“Ever since then, we’ve been going from strength to strength, and I like that because anyone who opts in for everyone to know their every move, like myself, is weird.”

Meanwhile, Shaughna recently worried fans after she fainted during the National Television Awards last week and was carried out by her manager.
She later explained to followers that she had a ‘dodgy turn’ but wasn’t drunk, saying: “I just want to put it out there that I wasn’t drunk. I nearly fainted. I don’t know what happened to me.
“I just had this absolute dodgy turn, and yeah, I had to take my shoes off and be helped out by my manager.”
She added: “Just in case anyone did see and thought she’s seen better days, correct. I wasn’t drunk, thanks.”
