Now that we know Love Island 2023 was the last winter Love Island we'll see for a while, we've got an extra appreciation for the memorable couples and bombshells it gave us. We got one of our most wholesome winning couples Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan, as well as couples like Tanya Manhenga and Shaq Muhammad and Aussie bombshell Jessie Wynter with her farming TikTok sensation Will Young.

One of the standout stars and most memorable bombshells of that season was Claudia Fogarty, who had an on/off relationship with Casey O'Gorman.

So, who is Claudia Fogarty? Here's everything you need to know.

Who is Claudia Fogarty?

Claudia was a contestant on the winter series of Love Island 2023. She made her memorable entrance during the heart-rate challenge on day 23. Although she was dumped from the Island on day 45, she became one of the breakout stars of her series.

How old is Claudia Fogarty?

She is 29 years old. When she left the villa, there was some confusion around her age, which she quickly cleared up on bestie Samie Elishi's YouTube video. "According to Instagram I'm 40. Apparently I look like I'm 40... All the haters can do one."

Where is Claudia Fogarty from?

Northern lass Claudia is from Blackburn.

What does Claudia Fogarty do?

Before entering the villa, Claudia already had her own fashion boutique, Sister Stories, with her sister Danielle. The sisters founded the brand in 2021, and it now has over 35,000 instagram followers.

Who is Claudia Fogarty's dad?

Daughter of worldwide famous motorcycle racer, Carl Fogarty, Claudia is used to the public eye.

Having a dad who won I'm A Celeb in 2014, Claudia already had a reality TV champion in her corner, so what advice did the King of the Jungle offer his daughter before she entered the realm of reality TV?

"My dad just told me to be myself, he said the one thing you can’t do is hide who you are, he said he loves who I am and everyone else will love me," she admitted.

Who did Claudia Fogarty couple up with in the villa?

For the majority of her time on Love Island, Claudia was coupled up with Casey O'Gorman, but the pair didn't last long. Although they survived the dreaded Casa Amor, Casey then chose to recouple with bombshell Rosie Seabrook while Claudia coupled up with rugby player, Keanan Brand. Claudia and Keanen were sent packing, but fans (like us) still held a candle that she and Casey could reunite.
