‘Prior to this Shaughna has been single since before her appearance on Love Island – so in total has been single for 2 years until now.

‘Love Island has given Shaughna many fantastic commercial opportunities which she is so very grateful for.’

Shaughna has jetted to Dubai – like most of the other Love Island stars of yesteryear – where she appears to be with the man in question.

She filmed the view from a boat on Sunday, with a man seen in the clip, potentially the mystery boyfriend in question. His face was turned away from the camera. 

The confusion began when Shaughna posted the snap cosying up to the shirtless hunk, whose face was covered up with an emoji.

She captioned the snap with: ‘Starting 2021 with the same people I started 2020 with, and feeling very lucky ❤️’

Many were left wondering who the faceless man was, taking to the comments to press her on the matter.

Some were baffled, wondering how she could still be with the same mystery man a year ago if she had taken part on Love Island – a series for singletons. She also took part in Celebs Go Dating over the subsequent summer.

When she was on Love Island, Shaughna was supposedly looking for romance, famously pairing up with co-star Callum Jones only to be dumped by him after returning from Casa Amor, leading to many a vitriolic remark from viewers. 

‘Did I just read her confirm that she was in a relationship whilst on love Island and cgd? No hate im just shocked!’ one person remarked on Saturday, under her Instagram post.

A different person asked: ‘Were you dating during Love Island? x’, with another saying: ‘You were on LI in 2020…..’  

One person questioned: ‘Boyfriend of 2 years? Weren’t you on celebs go dating recently?’  

While a different fan asked why Shaughna was covering her mystery man’s face, to which she replied: ‘Maybe the person doesn’t want the attention so doesn’t want their face on Instagram’ followed by confused emojis.

Another asked: ‘Surely if you’re in a relationship you wouldn’t be going on dating programmes?’

To which Shaughna replied: ‘If you had the ability to potentially change your mum’s/parents’ life, would you? For me, personally, being able to help my mum in anything she financially would need outweighed ANY other scenario.

‘That’s the relationship that means everything to me, and I would do anything to give her the life she deserves. We may not agree, but I hope you understand my decisions.’  

MailOnline has approached Shaughna’s representatives for comment.
