Inside Love Island star Tasha Ghouris celebrity connections including model Kate Moss
Love IslandsingletonTasha Ghouriis a dancer and has modelled for a number of big brands.
It’s no surprise then that the beauty has a past full of A-list stars includingKate MossandStrictly Come Dancingstars.
Tasha made history as the first deaf contestant on Love Island, and was praised by Strictly Come Dancing andEastEndersstar Rose Ayling-Ellis following the announcement.
Rose said: "We are really pleased that another major tv show is featuring a deaf contestant. Representation matters."
Tasha and Rose are also Instagram friends, with the islander tellingThe Sunthat she hopes to meet Rose after leaving the villa, saying: "I think Rose is such an amazing role model.
"I love Strictly as well because I'm a dancer. It's amazing to see what she did, so beautiful and sent a powerful message and she's also representing me as well as the deaf community as well."
Rose is not Tasha's only link to Strictly Come Dancing, as the Love Islander is also reported to have been involved with Rose's professional dancing partner Giovanni Pernice.
The stars reportedly met after Giovanni slid into Tasha's Instagram DMs in January 2022, and the two began messaging each other – with sparks flying in the process.
Although romance blossomed between the couple, Tasha was already in a relationship and Giovanni was on tour, meaning their brief relationship came to an end quite swiftly.
A source toldMail Online: "Tasha was impressed by how gentlemanly he was, taking her out to top London restaurants and offering to send cars to collect her, but she's independent and always made her own way to see him.
"Their romance didn't progress because Giovanni was travelling a lot with the Strictly tour and Tasha was already involved with someone else."
Love Island bosses have compared her to supermodel Kate Moss, as Mike Spencer toldDaily Star: "She's an amazing girl – so funny, she reminds me of a young Kate Moss.
"She's one of the girls you just think, 'OMG you're amazing'."
Tasha previously appeared in advertising campaigns for Pretty Little Thing, the company thatMolly-Mae Hagueis the Creative Director of.
However, it is not known if the two have ever met in person, or if Molly Mae-Hague reached out to Tasha ahead of her Love Island appearance.
Musician MNEK appeared as a guest judge on Ru Paul's Drag Race UK, following a stellar year for the star, which included an appearance at the 2021 BRIT Awards.
Before his Ru Paul's Drag Race appearance the musician collaborated with Sleepwalkrs on the track More Than Words, which was accompanied by a music video featuring deaf dancers.
One of the dancers was none other than Tasha Ghouri, who made her music video debut on the track.
Speaking about the cameo, Tasha told Capital FM ahead of her Love Island debut: "That was my first major music video. Surprisingly enough it was about him celebrating the deaf community.
"It was such a great, exciting opportunity."
