'Love Island' Fans Have Serious Thoughts On The Luke Mabbott/Lucie Donlan/Demi Jones Drama
In case you're unfamiliar, here's a little recap, because while for some people lockdown has merely been a case of staring at the same four walls, for Love Island's Luke M, it's been an eventful few months.
Basically, the 25-year-old Justin Bieber lookalike (who is actually a heating engineer) and Demi, 22, split in May. And now, Luke has found love with last summer's Love Island contestant, Lucie Donlan, 22.
They are seriously loved up. And fans have had a few thoughts on the matter to say the least - with many not even realising Luke and Demi had parted ways.
It all started back in June when Lucie posted a bikini selfie, with the caption: "Just recently I've been catching feelings....not flights."
Just a few days later and Demi posted her own snap, captioned: "Honey.. you should take my advice catch that flight, not the feeling."
And on Twitter earlier this week, she tweeted: "Girlllllllll, know your worth," followed by a yawning emoji.
It's worth pointing out that when a fan responded to the tweet, asking if it was about Luke M and Lucie, Demi said it was not.
"No it really isn't, actually just felt like tweeting it because us gals need to be reminded sometimes lol, Twitter reads into things too deep x," she said.

Anyway, things have really ramped up a notch over the weekend, with Lucie and Luke looking more loved-up than ever in Cornwall, spending time surfing, chilling on the beach and even partaking in their first TikTok video.
Luke even referred to Lucie as his "partner in crime" after making them Insta official in a post on his grid. Lucie, commented on the snap writing: "Youuu" followed by some heart eyes emojis and a couple of surf boards.
And now, followers have been weighing in on the drama, with one writing: "I know we're all missing Love Island this summer but man this Demi x Lucie x Luke M 'drama' is something else" followed by screen grabs of some of the posts, including one of Lucie's - also from June - captioned: "Dear tummy...Sorry for all the butterflies lately. I swear it's not my fault.. it's his."
Loads of followers tweeted to say they had no idea Lucie and Luke were a couple, while one simply wrote: "This hot tea tho".
Another wrote: "I am LIVING for this" while one admitted: "Ok yes I am here and present for this."

Others had a lot of feelings specifically about one of the alleged reasons behind Luke and Demi's break up.
At the time, it was reported that social distancing and the hundreds of miles between Demi's Portsmouth home and Luke's Yorkshire pad, played a part in the split.
And many fans are confused, especially since Lucie lives in Newquay, Cornwall.
"So Luke and Demi broke up because of distance so now he goes for Lucie who lives in CORNWALL," said one.
"I literally don't care about love island S6 but Luke M really broke up with Demi bc of long distance only to start dating Lucie who lives even further away," added another.

Of course, no one truly knows what happened in a relationship apart from those involved and we really wish Lucie, Luke and Demi all the best.
And speaking of loved-up Islanders, it seems there could be a Lucie/Luke M/Siannise/Luke T double date on the cards after Luke T commented on Luke M's post writing: "Double date but no surfing".
Yesss, make it happen guys!
