Chloe Sim’s younger sister Demi is soon to become the first bi-sexual cast member of The Only Way Is Essex.
22-year-old Demi will appear in the long-running reality show next series, which will air on ITVBe in February.
Ahead of filming, Demi revealed she’s currently single but is keeping an eye out because she’d like to have the first lesbian relationship on the show.
"I’d go for one of the cast, but all the girls are taken – and they’re all so straight," she said. "I’m worried to say who I fancy because I’ll be treading on people’s toes," Demi told New magazine.
However, Demi was soon persuaded to change her mind and admitted to harbouring a crush on Lauren Pope.

"She’s really hot," gushed Demi.
"As for the boys I’ve grown up with them, so they probably see me as more like a little sister," she added.
