Love Island Star Gemma Owen’s Mum Weighs In On Luca ‘Bullying’ Tasha
21 July 2022, 11:18
Gemma Owen’s mum has called out the Love Island boys’ behaviour towards Tasha Ghouri.
Luca Bish and Dami Hope especially have come under fire from viewers following their treatment of Tasha during several challenges, bringing her to tears afterwards.
During a game of ‘Snog, Marry, Pie’, Luca said he could ‘give a list as long as Adam [Collard]’ as his reason for pieing her, while Dami said his reason for the pie was ‘because she gets away with a lot of stuff.
Both insisted it was ‘just a game’ as Tasha was left visibly upset.

The boys both pulled the dancer for a chat later on in the show and apologised to her for their behaviour, which some viewers believe was prompted by producers.
Louise Owen has now weighed in on the situation, days before she’s set to meet Luca, who’s coupled up with her daughter Gemma, in the villa during the ‘meet the parents’ episode.
The wife of football legend Michael Owen took to Instagram to comment on the dancer’s video of Tasha asking Andrew to be her boyfriend, calling out ‘bullying’ behaviour - however, she didn’t mention any contestants’ names.
She wrote: “I hope Tasha is ok. I feel it’s close to bullying now which is so sad to see."

It didn’t take long for her comment to go viral, with many saying Luca may not be getting the seal of approval he was hoping for from Gemma’s mum.
Gemma previously said during a date with Luca that her mum’s seal of approval is critical to their relationship, telling him: “If she doesn't then we're screwed. If my mum don't like you it's a no."
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
