Claudia, a 28-year-old fashion boutique owner from Blackburn, made her entrance wearing a red angel outfit during the heart rate challenge, which saw contestants dress up in costumes to perform dance moves.

She is the daughter of superbike racer Carl Fogarty, who won I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! in 2014.

The King of the Jungle famously set up one of his daughters with campmate Jake Quickenden after his win – although it wasn't Claudia.

Quickenden dated her sister Danielle for three years and the pair were even engaged, but split in 2018 and now both have children with their new partners.

Ahead of her entrance to Love Island, Claudia said her dad was "proud" of her for taking part in the show.

She said: "He was really for it. 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."

Talking about her dad's rules for appearing on TV, she said: "Absolutely no sex on TV he said, he hasn’t really watched it before so it’s going to be a bit of a shock. I just said get a blind fold on, shut your eyes, if you don’t like it, turn it off."

However, she added that she wasn't daunted by her father's reality TV success, explaining: "My dad wins everything he does but for me it’s not about winning it’s about finding love.

"It was so nice to see how many people loved my dad and for people to see the real him. My dad will be proud to watch me, but he will also be nervous. He said he’s excited to see me on TV as opposed to him - he’s passed me the baton."

Last series of Love Island saw Michael Owen's daughter Gemma and Ronan Keating's son Jack take part, while Danny Dyer's daughter Dani won the show in 2018.
