ITV Love Island's Luca Bish shares subtle support for Gemma after sharing post-villa reality

Love Island star Luca Bish may as well be back in the villa as he posted a sun-soaked snap of himself on holiday on social media. The 23-year-old took to Instagram a day after Gemma Owen teased the pair's holiday plans.

Gemma, 19, shared a video of herself waiting for beau Luca after they both spent the day attending meetings just a week after making it to the final of the ITV2 dating show. After being spotted in Manchester amid reportedly signing a 'six-figure deal' with a fashion company, the dressage rider updated her many social media followers on Wednesday to discuss her "new opportunities".

Speaking to the camera while in the car, the daughter of former footballer Michael Owen, said in a video posting on her Instagram Story: "I've had an amazing couple of days, yesterday was so exciting. New opportunities, can't wait." She also shared she was in the car waiting for Luca, who was in a meeting. She added: "We're flying out with family and some family friends to shoot some content for OG [Gemma Owen's swimwear brand]."

Gemma then kept the video going as Luca entered the car. But he didn't appear impressed as she said 'hello' and tried to get him to address the camera. Luca then said: "Oh God, you're so annoying!" before Gemma burst out laughing.

But he appears quite comfortable now in front of the camera judging by his latest Instagram post which showed his support to his new partner. Showing off his bronzed tan and many tattoos in a pair of dark grey shorts, Luca could be seen soaking up the sun on a lounger.

He captioned the post: " Does this count as our first holiday together or? It’s only right that I wear @ogbeachwear @gemowen_1," referring to Gemma's swimwear brand which she set up prior to heading to Mallorca to appear on the 2022 series of Love Island.

Gemma's dad, Michael is also currently out of the country and as Gemma mentioned family and friends being on their trip, it could be the perfect opportunity for her dad to meet her new man.

Meanwhile, Luca recently took to TikTok to share his actual post-villa reality. In the short video, the islander, who finished runner-up on the ITV2 dating series alongside Gemma, could be seen partying in a darkened room in a pair of shades as he wrote: "What I thought life would be like after leaving the villa."

He then switched to a different video which showed him and Gemma walking down the street before he panned the camera to show him carrying her handbag. "Reality," he then wrote across the clip before writing in the caption: "Wouldnt have it any other way." And fans were impressed.

@user739904 said: "When a man cares. He doesn’t mind to carry your bag." @user8617984504297 echoed: "We love a man who isn’t afraid to show his girl he cares." @Ryan Mason commented: "Realist islander by a mile Mate, loved You and Gem in there, be happy and live Your lives, hope it all works out great for U both!" @ColeStar90 added: "This couple will go far together mark my words."
