Love Island viewers were left in hysterics when his daughter Belle Hassan questioned whether Barcelona is in Rome in a hilarious edition of the series’ Unseen Bits earlier this month.
And Tamer Hassan has defended his daughter’s intelligence as he claimed ‘she’s not that dumb’ and revealed she went to private school when she was younger during Tuesday’s episode of The Jeremy Vine Show.
The gangster-movie star, 51, was left in a fit of giggles as he told host Jeremy: ‘No no no… she must have been talking about the EU or something, she knows Barcelona is not in Rome!’

After watching the funny clip back, The Football Factory actor Tamer explained: ‘She was privately educated, she’s not that dumb.
‘I’m crap with geography but I know where that conversation was, there was definitely something behind it.’
In the footage, Londoner Belle, 21, who is coupled up with Anton Danyluk, 24, claimed she was shocked when the gym owner confirmed his mum had a thick Scottish accent just like him.
The make-up artist told the girls: ‘I don’t know why I thought his mum would speak like me, I didn’t think she would have a Scottish accent.’

A shocked Joanna Chimonides, 22, replied: ‘Has she?’ ‘Well yeah, obviously’, Belle replied.
‘Oh my God has she?’ asked Joanna, equally flabbergasted.
Belle continued: ‘Yeah, did you just not think that mums spoke like us?’
Jourdan Riane, 24, piped up: ‘Not when the country is Scotland!’
Belle then added: ‘We cleared up that Edinburgh is actually in Scotland last night.’
Joanna, once again surprised, exclaimed: ‘Is it?‘
Defence: ‘I’m crap with geography but I know where that conversation was, there was definitely something behind it’, he shared
‘Is Barcelona in Rome?’ In the footage, Londoner Belle struggled with geography as the location of Italy’s capital city caused mass confusion
‘Seriously!’ Belle said, adding, ‘Dublin is [in] Ireland did you know that?’
Joanna then asked the others: ‘Is Italy in Rome or Rome in Italy?’
Proud of knowing the answer, Jourdan said: ‘Rome is in Italy, Rome is the capital of Italy.’
A suspicious Belle pushed: ‘Is it? Is Barcelona in Rome?’

Jourdan then responded, completely deadpan: ‘Barcelona is in Italy.’
‘I thought it was Spanish’, Belle mused.
Vogue model Jourdan has since insisted she was just joking during the conversation, as she said in a recent interview with beau Danny Williams on Lorraine: ‘That conversation had a lot more depth to it, I corrected myself and said it was in Spain.
‘If i genuinely believed it was in Italy, that would be a problem’, the brunette cheekily said.
