We’re officially at the point where we’re completely and utterly obsessed with everything Love Island. This week, we’ve seen the drama turn up a notch after a few dramatic recoupling’s and Hugo’s ‘fake’ row with Faye Winter and Sharon Gaffka.

There’s a few huge personalities in the villa, with fans pointing out from the very first episode that Faye Winter – who has delivered some amazing one liners already – bares a resemblance to former Love Islanders Olivia Attwood and Shaughna Phillips.

“Faye is giving me Shaughna vibes #LoveIsland ”, tweeted one viewer, while another wrote, ““This Faye is trying so hard to be the next @oliviajade_att #LoveIsland.”

So when we were lucky enough to bag Shaughna Phillips and recently dumped Islander Shannon Singh on heat Under The Duvet with Voxi, we were dying to find out what Shaughna thought about the comparisons.

Lucie Donlan, Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague (series five)

When boxer Tommy Fury entered the villa with Curtis Pritchard, Lucie Donlan seemed to fancy him a bit. Then, when the blonde bombshell that is Molly-Mae Hague entered and took Tommy on a date, Lucie realised that she fancied him a lot. Unfortunately Molly-Mae was Tommy's preferred blonde and they're still together to this day. Seems like he made the right choice.

Host Chris Taylor didn’t waste any time bringing it up, cheekily asking Shaughna if there is anybody in the villa that she wants to say her ICONIC phrase ‘congrats, hun’ to?

Shaughna replied, “Faye. She’s trying to be me.

“I’m joking! I didn’t mean it.”

Chris then responded, “There’s always a character like that in there, though.”

We can only hope that Faye is as iconique as both Olivia and Shaughna, right?

Faye's recent drama included a dramatic row with Hugo Hammond after he admitted his biggest turn-off was “fake” looks and personalities.

Sharon and Faye, who both revealed they have had lip fillers, Botox and a boob job, took issue with Hugo’s comments, although he insisted, he “didn’t mean anything malicious”.

Faye later revealed in a chat with Sharon and Hugo that she received a breast implant for her 18th birthday from her parents because she was 'so upset' at being underdeveloped for her age.
