It’s not that. Some North Africans from the south do have a little ssa in them. And besides, Yemen is right beside east africa! Their is a high chance she does have some black in her but can pass off as mostly white or Caucasian.

She is likely of Yemeni descent on her mother’s side; South Shields has a sizable Yemeni community:

She says in an interview “I’m quarter-Egyptian, quarter-Yemeni.”
