MICHAEL Owen has broken his silence after daughter Gemma Owen returned to the family’s mansion – without Luca.
The former footballer, who has remained very quiet throughout the Love Island process, cuddled up to his 19-year-old as they celebrated her being back at the sprawling £4 million home.
Hy het geskryf: “Welcome home @gemowen_1 it’s good to have you back!”
The pundit also posted a video of the party, as Gemma’s friends and family gathered around for a BBQ.
On Monday it was revealed that Gemma placed second on the ITV2 show alongside Luca Bish, 23.
Fans later claimed that they spotted a sign that Michael doesn’t approve of Luca.
Eagle-eyed social media users noticed how the former football star STILL doesn’t follow his daughter Gemma‘s man on Instagram after their exit from the villa together.
The couple exited the villa this week, and arrived back home to their waiting families in the UK – maar Michael was nêrens te sien nie.
It led fans to speculate that the former footballer didn’t approve of his eldest daughter’s boyfriend, who has been at the heart of a number of “bullying” rows throughout the show.

Michael also swerved parent’s day in the villa, and instead Gemma’s mum went in with a friend to meet Luca for the first time.
Gister Gemma returned to social media again after she was accused of being in a “stressed state” at the Love Island Reunion.
Tensions were high as the pair appeared downcast when they were pictured on their way back to the hotel after filming.
Luca set tongues wagging after he dropped a hint that there could have been trouble in paradise between the reality couple.
