"He adores Gemma and knows that he has to impress,” they added.

"They flew out from Gatwick this morning to spend time with him and Gemma’s mum at their private villa in Quinta Do Lago."

The insider continued: “Luca is a nice lad and Gemma has no doubt he will win him over but of course it is nerve wracking.”

Luca went on to share a snap of himself lounging by the pool at the villa as he promoted Gemma’s swimwear line OG Beachwear.

Luca then says in the video: “We're going for an evening stroll.... with me girlfriend...PSYCH!” while Gemma can be seen grinning behind him.

This comes just a few short weeks after Luca met Gemma’s mum Louise when she visited the villa during the Love Island final week.
