Hollyoaks Owen Warner makes red carpet debut with Jason Donovans daughter Jemma

Hollyoaks star Owen Warner delighted fans on Saturday as his made his red carpet debut alongside his girlfriend Jemma Donovan.

The loved up duo looked sensational as they walked the carpet together at the British Soap Awards 2023, two months after confirming their romance on social media.

Dressed in a stylish deep red velvet tuxedo, Owen, 23, couldn’t hide his smile as he posed with his arm around Jemma, also 23, who herself had opted for a tomato red gown that perfectly showcased her slim figure.

In a number of snaps taken at the event, the happy duo couldn’t stop smiling as they soaked in their surroundings, with the young lovers clearly in their element at the high profile bash.

The couple first went public with their romance back in April, when the I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here runner up finally confirmed that he was in a relationship with Jemma Donovan, the daughter of Especially For You singer Jason Donovan.

The duo had originally intended to keep their romance away from the spotlight, but fans became suspicious of a brewing romance after the actor joined Jemma and her family on holiday in Italy.

The duo looked cosy in pictures posted on Instagram and Owen was also seen getting to know Jemma’s mum Angie and her siblings, Zac and Molly.

Following a tense grilling from fans, Owen shared a fresh batch of updates from the trip that made it clear they’re more than friends.

In one sweet video the pair could be seen hugging as they enjoy a beautiful view before Owen then pranks his girlfriend by getting down on one knee and pretending to propose – something which left Jemma in stitches.

He captioned the clip: “She’s still not forgiven me for that one.”

However all teasing aside, the post also featured a sweet selfie of the couple together, something which confirmed their relationship to fans once and for all.

While many fans will no doubt be aware of Owen’s soap career, and of course be familiar with Jemma’s dad’s roots in Aussie soap Neighbours, Jemma herself is also an actress.

The star first made her acting debut at 12 years old before following in her dad’s footsteps to play the role of Harlow Robinson in Neighbours.

In January 2023 she went on to join the cast of Hollyoaks as Rayne Royce and it was here that she met Owen, who plays Romeo Nightingale in the Chester-based soap.

Addressing the couple’s vacation with Jemma’s family, a source told The Sun earlier this year : "Owen seems to have gotten the Donovan family seal of approval after they started following him on Instagram ahead of the trip."

Prior to hooking up with Jemma, Owen’s most notable relationship was with make-up artist Lana Jenkins, who went on to find fame on this year’s Love Island.

The British Soap Awards will broadcast to the public on Tuesday 6th June at 8pm on ITV1.
