Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips would ‘strip on TV every day’ to combat cancer

Love Island fans will be seeing a lot more of series six favourite Shaughna Phillips in the next few weeks.

The 25-year-old reality star has signed up to take part in the latest instalment of The Real Full Monty, but this time there is a twist as the performance will be on ice.

The special series see stars strip off and take to the rink to perform a routine raising awareness about cancers that affect intimate areas of the body.

Speaking about signing up for Full Monty On Ice, Shaughna told Daily Star Online: "Every day I finish filming I come home with a smile on my face and I'm enjoying every second of it.

"I feel very lucky with the opportunities I've had considering the year we've had.

"I'm looking forward for people to see me in a show that is not about dating.

"Although I was being my true self on Love Island and Celebs Go Dating, this is something completely different."

Shaughna will be stripping off with the likes of fellow Love Island alumni Chris Hughes, 27, former glamour model Linda Lusardi, 62, Jake Quickenden, 32, This Morning's Dr Zoe Williams, 40, and former rugby player Gareth Thomas, 46.

Former Woman's Hour presenter Dame Jenni Murray, 70, will also be taking part as well as soap star Jamie Lomas, 45, Diversity dancer Perri Kiely, 24, and actress Hayley Tamaddon, 43.

Presented by Dancing On Ice judge Ashley Banjo, Loose Women star Coleen Nolan will co-host, having taken part in the female version in the past.

Discussing baring all in front of the cameras, the former Islander said: "If I could not strip off on national television I'd prefer that but this is all about Cancer Research and raising awareness.

"I've met some people during the show, and I have people in my personal life, who have fought battles and have gone through the most traumatic experience you can every imagine.

"It does really make me realise that what I'm doing is nothing compared to what they have to go through.

"So if we can raise awareness and money for Cancer Research then I'd strip everyday."

Shaughna may not have found her soul mate in the Love Island villa but she hasn't given up on finding Mr Right.

The former democratic services officer has signed up to dating app Happn during the coronavirus pandemic and has encouraged other singletons to do the same.

She explained: "I've actually never been on a dating app but lockdown forced me into the virtual dating world.

"I've joined the dating app Happn and it's nice getting to know different people.

"I've not been on any physical dates yet and some people think I'm an imposter and it's not actually me.

"I feel as if I do spend a lot of time convincing people I am who I am."

The Real Full Monty On Ice is expected to air this December on ITV
