LOVE Island star Joanna Chimonides has opened up on her shock after a famous American actor slid into her DMs.
The stunning star rose to fame on season five of the dating show, and she’s currently single and admitted to being “happy” with her own company.
But that hasn’t stopped famous faces sliding into her messages, including one person who completely took the blonde beauty by surprise.
In an exclusive chat with The Sun, Joanna shared: “There was someone two weeks and I can’t name names but oh my gosh, he’s from America and a famous actor.
“I actually did a TikTok and was choosing between certain people and I kept choosing this person.
“Literally next minute he was liking all my photos and stories two weeks in a row. Then he slid into my DMs and then unsent it.”
Joanna continued: “I was thinking one, how did you find me, and two don’t tease me. I would’ve 100 per cent gone ahead with it.”
But the star also said she’s enjoying single life, and shared: “I cringe at dating at the moment. I don’t know what’s wrong with me.
“I’ve got so used to being on my own and that’s all I see at the moment, it’s really bad. But I am just so work focused at the moment and all I want to do is focus on my work and focus on me.
“I want to get into a right place where I can put time and effort into a relationship. I think right now I wouldn’t be able to put my all into dating.”
And Joanna’s hard work has been paying off with the star sharing her delight at appearing in the official Christmas advert for JD.
The campaign is rooted in authentic, real-life scenarios – from JDin the local shopping centre to the ultimate teenage hang-out, the ‘JD Arcade’ – where competition and Christmas shopping are rife.
Speaking about her involvement in the ad, which is named ‘King of the Game,’ Joanna said: “It was absolutely incredible.
“I did last year’s one and when I found out I was doing it again this year I was crying, I was so happy. It was a massive arcade with different floors and it was all absolutely incredible.
“JD are an amazing brand. I love the Nike two-piece, it was the perfect outfit for it.
“Working with them, they invest you as a person and look at you and go ‘what can we see in this person’ and that’s what I love about them.
“They’re like a family to me and they invest in smaller influencers too which is amazing.” ‘King of the Game’ launches in JD stores, shopping malls and high streets for all your sports fashion essentials this Christmas.
