Shannen reveals Gabby was all Marcel could take about in Casa Amor [ITV]
The Love Island boys were placed in another villa, Casa Amor, for a number of days, where they were joined by five new girls who they could choose to take back to the main villa.
And speaking exclusively to OK! Online, Shannen Reilly McGrath said that girlfriend Gabby Allen was all that “lovely” Marcel Somerville could talk about.
She said: “I want Marcel and Gabby to win, I think they’re like the mum and dad of the villa.

“They’re just so lovely and I think because Marcel is 31, he really wants to settle down and I think he deserves it, he deserves a steady relationship.
“He was talking about Gabby the whole time that he was in the other villa.
Smitten Marcel even went as far as to compare Gabby’s clothes with that of the new girls, including Shannen.

“I had these fluffy sliders on and he said: ‘Oh Gabby wears them!’
“He just couldn’t stop talking about her and he had so much respect for her. It’s really lovely to see.”
It comes as viewers watched Gabby being reduced to tears after feeling “uglier” than the rest of the girls in the villa.

Sharing her insecurities, Gabby then revealed she was considering cosmetic surgery after she leaves the villa.
Speaking with Marcel on the balcony, a tearful Gabby explained how she planned to have a boob job and wanted to change her hair.
She said: “As I said to you, when I get out I wanna get my boobs done. I wanna get long hair.
“I wanna do all of this s**t to myself because I feel like I’m not as good as everyone else because they’ve got something I don’t have.”
But Marcel soon had her smiling telling her: “You’re amazing, forget everyone else in this villa,” adding she had the better bum and abs.
