This is adorable.

Love Island’s Gabby Allen has secretly been paying tribute to her late father during her time in the Love Island villa. 

Gabby’s father sadly passed away four years ago from brain cancer and she’s been remembering him by wearing his sunglasses most days in the villa as a ‘good luck charm’.

However, she has been keeping her grief secret from all islanders, including her new boyfriend Marcel Somerville. 

Speaking of her father’s death, an insider revealed that “it was an extremely quick diagnosis, the family had very little notice. Her dad was her best friend, she has an incredible family, her mother and brother and Gabby have supported each other immensely the past few years”. 

Gabby’s personal Instagram page is also being updated whilst she’s in the villa and a recent post seems to allude to her sunglasses tribute. 

Gabby's currently separated from her boyfriend, Marcel, who is off in the other villa with the lads and the 5 new girls...
