What many people might not know is that Emilia has a connection to a certain former London mayoral candidate.

Her cousin and political activist, Laurence Fox, has been subjected to a good deal of public scrutiny over the last few years, specifically to do with his often controversial opinions and damning indictments on “woke” culture.

Laurence has also stirred the pot with tweets about the Covid lockdowns since last year.

Emilia recently spoke out about her cousin in an interview with The Times saying that she ignores comments about his actions and doesn’t let that get in the way of their relationship.

She said in the interview: “I don’t know what emails you’ve had, but Laurence is my cousin, he’s family and I love my family.

“I think he’d be the first to advocate that people can have different opinions on things.

“We’ve had very different life experiences and Laurence’s political life is nothing to do with my relationship with him. We’ve had some amazing times together and we’ve been very mutually supportive of our personal lives.”

However, this is the only famous person who the star is linked to.
