Love Island star Shaughna Phillips has hinted at a romance between her and Jack Fincham.

The 26 year old, who recently revealed she had surgery after a cruel comment from an ex boyfriend, appeared to catch the eye of dad of one Jack, 26, earlier this year.

As Jack took over Boohoo’s Instagram account while watching Love Island earlier this year, he commented on scenes where Shaughna and Callum Jones had a chat after he returned from Casa Amor with Molly Smith.

As Jack watched the scenes unfold, he told Boohoo’s followers in an Instagram video: “Don't worry Shaughna, I'll take you out on a date whilst the coast is clear.”

Months later, Shaughna is still on the look out for love after leaving the villa alone but has now hinted that there could be sparks between her and Jack.

When asked by The Sun Online about a potential romance with Jack, she said: “That would be telling”.

She then added: “We’re on the same agent company so I'm sure we’ll be bumping into each other…”

It comes after Shaughna exclusively opened up about her insecurities about her legs after being after being diagnosed with lipoedema – a chronic condition which causes abnormal fat build-up.


Speaking exclusively to OK! online, she revealed: “I think I’ve always had an insecurity about my legs, that was the one thing that I said to the Love Island therapist – before you go in there, they ask you loads of questions, how you deal with trolls.

“My one thing that I said to them is the only thing that I’m insecure about is my legs.”

However, Shaughna defiantly revealed that trolling over her insecurities does not affect her.

She explained: “Anything that a troll has to say to me I probably think about it already.

“So, to be honest, the trolling comments about my legs don’t necessarily affect me, it’s something that happened a long time before Love Island, I’ve always felt conscious about them, I’ve always had comments about them and I have never really known what was wrong with them because I’d lost weight – I lost just over four stone and my legs hadn’t changed.”

Shaughna was diagnosed with lipoedema after a fan messaged her asking if she was aware of the condition. She then researched the symptoms and Shaughna said she “ticked every box”.

The reality star said she felt relief after her diagnosis and her surgery.

She said: “It’s like a light at the end of the tunnel. Right now it seems I’ve been kicked by David Beckham I’m so bruised but just knowing that the bigger picture’s not far away I’m very excited.”
