It looks like Luca Bish has finally gotten the chance to shake hands with beau Gemma’s famous football father Michael Owen.


The couple, who finished as runners-up in this year’s series of Love Island, jetted off together to join Gemma’s family at their villa in Portugal’s Quinta De Lago, where they were snapped enjoying an al-fresco family dinner with all the Owens brood.


The holiday marks the long-awaited meeting between Luca and Gemma’s father Michael Owen, who kept a low profile while his daughter was in the villa, and it seems that Luca’s been given the “thumbs up” from the former footballing legend.

Speaking to Brian Dowling and Fionnula Jones on the Six O’clock Show about her and Luca’s trip Gemma said “Yeah, family thumbs up. Yeah, very good. We had a little trip, bit of work, bit of relaxing, met all of them there. That was really positive, that was really nice.”.


It seems Luca has hit it off with Gemma’s dad, even leaving a cheeky comment under one of Mr Owen’s recent Instagram posts.


 The post, captioned “Family -1”, featured all the Owen clan, bar Gemma, who commented, “I was there for 4 days and you wait till I leave to get the family picture”. Luca then chimed in with a tongue-in-cheek remark, commenting “*-2”.

While Luca seems to have the family approval, it looks like he’s yet to pop the *girlfriend* question to Gemma, despite posting a story to Instagram in Portugal with the caption “Mission ‘ask Gem to be my girlfriend’ is in motion”.


The post prompted fans to speculate that he would ask Gemma while on holiday, but it looks like Luca was just teasing, as Gemma confirmed on The Six O’clock Show that the couple has yet to make things official!


However, the 19-year-old dressage rider did also hint on the show that now Luca’s meet the family, he might finally have the green light, telling Brian and Fionnula “Now we’ve got the approval, the balls in his court. Just waiting for him.”. No pressure Luca!
