'Love Island' star Shannon Singh is "gutted" after being dumped from the villa - but she wants her fans to "be kind"
Shannon Singh has admitted she's "gutted" after leaving 'Love Island'.
The 22-year-old glamour model has confirmed she's back in London after being dumped from the ITV2 dating show this week after just three days on air.
She wrote on social media: "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 (sic)"
Her call for kindness comes after 'Love Island' bosses warned viewers to "think before posting" on social media after Chloe Burrows was hit with death threats.
Trolls hit out at the 25-year-old financial services marketing executive after she coupled up with Aaron Francis on Wednesday's episode (30.06.21), which resulted in Shannon being dumped from the villa – and the show condemned the "wholly unacceptable" posts.
A statement released on the 'Love Island' social media pages read: "We want Love Island to be a positive experience for all our cast and their friends and family members.
"Last night’s episode created strong reactions but some viewers’ posts were wholly unacceptable.
"We take these matters extremely seriously and will support cast members and their families in reporting such posts.
"We would once again urge all our viewers to think before posting, and remember that our Islanders are people with feelings."
This comes after Chloe's family and friends took to social media to condemn the "absolutely disgusting" trolling she has received, including "hundreds" of messages encouraging her to take her own life.
They also questioned if the deaths of former 'Love Island' host Caroline Flack, and contestants Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon, who all took their own lives, have "taught us nothing".
