The Scottish glamour model, 22, spoke candidly with The Sun on Friday, saying she had filmed a flirty twerking scene with Aaron Francis which saw her rip her skirt open and they also sucked on each other’s fingers.
Admitting she felt fans didn’t ‘get to know her’ in her short time on the show, Shannon reflected: ‘When I had to leave, I was mortified. All you’ve got to think about is, “Oh my God, what have they shown?”.
Not shown: Love Island’s Shannon Singh claimed show bosses CUT her sauciest scenes and felt fans didn’t ‘get to know her’ as star admitted on Friday she was ‘mortified’ after shock exit
‘Me and Aaron had to do twerking and I ripped my skirt all the way up the front. We had to suck each other’s fingers and look into each other’s eyes, but none of that got shown.’
Shannon claimed ‘great things happened’ while she was in the villa, and she’d hoped that viewers would have been able to see her ‘cheeky’ and ‘outgoing’ personality shine through, but to no avail.
She added: ‘I’m not going to lie and say I’m absolutely overjoyed with it. I spent two weeks in quarantine for 48 hours on a show.’
The Scottish stunner was dumped after Chloe Burrows chose Aaron during the shock recoupling yet viewers were insistent she was still on the show.
Edited out: Shannon said, ‘Me and Aaron [Francis] had to do twerking and I ripped my skirt all the way up the front. We had to suck each other’s fingers… but none of that got shown’
A shame: Shannon claimed ‘great things happened’ while she was in the villa, and she’d hoped viewers would have seen her ‘cheeky’ and ‘outgoing’ personality shine through, but to no avail
Viewers were devastated over Shannon’s exit and have been seen pleading with bosses to get Shannon to return for Casa Amor – where singletons head in to turn heads.
On Friday, Shannon took to Instagram in a confirmation of her departure.
She posed for a snap in a bikini and added a caption reading: ‘IM BACK EVERYONE! cannot believe the amount of support I’ve received I love every single one of you!!…
‘Thank you to my best friend for life @rubykellll for running my socials whilst I was gone- gutted but SO grateful for the opportunity. Everyone please #bekind’.

TV insiders have confirmed to MailOnline that Love Island bosses weren’t impressed by Shannon’s resistance to ‘play the game’, making it an easy decision for them to end her time on the series.
A source revealed: ‘During her short time in the villa, Shannon didn’t get to know anyone, or partake in the games properly, even refusing to kiss any Islanders.
‘She had always promised to be a fun and exciting contestant, but she wouldn’t engage in the way producers had hoped – and they have no plans for her to make a dramatic return.’
Upset: Admitting she felt fans didn’t ‘get to know her’ in her short time on the show, Shannon reflected: ‘When I had to leave, I was mortified… I spent two weeks in quarantine for 48 hours’
A source close to the show told MailOnline: ‘Viewers will have seen for themselves that the result of the Islander’s re-coupling that evening dictated who left.’
Despite being quoted saying she can have ‘sex up to eight times a day’, Shannon admitted to feeling ‘anxious’ about the speed in which romances move in the villa.
Following her departure, Shannon revealed she would be up for making a comeback. She said: ‘Yeah, why not? It was very short lived…
‘Surreal, but I’m obviously very grateful I got the opportunity. I’m not coming away fuming from it, I’m coming away grateful.
‘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].’
Shannon admitted that she was so caught up in the drama of Chloe stealing one of the guys, that she ‘forgot’ re-couplings would put islanders at risk of being dumped.
‘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. I just can’t believe I forgot there were dumpings,’ she confessed.
‘I think all of us forgot there were dumpings. None of us really spoke about it.
Reaction: Viewers were devastated over Shannon’s exit and have been seen pleading with bosses to get Shannon to return for Casa Amor – where singletons head in to turn heads
‘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.’
Speaking immediately after her exit on the show, Shannon had said: ‘It’s emotional because you meet people straight away and you bond. I was me in there, so it is what it is. No regrets.’
While fans have everything crossed that Shannon will get to return to the villa, she is now focusing on making more content for her OnlyFans account.
Love Island continues at 9pm on Sunday on ITV2 and ITVHub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
