And social media clout is what gives the cast earning power when they leave.

The 22-year-old’s following has almost doubled since she was revealed in the line-up – going from 153,000 to 296,000.

That makes Shannon the most popular islander on Instagram this season, with Kaz Kamwi and Brad McClelland following behind in second and third place.



After it was announced she had lost her place on the show in a shock dumping, her Instagram following continued to rise and fans flooded her page with supportive messages.

One wrote: "I can’t believe she has been dumped already. Gutted."

And another said: "Love Island is stupid for dumping her that quickly, I don’t get it."
