GEMMA Owen has reunited with her dad Michael Owen since leaving the villa – and he surprised her with a ‘cursed’ yellow beanbag.
The 19-year-old finally returned home to her incredible house in Cheshire after two months away while starring in Love Island.
On Monday it was revealed that Gemma placed second on the ITV2 show alongside Luca Bish, 23.
After a couple of days in London, the equestrian finally made it back home – and her parents pulled out all the stops with a stunning balloon display.
They also surprised her with a yellow beanbag – a piece of furniture that Gemma and her co-stars said was “cursing” them.
During an episode of Unseen Bits the contestants revealed that they had noticed how anyone who sat down on the yellow beanbag beside the pool was then surrounded by “drama”.
Voice-over star Iain Sterling revealed how the stars had been going to extreme lengths to avoid sitting down on the “cursed” item.
He joked that it was behind the fall-out between Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti in tense scenes earlier that week.
Louise shared a pic of the father daughter duo sitting on the yellow bean bag.
She captioned the post: “Oh no not more drama.”
