Sean Paul reveals favourite Love Island contestant ahead of entry into the villa

The singer is set to host a party on the show.

Sean Paul has revealed that Shaughna Phillips is his favourite Love Island contestant ahead of his entry into the villa.

The singer is set to host a party for the islanders in Cape Town and perform some of his hits, including new single Calling On Me.

Prior to his entry into the villa, he revealed that Shaughna is his favourite contestant on the show because “her name is closest to mine”.

He added: “I love that she’s real and loyal, even when Callum dissed her, she never flip up.”

The Jamaican artist said that his music can always “get people dancing”, adding: “So let’s see how the Islanders move to my new tune.”

The singer said that he hopes his arrival into the villa will help the contestants enjoy themselves.

“My songs always inspire closeness but for real I’m just hoping the islanders get loose and have a great time.

“There’s already been so much drama I just wanna create a relaxed vibe and take their minds off it.”

The Temperature singer also shared some tips on finding love ahead of his entry into the villa for the Spotify party.

“You don’t search for love, it smacks you in the face, it trips you off your feet,” he said.

“It takes you by surprise. Don’t trust technology, trust the butterflies.

“Love is a feeling, it’s not something that should be caged in a word.”

– Love Island continues on ITV2 and in Ireland on Virgin Media Television.
