ITV Love Island's Gemma Owen teases 'best day' as she heads to Manchester 'to sign huge deal'

Gemma Owen has fuelled the rumour mill in her latest social media post. The Love Island star, who finished the ITV2 dating show in second place alongside partner Luca Bish, is reportedly set to sign a 'six-figure deal' with a major fashion brand.

The 19-year-old, who already owns her own swimwear business, is said to be teaming up with popular fast fashion brand BooHoo after being in demand following her stint in the Mallorcan villa this summer.

Gemma, who is the daughter of former footballer Michael Owen, was spotted at Manchester Piccadilly station before making her way to the BooHoo offices alongside a security guard, OK! reports. The islander tried to keep a low profile while being approached by viewers of the show she has spent eight weeks appearing in.

The international dressage rider cut a stylish figure, donning a nude-coloured crop top and a pair of white, wide-leg trousers which she finished off with a pair of gold wedges, gold bracelets and a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses. And her signature gold choker necklace, which captured the eyes of Love Island fans, was also back.

It was reported that "lots of brands" have been "keen to sign her" and it comes after reports in July, before she even reached the final of the ITV reality show, that Gemma's management team had been "bombarded" with brands eager to work with her.

While Gemma has announced any work news just yet, she did take to Instagram on Tuesday night (August 9) to share a picture of a bunch of flowers. The beautiful bouquet continued peace and white roses which she placed next to her on the table. "The best day," she wrote alongside the photo on her Instagram Story.

Away from her potential brand deals, Gemma has been able to spend some time with her beau Luca. The pair appeared on Good Morning Britain on Monday (August 8), a week after coming runner-up to Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti in the Love Island 2022 final.

There was an awkward moment when fishmonger Luca, 23, said of his new partner: "You've changed a little. For the better, she's come more out of her shell. When I saw you with your mum and that." Gemma soon shot him a look before sharing how close she is to her mum Louise.

The pair also hit back at claims they were on the rocks, as Gemma insisted they were "official without the label" before Luca vowed: "I will ask her," as they were quizzed on whether they'll officially be boyfriend and girlfriend soon.
