Love Island's Antigoni Buxton caused quite a stir as she splashed onto screens last week as the newest girl bombshell in the villa.
But it wasn't just the 26-year-old's striking corkscrew locks and uncanny resemblance to former islander Lucie Donlan that captivated attention.
Viewers were keen to understand that singer-song writer also has a famous TV chef mum, Tonia Buxton – who has made a number of regular appearances on Saturday Kitchen.

More interestingly, Antigoni was also linked to former ITV2 star Jack Fowler according to recent rumours.
However, a pal of the alleged couple has now revealed to Daily Star that the pair were never a real item but did hint that they may have connected in the past in some way.
The source told us: "I mean they are friends and they know each other but I think people are just going to take what they hear and turn it into something."
Talking about the pair being branded as "exes", their friend said: "But in terms of speaking like that, I don't think Jack or her are going to be crazy about that."
They added: "Whoever has put that out into the media must have a bit of an agenda."
According to reports, Antigoni had dated a fellow 2018 Love Island alum Jack Fowler – with rumours suggesting they'd hooked up a few times before things fizzled out.
It can't have been anything serious as the British-born Greek-Cypriot native admitted before entering the Spanish villa that she'd only ever been in love once – and she seemingly wasn't talking about her romance with Jack.
Antigoni was instead referencing a nine-year relationship with a childhood sweetheart – with the pair parting ways after the budding singer decided to focus all her energies on a career in music.
She said: "I’ve only ever been in love once – I don’t think I’ve been in love since.
"I think I fall in lust and infatuation quickly," she admitted while discussing former flames before going on the show.
Meanwhile, Antigoni's mum has not been best pleased with ITV over the lack of screen time her daughter was given on Monday's night's episode.
While sat in a bikini in a hot sauna on her Instagram story, Tonia fumed: "And hoping that my daughter Antigoni gets some more air time on Love Island because we love her and miss her and we don't see her."
