Love Island fans were shocked when they worked out Gemma Owen’s age when she dated her ex, new islander Jacques O’Neill, 23.

Fans took to Twitter to share their concerns after working out that Gemma Owen, 19, was just 16 when she dated Jacques.

The dressage rider was gobsmacked when her ex-boyfriend, a rugby player, entered the villa and revealed they had dated for eight months, a year and a half ago.

Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Broke up a year and a half ago… So he was with you when you were 16”.

Another guessed Gemma was slightly older at the time, writing: “So she was 17 when they broke up….”

A third quipped: “Jacques is an immediate no for dating a teenager. I’m disgusted.”

While another begged to know: “Soooo she was 17 when she was w him????”

“OMG, it gets worse! She was still in school, and he was like 21?!?! Nah, sorry mate, but that’s all kinds of wrong,” said one outraged fan wrote.

One viewer posted: “So confirmed they broke up a year and a half ago (when she was 17) and dated for like eight months,” alongside a queasy face.

Another concluded: “Gemma just turned 19 and broke up with this man 1.5 years ago when she was 17 and a half. She dated him for 8 months which means she started dating this man at 16 when he was 20??????”

It comes after Gemma, who is now coupled up with Luca Bish, confesses to still having feelings for Jacques, who plays Rugby for Castleford Tigers.

Later, as the Islanders get together over glasses of champagne, Jacques tells Gemma: “You look nice tonight, you know,” before telling the camera: “I am a flirtatious lad, like, I can’t help myself sometimes.”

Gemma then told the girls: “It’s weird because I still look at him and I do fancy him like 100%. I look at him and I think you are fit, no question, you are fit.”

Paige Thorne, who was left single after the recent recoupling, agrees, saying: “Yeah, I think we all look at him and think he’s fit.”
