From Fife in Scotland, model-turned-DJ Shannon Singh is heading to the Love Island villa in the hope of finding love.
Shannon was scouted aged 18, and from then worked as a glamour model under the pseudonyms Alexa and Ruby, even featuring as a Page 3 model in Daily Star.
Shannon has previously shared that it was her mother that encouraged her to do Page 3, and her dad used to work as a stripper.
She told Daily Star: "My dad used to be a stripper and my mum was actually the reason I got into glamour.
"She was like ‘you need to take this opportunity – do it'."
Who is Shannon Singh?
Now aged 22, Shannon wants to focus on Instagram, where she currently has over 174k followers, making YouTube videos, taking on commercial modelling jobs, and also working as a DJ.
However, Shannon, who is a regular on Daily Star's Hot Topics, has said she isn't ashamed of her glamour modelling past.
She said: “I used to be a glamour model when I was 18/19. I loved those days, I’ve got nothing to be ashamed of, they were my glory days.”
Entering the villa, Shannon is looking for love but will not go by looks, as personality is much more important to the Scottish lass.
Speaking about what : "I don’t feed off looks, I feed off the energy, I need someone with personality.
“Just someone I can have fun with. I’m a party girl, I love going out, I’m very social. For me, it’s quite hard to find people who are genuine and looking for what you’re looking for.
"I’m not just going to go with anyone because they’re convenient. I need to make sure they’re for me.

"Looks – obviously, they’ve got to be handsome, but if he’s a handsome hunk but it’s like talking to a brick wall and I’d rather watch paint dry, it’s not going to be great."
You can find Shannon with her 174k followers on Instagram @shannonsinghhh where she showcases her glamour model shots and stunning selfies.
Also a fashion and beauty blogger, you can find Shannon’s videos on Youtube which include fashion hauls and a day in the life of the Scottish model.
Explaining her excitement to enter the villa, she said: “If you’re lucky enough to participate in the show, why would you not? And hopefully, meet an exciting hunk.”
Shannon will be entering the villa alongside confirmed islanders such as Liberty Poole, Aaron Francis, Hugo Hammond and Sharon Gaffka – all in the search for love.
