That Feeling When You Realise You’ve Accidentally Ghosted ‘Love Island’ Star Tommy Fury

Since entering the Love Island villa, Tommy Fury has captured the hearts of the nation with his baffling lexicon, questionable culinary skills and of course his adorable treatment of Molly-Mae Hague.

Yep, it’s fair to say that most fans have been crushing on the 20-year-old boxer night after night – so imagine the devastation you’d feel if you realised that you’d already had a shot with Tommy, but hadn’t a clue until he turned up on the dating show.

That’s exactly what happened to Hollie Walker, who matched with Tommy on Tinder on 23rd May but didn’t notice his messages until he was already in the villa two weeks later.

The 19-year-old from Lincolnshire told Pretty52 how the pair were chatting away on the dating app, but she was “absolutely heartbroken” after realising she hadn’t spotted his reply.

Hollie even took screen shots of Tommy’s Tinder profile, in which the boxer poses in a checked jumper and jeans, and a flirty text exchange between the pair.

She told Pretty52: “I literally sent him one message as you can see from the screen shots, he double messaged me back and then messaged me again when I didn’t reply but then he went into the villa.

“I had ‘dancer’ in my Tinder profile because I’ve always danced and I used to be in full time dance training.”

Despite describing Tommy’s chat as “okay”, Hollie admits he “looked good” in his Tinder profile – but she had app notifications turned off so didn’t see his reply until it was too late.

Describing the moment she saw Tommy enter the villa, Hollie told us: “He came on and I was like, wow, he’s really fit and lovely and that. And then it clicked that he was the one I had matched and I was just sat laughing a bit, and messaged my friend saying ‘You’ll never guess what hahaha.'”

She added: “I watch Love Island religiously and I do every year, he seems very lovely! Him and Molly are very well suited.”

It’s clear that Tommy hasn’t been using Tinder in the villa, as his account is now reads: “Deleted this. Catch me on Love Island this summer.” You’d be kicking yourself, right?

Tommy if you’re reading this, Hollie says she’d still be up for a drink. You’re welcome.
