ITV has announced that the daughter of famous footballer Michael Owen is moving forward The island of love as part of the cast of the hugely popular show’s eighth series.
Let’s be honest guys, with football season over, we’re all going to be watching Love Island for the next few weeks, so you’re definitely interested in who’s going on, and the fact that he’s an Owen just makes that more interesting.
Gemma Owen, 19, an international dressage rider and entrepreneur, received her father’s blessing for appearing on the show, reports the Sun.
His father has dazzled football fans with his club and country goals and he is still on our screens as an expert and that commercial where he pretends to be flying in a helicopter over Dubai.
Now Gemma will bet her own claim to fame The island of love and says he is a “very competitive” person, just like his father.
It’s no surprise as he has competed in dressage for Britain since he was 11 and says he’s someone who will “always go” for whatever he wants.
Gemma, who describes herself as “funny, flirtatious and fiery,” says she’s moving on The island of love as she is “open to finding love” and “wanting to have a really fun summer”.
He said, “I was seeing someone and then it didn’t work out, so I thought, ‘Why not?’
“I think I’m good at giving advice, I’m a good person to talk to, I’m very honest. If I wanted the same guy, I’d do it but in a nice and respectful way.
“I will always look for what I want. But at the same time, I will not ruin something for someone in a correct relationship or hinder a couple if they have a genuine connection. I would” Don’t do anything to another girl that I wouldn’t be happy if they did me “.
His father, it could certainly be argued, was known for being as loyal as the Love Island kids who went to Casa Amore when it comes to the football teams he has played for in his illustrious career.
Newcastle United fans might argue that he spent all of his time at St James’ Park doing some with England while they should have been paired.
Liverpool fans were also not very impressed when he decided to put all his eggs in Manchester United’s basket after leaving Newcastle.
He might be a Reds ambassador these days, and that’s what he is, but fans have never quite forgiven him for joining their rivals.
The 42-year-old said he believed Liverpool were still the best team in Europe, despite the defeat to Real Madrid, but was soon told he was wrong.
However, at least he can distract himself from that loss by watching a bunch of muscular guys beating up his daughter every night for the next month or so …
