Love Island 2019 star Joanna Chimonides has spilled the tea on her love life and we're obsessed.

We wouldn't be surprised to find that most of the love Islander's DMs are filled with messages from countless other influencers and celebs trying to shoot their shot, however when you've got a Hollywood A-lister sliding into your DMs that's a WHOLE other story.

But for season five's Joanna, that is actually what happened. Yep, after checking her Instagram, the Love Island babe found a DM from none other than Micheal B Jordan. Wow, a girl can only dream.

Chatting to The Sun, Joanna revealed, “There was someone two weeks and I can’t name names but oh my gosh, he’s from America and a famous actor.

“I actually did a TikTok and was choosing between certain people and I kept choosing this person.

“Literally next minute he was liking all my photos and stories two weeks in a row. Then he slid into my DMs and then unsent it.”

We did a bit of digging and turns out she rejected all the other FIT celebs and picked Michael.


So recently single Micheal probably saw Joanna's TikTok and thought he'd shoot his shot. Fair play tbh.

London girl Joanna Chimonides only entered the Love Island during Casa Amor week in season five, but she certainly made an impression and still has legions of devoted followers.

Joanna is always treating her fans to hilarious TikTok videos, in a recent clip, the influencer teased a 'third person ' in her relationship (we didn't even know she was in one, sneaky sneaky) after she had a tarot reading.

She captioned the video, "I’m sorry but.. do we wanna know or? 😂".

Her followers were a little confused by her confession, with many rushing to the comments to guess what or who it could be causing some potential drama.

One wrote, "Maybe it’s an annoying mom getting involved 😂."

Someone else said, "You are defo pregnant 😳".

Another added, "You still obsessed with them cards 😂."

Joanna has definitely had an eventful love life since bursting on our radar in 2019. As well as her ex Michael Griffiths, who decided to couple up with Joanna and leave poor old Amber Gill single, she has also dated England football player and all round fitty Ben Chilwell.

After Joanna was announced to appear on Love Island, reports suggested that Ben was annoyed, despite the footballer dumping her in 2018.

A source told the earlier publication, "Ben has been left furious by her going on the show even though he dumped her at the end of last summer because he wanted to be single.

"They had stayed good friends until when she told him she was going on Love Island. She thought Ben was partying too much and he thought she was the right person at the wrong time."

Who is Joanna Chimonides?

Joanna was a recruitment consultant from London but her career took a turn when she entered the Love Island villa as part of Casa Amor week in 2019.

What did Joanna Chimonides say to Michael Griffiths on Love Island?

After their fellow Islanders chose to save him over Joanna, many were taken aback by Michael's decision NOT to leave with her.

Joanna fumed, "If you found what you want then you better leave mate. But you clearly aren't so you're a f**king snake."

Speaking after her exit, Joanna said, "Part of me expected Michael to leave with me, however I don’t want to be in control of someone’s life journey and if he wants to continue in the villa, to get to know someone else or see where things go, I’ve got respect for that. It is a bit disappointing but I’d never hold that against him."

Chatting to heat Radio's Jordan Lee on an episode of heat's Under the Duvet, Joanna said, "I was scared as to what Michael was going to come out to.

"The next day after Aftersun I called him up and he was like 'oh, I didn't know you were going to call me up.' I was like 'I just want to check you're okay and not taking these comments to heart. There are trolls out there. Everything's okay, I'm okay. If you need advice, come to me. I'm here.'

"I've been checking up on him daily to check he's okay, because I think that despite what's going on you need to be there for that person. I'm mature and I'm a positive person and I've got on with it now. I feel good enough to turn round and go 'I'm here for you. Nothing's going to happen, but I'm still here."

Asked if she thinks producers purposely painted him as the 'villain,' Joanna explained, "Some of the stuff he says, you can't edit. [Him saying] 'Joanna made me feel like she isn't into me, so I'm going to see how things are with Amber;' you can't edit that.

"I said this to him over the phone. You can't edit that, and that's what I'm trying to say to you...You can't edit words."

What does Joanna Chimonides think about Amber Gill?

After being dumped from the villa, Joanna revealed she's on good terms with Amber. She said, "Me and Amber are on very good terms. We both were women about the situation we were in.

She admitted, "We've been friends for over ten years! We've always been there for each other, so when I turned around and he was there, my heart just melted.

"Jack's very protective of me."
