Shannon told the Daily Star: “I did a live stream on social media and got trolled – being called racist remarks and loads of stuff.
“Social media has given people a voice and it’s not necessarily a nice one.
“Sometimes I’ll roll out of bed and be in a good mood and I won’t let it affect me.

“But obviously I have days when I get out of bed and read something and I want to react.”
Shannon added: “I’ve already got a thick skin in terms of what people say.
"That doesn’t mean to say it’s not going to get to me sometimes.”
It comes after ITV released a statement across social media, pleading with viewers to enjoy the show but to keep negative opinions to themselves.
The post read: “These Islanders are all single and ready to find love.
"We can’t wait to watch them get to know each other, date, and maybe even find the one.
“We’re so grateful they’re letting us follow their journey this summer. We hope you enjoy the show, but please think before you post.”
The Sun recently revealed how Shannon had stripped for cash on OnlyFans, but insists she’s timid when it comes to men.
She explained: “I think it’s a really good income stream but there’s still a stereotype about girls on Only Fans.
“I’m not as ‘chuck yourself at guys’ as people probably think – I’m not going to be one of these girls who are dying to kiss guys.”
