Belle’s dad sparks new Love Island fake row as he suggests daughter is ‘acting’
Belle Hassan's dad has sparked a new Love Island fakery row after suggesting that his daughter is "acting" on the show.
Actor Tamer, who appeared in The Football Factory alongside Danny Dyer, also hinted that bosses were telling Islanders to cry in a bid for more drama.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, he told hosts Kate Garraway and Ben Shepherd: "Even in there, who knows whether the producers are saying, 'Listen, cry'. I'm an actor, I've got to sometimes [when] it's scripted."
After revealing he could "cry on tap", he said: "Women love men crying, it's a good way to get out of trouble. Start crying!"
Asked by Ben whether he was worried Belle might be being manipulated and if he had been cautious before she went on the show, he replied emphatically that he had not been.
He said: "No! Listen, my daughter's very talented, very smart, she's elegant, she holds her own well and she's sort of done stuff with me as a kid. She's a really talented actress, she did her drama school.
"She went through the right path. I was untrained at a Guy Richie and a Nick Love school, I just got thrown in and had to learn the hard way.
"For her it was so quick. She just went, 'Dad I want to do this' and I'm like, 'Really?' But I've got to support her. She wanted to be a make-up artist and found her love in that.
"She wasn't cool around fame when she was growing up. She kind of looked like she was worried about it but the wife says, 'No, no, she didn't like the attention he was getting cos you was her dad'.
"And all of a sudden she says she wants to go on the biggest show in the country and you're going to come out, probably the most famous person around for a minute. But she's gone in there, she's holding her own and we've got to support her."
Tamer said that he was "very proud" of his daughter but that he found it difficult and sometimes watched the show through his fingers.
"At first, I'm kind of ringing up the agent and I'm saying, 'Is it alright to watch?' and they're like, 'Nah, not today," he joked.
He added: "It's a game show, reality TV, we have to respect it and love it. It is what it is, we've got to move with the times. She is a woman and do you know what? She's liberating women."
Asked about what he thought of Anton, he jokingly pointed a stern finger at the camera.
Laughing, he added: "He's a good kid, I like him. He is what he says he is and he's an excitable kid. My daughter, she likes to mother so it can work and I hope she finds what she's looking for."
