‘Even though we haven’t really spent any time together at all, the time that we did spend was just so fab. 

‘The most important thing is you made me feel really comfortable which was my number one thing coming in.’

Meanwhile, upon her exit, Shannon opened up about the brutal twist and confessed that she ‘forgot’ that there were going to be dumpings in the villa.

She said: ‘I knew they were going to throw something in there, they always do. I knew it was going to be like she [Chloe] was going to take one of the guys.

Slipped her mind: 'I just can’t believe I forgot there were dumpings. I think all of us forgot there were dumpings. None of us really spoke about it'

‘I just can’t believe I forgot there were dumpings. I think all of us forgot there were dumpings. None of us really spoke about it.

‘When I read it out Liberty was almost crying, she was like, “What?” I did get a little bit emotional and then I eased up.’

On how she felt about leaving, she added: ‘I am a bit gutted. Do you know what, out of all the girls, I think it is fair it’s me because I didn’t have any emotional attachments to the guys, but all the girls had tiny little things [going on].’

Gutted: 'I am a bit gutted. Do you know what, out of all the girls, I think it is fair it’s me because I didn’t have any emotional attachments to the guys, but all the girls had tiny little things [going on]'

The beauty then went on to predict what she thinks is next for the remaining couples.

She explained: ‘I think the ones that can stand the test of time are Jake and Liberty. I think Aaron and Sharon could have a little spark, I don’t really know yet. 

The rest of them, I think it’s going to change. I don’t think it’s going to be Faye and Brad as a couple until the end. I think people are going to come in and their heads are going to be turned.’
