‘But yeah, we talked about it, of course we’ve only been together for two months, so I guess I don’t know it’s up to you, isn’t it because you said you’re going to propose, so it’s up to Francesca. ‘
(Francesca) I never really thought about doing it myself until I met her, right when I met her, I thought it was me, it must be me who is going to do it. I already know how I’m going to do it, she won’t see it coming. ‘
Despite not being engaged, the lovebirds already have their ideal marriage in mind, with Demi sharing, ‘I think it depends on lockdown, we went to a new place on Monday, which is going to be a lot of fun.

‘Hopefully we will move back to Essex because I miss life in Essex. We definitely don’t want lockdown weddings because that’s not a vibe.
‘It must be like a post-pandemic, the very first thing I ever said to her was that we need a post-pandemic wedding in Italy at a vineyard, so I feel like we have to pull out all the stops. ‘

Influencer Demi, who has lived in London with Francesca for a month, stood by their decision when she explained, ‘I got her name tattooed on my butt just like the first week we met, yes literally 6 days later.
‘From the day I met Francesca she kept saying,’ I really want your name tattooed on me, I really want to do it, I love you so much ‘I just thought she was bluffing, I didn’t think she for real.
‘Then we were at this beach bar on a specific day and she was like I want to do it today, so then we went into a tattoo shop, didn’t we, and you finally got it done in my handwriting.
‘Yeah she wrote it down 30 times and then I picked the cute one with the heart on the I. Then I felt left out so I wanted to get her on my body first, she was like no I won’t let you do it .
‘She has no tattoos so this was her very first tattoo so I thought you had to figure out what it would look like, as for me I have a few so I was sure I wanted to do it and I was there until that time a week to think about it. ‘
While they may seem strong now, Chloe Sims’ younger sister confessed that her friends and family were initially worried about Francesca.

Demi shared: ‘She was literally like I came to Mexico to meet me and I was nervous because I have never met her before so I thought, what am I going to do, am I actually going to fly to Mexico alone and meet this girl that i have never met you? It was all crazy.
‘In my heart and in my head it felt like the right thing to do. My mom wanted to make sure she’s real, like flying to Mexico to meet this person you just met on social media.
‘All my friends also said the same things like,’ You’re crazy, don’t do that, that’s so dangerous’ and I was like no men, honestly, this girl, I feel like me and this girl have so much in common I must going to meet her. ‘
