Molly-Mae and Faye Winter need to stop flashing jewellery and homes online or risk getting robbed, says Love Island starNovember 17, 2021
LOVE Island star Shannon Singh has warned that reality star and influencers need to stop flashing their wealthy lifestyles online – or they will be robbed.
The 23-year-old, who appeared briefly on the show over the summer, revealed she fears for Faye Winter after she shared so much of her new home with fans, saying: “It leaves you right open."
Last month Molly-Mae Hague was left devastated when robbers broke into the home she shared with Tommy Fury and stole around £800k worth of designer goods.
The news sent shockwaves through the world of reality TV stars, and Molly vowed to not share so much online – but the new wave of Islanders have all been offering house tours to their legion of fans.
Speaking about the break in, Shannon told The Sun: “There’s no body that deserves that. When I see Faye and Teddy showing their new house, I was going to message her and say ‘be careful’ but I noticed she didn’t show the outside.
“I hope she is careful and I hope people like that are careful. You are leaving yourself wide open for it.
“You are giving criminals a leash to run with.”
Even before the break-in, Shannon has been very wary about posting a luxury lifestyle online because she believes its “unhealthy” for young fans.
She explained: “The reason I did my I Love Mine campaign is because I felt a lot of these influencers were flashing an unattainable lifestyle.
“You’ve earned amazing money and accomplished great things but you have a really young audience and I don’t think flashing a new Cartier £15k bracelet every two weeks is healthy for an audience.
“I am doing really well but the stuff that I buy I don’t feel the need to flash to my followers. All these youngs kids are going to think it’s normal at 20,21,22 to earn millions of pounds and have a new designer bag in every Instagram photo.
“I am just a bit cautious of Instagram because I feel like it can be a really toxic place for people.”
She added: “I am not shaming anyone, you should be able to enjoy it but it is also corona times and there are lots of people in hardship.”

Since appearing on Love Island Shannon has managed to carve her own path after Love Island, thanks to her I Love Mine campaign and work to break the stigma around OnlyFans.
She is also really successful on Twitch, which she says “sets her apart” from the other Islanders.
“It’s my own niche,” she explained. “I think people come off the show and they do brand deals and it’s all with fast fashion brands and every year is repeat of what the last people done.”
Shannon has however signed a big deal with lingerie brand Boux Avenue, but she believes it’s the perfect match for her.
She said: “The reason I chose to work with them is because they are on the messaging that I’m putting out to everyone.
“It’s not like I have just taken a fast fashion brand that has got nothing to do with what I stand for. I think it’s really important that I have a voice.”
