Clarisse Juliette rose to fame on Love Islandthis summer when she entered the second villa Casa Amor as one of six bombshells and immediately turned heads, leading to the most complained about moment in the history of the ITV2 show when Faye Winter confronted Teddy Soares over his “attraction” to the newcomer.
Clarisse’s own journey in the villa was a turbulent one as after being brought back to the main villa by Tyler Cruickshank, he soon made a major U-turn and realised his heart belonged to Kaz Kamwi.
Although she left the villa single, it turns out Clarisse had A-listers sliding into her DMs even BEFORE she appeared on our screens. Chatting exclusively to heat, the reality star and influencer revealed she’d received messages from none other than Lewis Hamilton.
When asked who the most famous person in her DMs was, Clarisse admitted, “Lewis Hamilton, I think that’s the most famous person.”
She added, “It was like two years before [the show]. I was verified and stuff before I went on Love Island.”
While Clarisse didn’t end up becoming romantically involved with Lewis, the pair have become pals. She told us, “We’re really good friends, every time we bump into each other at an event we’re like, ‘oh, hi!'”
The F1 star, who has previously dated Nicole Scherzinger and is rumoured to have romanced Rihanna and Rita Ora, isn’t Clarisse’s only celeb connection though as Khloe Kardashian and Michael B Jordan have liked her pictures on Instagram.
“Khloe] just likes my pictures sometimes. I love her though, I love all the Kardashians,” Clarisse said when [she joined us on heat’s Under the Duvet with VOXI back in August.
She appeared on the show with fellow Islander Aaron Francis and the pair later sparked romance rumours when they were spotted cosying up to each other at a number of events.
Revealing what REALLY happened between them, Clarisse told us, “We went on a few dates and was just hanging out going to events and stuff but it didn’t turn into dating. I think we’re more friends. We wouldn’t be together.”
Despite not having the best experience on Love Island, the show hasn’t put Clarisse off looking for love and she admitted that she’s very much single and ready to mingle.
After things didn’t work out with Aaron, we asked Clarisse if there are any potential love interests on her radar, but she said, “No, I wish there was! I’m so lonely and single.
“It’s cold, it’s raining, I need cuddles. What is going on honestly?”
