Love Island's Luke Trotman has a famous family member – his mum, Beverley, appeared on The X Factor in 2007.
Love Island's Luke Trotman has been a popular contestant in the South African villa, winning over the heart of Siannise Fudge and becoming best pals with Luke M.
While he will emerge from the series finale as a reality TV star, it seems he's not the only celebrity in his family.

His mum, Beverley, finished in sixth place on The X Factor in 2007 - the year that Leon Jackson won.
Who is Luke Trotman's mum Beverley?
In his VT before entering the show, he said: "My mum was on The X Factor in 2007. She’s called Beverley Trotman and came sixth so I appeared on TV cheering her on in the audience."
Luke revealed that she has 'done a few musicals' since appearing on the ITV show and now sings with the Kingdom Choir - the group that performed at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in May 2018.
However, he added that she didn't actually perform at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day.
During Luke's time in the villa, an adorable throwback video surfaced online showing a young Luke supporting his mum before her audition.
He said: "I really love my mum. I'm really proud of her."
What has Beverly said about Luke's time on Love Island?
In a clip for Friday night's Love Island, Luke is clearly overwhelmed by emotion to see his mum entering the villa, saying in the Beach Hut: "I can't speak!"
But his mum is more concerned about the code word he and the boys have been using for their bedroom antics, quizzing: "So, tell me about this breakfast?" before Luke holds his head in embarrassment.
And when Luke returned from Casa Amor to reunite with Siannise a video of Beverley's heart-melting reaction went viral, showing her in tears of happiness that the couple were back together.
