Partying with A-List celebs and modelling: Inside Love Island All Stars’ Arabella’s glam life

She’s 32, and living it up


Arabella has just been announced as a bombshell for the new Love Island: All Stars. She first appeared on the show in 2019, and since then has levelled-up her life to a whole new scale of glam.

She’s truly in the influencer world now. She’s a successful model, hangs out with celebs like it’s nothing and dates Premier League footballers. Naturally!

Here’s everything you need to know about the glam life Arabella Chi was living ahead of being a Love Island: All Stars bombshell.

Ahead of All Stars, Arabella was on Love Island 2019

Arabella was first on Love Island during the 2019 series – meaning she was in the villa for the same season as All Stars Islanders Anton and Chris. Everyone got a bit confused when Arabella entered the villa and said she’d never met Chris, but Arabella was dumped on day 25 of the show, and Chris didn’t enter as a bombshell until day 37.

There weren’t many iconic moments from Arabella in 2019, but it was hilarious when she rocked up as a bombshell and was lying on a sun lounger by the pool, causing Curtis Pritchard to dramatically whip his sunglasses off in shock.

Whilst on the show, Arabella was briefly coupled up with Danny Williams, but nothing came of their romance.

She’s 32 now, and a model and influencer

For work, 32-year-old Arabella is now a model and an influencer. She’s done shoots with brands such as GymKing, ASOS, My Protein UK and Women’s Health, and is also currently an ambassador for the fashion brand Fashion Nova. Arabella has done sponsored posts on Instagram recently with brands such as Superdry, Boohoo and Boux Avenue – to her 1.1million followers.

She started her career in the fashion industry at the age of 18 and over her career has modelled for several international fashion brands including Very UK, Accesorize, and New Look.

Arabella has dated other Love Island stars, and partied with A-List celebs

Among some of those Arabella has dated since Love Island 2019 are DJ Tom Zanetti, rugby players, footballers and Islanders. Most notably, after appearing on the show she dated another Islander, 2017’s Wes Nelson, for nine months.

The two apparently went on a date to see the Lion King and by December 2019 they were so loved up they moved into a flat together. They were both on each other’s Instagrams quite a bit and they went on a very nice looking holiday in the Maldives. However they split up during lockdown and apparently their age difference was a big factor.

Arabella was then spotted living the high life partying on a yacht with Leonardo DiCaprio, which caused people to wonder if they were dating. It turns out she was actually linked to Leo’s mate Richie Akiva, a New York nightclub tycoon. They apparently split in September 2023, after a brief relationship.

Arabella was most recently linked to Premiership footballer, Ruben Dias. She met him through mutual friends in September 2023, and the couple quietly dated for weeks. They were seen posting similar pictures on Instagram and occasionally getting papped together.

In January 2024, yes literally days before All Stars, it was revealed Arabella and Ruben had broken up. Despite being seen at the airport jetting off on holiday on New Year’s Day, Ruben apparently dumped her shortly after they returned.

In her All Stars promo clip, Arabella said: “I’ve been fortunate enough to hang out in Hollywood circles but I’ve still not found love. I might of recently have come out of a relationship but I’m ready to meet the man of my dreams, so get me back in that villa.”

Arabella does OnlyFans, and her account is currently free

Arabella currently has an OnlyFans account where the subscription starts from being free, which is probably an initial offer for a few months, before you have to pay. According to reports her setting up an account was part of a “celebrity fitness section” being added to the site in 2022.

Just a quick look on her Instagram and you can tell Arabella lives the finer life, jetting all over the world. She’s recently checked into locations such as St Tropez, Ibiza, Paris and Mallorca.
