Dumped Love Island star Shannon drops dig as bosses keep Danny after N-word slur

July 19, 2021

Love Island star Shannon Singh was famously dumped from the villa 48 hours after her arrival, the earliest dumping of any original contestant.

Shannon appears grateful to not be in the villa, admitting that none of the guys in there are her type, despite previously thinking she might fancy Liam Reardon.

Speaking to Daily Star, she said: "I thought Liam was fit, but he's a bit boring. Teddy isn't my type and Danny isn't my type – not a chance. It was a blessing in disguise I think.

"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's exit was due to a recoupling, which saw Chloe Burrows choose Aaron Francis, the person who Shannon was coupled up with, which resulted in her exit, rather than the choice of producers.

She left the villa after 48 hours after Chloe's choice was made.

Shannon added: "I think it's very interesting that the first girl he took on a date was Kaz. Honestly I don't know what's going on with it this year.

"I think for me it's for the best that I am out because none of the guys are a bit of me. I was just hoping that somebody would come in and by the looks of it, none of them are my type."

In the weeks since Shannon's exit we have seen numerous bombshells enter the villa, including new boy Danny Bibby, who has come under fire on the outside.

Comments have resurfaced seeing Danny use the N-word as he referred to his friends, which he has since apologised for from inside of the villa, explaining that he didn't mean anything "malicious" by the comment.

In a statement released by ITV, Danny said: "I'd like to take the time to apologise to anyone that may have taken offence to my inappropriate remark. I never meant anything malicious by this comment at all.

"I am not a racist person and it's unacceptable language and ignorant. I meant no offence and feel like I have really learnt from my mistakes and will never use that word again."
