The following morning, Tanya discussed the moment while chatting with the other girls on the balcony.

She said: ‘He was like, I want my own kiss now. We were close. I was like, no, I think you’ll have to wait.’ 

Shaq was undeterred and later told fellow islander Ron: ‘If I’m being honest, the more I see her, the more I’m feeling her. We’ve barely spoken today but when I look at her I’m like, I’m feeling you.’
