Love Island stars reveal they were asked to have awkward conversations and redo scenes

Former Love Island stars Shaughna Phillips and Jack Fincham claimed producers set up conversations and she says she was encouraged to say certain things on the ITV2 show.

During a video Q&A, Jack, who won series four with then girlfriend Dani Dyer, and Shaughna who appeared on series six, answered the question, did you ever have to refilm a scene?

Shaughna responded saying: "So they sometimes ask you, "Why don't you go and have this conversation?" And you think, 'Alright, I'm going to go and ask it, but I'll do it on my own little spin.'

"It was me and Sophie [Piper] having a chat and they wanted me to put it on her a little bit about asking Nas [Majeed] to choose her. I was like, "I think it, but I don't want to say it!"

She then goes on to say she repeated the scene four times, before giving in and making Sophie cry.

Talking about another occasion, Shaughna, 28, who was partnered with Callum Jones in the villa before he chose to recouple with Molly Smith, added: "The day that Casa Amor was going to come back, they asked me to go and tell Paige [Turley] that I want Callum to ask me to be his girlfriend when he come back.

"So me and Paige went outside, sat in the rain for three hours. We were just like, "What do you think is happening in EastEnders? What do you think's going on?"

"They're like, "Shaughna, just say it." – You will not get me to say it."

Jack chipped in saying: "There are certain things you think to yourself, 'Do you know what, nah…"

While she added to his answer: "It's not worth the £200 you're getting paid for!"

Callum famously returned to the main villa with Molly. Addressing the question of redoing scenes, Jack also recalled a conversation between himself and fellow Islander Sam Bird.

"It was like, "Why don't you ask him about this?" Because they asked us so many times we kept doing it in different accents… Jamaican and Northern…"

This follows other ex-contestants' claims of reshooting scenes, including series four star Ellie Jones, who said ITV2 producers tell you when to talk.
