New Love Island contestant Belle Hassan has revealed she has a surprising connection to Game Of Thrones

The 21-year-old make-up artist, who is one of 12 new Casa Amor bombshells, admitted that her dad has appeared in the hit fantasy series. 

Speaking ahead of her debut on the ITV2 reality show, Belle said: “My dad is an actor, Tamer Hassan. He’s been in The Football Factory, The Business, Game Of Thrones - he is my link to the famous world.”

Tamer appeared in the sixth series of Game Of Thrones, where his character, Forzho, crossed paths with Daenerys Targaryen.

Forzho was one of the Khals who opposed her taking leadership of the Dothraki, but he later ended up dead after Daenerys burned all of his people. 

Describing her dad as “very supportive”, Belle continued: “He is like my best friend and is always there for me. He’s told me to be myself but has also warned me ‘I’m watching and I’m going to be seeing every detail!’”

Belle also revealed that because of Tamer’s role in The Football Factory, she’d also crossed paths with a famous Islander.

“Because he was in a film with Danny Dyer, I’ve met Dani Dyer when we were kids,” Belle added. 

When she gets into the villa, Belle said she is looking forward to getting to know Anton Danyluk, while also describing Tommy Fury as “gorgeous”.

The latest twist on Love Island will see the second villa – known as Casa Amor – reintroduced, with the current Islanders then being split up by gender. 

The girls will be joined by six new boys, while the existing male contestants will soon have six new girls to keep them company. 

Casa Amor’s reintroduction follows the exit of Tom Walker and Arabella Chi, who were dumped from the Island during Thursday’s show. 

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
