Love Island’s Luca Bish has finally been introduced to Gemma’s dad Michael Owen just weeks after meeting her mum Louise in the villa.
The 23-year-old fishmonger jetted off to Portugal with Gemma as they visited her family’s private villa in Algarve during the pair’s first holiday since leaving the villa.
After weeks of anticipation leading up to the big family meeting, Luca was said to be ‘nervous’ about meeting the former England football star.
A source told this tabloid: "Luca has been nervous about meeting Michael which is, of course, totally natural."
"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.
He later shared a video on his Instagram Story where he and Gemma were heading out together as he playfully captioned it: “Mission 'ask Gem to be my girlfriend' is in motion,” seemingly hinting that things went well after meeting the former Liverpool player.
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.
