It’s always interesting to see which couples survive after Love Island and which don’t. For Demi Jones and Luke Mabbot, their villa romance has already fizzled out.

Demi has opened up about their split to the Mail Online confirming that their break-up became official back in March, and that it was mostly Luke’s decision; “We’ve completely called it off now, I think it was brought about more from his behalf than mine, but we’re mutual and friendly.”

Given that soon after they left the villa was the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, the lockdown made it difficult for them to start a real relationship; “As lockdown went on, little effort was made so it was called off.”

Almost as soon as their relationship began they had to spend three months apart and Demi revealed; “I feel like there wasn’t a lot of effort made with communication, so we drifted as a result. It’s a shame and bad timing.”

The pair also don’t live close to each other which was also brought up between them while they were in the villa and Demi shared that; “With lockdown, it drove us apart and we live so far away from each other.”

Something else the 21 year old has also opened up about is how different life is now to how she expected when leaving the villa. Being in the final of such a hit show means you are almost guaranteed plenty of money-making opportunities afterwards.

These include promoting products, clothing ranges, brand deals as well as night club appearances. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic many of these have dried up. Demi, who came in third place with Luke said; “I came out of Love Island and I was so excited with a world of opportunity…”

However, lockdown has taken away many of these opportunities and she revealed that; “I’m sort of brought back down to earth with the lockdown. In a way, it’s been nice because it’s allowed me to spend time with my family and has kept me grounded.”

“At the same time I’ve been worried as I’ve missed out on quite a few opportunities, we’re definitely getting there now.”
