Gemma Owen’s Famous Father Michael Looks Set To Appear On Love Island

Alexa, play Don't Call Me Up by Mabel, because a major bombshell might be entering the Love Island villa

Somebody better start playing Don’t Call Me Up by Mabel, because a major bombshell might be entering the villa, the one and only Michael Owen.

Ok so he wouldn’t be entering as a bombshell, but we still might get a slowmo walk through the love heart archways, so close enough right?

The legendary footballer and father of islander Gemma is rumoured to be joining the show for this year’s Meet the Parents.

A source close to the family told the The Sun, “The end of July looks to be a golden opportunity for Michael to see Gemma.”

“He’s notoriously private and anything could change between now and finals week but, all things considered, the odds on him taking part are better than ever.”

And chances are he wouldn’t be alone.

Gemma has been very open about how close she is with her family, but especially her mum, Louise. With Gemma even calling Louise her “best friend” so we have to imagine the girls are dying to be reunited.

Of course any Meet the Parents episode is exciting, but they’re twice as interesting when it’s a celeb offspring in the villa.

Who can forget in 2018 when Dani Dyer got a video call from her dad, Eastenders star Danny Dyer?

Yep, it will be pretty exciting to see how the whole villa reacts, but we’ll be paying close attention to Luca Bish, who Gemma is coupled up with.

Meet the Parents will provide the perfect opportunity for Michael to grill his daughter’s love interest…but it will also let us know if Luca is a massive fan of the footballer.

We cannot wait!
