It’s been over a year since History and Archaeology graduate Demi Jones became a household name when she entered the Love Island villa as a bombshell.
She might not have found everlasting love after her relationships with Nas Majeed and Luke Mabbott came to an end but Demi has gone on to launch a successful career as an influencer off the back of the show, having worked with the likes of SHEIN and Project Lip.
Now, in one of her biggest moves yet, Demi is launching a clothing edit with Missguided. In honour of her incredible new venture, here’s everything you need to know about the Love Island 2020 star…
Who is Demi Jones?
Demi Jones is a reality star who rose to fame on the first ever winter edition of Love Island in 2020. Prior to that, Demi studied History and Archaeology at the University of Winchester and worked as a fashion advisor at a boutique.
Where is Demi Jones from?
Demi originally hails from Portsmouth.
How old is Demi Jones?
Demi’s birthday is 2 July 1998, so she’s currently 22 years old.
Where did Demi Jones finish on Love Island 2020?
After arriving in the villa as a bombshell on day 16, Demi immediately took a shine to Nas Majeed and they coupled up two days later. She chose to remain loyal when Nas went to Casa Amor with the rest of the boys, although he left he single when he returned from the villa with Eva Zapico.
Romance later began blossoming between newly single Demi and Justin Bieber lookalike Luke Mabbott and they coupled up on day 33, despite Shaughna Phillips also showing an interest in Luke.
Is Demi Jones still with Luke Mabbott?
Although they continued their relationship outside the villa, things between Demi and Luke just weren’t meant to be and they split just a few months later in June 2020. Shortly before they split, Luke was rumoured to have cheated on Demi with a university student although he has always denied this is true.
Demi later confirmed she and Luke had parted ways as lockdown meant they weren’t able to see each other. “It is a shame because he is a lovely boy and we’re all amicable and friendly, but unfortunately when we came out of the villa I realised my energy wasn’t being reciprocated with Luke on effort levels and such,” she told Metro.
“We drifted [apart] and obviously we’re so far away in lockdown which is a shame, but I wish him all the best.”
What has Demi Jones said about Luke Mabbott’s relationship with Lucie Donlan?
Demi and Luke may have seemingly ended on good terms, but she caused quite the stir when he went public with new girlfriend Lucie Donlan as she appeared to suggest there may have been a crossover in their relationships.
In a YouTube video, Demi explained, “All of a sudden, I cannot remember the precise day, he rung me out of the blue and was like, 'I need to end it and I need to end it now' - it was quite sudden. Very shortly after, I actually received some photos in my DMs from a fan that has spotted Luke and Lucie in Cornwall together. This was probably less than two weeks after the public break up.
“I went back through all of Lucie's profile to see if there was anything on there that maybe I might see that they're together, and I noticed all these cryptic captions with loads of 'shh' emojis and about getting butterflies and secret eyes. And I put two and two together and they obviously must have started talking during lockdown."
After he and Lucie were inundated with abuse from trolls in the wake of Demi’s video, Luke took to social media to set the record straight.
He said, “Me and Demi split up on the 29th of May, that's when Lucie checked with me - a couple days after, a week after or something - to see if I was single and then we went on a date 17th June which wasn't in Cornwall, so I don't know where she's got Cornwall."

Did Demi Jones date Jamie Clayton?

Although their followers were clearly keen for a romance, neither Demi nor Jamie ever confirmed or denied they were together, and he later went public with new girlfriend Jordanne Duggan. It appears Jamie could be back on the market though, as he’s deleted all trace of Jordanne from his Instagram.
Demi Jones’ weight loss transformation
In January 2021, Demi revealed that she had lost three stone in two years as she opened up about her weight loss journey and shared never-before-seen pictures of her transformation.
"I’ve always been too scared to post these, but I do want to show how much weight I’ve actually lost. Since coming out of the villa, I’ve put a few pounds on, obviously because of lockdown etc. but in general I’m literally so proud," Demi wrote alongside the snaps.
The influencer then went on to explain how she lost the weight with Slimming World, despite not following their ideals “strictly”. She also admitted that she had been “unhealthily” maintaining her weight before appearing on Love Island by going “to the gym every day” which she soon realised was unsustainable.
Demi Jones’ thyroid cancer scare
Demi broke down in tears in an emotional Instagram post in April 2021 as she revealed she found a lump that doctors think could be cancerous. She told fans she was “shocked” as she left her hospital appointment after being told she could have thyroid cancer.
Demi said, “I went to go get the results today for my lump and they think it could be cancerous. I've got to go have it operated and removed. I'm worried, but I'm sure it will be fine. It's just a shock because you just don't think. I was sat there in the waiting room and it was full of old people and I was the only young one there.
“I know loads of women go through this so I'll be fine. It might not even be cancerous. They've got to cut it out to be sure. I'm just a bit shocked at the moment. I'll be ok, I'll get it removed and I should be fine."
Demi updated her fans a few weeks later after having surgery to get the lump removed.
She told her followers that she was "very sleepy and painful" but said the surgery "went really well. "The lump on my thyroid was as big as a golf ball," she wrote on Instagram.
“The NHS staff at QA Portsmouth have been unbelievable! ❤️ and thank you for all your messages they have made me tearful.”
