Shaughna Phillips has revealed that a bunch of football players have been sliding into her DMs of late – but she’d be too starstruck to date anyone famous.
The Love Island star, 25, admitted to FUBAR Radio’s Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng that she doesn’t usually venture into her message requests on Instagram, but was in for a surprise when she let her friend have a look through them.
She explained: ‘I do not go in my message requests because that is a dark and dangerous place and I avoid it.
‘It’s like Lord of the Rings’ middle earth, like you don’t go in there. If I accidentally click on it, I’m like “aaaahh, get away!”
‘I was on a photoshoot the other day and when I was shooting, my make-up artist said, “let me go through your message requests”. I was like, “ah okay, just don’t tell me anything you see in there”.
‘There was apparently a few footballers in there. So much so that I may even have a five a side! So I may start venturing into the message requests!’
Despite the apparent gamut of footballers in her DMs, Shaughna might not be pairing up with a professional athlete just yet as she admits she gets too starstruck to date anyone famous.
She explained: ‘Everyone’s like “what celebrities do you like?” But I get so starstruck with anyone that I’ve watched on telly that I could never imagine dating a celebrity. Like, I don’t feel like a celebrity at all.’
While dating might be a bit difficult given the current pandemic, Shaughna has revealed she uses dating app Happn to get talking to people in her local area.
Any man trying to chat her up had better avoid talking about coronavirus, however, as she added: ‘I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but all anyone talks about is lockdown and corona and you’re sick of hearing it!
‘And when you start talking to someone new, you’re like, “how’ve you found lockdown?” You can’t help it. So it’s been strange.’
