Love Island's Eve Gale opens up about first date with TOWIE’s Demi Sims after confirming relationship

Love Island's Eve Gale opens up about first date with TOWIE’s Demi Sims after confirming relationship

The reality couple recently confirmed their romance

It's the crossover we never know we needed, as former Love Island star Eve Gale has confirmed she's dating TOWIE favourite Demi Sims.

For those unfamiliar with these members of British reality royalty, the former appeared on the 2020 series - as well as the All Stars version earlier this year - alongside twin sister Jess, and the latter has been an Essex staple since joining her family on the ITVBe hit back in 2018.

Eve, 24, has only dated men during her stint in the spotlight so far, yet sadly failed to depart the Love Island villa with a romantic partner both times.

Demi, 27, meanwhile came out as bisexual back in 2019, and has since made history for LGBTQIA+ representation on reality TV.

The House of Sims star has since enjoyed a series of high-profile relationships, including with another ex-islander, Megan Barton-Hanson, and Too Hot To Handle's Francesca Farago.

Yet, speaking to Diva Magazine just last month, Demi revealed she’d been single for three years.

However in an unexpected twist of fate, the TOWIE icon recently revealed she's actually enjoyed spending some one-to-one time with Eve in recent weeks, with the pair announcing their romance on Demi's own podcast, Sims Squared.

Demi Sims opened up on her first date with Eve Gale.

After noting that they had been friends for three years, Demi spilled the beans on what transpired to be the couple's first ever date.

"Me and Eve went on a date last week for anyone watching and it was our first date, wasn't it?" she teased.

To which Eve replied: "We kind of had other dates, but it's not been a date date. That was like our first date. I had the best time."

Demi then went on to open up about her first-date nerves, admitting: "I was nervous it was going to get awkward, you know because usually we've always got people around?

"I was thinking, 'Is there going to be any awkward silences?', then when I picked you up, you were chewing my ear off. I actually didn't get a word in.

"And then we got there, had a drink, had so much food... and yeah, it was quite a short date to be fair. It was quite a private date, though.

Eve claimed Demi is the only girl she'd date.

"Because we were in Amazonico and we were in this booth and everyone was behind us. People assume we're besties, don't they?"

And by the sounds of things, Eve seemingly has eyes for Demi right back.

"I said this to Demi, I never would actually go on a date with another girl," she confessed.
