After Dani Dyer (daughter of Danny), Tommy Fury (brother of Tyson) and Sophie Piper (sister of Rochelle Humes), we’ve been waiting for a celebrityconnection to come up in this year’s crop of Islanders. This year’s link is a bit more tenuous, as Aaron Francis has revealed that he’s related to Made In Chelsea star Hugo Taylor.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Aaron revealed:
Hugo is my cousin. I haven't seen him in a while. We aren't that close. But if I ever wanted to ask him for advice, I could. I'm quite close to his dad, too.
Being related to Hugo and seeing what life is like for him means I can gauge what it is like to be on a TV show.
Who is Hugo Taylor?
Hugo was one of the original cast members of Made In Chelsea when the show began back in 2011. He remained on the show for three series before quitting in 2012. He’s gone on to appear on a whole range of celebrity shows, including I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, Come Dine With Me and Dinner Date.
Now 35, Hugo is married to fellow ex-Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh. The couple welcomed their first child Sienna last year and have recently announced that they are expecting a second baby girl later this year.
Who is Aaron Francis?
As well as being related to Hugo Taylor, Aaron Francis is used to rubbing shoulders with well-known names through his work as a luxury events host and worked Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie’s weddings recently. He’s also met Stormzy whilst working at the BritAwards in 2020.
