Yachts in Monaco and private villas in Mykonos: Inside Claudia from Love Island’s nepo baby life

Her dad is worth £39million


Almost as soon as Claudia walked into the Love Island villa, Tom and Casey knew who she was: Carl Fogarty’s daughter. But thank god, unlike last summer’s season with the whole “My dad’s Michael Owen” fandango between Gemma and Luca, Tom asked Claudia flat out if she was related to Blackburn’s famous superbike racer. No awkwardness attached.

And, since leaving the show, Claudia has quickly resumed her seriously glamorous nepo baby life in an endlessly extensive monochrome wardrobe (YSL handbags are coming out of her ears). So, in case you’re intrigued by what it was like for the Islander growing up as millionaire sportsman Carl Fogarty’s daughter, here’s everything you need to know:

Her dad is worth £39million

Claudia’s dad has a huge £39million fortune from his success as a superbike racer. Learning his trade from his dad and motorcycle racer George Fogarty (it’s a whole long line of nepo babies!), Carl earned his cash by securing seven superbike world titles as well as beating Gemma Collins and Jake Quickenden to become king of the I’m A Celeb jungle in 2014.

Carl and Claudia have a super close relationship and he’s been supportive of her decision to go on Love Island. Although he did advise her to find a guy who’s “not a dickhead” and judging by how Casey behaved after Casa Amor, she might not have managed to fulfil his wishes and take his recommendation on board.

She has a clothing brand with her sister Danielle

For work, Claudia and her sister Danielle run a clothes boutique in the millionaire-filled Ribble Valley in Lancashire called Storm Fashion. It’s unclear how they funded the business but they started off by stocking mid-level luxe brands like Bella Freud and American Vintage before starting their own brand in 2021 called Sister Stories.

From Instagram, it looks like their pair are often hanging out, getting coffees, and modelling the hoodies together. But, according to their website, they’ve “worked extremely hard on designing the best quality products that fit and feel amazing for a reasonable price”.

Unsurprisingly, Claudia and her family were hanging out in celeb circles way before she went on Love Island. Claudia’s sister Danielle used to date X-factor singer Jake Quickenden (who her dad was in the I’m A Celeb jungle with) before moving on to and marrying Ross Worswick from Ex On The Beach.

Now Ross and Danielle are married, have a son called Mason, and announced another pregnancy just as Claudia went into Love Island. Molly Mae wished them congratulations in the comments. What is this multiverse of madness?

She lives in a gorgeous house in Blackburn

Claudia’s regularly pictured in numerous houses when taking outfit pics on Instagram and it’s hard to work out which lounge is her’s, which is her dad’s and which is her sister’s. But they all have a few things in common: They’re all grey, they’re all massive, and they’re all worth millions. Samie and Tom have visited since they returned from South Africa.

Her trips to Mykonos, Monaco and Dubai are insane

On yachts in Monaco, at Salt Bae’s restaurant in Dubai, sunbathing in huge villas and at glitzy beach clubs in Mykonos— Claudia probably thought Love Island’s South Africa villa was like a Premier Inn. Seriously, the woman has downgraded. She really must have gone on the show to find love.
