Shaughna, who recently revealed she cried to Love Island therapists about her insecurities, wrote: “Starting 2021 with the same people I started 2020 with, and feeling very lucky” followed by a red heart emoji.

The stunning blonde’s snap received more than 105,000 likes while some couldn’t help but quiz her about the upload.

One asked: “who’s that man then” followed by a winking emoji. While another said: “omg shaughna do you have a ting”. And a third said: “she has a man look”.

While others shared their theories about the identity of Shaughna’s potential love interest, with some asking if the man is Love Island Chris Hughes after the pair formed a friendship on The Real Full Monty on Ice.

One said: “If it's Chris Hughes i totally ship for them.” [sic]

As another said: “Not Chris Hughes, she said starting 2021 with someone she started 2020 with, potentially meaning another love islander from the January 2020 series.”

But, others accused the star of having a boyfriend while she entered Love Island last year and as she took part in Celebs Go Dating.

One asked: “Boyfriend of 2 years? Weren't you on celebs go dating recently?”

While another said: “Were you dating during Love Island? x”, and a third added: “You were on LI in 2020…..”

Meanwhile, it was reported Shaughna said she entered Love Island to “help her mum financially” in a now-deleted comment.

In the exchange obtained by The Sun, someone asked: “Confused how she can have a boyfriend of two years what with Celebs Go Dating and Love Island.”

To which Shaughna is said to have replied with: “It's television!”

Another then reportedly 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.”

OK! online has contacted Shaughna’s reps for comment.
