The new series of Love Island is about to hit our screens tonight with Fife model and influencer Shannon Singh joining the cast to compete in the reality show. 

Shannon is off to a good start as she's already been marked as the bookies top female to win the show.

The beautiful 22-year-old model is on the lookout for love and has said that she feeds off energy, not looks, with her odds cut into 11/4 from 4/1 shortly after  betting was made available.

The highly anticipated new series of Love Island starts on June 28 at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. 

Shannon, from Glenrothes, used to be a glamour model but now spends her days DJing and on social media.

She said: "It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you’re lucky enough to participate in the show, why would you not? And hopefully meet an exciting hunk.

"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.

"Now I’m more on Instagram/ YouTube. I’ve done a bit of commercial modelling. I can DJ as well.

"I don’t feed off looks, I feed off 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."
