Gemma Owen, 19, slammed by Love Island viewers for calling herself 'old-fashioned' | The Sun

LOVE Island star Gemma Owen has been slammed by viewers after calling herself "old-fashioned" – despite being 19.

The daughter of footballer Michael Owen sat down with Italian stallion Davide Sanclimente for a chat on Tuesday night.

Gemma, 19, was paired up with Welsh personal trainer Liam Llewellyn in the first episode when the public were allowed to play Cupid.

But tense scenes tonight saw newcomer Davide, 27, pick which of the five girls he wanted to steal – putting one of the boys at risk.

The Italian hunk, originally from Rome, Italy, who now lives in Manchester, was introduced to the Love Island cast last night.

It was dramatically revealed that Davide would have just 24 hours to figure out which of the girls he wanted to couple up with.
