Love Island UK: Has it turned into the Gemma Owen show?

Love Island star Gemma Owen has become the star of the new series, with bosses now set to introduce another of her acquantances into the villa.

The dressage champion, 19, who is the daughter of footballer Michael Owen, has been at the centre of multiple episodes, marking several fans to ask whether it’s turned into ‘The Gemma Show.’

Gemma, who has already had liasons with hunks Davide Sanclimenti, Luca Bish and Liam Llewellyn, was also stunned when she discovered her ex-boyfriend Jacques O’Neill had entered the villa earlier in the series.

It was reported on Tuesday night Billy Brown will soon become a new addition to the show for the girls to fight over, and he is already familiar with Gemma as the pair follow each other on Instagram.

A source said: ‘Billy is a ladies man and he’s definitely going to bring some fireworks into the villa.

‘He knows what he wants and isn’t shy about going after someone he fancies – whether they are in a couple or not.’

It is unclear when Billy will enter the villa and whether he will be a new bombshell or appear in Casa Amor. 

Billy’s latest Instagram post shows he is already not too far from the Majorcan villa as he is currently living it up in Ibiza.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Love Island for comment.

Since the series began earlier this month, many Love Island fans have taken to social media to question whether the series has turned into ‘The Gemma Show,’ due to her famous family connections.

It was also previously reported that another of Gemma’s former flames, footballer Cameron Green, was set to enter the villa, though a spokesperson denied that there was any romantic connection between them.

A spokesperson for Gemma told MailOnline: ‘Gemma and Cameron have never dated. They are just friends.’

Cameron has reportedly spent time at the Owen family home and has appeared in a promotional post on Gemma’s sportsman father Michael’s Instagram page.

Sunday’s show saw Gemma recouple with Davide after Luca was stolen by newcomer Danica Taylor.

Viewers have questioned the brunette’s feelings for the fishmonger, though her family have insisted that the pair have a ‘genuine connection.’

Whilst Luca was adamant that he didn’t want to get to know the dancer and said he was ‘putting all his eggs in one basket’ for Gemma, fans flocked to Twitter to share their reactions.
