Since her arrival on TOWIE way back in 2014 as part of the iconic Sims sisters, Demi Sims has cemented herself as one of our favourite ever cast members.

From her rock solid relationship with her sisters Chloe and Frankie Sims to her honesty about being open with her sexuality and dating both women and men – we utterly adore her.

Demi has spoken openly about coming out when she was 19 after feeling “trapped” in her body before coming out as bisexual.

Demi has spoken openly about coming out as bisexual at the age of 19 during an appearance on close friend Vas J Morgan's I Am Enough podcast.

The youngest Sims sister explained, “Obviously you know I came out as bi at 19, but for three years prior to that I was hiding in the closet.

“So then for those three years, I really do see them as very dark days. I was trapped in a body that wasn't me.

“Now I feel like I obviously have that weight off my chest I'm in a happier place, but I do look back on those days like wow, what a dark place that was.”

The star also revealed that she had her first series girlfriend at 18 and it was her first serious relationship.
