Gemma is not the only one with a famous parent in the Love Island villa, with fans discovering that Liam also comes from sporting fame.
Among the islanders to have caught the viewers’ attention is Gemma, the 19-year-old daughter of England footballer Michael Owen.
While Gemma has not explicitly told her fellow contestants about her father, she has dropped a number of hints.
Fans have discovered, however, that Gemma’s former partner Liam also has a famous sports figure as a parent.
Liam’s father David Llewellyn is a former Wales international rugby union player. As per Metro, he played for Ebbw Vale, Newport and Neath.
He was also a member of the Wales team in the 1999 World Cup during which he scored a try and won four caps for the national team.
In Tuesday night’s episode (7 June), newcomer Davide chose to pair up with Gemma, leaving Liam single. Their coupling-up has raised eyebrows among viewers who have urged the show to impose a minimum age restriction, calling the eight-year age gap between Gemma and Davide as “mad”.
