clare, an influencer with more than 15,000 Instagram followers, shared a photo of the sibling duo at a restaurant with their parents.

"We are always more than proud of you," she wrote.

Laura, who lives in Dubai, took to the app just two weeks earlier to celebrate the success of her "baby bro" on the show.

Uploading a photo of herself in a bikini next to the bronzed and topless Love Island star, she captioned it: "Still feels crazy watching you on the telly!

"Excited for the world to see what a talented, charming, kind young man you are. Always proud to be your sister, let’s go!"

Tom's sister is friends some famous faces, including former Love Island star Laura Anderson and Married at First Sight's Chanita Stephenson.

As well as having an amazing relationship with his sister, the Macclesfield footballer is also close with his mum and dad.

Tom shared adorable photos of him with his parents in a sweet Instagram post where he thanked them for their unwavering support.

Pictured with his mum and dad as they cheered him on from the side of the football pitch, he wrote: "Wouldn’t be anything without my Mum and Dad, love you both to bits."

Another important member of the Clare was their pet dog, Marley, a gorgeous golden Labrador who sadly passed away two years ago.

Tom described his bond with Marley as "unbreakable" and said he was his "best friend who I miss every day".

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX.
