Contestant Shaughna Phillips has candidly opened up about her Love Island experience, saying the villa food is 'hit and miss'.

The Winter Love Island contestant headed into the villa in January 2020 alongside the likes of Paige Turley and Callum Jones, when the show was set in South Africa.

In a new YouTube video, as well as opening up about the intense 'body prep' she went through before heading onto the show, the 25-year-old also touched on what the food in the villa was like.

"We make our own breakfast, there’s not that much to choose from," she told her subscribers. "When I first went in there, I tried to watch what I was eating. Three or four days in, I just didn’t care. Not just that, but the time we were eating. We would have a Pot Noodle at 2 or 3am in the morning. The producers didn’t say to us, ‘No guys, it’s not time yet’. We used to eat because it was the only thing we had control over."

Speaking of the availability of food, Shaughna continued that "there were never that many good snacks" before saying lunch and dinner were "hit and miss. It was like school dinners. You used to get little lunches and desserts. One of the desserts one lunch time was mint ice cream. This mint ice cream was like frozen toothpaste."

While previous contestants have revealed their takeaway habit in the villa, Shaughna says she only had "two or three. We had McDonald’s once, we had pizza."

In response, ITV told Cosmopolitan UK, "The majority of the Islanders’ meals are catered for and we always ensure that these are nutritionally balanced."
