Anna Vakili addresses claims she was ‘rejected’ from Bethan Kershaw’s fashion launch

Here’s the real reason behind those pictures

Anna Vakili rejected club Bethan Kershaw party fashion launch

by Hannah Mellin |

Just like loads of us normal folk, Love Island star Anna Vakili and her sister Mandi made it their mission to try and enjoy the combination of sunshine and a bank holiday over the weekend. We're talking prosecco in the park followed by a dinner we haven't had to cook in the evening sunshine.

However, a whole load of drama ensued when pictures of them trying (and failing) to get into a swanky Mayfair club Novikov on Monday night surfaced online.

The pair were seen talking animatedly to the door staff as they tried to enter the restaurant before walking away into the night. The posh London bar, a favourite of Premier League footballers and reality stars, was also hosting Geordie Shore star Bethan Kershaw’s fashion party that night, with Bethan seen locking lips with TOWIE star Demi Sims in the street later on in the night.

However, Anna took to her Instagram stories to hit back at claims she was turned away from the fashion launch, explaining that she and her friends just wanted something to eat.

Lucie Donlan, Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague (series five)

When boxer Tommy Fury entered the villa with Curtis Pritchard, Lucie Donlan seemed to fancy him a bit. Then, when the blonde bombshell that is Molly-Mae Hague entered and took Tommy on a date, Lucie realised that she fancied him a lot. Unfortunately Molly-Mae was Tommy's preferred blonde and they're still together to this day. Seems like he made the right choice.

Love Island 2021's location 'CONFIRMED'

Sharing a picture of an article that was written about her, Anna jokingly wrote alongside, “@mandi_vakili it’s all your fault with your facial expressions 😂.”

She continued, “Press love to try and make me look bad but I’m always going to pull them up on their bullsh-t lies. Firstly I wasn’t even aware there was a fashion launch in the restaurant and my intention wasn’t to go to it so NO I wasn’t rejected from the party 🤦‍♀‍ I just wanted to go eat but was harassed by eight paps!

"Secondly I didn’t get 'turned away' my guy friend was wearing shorts and they said it wasn’t part of their dress code and I’m not one to leave my friend behind. Thirdly in the picture we were actually having a laugh outside and we have a good relationship with the staff inside and outside and are regulars there. They just take a bad picture and try to twist it.”

Well there we have it, the girl was just trying to eat…
