Where Love Island’s ‘first axed’ stars are now after Shannon’s sudden dumping
1st July 2021

Fans were shocked after sexy Shannon Singh became the first person to be dumped from Love Island after just 48 hours.

The model – aka Daily Star Page 3 girl Ruby – admitted she was "gutted" to get the boot after newcomer Chloe Burrows coupled up with her partner Aaron Francis, leaving her single.

Signalling her dumping, she received a text from producers, which read: "Shannon you are now single and therefore have been dumped from the Island.

"Please pack your bags and say goodbye."

She joins the ranks of Islanders who only had a short-lived spell in the sun. Here we take a look at the contestants who made early exits.

Series six, 2020: Eve Gale and Ollie Williams

Ollie walked off the show after a mere four days, claiming he had realised he was still in love with his ex.

While he was on the show, photos emerged of the toff – heir to a £15million fortune – posing with dead animals in Africa, sparking a trophy hunting storm.

He denied shooting any animals. These days Ollie, 24, is director of the Cornish Sporting Agency, a business that organises bespoke hunting and shooting trips.

Eve turned heads when she strutted into the villa alongside twin sister Jess but only lasted six days.

She coupled up with scaffolder Callum Jones but he ditched her for Shaughna Phillips. It was the first time the twins had ever spent time apart.

Jess then made it all the way to the final, finishing in fourth place with Ched Uzor but the pair split five months later.

Both Jess and Eve, 21, now work as influencers.

Series five, 2019: Callum MacLeod and Sherif Lanre

Welsh lad Callum quit his well-paid job as an aircraft engineer to go on Love Island but only lasted five days after an awkward coupling up with eventual winner Amber Gill.

The 30-year-old has since done some modelling work but is relaxed about having lost his job, saying: "I've got my trade, I've got my experience."

Meanwhile, Sherif was controversially removed on day nine for accidentally kicking fellow Islander Molly-Mae Hague in the crotch during a play fight, before joking it was a "c*** punt".

He later claimed he was given less air time than his white co-stars and ITV had "unconscious racial bias" – which the channel denied. Sherif, 22, now works as an influencer.

Series four, 2018: Kendall Rae Knight and Niall Aslam

It was another huge shock when gorgeous Blackpool lass Kendall was dumped on day six by lothario Adam Collard.

But she has gone on to make a successful career as an influencer, proving you don't need to go far in the show to do well afterwards.

She's also dating footballer Andrew Hughes.

Niall revealed he was autistic after leaving the villa on day nine.

He later told how he quit because of psychosis and hallucinations and was treated in a psychiatric hospital.

The 26-year-old recently said he feels as if ITV "washed its hands'" of him, that he spent more than a year depressed and then struggled to work since he appeared on the show.

Series three, 2017: Harley Judge and Tyne-Lexy Clarson

A casualty of day six, Harley was a Norwich-based groundskeeper who was coupled up with Amber Davies before her head was turned by Kem Cetinay – they went on to win.

Now 26, Harley is a fitness model and personal trainer and found love with fellow PT Lauren Brown.

Brummie Tyne-Lexy, 24, came in as a bombshell on day seven – but only lasted seven days after failing to couple up.

She's now an actress and has presented on BBC Radio Stoke and Sky Sports. She was also linked with fellow Islander Jack Fincham after they worked together on a film.

Series two, 2016: Javi Shephard and Malia Arkian

Surveyor Javi was repeatedly pied off by the girls and pleaded with Miss Great Britain Zara Holland to couple up with him but was sent packing on day six when she chose someone else.

He later said he was "too cultured" for the females in the villa. Javi, 32, returned to his previous life and got engaged to his girlfriend last year.

Malia was ejected just hours after entering the villa on day seven after a brawl with fellow contestant Kady McDermott.

Kady later alleged she'd received a nosebleed during the row. But Malia, 32, hit back, calling her a "compulsive liar."

In 2019 she announced she was pregnant and engaged to footballer Hope Akpan.

Series one, 2015: John and Tony Alberti and Rachel Christie

Twins John and Tony entered on day three but failed to couple up with anyone and were sent home just three days later.

Now 35, they are chefs, with a YouTube channel showing people how to cook traditional Italian dishes.

They've also released a 2019 cookbook Twintastico.

Former athlete and model Rachel, 32, was briefly Miss England in 2009 but that didn't help her when she was dumped on day 11.

The niece of sprinter Linford, she has since gone on to launch her own vegan make-up and apparel line, Christie Collection.

Love Island continues on Friday at 9pm on ITV.
