Tom's partner is Lateysha Grace's sister and she revealed Tom was single while he was still in the house this month.
Former Big Brother housemate Lateysha told MTV News: "Tom is an absolute d**khead, I really don't like him. He needs to have more respect for women as well. He's gone in there with my sister but I see him getting in showers with girls, flirting with girls and it's uncomfortable to watch.
"At the moment I think he's single, he doesn't know yet. My sister's just shocked, she's just watching it and seeing a different person. I feel like he's trying to be somebody he's not."
Lateysha went on to suggest that Tom was trying to replicate Stephen Bear's success before concluding: "I hate Tom, please get him out."
Tom did however make the final of Big Brother where he finished in fourth place.
But taking to Twitter today following last week's final, he announced: "For everyone wondering, I am no longer in a relationship😌"
Fellow BBUK housemate Lotan Carter replied: "I got you bud 💋💪🏼 #repair #bestrong #igotyou"
Appearing on Big Brother's Bit On The Side during the series, Lateysha complained about Tom's actions on the show: “Look, in my opinion, if I had a boyfriend, and he went into the Big Brother house, and he was getting in showers with girls and flirting with girls the way he is, I would be peed off, you know what I mean?”
She added: “It’s horrible for me to watch this as her sister.
"She’s upset and I don’t know what’s going to happen when he’s out of the house. Whether or not she’s going to be in a relationship with him... he’s the last person that should be giving relationship advice, let’s just leave it at that.”
Big Brother airs on Channel 5.
