She is on the precipice of shooting to UK reality TV stardom ahead of her arrival in the Love Island villa next week.
Yet Shannon Singh appears to have been catching the eye across the pond as it’s been revealed that Desperate Housewives and Mortal Kobat star Mehcad Brooks has had a penchant for liking her snaps for over two years.
The Scottish beauty, 22, litters her Instagram with sexy snaps many of which the model and actor, 40, who starred as murderous Matthew Applewhite in Desperate Housewives, appeared to appreciate with a legion of likes.
Woah! Shannon Singh appears to have been catching the eye across the pond as it’s revealed that Desperate Housewives and Mortal Kobat star Mehcad Brooks has had a penchant for liking her snaps for over two years
Shannon already has 171k followers on Instagram, among them Mehcad, who has liked a number of her photos dating back to 2019.
On one snap, captioned: ‘Approved for date night?’ flirty Mehcad penned: ‘If this doesn’t work for date night, he don’t like women’.
Mehcad has featured in a number of roles since starting as a Calvin Klein model and then going on to appear on Desperate Housewives from 2005 to 2006.
His latest role is as Jax Briggs in the Mortal Kombat reboot, which was released last month, and also stars Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee and Tadanobu Asano.

Ahead of her stint on the show, Shannon has made some very saucy revelations.
An unearthed interview with Who’s Your Daddy podcast sees the Scotswoman – whose father is from Birmingham but of Indian descent and is an ex-stripper – admit how much she enjoys sex, claiming she has it eight times a day.
Further admissions see her boasting about how she ‘likes it rough and tough’ and about how confident she is.
‘I am very sexually active, I have sex like eight times a day. Not every day but I have a lot of sex. I am very sexually active,’ she said during the interview. ‘I had sex in the morning yesterday, then in a toilet, then in the afternoon.

‘I quite like a bit of rough and tough. I kind of like it rough and I love a bit of morning sex. I love it.’
In another brush with fame, Shannon revealed that she won a place on Britain’s Got Talent as a child but was too scared to appear on the show.
The former glamour model was unveiled on Monday as a contestant on the ITV reality show’s latest series, which makes its much-anticipated return next week.
And Shannon who’s more recently tried her hand at DJing and flaunting her figure on OnlyFans, has now told how she’s already had a brush with TV fame and previously chickened out of appearing BGT saying she ‘s**t it’.
Shannon said: ‘I will tell you something that’s actually jokes guys, so I went on Britain’s Got Talent when I was in primary six. So I must have been about, I can’t remember how old I was, I must have been like 11 or something.
‘I went on Britain’s Got Talent and I got through, and I sang Alesha Keys No One, bless me. And I s**t out, I didn’t go on it, I got too scared.’
Speaking about how much she enjoys singing, Shannon added: ‘I love singing. I think singing is great. When I get a bit drunk I think I get too confident, I sing like a drowned rat.’
Shannon is from Fife, Scotland, and before heading into the Majorcan villa and being watched by millions, told Love Island fans a little bit about herself.
She said: ‘I used to be a glamour model when I was 18 or 19. I loved those days, I’ve got nothing to be ashamed of, they were my glory days. Now I’m more on Instagram/ YouTube. I’ve done a bit of commercial modelling. I can DJ as well.’
Nervous? In another brush with fame, Shannon revealed that she won a place on Britain’s Got Talent as a child but was too scared to appear on the show
Explaining what she’s after in the villa, she added: ‘I don’t feed off looks, I feed off energy, I need someone with personality. Just someone I can have fun with. I’m a party girl, I love going out, I’m very social.
‘For me it’s quite hard to find people who are genuine and looking for what you’re looking for. I’m not just going to go with anyone because they’re convenient.
‘I need to make sure they’re for me. Looks – obviously, they’ve got to be handsome, but if he’s a handsome hunk but it’s like talking to a brick wall and I’d rather watch paint dry, it’s not going to be great.’
Ready to go! Brunette beauty Shannon was one of 11 new Islanders announced as appearing on this year’s series of Love Island on Monday (pictured wearing a wearing PrettyLittleThing X Tamara Francesconi bikini)
