Where Are Dami Hope and Indiyah Polack Now?
Dami and Indiyah struggled throughout their journey on the show, narrowly avoiding elimination in weeks six and seven after being spared by his fellow islanders. When Dami finally reconnected with Indiyah, they navigated through their issues, making it to the finals with her and finishing third. Dami worked as a Senior Microbiologist, and the Dublin resident is currently working as a Model. The duo is indeed in love and is trying to make their relationship work despite their differences.
Indiyah and Dami did an incredible photo shoot with PWR Magazine. In an interview with the magazine, they revealed the highs and lows of their relationship after exiting the villa. The former revealed, “I and Dami are a lot closer now since we’ve come out; it’s been easier as time goes along. “Every day, you learn more about each other, and I’ve gotten to know how he is as a normal person. Like, as opposed to in the villa, I didn’t know how he was in a normal setting and how he’d react to certain things, and as the days go by, you learn more of that.”
“It’s not easy; when we first came out, we had arguments, and they weren’t about my character flaws or his character flaws; it’s just that we’re in a new environment, and you’re still getting to know each other when you come out. “But our love has grown, and we’ve learned to appreciate the different things about each other,” Indiyah added. Her partner also agrees with her points and adds that their strength lies in their mode of communication.
Dami said, “We’re both great communicators. Every battle we’ve faced has strengthened us, so we’ve built an understanding of each other, which adds to that.” Both Dami and Indiyah are working as models. Indiyah is also the Marketplace Ambassador at Pretty Little Thing and the Boots Beauty Ambassador at BootsUK.
