Michael Owen is ‘barely watching Love Island’ as he reveals what he really thinks of daughter Gemma being in the villa | The SunJuly 5, 2022
MICHAEL Owen is "barely watching" Love Island according to pals despite his daughter Gemma starring on the show.
Gemma, 19, is one of the stand-out Love Island stars this year but someone close to football legend Michael, 42, has claimed he just wants her home.
A source said: "To be honest Michael will just be relieved when Gemma's home.
"He's massively proud of her and knows she has a sensible head on her shoulders.
"But he knows she is incredibly ambitious which has left him a bit anxious that doesn't lead to her doing stuff to win the show that she might otherwise normally have stepped back from."
The insider added to the MailOnline: "Michael has barely watched the show as he has been quite busy over the past few weeks but his wife Louise keeps him up to date with what's going on."
