Love Island fans shower Tanya with praise as she swerves kiss from 'desperate' Shaq



Love Island viewer have showered Tanya with endless praise after she swerved a kiss from Shaq.

The gorgeous islander insisted that she intends on waiting to lock lips with the handsome hunk again until they get to know one another a little better.

Model Tanya, 22, and airport security officer Shaq, 24, coupled up during Monday's episode after they liked what they saw in one another on first glances.

And although the pair are clearly fond of one another, Tanya is making her man wait for any more romance.

On Tuesday's instalment of the ITV2 dating show, Shaq told Tanya he wanted to kiss her, but the model insisted that he would have to wait before the pair go any further.

It wasn't long before viewers flocked to Twitter to praise Tanya for 'keeping her head on her shoulders'.

A third quipped: "Tanya is a great role model. As for Shaq, he needs to CHILL."
