t feels like 50 million years ago that Camilla Thurlow first appeared on our TV screens and found love with Jamie Jewitt, becoming a national treasure at the same time.

The pair are SO sweet and we’re certain they’ll be togetha foreva. They took all the big steps: moving in, meeting the parents, and recently, Camilla and Jamie announced they were engaged just months after she gave birth to their daughter Nell.

Fans had been waiting with bated breath for the arrival of baby Thurlow-Jewitt and some eagle-eyed followers thought they’d spotted an imminent birth announcement in a cryptic post by the Love Islanders.

However, they weren’t quite the savvy detectives they thought they were…

Camilla and Jamie have been in a totally loved-up baby bubble ever since welcoming Nell in October AND it turns out they were right about their gender prediction too

Just in case you need a refresher about the 2017 Islander, here is a reminder of all of Camilla’s deets:

Who is Camilla Thurlow?

Camilla Thurlow

Camilla, 31, is a former Miss Edinburgh winner from Dumfries, Scotland who rose to fame on the third series of Love Island in 2017.

Despite failed romances with Jonny Mitchell and Craig Lawson, Camilla finally found her Prince Charming in model Jamie Jewitt.

Camilla and Jamie made it all the way to the final, where they finished runners-up to eventual winners Kem Cetinay and Amber Davies. Their romance was clearly meant to be though as they’re the only couple from their series still together.

What is Camilla Thurlow’s age?

She was born on 9 July 1989, making her 31 years old.

What’s Camilla Thurlow’s job?

Before Love Island, Camilla worked in Explosive Ordance Disposal – a form of bomb disposal. HOW BADASS IS THAT?!

She’s also worked for charity The Halo Trust – made famous in 1997 when the late Princess Diana visited – as well as Abercrombie and Fitch.

In March 2020, Camilla announced she’s set to release her first book, Not the Type, which she describes as “debut female empowerment memoir”.

Do Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt have any children?

Camilla and Jamie revealed they were expecting their first child in March 2020.

In an adorable video posted to Instagram, which was dubbed to Vanilla Ice’s track ‘Ice Ice Baby’, the pair throw a paper plane to their family and friends before revealing their adorable baby scan at the end.

Camilla captioned the video with, “So @jamiejewitt_ and I have managed to make something pretty special 🤔 and we’re not talking about the video… 🥳💃🥰🤗 #17weeks #October2020.”

Their baby daughter Nell was born six months later on 27 October 2020. Camilla announced their new arrival with a series of photos on Instagram, which she captioned, “There may be a thousand new photos on my camera roll, but none of them could ever do justice to the way you have lit up our lives 🥰.”

Are Camilla Thurlow and Jamie Jewitt engaged?

Indeed they are – and they announced the news in the most adorable way.

Camilla revealed Jamie had popped the question in February 2021 as she shared an adorable family snap of them with their daughter Nell, who was wearing a a t-shirt with the writing, “Mummy, will you marry my daddy?”

Is Camilla Thurlow pregnant?

Not currently, but Camilla was forced to hit backs at trolls who claimed she was pregnant again just a few months after giving birth to Nell.

“I’ve been in two minds whether to mention this but I did notice some comments on a recent picture I posted of me and Nell suggesting I’m pregnant or pointing out they could see a bump,” she wrote on Instagram.

“This is just a friendly reminder that if a woman wants you to know she is pregnant, she will tell you. And wouldn’t that lovely, joyous news be so much better coming from her than you inadvertently causing embarrassment or offence, or worse, pain and sadness?”

What’s Camilla Thurlow’s history with Prince Harry?

The pair met in 2014 at the London hotspot Tonteria, a Mexican style nightclub, through a mutual friend. Camilla was reportedly seen looking royally cosy and kissing our favourite Prince (we’re well jel), and then rumours followed of a relationship between the pair. This caused quite a scandal, as Prince Harry had only recently broken up with his ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas at the time – awks.

Neither of them ever confirmed a relationship between them, but a source told Grazia that they had been texting a lot and Camilla had visited Harry’s Kensington Palace for drinks on a couple of occasions.

Camilla also worked at land mine charity The Halo Trust in 2013, which Harry’s late mother Princess Diana was once involved in.

When did Camilla appear on Love Island?

Queen Cam appeared on Love Island and started her journey coupled up with Sam Gowland, although it was clear from the start that they shared no spark romantically.

She then moved on to Jonny Mitchell before he moved on to Tyla Carr, leaving Camilla heartbroken.

Then came Craig Lawson, who fans thought was rather full-on. He was later dumped from the villa by Montana Brown, which meant Camilla was single.

Absolute fitlord and former Calvin Klein model Jamie Jewitt entered the villa as a bombshell on day 32 and swept Camilla off her feet. The rest, as they say, is history…

Has Camilla been on any other TV shows?

Yep, she starred in her own reality show What Camilla Did Next which aired on ITVBe in January 2019.

The one-off special showed her relationship with Jamie and also documented a solo mission to Cambodia to carry out charity work.

The trip is one of many Jamie and Camilla have taken together to complete charity work, and Jamie has since opened up about how doing more meaningful work has helped ease his depression during his ‘flash’ model lifestyle.

Later that year, Camilla took part in Channel 4’s Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.

Is Camilla Thurlow on Twitter and Instagram?

You can find her at @CamillaThurlow on both Twitter and Instagram.

Her Instagram contains mostly baby pics at the moment (cute ones, we promise) but it’s also where you’ll find any style or hair transformations, which obviously we are always here for.

In 2017 she debuted new shorter hair that she’s kept to this day, as well as a gorge new brunette colouring that she’s also kept up four years later!

Her Instagram page is also where she shares her battles with confidence and self image – inspirational stuff, tbh.
