Love Island‘s Elma Pazar caught former TOWIE star Jon Clark’s eye during her time on the ITV2 show.
As soon as she left the villa during a double dumping along with Joe Garratt, Jon, 29, set about taking the Essex stunner out on a date.
A source exclusively told OK! online : “Jon was proper taken by Elma when he saw her on the show.
“The two of them have some mutual friends and as soon as she left the villa one of them told her about Jon’s interest.
“Elma was flattered and now Jon is just trying sort his diary so he can take her out on a date.
“Jon’s been really busy with work and isn’t keen on being in the spotlight too much so he’s hoping to keep him and Elma on the down low”.
Elma, 26, was coupled up with Anton Danyluk in the Love Island villa, but was sent packing from the show when the pair were voted one of the two least compatible couples by their fellow islanders.
Elma and Jon have friends in common in Essex and she has confirmed that she’s heading back to her job as a lash technician after leaving the villa.
She made the revelation as she chatted to Lorraine on Monday morning after her swift departure from the ITV2 match-making show.
While some stars from the show turn to an astonishing amount of club personal appearances, book deals and clothing ranges, Elma has confirmed she’s decided to return to her previous job.
When asked what she’d like to do after the show, she told the host: “So I’m a lash technician, so for me I can just go back to my normal job and carry on with that.”
“You’ve got great eyelashes,” Lorraine said. “And that’s how girls like their lashes?”
“Especially girls from Essex!” Elma laughed.
