Love Island star Savanna Darnell speaks out after ‘having her drink spiked’

Reality show contestant says she collapsed during "horrendous experience"

Reality show contestant Savanna Darnell has warned partygoers to be vigilant after revealing she collapsed due to having her drink spiked.

The 22-year-old Love Island cast member told her 100,000 Instagram followers she was left terrified following the Christmas night out incident – and is unable to recall anything that had happened.

Savanna, whose dad is 1980s US singer Kid Creole, reassured concerned fans she had recovered from the vile event but urged revellers to ensure they remain safe by always keeping an eye on their drinks.

“I’m fine, thanks for everyone who’s asking,” she said in the caption of an Instagram post containing two selfies showing her looking glum in front of a mirror.

The dancer from Sheffield continued: “I went out the other night and my drink was spiked.

“I cannot remember one single thing from the night, my body couldn’t function properly, I collapsed and it was a horrendous experience.”

“It’s a scary thing. So PLEASE make sure you always watch your drinks on nights out!

“Be careful and surround yourself with the right people.”

Savanna lasted four days on this year’s ITV2 series, having entered Casa Amor on day 26 before being dumped at the same time as Charlie W, Dean and Jordan.

She claimed to have snuggled up with Wes Nelson during her brief stay on the island in scenes she said were left on the cutting room floor by TV bosses.

“Me and Wes actually really got on,” she said during an interview with a YouTuber.

“We got on really well, we shared a bed. They never showed that. We had a cuddle.”

Savanna added: “We were having a great time, we were giggling and they just never wanted to show it.”
