Ellie Spence and Tom Clare Wiki, Biography
The new season of Love Island returns this winter on ITV with a big change to the format. Previously, the UK-based dating show used to feature bombshells (newcomers/singles) in the second or third episode. But ITV has now decided to welcome a bombshell in the premiere episode of Love Island 2023.
On January 12-13, the network ran a voting poll asking viewers to choose a new entrant between two bombshells: Ellie Spence and Tom Clare.
The official synopsis for the reality television show reads: “A group of men and women participate in a series of tasks with a couple who exchange until they find the love of their life.”
The results will be shown on Love Island Season 9 Episode 1 which will air on Monday 16th January 2023 on ITV2 at 9pm. m. GMT (4:00 PM ET).
Bombshells of Love Island 2023: Ellie Spence works in a law firm while Tom Clare is a footballer
One of the bombs will enter the village of Love Island, located in South Africa, in episode 1, while the other will be sent a day or two later.
Who is Ellie Spence?
Ellie Spence is one of the first Love Island 2023 bombshells who can enter the villa in Episode 1. The 25-year-old Norwich native is a business development executive at a law firm.
In the introductory video of her, she stated:
“I think people are very surprised when they find out that I work in a law firm. I feel like I try to put my professional face on everything I can, but to be honest, I’m just as wild at work as I am outside of work. So you know I’m going wild, like, Monday through Friday. I have no filter, like, I’m a big sharer.”
The bio of her on the ITV site indicates that she has been single for three years and she is the type of person who can fall in and out of love rather quickly. She described herself as “a party girl” who refuses to go home from a party.
Explaining what kind of man she’s not looking for in her ITV biography of her, she said:
“Overconfident guys and guys who think they can get any girl when they think they’re in shape and a 10/10 when really they’re none of the above. I like confidence but not arrogance.”
In the Love Island Instagram post, Ellie mentioned:
“I will bring drama, fun, and a bit of unpredictability.”

Who is Tom Clare?
Tom Clare is the other Love Island 2023 bombshell who can enter the villa in the premiere episode. The results of the viewer voting will be announced in Episode 1, which will show if Tom is the first to join the original lineup of contestants in Episode 1.
Tom, 23, is a native of Barnsley and a semi-professional footballer. He shares a good mentor-student relationship with former Welsh professional footballer Robbie Savage. The latter is the manager of Tom’s football club, Macclesfield.
In an interview, Robbie reacted to Tom’s involvement in Love Island. He said:
“I’m really excited for the guy who will get on the plane to South Africa, where the show is filmed, as a non-league 6’5″ unknown center forward and get to come home a TV star. How can he? deny that opportunity?
Meanwhile, Tom claims in the ITV biography of him that he “isn’t a snake” as he believes in solving problems by talking to someone face to face. He describes himself as “loyal, trustworthy, family oriented” and “protective”.
Tom has mentioned in the ITV biography of him that he wants a loyal partner and that he is ready to get married. He said:
“My family knows how loyal and genuine I am. I would do anything for anyone and I always treat someone the way they treat me.”
“Since my ex-girlfriend, no one has really come to me and I’ve been like, ‘Wow.’ Until I have that, I’m really not going to settle for less. Not in a bad way, but the next person I take, I want to get married ”.
