Are they or aren’t they? Too Hot to Handle‘s Francesca Farago and The Only Was Is Essex star Demi Sims fueled romance rumors by sharing a steamy kiss on social media on Saturday, January 16.
The Netflix star, 27, shared a snapshot of herself and the English TV personality, 23, kissing in bikinis. Demi held onto Francesca’s waist in the sexy photo. The Canadian influencer captioned the post with a simple red heart emoji, while Demi posted the same photo to her own Instagram page along with a second shot prior to the smooch. “Swipe for a kiss,” she captioned the images.
The makeup artist commented on Francesca’s post with the acronym “LOML,” which stands for love of my life. The Farago the Label founder replied, “My baby.”
The dynamic duo sparked romance rumors because of their flirty comments to one another on social media. Just days prior to the kissing photo, Francesca commented on a photo of Demi in a bikini. “You’re perfect baby,” she wrote to her rumored girlfriend, who responded with, “You’re mine baby,” and a red-heart emoji.
The former law student was most recently linked to Bachelorette alum Jef Holm, whom she was spotted kissing at LAX in September 2020. Prior to her fling with the Bachelor Nation alum, Francesca dated fellow Too Hot to Handle star Harry Jowsey before splitting in June 2020.
Additionally, the former Ottawa resident was previously linked to Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino and was rumored to be dating Love Is Blind star Damien Powers, though both parties squashed the speculation.
In September 2020, Francesca opened up about the difficulties of dating in the public eye. “It’s hard because I go out to dinner or I just start talking to someone casually, and there’s photographers or it gets blown up,” she explained in a video posted to her YouTube channel.
As for Demi, she dated Ex on the Beach alum Leonie McSorley from July to December 2020. Prior to that relationship, she was linked to Love Island U.K. alum Megan Barton-Hanson and Made in Chelsea star Olivia Bentley. She is the first bisexual female to appear on The Only Way Is Essex.
