While each islander is quizzed on their claim to fame before entering the villa, new girl Belle has a very impressive connection as her father is actor Tamer Hassan, 51.

Who is Tamer Hassan?

Tamer is a Hollywood actor. He's starred in The Football Factory, The Business, and Game of Thrones.

He is best known for his role in The Football Factory, where he starred as the leader of the Millwall Firm opposite Danny Dyer.

The actor said he's "very proud of his daughter" for the way she's been in the villa, but was left disappointed in Anton Danyluk after he kissed Anna Vakili during a game of 'snog, marry, pie'.

He told the tabloids: "On the outside Belle would not tolerate that behaviour. If Anton genuinely has feelings for my daughter, he's going to have to work harder to win her back, to gain her trust."

When did he star in Game of Thrones?

Tamer has starred in a number of films, but one of his biggest roles was in Game of Thrones where he played one of the Khals in 2016. In one scene he appeared alongside Emilia Clarke’s character Daenerys Targaryen as she tried to take over as leader of the Dothraki people.

What else has he starred in?

In 2004 he had a small part in Daniel Craig film Layer Cake, as a character named Terry.

His roles in The Football Factory and The Business opposite Danny Dyer meant Belle would often hang out with Love Island 2018 winner Dani Dyer as their dads worked on set.

Belle said she has a very close relationship with her dad, saying he’s “very supportive” and “like my best friend”.

Before entering the villa, she revealed the words of advice her dad gave her: “He’s told me to be myself but has also warned me, ‘I’m watching and I’m going to be seeing every detail!’”
