Gemma Owen exploded onto the scene as the no-nonsense 19-year-old on last summer’s Love Island.

The firm head on her shoulders may have come from growing up with Michael Owen as her father, but she isn’t living in her father’s shadow. As an accomplished dressage rider and she boasts two million followers on Instagram Gemma is definitely a star in her own right.

Almost immediately after stepping out of the Love Island villa she signed a deal with PrettyLittleThing to create her own dream collections. And her latest one has dropped onsite this week.

The collection is very much giving summer vibes and the star told VIP Magazine, what her own summer plans entail, “I think it will be a bit of both. I think will carry on bits with work, I have a few exciting things coming up. I want to go on a summer holiday with the family and spend quality time with them. With my riding, I want to get to some competitions with that. Holidays are definitely on the cards.”

“I would like to come back to Ireland. Literally, the 24 hours I was there was so lovely, the people were so nice. I haven’t been back since the PLT Party. I would like to go for a long weekend!” she added when asked if a trip to Ireland was on the cards.

She also told the publication about how her family have supported her with her new found fame, “I think having a family that has experienced life in the public eye has helped. My dad knows it very well, even though we’re in different industries, he knows the highs and lows of it. It has been really helpful to go to him.

“We can share similar feelings. That has been good and useful. My family are very tight and close. That has helped when we do see negative rumours. Having that tight-knit, supportive family has been really amazing. It’s been good. I’m so thankful that they know what’s really going on.”

Gemma also revealed that this will be an “interesting” few months as she has lots of exciting plans, “I have this collection launching with PrettyLittleThing and then I have another collection launching in May with Abbott Lyon. I have been working with other brands on the influencer side of things as well as on the dressage side.”
