Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips faces giving birth alone after boyfriend busted in dramatic drug raid | The Sun

LOVE Island star Shaughna Phillips faces giving birth alone after her boyfriend was charged with drug offences, The Sun can reveal.

Billy Webb, 29, was busted by cops earlier this month in a dramaticraid.

Police allegedly recovered cocaine and MDMA before a follow-up search at a nearby address revealed a larger haul of illicit substances.

Shaughna, 28, could be now be left without Webb when she gives birth after he was remanded in custody.

A rep for the reality star told The Sun: "Shaughna had absolutely no knowledge of any activity involving the allegations against Billy.

"Despite being in a long term relationship with the defendant, Shaughna has no links with the address in question, and will be openly assisting the police with their enquiries.

"We kindly ask the public to be mindful of the imminent birth of Shaughna’s baby and allow her some privacy during this difficult and stressful time."

Webb has been charged with one count of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and one count of being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs.

If found guilty, the real estate agent could face up to 16 years in jail.

Webb was pictured for the first time alongside Shaughna after jetting back to the UK from California earlier this month – where the pair had enjoyed a romantic holiday.

Snaps from the week-long trip include the reality star posing in front of the iconic Hollywood sign.

But just one day after the pair were snapped hand-in-hand at Heathrow, Billy was arrested after cops recovered multiple bags of white powder.

A photo shared on Twitter by the Met Police showed several bags and boxes filled with illicit substances – including a shoebox with unknown pills inside.

Police later confirmed officers had recovered Cocaine and MDMA amongst a batch of Class A drugs.

Webb was arrested and charged alongside a 78-year-old man, William Bowen.

The revelation leaves ITV star Shaughna facing the final weeks of her first pregnancy without her baby’s father at her side.

A source close to Webb said: “The idea she may have to give birth without him because of his arrest is heartbreaking.

“He knew she was having a baby and it’s stupid of him to get arrested like this so close to the due date.

“He’s been paranoid for a while about the prospect of police getting involved.

“If he misses the birth of his child he’ll only have himself to blame.”

The couple announced Shaughna’s pregnancy last October in an emotional Instagram post, vowing to make the arrival of their child “our greatest chapter yet”.

She previously claimed she would name the child Billy if she has a boy, in honour of boyfriend Webb.

Earlier this month a terrifying hospital dash left the popular islander scared for her unborn child’s health – after she feared the baby “wasn’t moving”.

Doctors eventually diagnosed her with a dangerous urine infection that could have caused her waters to break early if left untreated.

The blonde, who starred in the first-ever winter edition of the Love Island in 2020, lasted 33 days in the South African villa.

But she was left heartbroken when day one partner Callum Jones left her for Casa Amor bombshell Molly Smith in one of the series’ most explosive moments.

After her spell in the villa she featured in 2020’s Celebs Go Virtual Dating and The Real Full Monty On Ice – but eventually found love outside of showbiz with property developer Webb.

She previously gushed about her mystery man – revealing they had been living together for two years before she fell pregnant.

Shaughna told OK!: "We knew each other as teenagers and we were in the same circles. But we’ve both had partners and it’s never really been the right time.

"We were friends beforehand and then we got together romantically around summer 2020.

"It was around the time things started to open again after lockdown and we could mingle. And then we went back into multiple lockdowns and he moved into my flat. So we kind of fast-tracked."

A Met Police statement said: “On Friday 20th January, officers arrested a male on Kentish Town Road NW5 after recovering a quantity of Class A drugs.

“A search of a nearby address led to further Class A drugs being recovered, including Cocaine and MDMA.

“Billy Webb was charged with possession with intent to supply a Class A drug and being concerned in the supply of controlled drugs on 21 January.
