Gemma Owen and Davide Sanclimenti go on the first date of the new series of 'Love Island'.

The 19-year-old dressage rider - the daughter of retired England striker Michael Owen - and Italian hunk Davide, 27, get sent out of the villa for some one-on-one time after Davide chose to couple up with the pretty brunette, who was originally paired up with Welsh personal trainer Liam Llewellyn, 22.

Newcomer Davide, who was introduced to the villa on Monday night (06.06.22), was given 24 hours to pick which of the five girls he wanted to steal.

The dramatic recoupling saw Davide opt to couple with Gemma leaving Liam single.

Speaking in the Beach Hut ahead of her date with Davide, Gemma said: “Hopefully we can have another good chat and I can find out a bit more about him and have that good energy.”

Whilst on their date, on which they get to make lemonade, the talk quickly turned to marriage and kids.

Davide asked: “Do you want to get married? Have you ever thought about it?”

Gemma replied: “Yeah definitely. I’d like to get married and I want to have kids.”

Davide added: “How many?”

Gemma answered: “Like four!”

Davide later said: “I was sure about my decision. What about you?”

Gemma added: “With Liam I’ve told him that I’ll still have chats with him and get to know him a bit more. I also told him I have more of an initial attraction to you than I do for him. I do think you’re a nice genuine guy.”

Despite the recoupling, Liam hasn’t been disheartened and remains hopeful he still has a chance with Gemma.

Speaking at the fire pit with Gemma, he said: “You’re still at the top of my tree! I’ve got a good feeling about you. You are girlfriend material, the way you are and the way you carry yourself.”

Gemma added: “Me being in a couple with him hasn’t changed how I feel about you. I still want to chat to you. It’s still early days. But I can imagine it’s not a nice situation to be in.”

'Love Island' airs tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.

The dating reality show can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
