ITV Love Island's Gemma Owen says she will return to old job

Love Island runner-up Gemma Owen has said she will return to her old job.

The 19-year-old daughter of Michael Owen previously worked in the dressage industry. She competed in the sport internationally and has made no secret for her love of horses.

On Tuesday evening, the reality TV star took to Instagram to take part in a Q&A night with her fans. One follower asked her if she ever had plans to return to her previous work despite her new found fame.

Gemma answered the question, as she said: "The short answer is yes, I’m definitely going to be carrying on competing. At the moment things are obviously still up in the air so I can’t wait to get back into a normal routine but it’s something I’ve been training in forever so I’m not going to stop." She added: "With my riding I'd love to carry on riding internationally again."

As well as working with her horses once more, the young entrepreneur also plans to ramp up things with her business. Before heading into the ITV villa, where she met current boyfriend Luca Bish, Gemma created a luxury swimwear brand - OG Swimwear.

As part of the Q&A, she said: "I’d love to scale up my business and maybe get some help and an investor, and with this side of things look at TV opportunities, continue working with brands and just grow." She is set to have a number of exciting things happening in the next few weeks including launching an edit with fashion retailers Pretty Little Thing.
