Fans spot Love Island's Luca's awkward reaction as Gemma embraces her male friend

Luca Bish looked less than impressed as he watched his girlfriend Gemma Owen jump into the arms of a male friend, wrapping her legs around his waist in the process.

The 23-year-old Love Island star was known to have had jealous sulks in the villa when Gemma, 19, got attention from another boy.

Since leaving the villa, Luca has since asked Gemma to be his girlfriend, in a romantic gesture he shared on Instagram.

But Luca looked like he was fuming inside when Gemma got to see an old friend again.

Gemma, who is the daughter of former England footballer Michael Owen, was quick to run over to her mate and jump up into his arms.


Her friend kissed her on the cheek as she wrapped her legs around him before he dropped her down to the floor.

An excited Gemma tells her friend: You're on camera".

Her male friend waves before walking towards Luca, holding his hand out for him.

He gives Luca a firm handshake and says: "Hi mate, nice to see you."

Luca replies through rather gritted teeth: "Nice to meet you."

YoungKingsTV's Instagram shared the clip and fans of Love Island were soon pointing out that they thought Luca was not happy about the situation.

Referring to their time on Love island, one commented: "He'll be pulling her for a chat after this."

Another wrote: "That’s an argument saved for when they're home."

Some thought that Gemma may have done it on purpose to get a reaction from Luca.

One commented: "Lmaooo she’s taking the p***."

Speaking to Grazia magazine, Luca admitted that some of his behaviour towards Gemma in the villa has come across as 'controlling'.

He said: "I've watched bits. I really wanted to after seeing what people were saying."

Luca continued: "Watching it back, I can hold my hands up and agree with that – I was.

"There are parts where I'm thinking this is not how I behave on the outside world. Why did I do that?"
