Love Island’s Luca swipes at Michael Owen as he’s excluded from family snap

Love Island star Luca Bish couldn't resist taking a cheeky dig at Gemma Owen’s footballer dad Michael Owen after he posted a family snap without him in it.

Luca, 23, jetted off to Portugal last week with his girlfriend Gemma, 19, where the fishmonger was finally able to meet the football legend.

However, Luca appeared to make a swipe at footy ace Michael after he uploaded a family snap of him, his wife Louise, and children Jessica, 12, Emily, 14, and James, 16.

Poking fun at Gemma’s absence, the dad-of-four captioned the post: "Family -1" alongside a flag of Portugal.

However, Luca cheekily pointed out there was more than one person missing by simply replying: " -2."

Gemma was also left fuming that she wasn't in the snap and commented: "I was there for 4 days and you wait til I leave to get a family picture."

And Love Island fans were swooning over Luca's cheeky jibe, with one writing: "@lucabish ain’t family till @gemowen_1 has a ring on it!".

Another added: "if only we all had your confidence in life", while a third chimed: "Calm down. You're not even her boyfriend".

A fourth added: "Safe to say the family must love him for him to be comfortable with this cheekiness."

Despite being left out of the family snap, Michael has given Luca the seal of approval by following him on Instagram.

A source previously told The Sun that fishmonger Luca was nervous about coming face-to-face with Gemma's dad for the first time.

The insider revealed: "Luca has been nervous about meeting Michael which is, of course, totally natural.

“He adores Gemma and knows that he has to impress.

“They flew out from Gatwick to spend time with him and Gemma’s mum at their private villa in Quinta Do Lago.

“Luca is a nice lad and Gemma has no doubt he will win him over but of course it is nerve wracking.”

Luca has already seemingly already impressed Gemma's mum Louise – revealing all about the seal of approval from Michael's childhood sweetheart in a recent Instagram Live with Gemma's ex-boyfriend Jacques.

When quizzed by his rugby player pal, who recently apologised following bullying claims, he joked: "Yeah mate, it's coming. I'm just waiting on written consent from her mum aren't I?"

Luca added: "Louise is lovely."

Despite finishing runners-up on the ITV2 show earlier this month, Luca and Gemma are still yet to make things official and refer to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend respectively.
