Afia Tonkmor, who was the first Islander to be officially dumped, revealed that those inside the villa never spoke about the former Ballon d'Or gagnant.

When asked by a fan whether the Islanders were aware, she replied on Instagram: “If people do know, I did know before I went in because I watched her VT.

But if people do know, they don’t care… nobody really cares.

Jusqu'à présent, Gemma has dropped a number of hints about her link to the former Liverpool et Angleterre Légende.

La nuit dernière, in an Unseen Bits clip, Gemma finally mentioned her dad in the privacy of the Beach Hut.

There’s no way I’m going to do my dad,” Gemma said to the camera, where the other contestants couldn’t hear her.
