Love Islands Ikenna insists they have known about Gemmas dad since second day

From the beginning of 2022's Love Island series, many fans have been wondering when Gemma Owen will spill the beans on who her legendary football father is.

If you don't know, the 19 year old is the eldest child of former footballer Michael Owen. Whilst many viewers have believed that the Islanders still don't know about her famous relation, former contestant Ikenna Ekwonna, 23, revealed that the Islanders were aware of her dad from the "second or third day".

Speaking on Love Island's Aftersun, Ikenna told 37 year old host Laura Whitmore: "'We didn't really know until the second or third day but I don't think the girls knew the guys knew."

Love Island has not revealed in the episodes that the Islanders are aware of who Gemma's father is.

Many fans took to Twitter to wonder if Luca was sticking by Gemma due to knowing that her dad is Michael Owen.

One person wrote: "So Ikenna just said the boys found out who Gemma's dad was around day three. This Luca brudda is a legend, he’s tryna do the madness to be Micheal Owens son-in-law."

A second wrote: "Suspicious if Luca is genuinely interested in Gemma now based on what Ikenna said in the aftersun…"

"Ikenna has confirmed that the boys knew about Gemma’s dad! Lmaoo we see you Luca #LoveIsland," another commented.

Another tweeted: "Also, Luca definitely playing Gemma to meet her dad cuz on aftersun, Ikenna said they found out who her dad was on day 3….which was around the same time Luca head turned from Paige to Gemma".

A fifth shared: "Ikenna revealing that all the boys knew who Gemma’s dad is! Luca now the maths is mathing and we see you #LoveIsland".

While a sixth added: "Wait, so Ikenna just said ‘they knew from day 3 that Gemma was Michael Owen's daughter. WAS THIS EVER SHOWN? #LoveIsland."

Despite Ikenna's reveal, former contestant Liam Llewelly appeared to be unaware of Gemma's dad when he was in the villa as he said: "I can't believe who that actually was. That's mad. I'm a Newcastle United fan. I actually have one of his tops when he came to the club!"

He added: '"That first night, we were chatting about football and her family. I was so close. I can't believe I didn't quite work it out."
