The 21-year-old beauty made it to the final of the ITV2 reality show last month alongside her partner Luke, and although the couple are not officially boyfriend and girlfriend yet, Demi insists they’ve been going from strength to strength since the show ended.
‘Me and Luke are doing so good since leaving the villa, I actually feel like we’ve become closer’.
Demi also says the distance between them hasn’t been a problem so far, even though she hails from Portsmouth, whilst 24-year-old Luke lives in Redcar.
‘I don’t really know how that’s happened because we’re not together all the time, but distance makes the heart grow fonder’.
The beauty also spoke about how she was cast for Love Island – which saw her enter the villa as a bombshell after the show had already started – as she said she didn’t apply to be on the show and was instead scouted through Instagram.
During a Q&A session on her Instagram, she told fans:
‘I was at work one day and I was scouted on Instagram and I literally screamed my head off.
‘I thought I’m never gonna get on there, but I went to my audition and it just went on and on from there and I became a bombshell, next thing I know I’m walking into the Love Island villa’.
Demi’s blossoming romance with Luke comes after their fellow Islander Callum Jones recently named them as the couple he sees splitting up first.
Asked which of the finalists he believes will part ways first, Callum – who narrowly missed out on a place in the final alongside partner Molly Smith – said:
‘I would say Luke and Demi, but just because of distance’.
