Love Island theory gripping social media after new Gemma and Luca details emerge

Love Island stars Ikenna and Amber shockingly revealed in Sunday’s episode of Love Island: Aftersun, that contestants do know Gemma is the daughter of famous football star Michael Owen.

The pair discussed their journey in the villa, after they were dumped after viewers voting them out.

Former islander Ikenna revealed the islanders were told in unaired scenes of the show.

Comedian Darren Harriot, 33, asked Ikenna what it was like getting a foot massage from islander Gemma, 19.

Ikenna said: "We didn’t really know until like the second or third day.

"I don’t think the girls knew, like the guys knew."

Ikenna’s comments mean the boys knew, but the girls didn’t know the guys knew.

Viewers have shared their thoughts in response to Ikenna’s comments on the revelation on Love Island: Aftersun and are convinced Luca pursued Gemma abruptly because of her famous Dad.

Taking to Twitter, fans shared how they worked out why Luca decided to couple up with Gemma so suddenly in the first recoupling of season eight.

23 year old fishmonger Luca Bish, went from being coupled up with Paige to stealing Gemma from Davide after confessing his feelings for Gemma.

One viewer said: “Omg Ikenna revealed they didn’t know until the second or third day that they knew about Micheal Owen & that the girls didn’t know they knew.

“That would explain why Luca changed to Gemma so abruptly, I put my cards on it.”

A second said: “So the boys/everyone found out who's Gemma's dad is and just so happened to be the day Luca became interested in Gemma #LoveIsland.”

The fans stated Luca swapped Paige for Gemma just after he found out she was Football legend Michael Owen’s daughter.

Despite being the daughter of Michael Owen, Gemma’s successfully managed to keep it under wraps on air for quite some time now.

Another fan said: “No wonder why Luca is clinging onto Gemma for dear life. The boys found out who Gemma is on the 3rd day according to Ikenna.”


“Ikenna just confirmed the guys knew who Gemma’s dad was after the 2nd day. Luca defo only moved to her for ulterior motives.”

While on Love Island aftersun, Amber and Ikenna revealed their thoughts on Dami and Indiyah coupling up, growing closer and going on their first date.

Fans thought Amber threw shade at the couple and stated that Dami and Indiyah could have waited until they “took their water bottles” out of the villa.


A viewer said: “Amber seems a bit bitter on aftersun #LoveIsland she didn't like Dami”

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
