Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips says Luca ‘100 percent’ knows who Gemma’s famous dad isJune 20, 2022
Love Island’s Shaughna Phillips has shared her opinions on this year’s series, with the star saying she’s ‘100 percent’ sure that Luca Bish knows who Gemma Owen’s famous dad is.
Gemma and Luca were hit with a surprising turn in their time in the villa on Sunday evening when new Islander Danica Taylor decided to couple up with Luca, therefore breaking up his current coupling with Gemma.
This left Gemma needing to pick a new boy to couple up with, leaving Luca looking less than thrilled when she decided to go back to her former flame Davide Sanclimenti.
Gemma, who is the daughter of famed footballer Michael Owen, hasn’t spoken openly about her famous dad on screen yet, although she’s previously dropped some heavy hints when speaking about her family’s love of sport.
Now former Islander Shaughna, 28, who appeared on the series in 2020, has opened up on what she thinks of the couple, saying she’s sure that fishmonger Luca knows about Gemma’s famous father.

Speaking to OK! on Instagram live, Shaughna responded to a fan who asked: “Do you think Luca knows who Gemma’s dad is?”
Without hesitating, the star replied: “100 percent! I think [Gemma’s ex] Jacques probably told him. And whether it just happened at a particular time where it couldn’t be recorded or something like that, and that’s why we didn’t see it on telly… But a hundred percent [he knows].
“And she’s also stopped dropping hints about how much she loves football and this, that and the other…I had the worst anxiety. And do you remember that conversation when [Liam] was like, oh I studied strength and conditioning, I was like ‘this is it!’ And then it wasn’t and I was like ‘please someone ask her!’”.
Sunday’s shock recoupling saw Gemma choose to couple up with Davide Sanclimenti for the second time this series, but Luca declared the forced split would only “make [him and Gemma] stronger.”
However some fans were not convinced, with many questioning why he was so emotionally involved so soon – and some accusing him of having already hatched a “game plan”.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “Luca definitely knows who Gemma’s dad is.”
While another added: “Luca has worked out who Gemma’s dad is and he wants to be the next Hack Finch, that’s his game plan calling it now!”
A third wrote: “Luca definitely knows who Gemma’s dad is. He’s clinging on way too much for a girl that doesn’t give him much in return.”
The brutal recoupling, which saw Remi evicted from the Island, left Luca less than impressed.As Davide crossed the firepit area to hug Gemma, the camera zoomed in on Luca, who could be seen looking pretty uncomfortable at the new coupling– and sitting a considerable distance away from his new partner Danica.
However, despite both having new partners Gemma and Luca later crept off to the side to discuss their feelings, announcing they would still like to give their relationship a go.
Luca told Gemma he only saw 21 year old Danica as more of a friend and that he only had eyes for her.
Earlier in the episode, Danica gathered everyone around the firepit and explained her reasoning for choosing her match, before she revealed she’d picked Luca.
She explained: “I haven't even been here twenty-four hours so this is a really weird situation for me to be in. I’ve barely got to know any of you but you’re all lovely boys…
“I need to follow my heart and I can only go on what I see face value, and someone I feel is usually my type. I need to explore that unfortunately, so I’m going to have to just follow my heart on this one."
She continued: “The boy i want to couple up with is… Luca".
