Michael Owen reveals plans for ‘Meet the Parents’ episode of Love Island – as daughter Gemma goes on a date | Ents & Arts News

As any Love Island fan will know, contestants who make it through to the final episodes usually get the chance to welcome family members or friends into the villa – and meet the parents of the partners they’ve linked up with.

With England star Michael Owen’s daughter, Gemma Owen, starring in the series, there has been plenty of speculation as to whether the footballer might be donning his shorts and appearing poolside in Mallorca to check out his new beau.

Earlier this week, Island of love viewers saw Gemma go on her first date with Luca Bish outside the villa – and with the final likely to take place in just a few weeks at the start of August, they could still be there to record the family reunion scenes.

So will 19-year-old Gemma’s famous dad make an appearance if she makes it?

Well…probably not.

Michael Owen, who has played for Liverpool and Newcastle as well as England and now owns racehorses, was asked about his Love Island plans in a recent interview on Sky Sports’ At The Races while attending an event in Chester on Friday.

Asked which was more nerve-wracking, watching his horses or watching Gemma on Love Island, he said it was “definitely” the horse racing.

“I think [the horse] will always be in his race, but I know what I’m going to get from my daughter,” he said. “I’ve been her father for 19 years, so I’m pretty sure what I’m going to get from her.”

The football star was then asked about a possible appearance in the villa.

“My wife can fulfill that duty,” he replied. “I’ll represent the horses and she can represent the daughter.”

Sorry, Love Island – you’re clearly just not Michael Owen’s type on paper.
