Much like her football star dad, Gemma has always been into sports, telling ITV: “I’ve competed for Great Britain in dressage since I was 11-years-old.

The young Islander also has her very own clothing business in the form of a bikini line called OG Beachwear, which advertises as ‘luxury quality swimwear, ethically made to last’ in its Instagram bio.
Gemma Owen’s dad is football icon and former Liverpool FC player Michael Owen.
He also played for England and won the prestigious Ballon d’Or award in 2001.
Gemma comes from a big family including her mum and three siblings.
You can follow Gemma Owen on Instagram @gemowen_1 where she already has a whopping follower count of 42.9K followers, which is sure to soar once she steps into the villa.
