The Love Island contestant revealed her dad Narinder joined a stripping agency when she was a young girl and ended up touring the country to make money.
She told The Mirror: "When people hear the name Singh, people automatically assume that I’m from a traditional Indian household, but it’s like polar opposites.
"Bless my dad – it was a long, long time ago he was a stripper, but it shows you I haven’t been brought up in a traditional household and I’m proud to say I haven’t.
"Dad did it on his own, he just went out on his own. His friend had an agency so he worked with him.

"Being an Asian family, I think it is something to be proud of."
Shannon confessed all about her dad's stripper past during a racy interview earlier this year.
The glamour model, who coins in thousands from Only Fans,said it was "absolute jokes" and "loves" the idea that her Birmingham-born dad used to get his kit off for shows.
She explained: "When me and my brother were younger he used to have a silver Honda Civic, he had ‘Sweet Cheeks’ and pink writing with kisses all over the car to advertise his stripping.
"We were probably ten-years-old when we clocked on that something was different.
"When we got to secondary school people were like, ‘Your dad did my mum’s hen do.’ I was like, ‘Great’.
"My dad loved it.
"When we were younger we tossed it to the side, at high school it was mortifying now I love it and I think it’s jokes."
The stunning singleton added that it was her dad’s career and her mum’s support of his choice which led to her starting a glamour modelling career.
The ITV2 star has also boasted about having sex eight times a day and said she "loves it rough".
Love Island will start on Monday, June 28 at 9pm on ITV2.
