LOVE ISLAND stars are aware that Michael Owen is Gemma’s dad, dumped Islander Ikenna Ekwonna has revealed.
Despite being the daughter of a sporting legend, Gemma’s managed to keep it under wraps for quite some time now.
She recently referenced him in the Beach Hut, however, as of yet, it was unknown whether the rest of the villa knew about him – until Sunday night.
“I don’t think the girls knew, like the guys knew.”

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.”
Last night, 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.

She continued: “But people always do the classic, ‘If they don’t score, they don’t win.’
“It’s something like that. It’s some bulls**t or whatever.”
Love Island continues tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
