Leonie signed up to the MTV reality show with Ché. The twins appeared on the 2017 series and were some of the most talked-about participants that summer.

Notably, Leonie was the subject of some cruel trolling about a skin condition she suffered from. Leonie explained that she got a skin condition from sun beds that affected her pigment.

The trolling became so bad that Leonie addressed it on Twitter in August 2017.

Leonie and Demi Sims’ relationship

It is unconfirmed when exactly Leonie got together with TOWIE star Demi. The couple have publicly displayed their feelings over the past few weeks. Demi commented on one of Leonie’s Instagrams with a love heart on April 13th, 2020 so it’s clear the couple had been speaking before then.


Although Demi announced the couple were official on June 20th, Leonie had actually announced it to her Instagram followers the day before. They both used the same couple photo. In Leonie’s post, she captioned: “Wifed off”

Ever since they became Instagram official, the two have not shied away from PDA. In one Instagram post of Leonie’s, Demi commented “THATS MY BABY,” with plenty of heart-eyed emojis.

They are now pretty serious, with Demi revealing to her sisters Chloe and Frankie that she is in love. In the first episode of TOWIE season 26, Demi said: “We just fell for each other, just bang in love. I like being in love.”
