Chloe was tasked with picking one of the boys and chose Aaaron Francis, meaning Shannon was sent home.
Chloe had no idea she would be sending Shannon home by coupling up with Aaron, and gasped as the news was confirmed.
It’s the most brutal start to a series ever – especially as single islanders are usually given a chance to steal back a partner before leaving the villa.
Fans were speculating ahead of the episode about who could be leaving – and a few correctly predicted it would be Shannon.
Kaz Kamwi, Faye Winter, Liberty Poole and Sharon Gaffka successfully avoided the chop.
Follow the latest news and gossip about the 2021 contestants on Metro.co.uk’s Love Island live blog.
It means Liberty is currently coupled with Jake Cornish, Kaz with Toby Aromolaran, Sharon with Hugo Hammond, Faye with Brad McClelland and Chloe with Aaron.
All could not be lost though – fans are speculating (and hoping) that Shannon could still return with a spot in Casa Amor later in the series.
‘Bet they will bring Shannon back for Casa Amor,’ one said.
‘Prayer circle that Shannon is brought back as a twist in Casa Amor. I refuse to believe that she’s gone for good,’ another added.
The next 24-hours could be key to finding out the truth, too. As one social media user pointed out, if she is leaving the show for good she’s likely to be active on Instagram very soon. If not, she could return.
Shannon, who is a 22-year-old model from Fife, becomes the islander who has spent the shortest time ever in the villa.
Speaking about her decision to join the show before the series began, she said ‘It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. If you’re lucky enough to participate in the show, why would you not?
She also said she’s ‘hopefully [going to] meet an exciting hunk,’ adding: ‘I don’t feed off looks, I feed off energy, I need someone with personality. Just someone I can have fun with.
‘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.’
Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2.
