Love Island’s Claudia Fogarty’s life from ITV star dad to Ex On The Beach brother in law
With the latest series of Love Island now well and truly in full swing, the South African villa is about to get a little more intense with the arrival of blonde bombshell Claudia Fogarty.
The 24 year old daughter of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here winner Carl Fogarty, is the latest stunner to enter the villa in the hopes of finding romance.
Leaving behind her thriving business at Storm Fashion for a holiday romance to remember, Claudia will be hoping to turn heads and win some hearts as she takes part in the ITV2 dating show.
But who exactly is Claudia and what is her life like off screen?
Born in London to Superbike racer Carl Fogarty and his wife Michaela, Claudia grew up alongside her big sister Danielle in what is believed to be rural Italy.
In addition, her parents are also said to have owned a house in Lytham St Annes, just five miles north of the Northern seaside town of Blackpool.
Thanks to splitting her time between two countries, Claudia reportedly speaks both Italian and English fluently, something which comes as no surprise, given her father’s previous strong relationship with Italian motorcycle manufacturers, Ducati.
One of Claudia’s main claims to fame is of course, her father Carl Fogarty, who became known as one of the most successful World Superbike racers of all time, thanks to a string of successes throughout the 1990s.
Originally riding for Honda, and then Ducati, Carl wracked up an impressive 59 wins in his career, with his daughters and wife frequently travelling around the world with him to cheer him on at each of the races.
Sadly, after suffering an accident in 2000, he was forced to retire after the serious crash, left him battling multiple injuries, including a serious shoulder injury which failed to heal well-enough to allow him to race again.
Despite retiring, Carl still kept his winning spirit alive, and even turned his hand to a new challenge in 2014, when he entered the I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here jungle.
In his final challenge of the series, Carl was challenged to eat a large cupful of live mealworms, two fried tarantulas, three live cockroaches, ostrich anus and a camel’s penis.
Never one to back down from the challenge, Carl did as he was asked – and went on to be crowned the King of the Jungle for his efforts.
Ex on the Beach brother in law
Carl isn’t the only famous relative Claudia has either, as her brother in law, Ross Worswick has also had his fair share of fame after starring in Ex on the Beach before meeting and falling in love with her sister Danielle.
The pair, who originally began dating in 2018, officially tied the knot last year, in not one, but two lavish ceremonies to mark their special day.
In the first of her ceremonies, an intimate affair at the local court house, the bride showed off her figure in a flattering white co-ord that consisted of a strapless buttoned top and a pair of wide-leg trousers, which she paired with white Christian Louboutin stiletto heels.
A second more ornate affair was later held in September, as the couple celebrated their exciting future together.
As well as tying the knot, the couple share one child together, a son named Mason, born in July 2021.
While many fans could be forgiven for thinking Claudia has a thriving career as a model, or perhaps even an influencer, it may surprise Love Island viewers to know that she is actually the co-owner of a thriving fashion business alongside her sister Danielle, entitled Storm Fashion.
The brand sells high-end fashion pieces to clients all across the UK, and boasts brands such as WildFox, JBrand, BellaFreud and Good American among it’s stocked lines.
In addition to selling products, Claudia also promotes them on her social media platforms and is frequently seen modelling a series of stylish ensembles on her social feeds.
Alongside her impeccable fashion sense, Claudia is well accustomed to luxury if her home is anything to go by.
Thanks to images shared on Instagram, fans have been able to catch a glimpse inside her impressive home, which features plenty of grey and taupe shades to provide a warp and cosy space.
Claudia is also no stranger to ornaments and personal touches to her rooms, with a golden set of shelves even showcasing a stunning array of vases, figurines and trinkets amid her chic and relaxing space.
