Love Island fans all ask the same question as Michael Owen's daughter Gemma joins the show's cast

LOVE Island stars have all been asking the same question since Michael Owen's daughter Gemma joined the show.

Everyone wants to know if the 42-year-old football legend, one of England's greatest ever players, will turn up in the villa in the family reunion day.


Each year – normally near the end of the series – the contestants bring in their mum and dad to meet their new partner.

Several fans were thrilled at the prospect, with one tweeting: "Omg will we actually see Michael Owen go into the villa when the parents come in 💀 pls (providing she gets that far obv)."

Gemma – confirmed today as one of the stars of Love Island this year – is far from the first person with a celebrity relative to appear.

Dani Dyer's dad is of course EastEnders legend Danny, while Sophie Piper was This Morning star Rochelle Humes' sister.
