The emotional 17-minute clip showed the TV personality discussing her recent terrifying health scare as she discussed her break-up from the passenger seat of her car ‘where she could get a break’
Love Island’s Samie Elishi has broken down in tears as she opened up on her break-up from fellow reality telly star Tom Clare for the first time since their split.
The Islander took to her YouTube video to tell fans the details around the end of her relationship.
The emotional 17-minute clip showed the TV personality discussing her recent health scare as she discussed her break-up from the passenger seat of her car “where she could get a break”.
“I never wanted to make this video,” the star began in the update.
She admitted she had never wanted to share a statement on the split either as she delved into the reasons for their break up.
“It is intense,” she said. “Me and Tom have broken up. It’s ended on good terms. No one’s done anything bad to each other, there’s still lots and lots of love there. It just wasn’t working on the outside and we both agreed on the majority of the things.
“There’s no bad blood there, me and Tom. I would never say a bad word about him and he wouldn’t about me.”
The star continued: “We just weren’t working on the outside. I feel like when you come out of the villa you’ve got so much pressure and so many other things to worry about that plays a huge factor in a relationship.
“It was just a lot more difficult to maintain outside of the villa.”
Samie explained that she hadn’t posted a statement straight away was because she was going through “personal stuff”.
Elsewhere in the clip, Samie revealed she is being tested for cancer after Love Island fans spotted a lump on her neck during the series.
“I thought me and Tom were going to live happily ever after but life happens,” she tearfully said, telling how she realised that she’d had a lump in her neck as she read DMs during a dinner with Millie Court and Chloe Burrows in the days after the break-up.
“It’s a 5cm lump on my thyroid,” Samie revealed.
The telly star then shared the difficult conversations she’d had with her doctors as they graded her lump a “grade 3,” and told her they can’t tell for sure if it’s cancerous or not and it’s a “grey area”.
As a result of the discovery of the lump, Samie is having surgery to remove half her thyroid.
Beginning to break down again, the Love Island favourite cried: “Basically what they do is they cut your neck… I shouldn’t be upset because I’m so grateful that people messaged and I’ve caught it now. I’m so grateful.
“But it is still obviously really scary. I’m a young girl, I’m realising how common it is now. I even saw Demi Jones went through it.”
Following the first operation, medics will test the lump to see if it is malignant and if it is, she will have to undergo a second surgery to remove the remainder of her thyroid.
Samie told fans she’s going to share her journey because she wants to help others and it’s so “important we all know about these things”.
Samie and Tom came third on the South African winter edition of the show earlier this year but announced the end of their relationship on Wednesday when Tom confirmed the pair had broken up with a statement posted on his Instagram.
She followed with her own statement a day later and told fans that after Tom’s upstate, she wanted to wait to explain to fans what had happened between them properly.
