Love Island's Shaughna reveals feelings for Luke M 'out of desperation'

Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips shocked the nation – and the villa – when she revealed she has feelings for Luke Mabbott in scenes that aired earlier this week.

The 25-year-old contestant confessed her attraction for Luke M in conversation with Mike Boateng, but not everyone’s convinced that her feelings are genuine, least of all’s body language expert Judi James.

Judi really isn’t buying Shaughna’s sudden interest in the Justin Bieber lookalike and she reckons it’s all part of a game plan to stay in the villa.

‘I really do smell a rat, I’m afraid,’ she began in our latest episode of Love or Lie Island. ‘I think that was very much out of desperation. You don’t suddenly go, “Oh, actually I fancy that one over there”. They’re in such close quarters you’d know by now and Mike didn’t have an inkling.’

Judi also pointed out that Shaughna masked her face with a pair of sunglasses as she told Mike how she feels about Luke M, and that says a bit.

‘She had her shades on so we couldn’t see her eyes, which is a classic cut off,’ she explained. ‘It means that she was probably thinking, “Can I get away with this one?”‘

With the Love Island finale now in sight, Shaughna’s sudden bombshell might be part of a game plan.

‘I think Shaughna has realised she’s in a popular position. She’s watched the show before, she knows this is the Amber position and that reflects to me her personality. If they’re absolutely tied together, she knows this is the Amber position.

That being said, Judi added that if Shaughna does genuinely have feelings for Luke M, the romance might not last long due to his passiveness.

‘If she is interested in him, she’s interested in the same way she made the mistake with Callum [Jones]. He’s [Luke M] probably compliant, he’ll probably do what he’s told. He’s a lot younger.

‘She’s got a man that she can control and she’s already realised that doesn’t work.’

Only time will tell just how real Shaughna’s feelings are for Luke M, but we’re secretly hoping these two are genuine.

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
