Shekoni has also made guest appearances in Casualty, Fat Friends and The King of Queens.
In 2005, she appeared in the ITV reality TV show, Celebrity Love Island alongside Calum Best, Paul Danan, Abi Titmuss and Nikki Ziering among others. She was the first celebrity to be voted off the show by the public. "For the short period I was there I got on with everybody and didn't have any negative experiences. But when I watch it now I just think, oh God, I had a lucky escape that I didn't end up crying in front of the cameras, or getting rejected by any of the guys, or involved in any of the arguments."
Shekoni lives in Los Angeles where she has appeared on US television shows such as NCIS, All of Us and Damages. She was the host of Fox reality show When Women Rule the World (2008) although the show was never broadcast in America. She played Zafrina in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
