Shaughna Phillips rose to fame in the first ever winter series of Love Island back in January, and she's now back on our screens for a new series of Celebs Go Dating.

The 25-year-old democratic service advisor from London previously revealed she lost a significant amount of weight before Love Island, posting an unrecognisable throwback picture on Instagram.

She followed it up with another before and after set captioned: "Consistency, not perfection".

Shaughna posed in black and nude underwear over the course of three years to reveal exactly how she transformed her body and it's fair to say, fans were impressed with the changes she made.

Consistency, not perfection

A post shared by Shaughna Phillips 💎 (@shaughnaphillips) on

Shaughna was one of the original 12 Winter Love Island contestants. Speaking in her entrance interview about what makes her a perfect contestant, she said: "I’m chatty, funny and clever – people won’t expect it from me. When they hear me speak about certain things they’ll be shocked. I like to get on with everyone, too."

She added that her ideal man is: "Funny, a little bit smart, not smarter than me as I’d get really annoyed. I want someone I can watch the news with and have a conversation about it. I also want someone that gets along with their parents and who dresses nice and looks nice although looks aren’t everything."

What's happening with Shaughna Phillips and Pete Wicks?

Shaughna and Pete are starring together on Celebs Go Virtual dating, and they've reportedly been getting close during filming.

Speaking to The Sun about their potential romance, Shaughna said: "Anna and Paul have actually said to me that they think me and Pete are alike in the sense that we kind of go along with things to be nice.

"That could be a perfect chemistry! He’s probably not my type on paper, but he's lovely!

"It's strange to me because I definitely get starstruck. Even on the first Zoom call with him I was probably a little bit quiet because it's like, ‘Oh my God!'.

"He is a charmer, I’ll give him that! Him and all the others are celebrities, I am trying to get used to it! I don’t feel like a celebrity, it’s just so weird!"
