Grace Jackson on Love Island 2024

Girl bossing and luxury living: Inside Grace’s incredible life outside Love Island 2024

The rest of us can only dream

Since joining as a bombshell, Grace Jackson has become a huge character in the Love Island 2024 villa. She’s coupled up with Joey Essex, been stolen, had drama and kept us on our toes the whole time.

And outside of the show, her life looks just as interesting too. She has her own businesses, models, lives it up on Instagram and has an incredible home.

So, here’s everything you need to know about Love Island 2024 cast member Grace Jackson, and a full insight into her life outside the villa.

Grace Jackson is 25 and from Manchester

Grace is 25 and from Manchester. Ahead of the villa she was working as a model and influencer, as well as a business owner. As a model she has worked on multiple campaigns, including with Rihanna’s brand Savage X Fenty and FashionNova.

When asked why she wanted to be on Love Island 2024, Grace said: “In my day and age, you don’t meet people on face value, it’s all off Instagram, Twitter and dating apps. Everything’s online! I’m excited to get to know someone on face value, and be somewhere where you’re forced to have a conversation and be a bit more open.

“This is something that would push me out of my comfort zone, I don’t really date a lot. I get myself in situationships with people I know that I shouldn’t give my time to!”

Before Love Island 2024, Grace was running two successful businesses

Grace owns two companies: A social management agency called Social Clubhouse, and she also runs an events company called Vamos.

Social Clubhouse, founded in 2021, focuses on “elevating your brand’s digital presence” through social management, influencer marketing and content creation. Grace runs the brand alongside fellow influencer, Gabbi Migas.

It looks as though Vamos is a Manchester-based events company, that has hosted some dates at Kitten in Manchester. Introducing what the brand does on Instagram, it posted: “Experience a night of freedom expressed through the fusion of electronic, Afrobeat and house melodies.”

Before the show, Grace said she’s single because the lifestyle of modelling and owning a business can put guys off. “I like to go out and go abroad a lot,” Grace said. “They can’t keep up with my lifestyle! It’s the life that I want, and it helps with my business. To sit in and be single, I can’t understand why I would do that in my peak and my mid-20s.”

Villa life isn’t any more fancy than what Grace is already used to, because she lives in an incredible penthouse with views across Manchester. Her stunning roof-top apartment comes with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, a wrap around balcony, and she has opted for a simple and modern aesthetic.

It looks as though there are some great facilities in the building she lives in, such as communal sitting areas, outdoor space, a swimming pool and a gym and sauna.

Grace used to date fellow Love Island 2024 cast member Joey Essex

As soon as Grace walked into the Love Island 2024 villa, Joey proclaimed that he already knew her. Earlier this year, before Love Island, Grace and Joey Essex dated for six weeks. Apparently things ended badly, and Grace has now clarified on the show that they spoke on the phone and Joey seemed to go a bit cold on her. They met on holiday and had a bit of a holiday romance, before returning to the UK.

MailOnline has reported Joey originally pursued Grace, and made loads of effort to wine and dine her, before ending things when it started to get more serious. Grace was apparently “hurt and confused” by this sudden end, as she thought things between them were going well. The pair have also said on the show that distance between them didn’t help.

She’s ‘spontaneous, fun and easy going’

Grace described herself as down to earth and easy to talk to, and when asked why she’s a catch, she added: “I’m very loyal! Once I really care about you, I’ll do a lot for you and I’ll always put you first. I very much wear my heart on my sleeve.”

She added her friends and family would describe her as “spontaneous, fun, kind, funny and easy going.”

Grace was born for the Love Island life, if her Instagram is to go by

As you could probably have already guessed, Grace’s Instagram is perfect. She is all set up for the post Love Island influencer life, with loads of pictures of her on holiday, in gorgeous outfits and hanging out in Manchester.

She typically holidays around the south of France, Marbella, Miami, Las Vegas, Mykonos and Ibiza. Her aesthetic is perfect, and everything on her feed is curated. She knows what she’s doing!
