Love Island star Shaughna Phillips opens up about her love life and eventually settling down
GEORGIA TREVITT

After her stint on Love Island earlier this year, Shaughna Phillips joined the Celebs Go Virtual Dating agency in a bid to find romance. But after a string of unsuccessful dates, the 26-year-old is still on the hunt for Mr Right, telling us her love life is pretty much non-existent at the moment as virtual dating “isn’t for her”.

Shaughna – who has joined dating app Happn – admits she’s looking for someone “respectful” that she can introduce to her mum. And when it comes to looks, she admits Kourtney Kardashian’s ex Scott Disick is her dream man.

“I think he’s really good-looking,” she says. “And he’s got such a funny personality – I find him hilarious.”

While she wants marriage and babies in her future, Shaughna says she’s in no rush to settle down and is instead focusing on her career.

“I’ve been to university and I’ve done jobs that I’ve loved and work is definitely something I’m passionate about,” she says. “And it’s something I feel like I can achieve more than I can having a baby right now.”

Here, Shaughna opens up about dating disasters, why she finds it hard to trust people and stripping off for The Real Full Monty On Ice later this year…

Hi Shaughna! How’s your love life going at the moment?

I don’t really have one! It’s such a weird year, so I’m having fun talking to people. But in terms of actually going on dates and meeting people, that’s not really happened.

Have you been doing any more virtual dating?
