Now Belle Hassan, a 21-year-old beauty therapist from Bromley, has opened up about exactly how easy it was for her to get on the show thanks to the connections of her famous dad, Tamer Hassan.
After her dad asked her what she thought of the opportunity she admitted to Closer Online, “I didn’t really think much of it and before I knew it one of his friends [got me in contact] with someone at ITV and then I did the audition and started the application process.”
Her dad also appeared on the show as part of the Meet The Parents segment to meet Anton not long after branding the Scotsman “disrespectful and disloyal” after he kissed Anna Vakili in an island competition.
