Michael Owen has joked about being missed out of an adorable clip his daughter Gemma posted as she returned home from the Love Island villa to her beloved pets.
Gemma and Luca Bish came runners-up to Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Culculoglu in the Love Island final on Sunday, and since then all the islanders have returned back home ahead of the reunion episode, which is set to air tomorrow.
Since her return, 19-year-old Gemma has promised to keep fans updated with her journey, while Luca shared his first post saying ‘Love Island was the best and also most challenging experience all rolled into one for me.’
The pair were spotted cuddling up on their way to filming the reunion earlier this week, although not long after, Luca claimed she ‘had the hump’ as they left the reunion after-party.
Now, it seems Luca has returned home to Brighton while Gemma is back home with her family, including her pets.

Taking to Instagram to share a reel, captioned ‘Reunited with my boys’, Gemma was filmed walking back into her house, which had a Love Island themed balloon arch put up inside, and cuddling up to her dogs and her horse.

But one boy wasn’t too pleased to be missing from the adorable video.
In the comments, ex-footballing star Michael teased: ‘You missed me off the clip’.

Luca and Michael have yet to meet, as the football pundit didn’t appear on the highly-anticipated ‘meet the parents’ episode.
However, Gemma’s dad did share his pride for his eldest daughter after the dressage-rider and fishmonger placed second in the final.
While former professional footballer Michael has refrained from speaking out too much about his 19-year-old daughter’s involvement on the show, after the finale wrapped up, he shared a message dedicated to her on social media.

Sharing a photo of them sitting together in a restaurant, he wrote: ‘She’s done us proud.’
Michael, 42, didn’t join his wife Louise Bonsall when she went into the villa for the meet-the-parents episode, but she did tell Gemma how proud he was then too.
