Love Island’s Shannon Singh has revealed she’s being bombarded with offers from companies offering her facial fillers since leaving the villa.
The Scottish model, 22, was the first contestant to be kicked off the ITV2 dating show, after newcomer Chloe chose to partner up with Aaron.
And she took to Instagram to vent her frustration at being targeted by cosmetic treatment firms on social media.
“I can’t help but find it a tiny bit cheeky when I’ve got loads of like, filler places and all this rubbish in my DMs, like ‘do you want filler? Do you want facial augmentation?
“No!” she exclaimed.
Shannon was cruelly dumped by text from the villa, after Chloe chose Aaron – who she was already coupled up with – and the Scot was told to pack her bags and leave immediately.
Viewers have speculated that she could be making a surprise return, but she shot down rumours by regularly updating her social media accounts.
In a recent interview with Mirror’s Features Editor Jessica Boulton, Shannon said that she wanted to use her platform now she’s out of the villa to raise awareness of the “dangerous” effect social media is having on teenagers.
“I want to talk about social media and Instagram, everyone thinks social media is real life, it’s not. I just really think it’s… although I really love social media, I can’t help but think it’s getting more dangerous to younger people,” she explained.
“If you’re a teenager you should be out climbing trees, playing manhunt, egging people’s windows – I used to do that,” she laughed.
“[Just] Be out having fun, don’t sit on an iPad, don’t sit on Instagram, don’t think that getting a million followers is important,” Shannon urged.
She confessed she’s “quite thick-skinned”, and wants to use her fame to focus on issues that matter.
“I want to use this platform to speak about things that are really important and that’s what I’m hoping to do. Even if it’s short-lived and it’s only five minutes, I’d rather use it for the right reasons,” she shared.
Shannon recently took aim at fellow Islander Danny Bibby, after an Instagram post from 2019 was unearthed in which he replied to a friend using the n-word.
He apologised, and despite viewers voicing their outrage at the incident, ITV bosses opted to keep Danny in the villa, and Shannon confessed she was dismayed by their controversial decision.
“The interesting thing is that there is a tweet that went viral that said, ‘The producers really kicked Shannon out in less than 24 hours for entertainment but can’t kick out the man who used a racist slur, ok’ and I think they have a point,” Shannon told the Daily Star.
“Honestly I don’t know what’s going on with it this year.”
