Love Island's Gemma Owen says she doesn't want to be known as 'Michael's daughter' as fans get first-look at Islanders

LOVE Island's Gemma Owen has insisted she doesn't want to be known as "Michael's daughter" as she shows off her talents.

Gemma is a 19-year-old Team GB dressage champion, who owns a swimwear company.

And in a first-look at the Islanders in a new video, Gemma is seen in action as she rides a beautiful black horse.

Wearing a white shirt, Gemma rides down a bridleway back to the stable and dismounts.

As she steps off she gives viewers a wink and removes her helmet.

It's the latest bit of footage of the islanders who are preparing to go into the Love Island villa.

Love Island’s Gemma Owen says footballer dad Michael ‘isn’t happy’ about show

Gemma is the eldest of former England and Liverpool football player Michael Owen and childhood sweetheart Louise Bonsall's four children.

But in a video opening up about herself, Gemma said: “You want to have your own goals, you don’t wanna be known just as the daughter of someone.”

Football legend Michael isn't doing cartwheels about his daughter joining the latest series of the reality show.

She told MailOnline: "I still wouldn't say that my dad is buzzing about me doing Love Island.

"He's very supportive in whatever I decide to do. He didn't have a massive tantrum or anything like that. He was pretty chilled, he trusts me not to do anything to embarrass him. He took it quite well."

Gemma is an international dressage rider and represented Great Britain at the European Championships in Oliva in July 2021.

The young star launched her swimwear company – OG Beachwear – during the first coronavirus lockdown back in 2020.

See her in the first episode of Love Island 2022 on June 6.
