Love Island’s Gemma Owen ‘guilty’ as she kisses ‘Italian Stallion’ in first episode
Gemma Owen has admitted she felt ‘guilty’ after kissing a contestant on the first episode of Love Island.
Michael Owen’s daughter is on the eighth season of the popular dating show. The 19-year-old was paired with Liam Llelwyn as the public voted for the first pairings.
However, she had her head turned when 27-year-old Davide Sanclimenti entered the Mallorcan villa during tonight’s episode. Gemma confessed that Davide was her type and she was blown away by the islander, who was branded the Italian stud.

Gemma was mortified when asked to kiss the islander she wanted to share a bed with in tonight’s season premiere challenge. The Team GB dressage competitor kissed Davide but confessed she felt guilty as she spoke to the camera in the beach hut.
She said, “Oh my god, that was absolutely brutal. I felt a little guilty.” Viewers who followed the show on Twitter took to the social media platform and said the 19-year-old shouldn’t have been allowed on this season of the dating show.
@Nasrinakther_ said: “Gemma is young and immature – she really shouldn’t be on”
Shania posted: ‘Please stop allowing 19 year olds on dating shows I’m begging you’
Adrian commented, “She just turned 19! No, she shouldn’t be in the villa with guys 10 years older than her!!”
Vic tweeted: “I feel like someone not long 19 like Gemma is such a weird decision. She’s too young for that”
Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub
