What is Snoochie Shy’s real name?

Snoochie’s real name is Cheyenne David, and she is 29-years-old. Before entering the castle, Snoochie revealed that her stage name was initially a term of endearment used by her grandmother, but actually means "flaccid, emaciated carrot". She told The Mirror, "My nan used to call me Snoochie, and it just stuck with me. I should have Googled it first because in the Urban Dictionary it’s 'a flaccid, emaciated carrot found in the refrigerator' – but by Snoochie my nan meant 'cute'.

"And Shy – my real name is Cheyenne. I am a little bit shy as well. I’m quite loud on my Insta and in work. But in camp I might be a little bit shy as well."

In the rapper’s music video to Man Don't Dance, the pair can be seen saying 'I do' at an altar, although this ceremony was purely for the purposes of the video and they are not a couple in real life.
