ichael Owen has explained why daughter Gemma always looks so moody and serious in the Love Island villa.

The former England footballer, 42, said like him, the 19-year-old horse dressage champion always has her “game face on” and becomes a “horror” when it’s time to compete.

Revealing she can be a “nightmare” to live with at their £4m home in Cheshire, he also warned the other Islanders to “stay out of her way”.

Mr Owen said: “Match day or if it’s a big competition, going into that ring, she turns into a horror. It’s like that’s it – you get your game face on and you can’t control it.

“I didn’t want anyone talking to me on match day. In fact, or the day before. Just stay out of my way and let me do my business.

“She’s the same, she’s horrible. Stay out of her way when a big competition’s coming round. That’s how much it means to you. Start focusing on the job in hand.”

His remarks come as some fans claimed Gemma Owen is being kept in the villa in order for her dad to make an appearance on the show.

As the series approaches its finale, the contestants’ families enter the villa and they get to meet who their relative has coupled up with.

Taking to Twitter to share their theories, one viewer wrote: “So anyone with a rich dad who comes on the show is never leaving…”

Others wrote: “You actually think Gemma won that vote? Ekin-Su isn’t the nepotism baby here.”

“I think the reason Gemma is getting a main character edit rn is partly because if she stays till the end, the producers know they could bring her dad into the villa when they do the family visit episode. Imagine the attention that ep would get???”

Gemma Owen has been at the centre of drama on Love Island.

The latest twist saw newcomer Danica Taylor recouple with Gemma Owen’s partner Luca Bish but the couple remain stronger than ever.
