She recently underwent liposuction after being diagnosed with lipoedema, an abnormal accumulation of fat in the legs.

The Love Island star, 26, looked incredible in a bright orange bikini as she posed on her balcony.

Shaughna looked confident in the strapless two-piece which featured a silver ring detail on the top and the high-waisted bikini bottoms. 

The reality star accessorised her beach look with a pair of black sandals and a crisp white shirt, while she wore tinted brown sunglasses atop her head.

Upping the glam for the day, Shaughna styled her caramel tresses in voluminous curls while she finished her look with a sleek palette of make-up. 

Captioning her snap, she penned: ‘Got a little lion in me & I ain’t ever taming it.’

Shaughna is currently in Dubai and is reportedly spending time with the mystery man she’s been dating, after being single for two years. 

Her rep has confirmed that she ‘is dating a man she met a few weeks ago after being single for two years’ following accusations from fans that she was in a secret romance while on Love Island 2020. 

It comes after Shaughna previously admitted she was ‘killing herself’ doing workouts six times a week while on the reality show and felt like the token ‘fat girl.’ 

She said: ‘I’d be going to the gym six times a week, and even though I got down to 9st 6lb and a size six on the top half, my legs would stay at a size 14.’

And the beauty told The Sun she would cry to the therapist over the size of the legs and would feel insecure alongside the other female Islanders after being bullied for years over her pins.  

The star said that water retention from the flight and the heat caused her legs to swell so much she couldn’t put her shoes on and she was worried about what she looked like. 

It was only when Shaughna left the show that she was diagnosed with lipoedema, a an abnormal accumulation of fat in the legs.

She said she would get constant bruising on my legs, and they would be so painful but I had no idea what it was.

‘When I came off the show I had all these messages asking if I had been diagnosed with lipoedema…

‘It’s scary to think that had I not found out about my condition, and intervened when I did, I would’ve just been getting progressively worse, and in pain as well.’ 

She even admitted  she blocked the word ‘legs’ from appearing on her social media before entering Love Island due to her fear of being trolled for the size of her calves. 

 Shaughna paid for private liposuction to shrink her legs in October as the procedure is not available on the NHS. 

She had two litres of fat drained from her calves and revealed the results when she appeared on The Real Full Monty On Ice.
