Love Islanders discover who Claudia’s famous dad is as Casey works it out

Just a few hours after new bombshell Claudia Fogarty made her entrance into the Love Island villa, some Islanders managed to figure out who her famous dad is.

Claudia made her iconic entrance during the heart race challenge when the goal was to make the boys' heartbeat rise as much as possible.

As the Islanders were going to bed after the challenge, Casey O'Gorman went over to Tom Clare and Samie Eilishi, saying he recognised Claudia.

He went on to say that he believed her dad was former I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here winner Carl Fogarty.

He whispered: "The new girl, I recognised her on like Instagram. Her dad won I'm A Celeb, I think. Carl Fogarty.

Samie then asked: "Ah, so her last name is Fogarty?"

"I don't know, I don't know," Casey replied.

On his date with Claudia the next day, Tom went on to ask her about her dad, to which Claudia confirmed that Carl Fogarty is her dad.

She went on to say that it was Carl that wanted her to take the opportunity to go on the show.

She said: "My dad said he was really proud and to take the opportunity to find someone that’s not a d***head, that’s exactly what he said to me.”

Fans were quick to take to Twitter to compare Claudia to last series' contestant Gemma Owen, who's dad is footballer Michael Owen.

One person said: "Claudia not afraid to mention her rich father unlike Gemma set that the were acting like her dad is Lord Voldemort #loveIsland."

A second person said: "Claudia’s dad being Carl Fogarty is giving me Gemma from last series vibes #loveisland."

Ahead of her reality TV debut, Carl, 57, took to Instagram to post a gushing tribute to his daughter alongside a picture that showed the father-daughter duo enjoying a glass of bubbly.

In the caption, he wrote: “Good luck to my daughter @claudiafogarty who makes her long awaited appearance on tonight’s @loveisland.”

Alongside the statement, Carl posted three emojis, a nervous face, a ‘see no evil’ monkey, and fingers crossed emoji.

Her inclusion in the show was revealed last week when a source told The Sun: “Claudia is ready to strut into the villa imminently. She’s classy, beautiful and well-educated and is set to have all the boys fighting over her."

“Her life might be glamorous but family means everything to her and she’d love to meet the man of her dreams and settle down. But she’s promised not to be too raunchy, to save Dad’s blushes,” they added.
