Gemma On Love Island
The 19-year-old daughter of former England striker Michael Owen entered the villa last week and has already turned a few heads. She entered the villa to find love and enjoy her summer.
She said, “I was seeing someone and then that didn’t work out so I thought, ‘Why not?’”
Gemma coupled up with Davide Sanclimenti, an Italian stallion who is eight years her senior at 27.
The duo kissed during a challenge in which the dressage champion was challenged to kiss the “boy she fancied the most”, prompting 167 people to protest to TV watchdog Ofcom about their age gap.
Last week, the pair addressed the near-decade discrepancy, with both parties determining they were fine with it, amidst mounting online skepticism over the age-gap romance.
However, their relationship ended when Davide was paired with bombshell Ekin-Su Cülcülolu and Gemma was seduced by fishmonger Luca Bish.
Another Age Gap Drama
Gemma, 19, was taken aback when her former flame, rugby player Jacques, 23, arrived at the villa as the newest bombshell on Sunday night. She claimed, they dated for a few months before calling it quits a year and a half ago.
This news did not go unnoticed by spectators, who rushed to Twitter to express their displeasure. According to viewers, she would have been 16 when they first met, while Jacques would have been 20.
Viewers were outraged by the inappropriate age gap promoted on-air and complained to Ofcom.
According to MailOnline, Ofcom has indicated that they would not examine the concerns.
