Love Island Grace Jackson's money-spinning businesses outside the villa - as she insists men 'can't keep up' with her life

Love Island Grace Jackson's money-spinning businesses outside the villa - as she insists men 'can't keep up' with her life

Grace Jackson might be a Love Island bombshell - by outside of the villa it's more like The Apprentice, with the star running two businesses out of Manchester.

The 25-year-old can comfortably put any suspicions that she’s chasing Joey Essex for fame and money to bed, given she is not only a model but is also a successful businesswoman. In fact, her firms keep her so busy she has said in the past her schedule is too packed for a relationship.

One of Grace’s two businesses is called Social Clubhouse, a social media management agency that pledges to elevate its customers’ brands and digital presence. It revolves around social management, influencer marketing and content creation.

Their Instagram account, which currently has over 2,000 followers is peppered with great digital advice, as well as statistics on how much Social Clubhouse can increase a client’s views and engagement.

The business is growing and recently posted a job advertisement on its Instagram page for a part-time social media and influencer assistant in Manchester. Any big fans of Grace could end up working directly for her. Might be best not to mention TOWIE in the interview, though.

As if running one business wasn’t enough, Grace’s other venture is an events company called Vamos. If Social Clubhouse is all business, then Vamos is all party. Its Instagram bio reads: “Immerse yourself into the soul, freedom and liberation that is Vamos.”

The Vamos page is filled with photos of Grace at fancy events, and the dates of the next parties that she and her team will be throwing in Manchester. Famous people who have attended Vamos parties and played music at them include singer Blair Suarez, The Flag Twins, and DJ Reuben Valentine.

Grace has said that she enjoys being single because she likes to travel and to go out, and that men can’t keep up with that. She is kept busy by her businesses and her lifestyle and does not want to be held down by a relationship.

In the villa, Grace and Joey both admitted that it was their busy lifestyles and packed schedules that forced them to break up the last time they were together. Grace was clearly hoping, however, that in the villa with no distractions things might work out differently for the pair. Sadly it looks like Joey has fallen head over heels for new bombshell Jessy Potts.

Viewers have called Joey out for his “red flag” behaviour after he told Grace that “nothing had changed” between them after he told the other islanders that he had a stronger connection with Jessy than with Grace. When Jessy then asked him to be in a couple with her Joey appeared over the moon about it, hurting Grace in the process.
