    SHANNON'S CAREER INSPIRED BY HER STRIPPER DAD

    Love Island’s Shannon Singh has revealed her dad was a stripper – who inspired her topless modelling career.

    The beauty, who hails from Fife, made the X-rated confession during a racy interview earlier this year.

    Shannon said her Birmingham born dad worked as a stripper and took his kit off during her high school days.

    She explained: “My dad used to be a stripper. I think it is absolute jokes. I love it.

    “When me and my brother were younger he used to have a silver Honda Civic, he had ‘Sweet Cheeks’ and pink writing with kisses all over the car to advertise his stripping.

    “We were probably ten-years-old when we clocked on that something was different."

    The show usually runs from the beginning of June for eight weeks until August.

    HUNTING FOR LOVE

    Love Island has named their final islander – a stunning estate agent from Devon.

    Faye Winter, 26, will be swapping house viewings for the villa this summer on her quest for love.

    But she plans to return to work because she enjoys her job so much – in particular winding up clients’ wives thanks to her skimpy outfits.

    She said: “I’m a lettings manager and I’ve got an amazing team. I go out and do valuations, win business for the company and I’ll do the odd viewing and find tenants. My main role is the sales side of things.

    “I absolutely love it! I’ve actually only taken a sabbatical from work because in my ideal world, I’d love to go back to work.

    HOPING TO SCORE

    Footballer Toby Aromolaran has been named as the tenth Islander for the series.

    The 22-year-old from Essex is hoping to score off the pitch – but has never been in a relationship before.

    Discussing why he’s doing the show, he said: “I’ve never been in a relationship. I thought, ‘If Love Island can’t find me a relationship then no one can’.”

    Toby signed for semi pro club Hashtag United last year, but this summer is shaping up a little differently for him.

    Talking about team, he revealed: “I’ve played football since I was about six, but it’s really come into a new light for the past year since I joined a team called Hashtag United.

    “They’re very social media focused. Everything is on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. Playing with them has really made me fall in love with the game again.”

    HELLO, CHLO!

    Love Island 2021’s ninth contestant has been revealed as blonde bombshell Chloe Burrows – who is on the hunt for someone as “loud” as her.

    The 25-year-old from Bicester confessed: “I am quite a big character.”

    Asked what she’s looking for in a partner, the marketing assistant added: “I like a good build. I go to the gym. I want someone who is funny.

    “Really funny and caring and will do nice little things for you. And then obviously someone who you can depend on to not ditch you.

    “Because I am quite a big character and quite loud, they would have to be as loud, if not more. I could never be with someone who is quiet. Someone that gives you a bit back.”

    BRAD THE BUILDER

    Love Island’s eighth contestant has been named as Brad McClelland, who  is known for trying to make a quick buck with minimal effort. 

    The 26-year-old labourer from Northumberland admitted he’s in it for the holiday, saying: “Who wouldn’t want to be in a nice villa in a hot country for awhile?”

    Asked how his fellow labourers would describe him – he didn’t hold back and revealed: “I try and make as much money as I can by doing as little as possible. 

    “They’d probably say – not lazy, as I’m energetic – I just try to get away with doing literally nothing.”

    And the cheeky chap has a type – admitting his celeb crushes are brunette beauties Sommer Ray, Zara McDermott and Megan Fox.
