Love Island’s Tanya and Shaq Have Taken A Major Step In Their Relationship

They’ve made some moves!


Love Island alums Tanya Manhenga and Shaq Muhammad have taken a major step in their relationship.

The pair met on the 2023 winter series of Love Island, where they placed fourth.

Tanya and Shaq have been living at opposite ends of the country, Tanya in Liverpool and Shaq in London, but distance is no longer an issue. After six months together, they’ve decided to up the relationship stakes and move in together.

The couple took to Instagram to share their news, posting a photo which they captioned: “WE HAVE A NEW HOME 🏡❤️. Guess there’s no escaping now 😅 Have to thank God always for this next step in our lives. Looking forward to this next chapter.”

While Casey O’Gorman said: “Aaaaaa little love birds kept that quiet. When’s the house warming pls?”

The couple shared their moving plans back in June when speaking with FUBAR Radio. They said: “I’m with Shaq a lot. Right now, he just left me yesterday and I’m seeing him again in three days. London from Liverpool is only two hours. It’s so weird because I thought it was going to be really hard at some point but it’s not.”

Tanya continued on adding: “I think it’s because I want to see him and he wants to see me. The things we go to we go together. It’s really not been hard. But I’ve been convincing him to move to Manchester because I love Manchester. It’s a mini London and if he moves there I might move in with him soon.”

Shaq jumped into the conversation saying: “Me and Tanya literally see each other every single week. We went on holiday last week to Malta, and then I came back and went straight to Liverpool for two days. My family haven’t seen me for about a week. I might be moving to Manchester soon.”

He added: “She’s been trying to convince me since we’ve come out so that might be on the cards. I’m a firm believer in you make time for the people you want to make time for. And obviously I love spending time with Tanya, so I spend more time up in Liverpool than in London these days… I’ll give you the date of when we’re picking up the keys. We’ve had a little look.”

Good luck on your new adventure together guys!
