By Aura McMenamin

A local girl will be heating things up on Love Island tonight.

Shannen Reilly McGrath from Tallaght will appear on the ITV reality show after it was announced online.

British show Love Island sees 12 singletons enjoying a luxurious few weeks at a Mallorca villa. The aim of the game is to win the public’s affection and couples who shack up must remain on the show through a voting system.

We’re confident Shannen will do well on the dating show. The model has a strong following (9,000 followers and counting) on Instagram and is the face of many an Irish girl's staple-product, Cocoa Brown tan.

The 25-year-old already looks certain to be a standout star on the show, despite only getting the call from ITV producers last Wednesday morning to pack her bags and head to Mallorca.

The model posted promotional photos on her Instagram yesterday announcing her arrival on the island, with #TeamShannen underneath.

We can’t wait to see how she gets on!
