Love Island’s Gemma finally talks about dad Michael Owen and shares Beckhams link

Love Island's Gemma Owen finally spoke about her famous father Michael Owen on Thursday's episode after weeks of keeping his identity under wraps.

The Islander, 19, also shared her link to the Beckham family, explaining that she went to nursery with Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17.

During the episode, Antigoni Buxton asked: "Sorry, excuse me if I'm being ignorant, but is your dad like very very well-known? He played for England, right?" to which Gemma replied: "Yeah."

With Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu asking: "Do you like David Beckham's sons?" to which Gemma responded: "Well, I went to nursery with his sons, yeah."

The villa were left stunned at the discovery as they asked: "Did you?" with Gemma adding: "Yeah!"

It's likely that Gemma and the Beckham children crossed paths at nursery when her father played for Real Madrid between 2004 to 2005, David was also at the club between 2003 to 2007.

However, despite the revelation, it appears that the Islanders already knew about Gemma's famous father Michael, according to Ikenna Ekwonna.

The dumped Islander, 23, appeared on Sunday's Aftersun where he told host Laura Whitmore that the contestants were aware of her dad from the "second or third day".

He recalled: "We didn't really know until the second or third day but I don't think the girls knew the guys knew."
