The former Love Island star donned a full glam face for the impromptu shoot and styled her shiny hair in loose curls.

The top half of the TV personality’s dress had cut out, wraparound details, while the bottom half was shaped like a bodycon miniskirt.

Demi posed cross-legged and flashed fans a pout before heading into town.

It looked like fellow Love Islander Jess Gale would be joining Demi, with the social media model saying, ‘Can’t wait,’ below her boyfriend’s message.

It comes after Demi revealed that trolls accused her of ‘lying’ and sent her ‘nasty’ messages about her cancer diagnosis.

The beauty announced she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer last week and has reassured fans that while it is “ hard to digest, ” she’s “ fine. ”

Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Tuesday, Demi also candidly discussed how to be very tenacious about getting tested after her appointment was delayed for seven months due to lockdown.

Demi told hosts Susanna Reid and Bill Turnbull, “It was a bit hard to handle, it’s all very new to me and it’s moving very quickly, but I’m okay, that’s the main thing.”

Susanna also asked Demi about trolling on social media, saying she knows Love Island stars can be ‘targeted’.

WHAT IS THYROID CANCER?

Thyroid cancer is a rare cancer that affects the thyroid gland, a small gland at the base of the neck that produces hormones.

Women are two to three times more likely to develop it than men.

Thyroid cancer symptoms can include:

  • a painless lump or swelling on the front of the neck
  • swollen glands in the neck
  • unexplained hoarseness that does not get better after a few weeks
  • a sore throat that doesn’t get better
  • Difficulty swallowing

About 9 in 10 people live five years after diagnosis. Many of these have been cured and will have a normal lifespan.

Demi replied, ‘I’ve been really lucky not to have seen many trolls since I got out of the villa, but there are still people like that.

‘Even with my cancer, I have nasty comments. By saying things like “she’s lying” and I woke up and looked at my Instagram and thought “that’s ridiculous”.

Unfortunately there are such people. I don’t respond to anything, I never respond to trolls on social media, it’s not worth my time … But it makes me sad. ‘

Demi continued, “I’m not lying about this at all. It’s really serious business, I don’t want to go through this. ‘

The brunette beauty also revealed that her appointment was postponed from September to April during the pandemic.

She detailed, ‘It kept getting canceled every month, and I was so close to going private and paying because I was so scared.

My stepfather has cancer, so I knew I had to push for appointments. I was finally seen in April.

‘When I was seen I had my ultrasound and blood tests and both came back fine and they were going to send me on my way.

‘But I knew through him that I had to ask for more, more scanning or testing that you can do. And they offered to drain the fluids and it was what came back as potentially cancerous. ‘

Bill then asked the reality star, “So you really had to be persistent?”

Demi continued: ‘Yes exactly. And I think for my age most people would just accept that fact and say “ok and go away”, which is what I did on the original scan in 2019.

And speaking of what would have happened if she had ‘let the appointments move,’ Demi said, ‘Sadly, I should have lived with it.

“And if I hadn’t asked for additional testing, I wouldn’t have discovered the cancerous ethers, they literally would have sent me on my way.”

The Love Island star told her followers in an Instagram post last Thursday the news about her cancer, when she pledged to ‘stay strong’ and ‘bounce back stronger’ after the devastating diagnosis.

Demi has been keeping fans in the loop since she had surgery last month to remove the golf ball-sized lump in her thyroid gland.

Alongside a photo from a leaflet on Understanding Thyroid Cancer, she wrote: “Hi guys, I got my results today and unfortunately I have thyroid cancer. The tumor has been removed, but I now need more surgery to remove the rest of my thyroid. ‘

Demi vowed to ‘stay positive’ in the wake of the diagnosis, telling fans she’s a ‘strong girl’.

She continued: ‘I remain very positive and I am a strong girl so it will be fine thank you for your love and support always. I will bounce back stronger. ‘
