LOVE Island fans have long suspected Luca Bish is well aware of the fact Gemma Owen has a famous dad.

Now they have seized on one former Islander's remarks that they were all told on day two or three as proof.

It was revealed on Love Island: Aftersun that the Islanders were told in the first week

Luca was originally paired with Paige Thorne but had a change of heart in the first week, becoming suddenly enamoured with Gemma.

Now Ikenna Ekwonna has revealed that was around the same time the villa learnt her dad is millionaire football legend Michael Owen, 42.

One fan tweeted: "So it’s confirmed they all know about Gemma’s dad from the beginning they just haven’t aired it..knew it.

"Makes you question how and why Luca got so intense."

Another posted: "They found out around the third day who Gemma’s dad was and that was when Luca started showing interest OHHHHHH."

A third wrote: "Luca knowing that Gemma is Michael Owens daughter makes so much sense.

"His obsession and interest in her happened AFTER the boys found out who her dad was on day 3."

The revelation explained why sport-mad Luca was asking about her dad early on as they sat up on the terrace.

She replied that she had no doubt he would "get on well" with her father, who she said also liked sports - though she didn't name him on air.

One viewer wrote at the time, in reference to the Owen family home: "Luca obviously knows who Gemma's dad is. He's trying to hang up his fish boots and chill in the mansion."

Ikenna explained when asked on Aftersun if it was common knowledge who Gemma's dad was: "We didn’t really know until like the second or third day.

"I don’t think the girls knew, like the guys knew."

Afia Tonkmor, the first Islander to be dumped, revealed that people knew but never spoke about the England football legend.

When asked by a fan whether the Islanders were aware, she said: "If people do know, I did know before I went in because I watched her VT.

"But if people do know, they don’t care. Nobody really cares."
