Michael Owen introduced as ‘father of Love Island’s Gemma Owen’ during England punditry

OHMYGOSSIP — Michael Owen faced jokes about his daughter’s ‘Love Island’ appearance when he appeared as a pundit for England’s match against Germany on Tuesday night (07.06.22).
The former Three Lions striker – whose 19-year-old daughter Gemma Owen is one of the Islanders on the ITV2 dating show this year – was part of the Channel 4 team covering the Nations League game at the Allianz Arena in Munich, and presenter Jules Breach couldn’t resist a quip at the ex-Liverpool star’s expense as she introduced the pundits.
She said: “Joining me hoping to see another famous win for England tonight in Munich, England and Arsenal midfield Jordan Nobbs, former England, West Ham and Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole and the father of Love Island’s Gemma Owen.”
Jules then asked Michael: “A big night for the Owens last night, Michael. How are you feeling?”
He responded: “I came all the way to Germany to try and avoid all that back home, but it has been brought up straight away!
“But I am feeling alright. This is taking my mind off it so don’t bring it back up.”
Michael previously admitted it was a “father’s worst nightmare” for his daughter to appear on the show, but insisted he was being “supportive”.
He said: “I have no doubts that she will make us all proud. It’s probably a father’s worst nightmare, but whatever she wants to do. You’ve got to be supportive.
“It’s been different without her in the house. I’ve got other kids and my wife, and it’s been quite tough because she’s had to switch her phone off and we’ve had no contact for a couple of weeks so that’s been the hard bit.
“I’ve heard a lot about it. I think old, grumpy men like me will always have an opinion on it because I don’t watch it and you just hear the snippets, but she assures me that it’s not as bad as I think. So, we’ll give it a watch and I hope she enjoys herself.”
International dressage rider Gemma – who coupled up with this year’s first ‘Love Island’ bombshell, Italian hunk Davide Sanclimenti, in last night’s show – recently admitted her dad was “not buzzing” about her taking part in the programme.
She said: “I still wouldn’t say he was buzzing about the fact. But he’s very supportive with whatever I decide to do.
“He didn’t have a massive tantrum or anything like that. It was pretty chilled. He sort of trusts me not to do anything and not to embarrass him or anything like that. So I guess he took it quite well.”
