Speaking about her motivations at the time on her Just Giving page, Savanna wrote: ‘I was sat down one day with my mum and I said I to her “I want to shave my hair”.
‘It got to a point where I’ve damaged my hair SO much throughout the years that I might as well shave it off, I was getting really down about the way my hair started to look.
‘At the age of 21 it started to change and it was getting me down and NOTHING was helping the matter, every time I looked in the mirror it used to annoy me. So what better way to start a whole new fresh and do it all for charity!’
Savanna, who first hit television screens when she joined Love Island in Casa Amor, spoke with Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary as part of the Friday Feel Good segment on the show.

They discussed a video the singer posted on Tik Tok last month which showed her surprise reunion with her loved ones after she came home New York, where she had lived for the past year.
In the heartwarming video, Savanna captured her family’s reaction to her walking through the door, including her mother who dropped to the floor in shock.
She was also able to surprise her sister by hiding in her bed and jumping out and her best friends by simply strolling through the front door.
Savanna had just gone through a break up and was about to go on tour before it was cancelled due to Covid when she decided to move to New York on a whim because she has an American passport.
