How Love Island's Shaughna Phillips Became The Villa's Queen Of The One-Liners

Every year on Love Island, there is one contestant who has a particular way with words. 

Last year, it was Maura Higgins. The year before, it was Dani Dyer. Prior to them, we had Olivia Attwood and Kady McDermott.

And we’re pleased to announce the villa’s latest Queen Of The One-Liners is Shaughna Phillips

In case you’ve missed her ascent to the throne, allow us to explain why we’re all bowing down to the sharp-witted democratic services officer...

Love Island's Shaughna Phillips Lauded By Viewers For Keeping Her Cool In Brutal Recoupling

22. Bethany causes mayhem within minutes of arriving – series 1

Bethany made a memorable entrance when she was cast as a latecomer to the series, immediately locking horns with Jess, who she accused of using Omar just to stay on the show. Talk about going in with all guns blazing.

29. Calum Best pays a visit – series 1

Back when Love Island was Celebrity Love Island, Calum Best was one of the stand-out stars of the series, baffling and delighting viewers in equal measure. So who better to call on when the show was rebooted for ITV2 in 2015 than the man himself? He popped up halfway through the first series to take the male Islanders on a boys night out, with obvious “lads lads lads” action ensuing.

32. Everything Olivia Attwood did and said – series 3

Like her or loathe her (to be clear, we’re very much fans), there’s no denying Olivia was an absolute diamond of an Islander.

Everything that fell out of her mouth was instantly quotable (“dicksand”, anyone?)... and then came that iconic pool dive.

Never before has a man made such an impression with the word “message”. Ovie, we take our hats off to you.
