Gemma Owen hopes 'Love Island' will set her on her path to becoming a billionaire like Kylie Jenner.

The 19-year-old dressage competitor plans to showcase her own OG Beachwear line when she's in the villa and wants her time on the reality show to help boost her career in order to follow in the footsteps of her idols, the Kardashian family.

She told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "I would love to carry on with my business which I have just set up. It’s called OG Beachwear. I will be wearing a few bits in the villa, it’s a small collection at the moment.

“I really like the Kardashians, I watch them on telly and I follow them on social media.

“I think they are all good, powerful business women, what they have made for themselves is really inspiring, I’m a massive fan. Who wouldn’t like to be a billionaire like Kylie?”

Gemma - whose father is former football star Michael Owen - has been approached a number of times to take part in the dating show but turned them down because the timing wasn't right for her riding career.

However, after a disappointing start to the season, she decided to embrace the challenge.

She said: "The summer months are the most important months for my dressage, so the thought of leaving that for two months was not an option and riding takes my priority.

“But my season didn’t get off to a great start this year, so I thought this season will be the best.”

Gemma's dad recently admitted having his daughter sign up for 'Love Island' was "probably a father's worst nightmare" but insisted he and his wife Louise would be supporting the teenager.

He said: “I have no doubts that she will make us all proud. It’s probably a father’s worst nightmare, but whatever she wants to do you’ve got to be supportive. I think old, grumpy men like me will always have an opinion on it because I don’t watch it and you just hear the snippets. But she assures me it’s not as bad as I think.

“So, we’ll give it a watch and I hope she enjoys herself.”
