  • Demi Jones has revealed how she came to appear on the winter series of Love Island.
  • While doing an Instagram Q&A, she told fans she didn't apply in the traditional way.

It's no secret not all Love Island contestants who appear on the show go through the process of filling out an application form.

Last year's winner Amber Gill previously revealed she was scouted rather than going through the traditional channels. Now, Demi Jones has also revealed she was approached in a similar way.

Demi was doing an Instagram Q&A with fans when someone asked her how she got on the show. Recalling the life-changing moment, the 21-year-old shared: "I was at work one day and I was scouted on Instagram and I literally screamed my head off."

Demi went on: "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."

She also gave an update on her relationship with Luke M, revealing they've become even closer since leaving the show.

"Me and Luke are doing so good since leaving the villa, I actually feel like we've become closer," she said.

"I don't really know how that's happened because we're not together all the time, but distance makes the heart grow fonder."

Oh, and if you're in the market for some advice on how to be scouted, winner Amber previously told us: "Just be yourself, always. Don’t even try to stand out – I was always my self. Be true to yourself, be honest.

"If you stand out, you stand out – not everybody has a massive personality, I just happened to be a big personality. You don’t have to be the loudest one in the room."
