Michael Owen Responds To Rumors He’ll Be Entering Love Island Villa


Michael Owen has responded to rumors about entering the villa for the ‘Meet the Parents’ episode.

Fans of the show were hoping to see the former professional footballer in the Spanish villa to see his daughter Gemma Owen, who is coupled up with Luca Bish.

Owen has confirmed that he will not be attending and that his wife Louise Owen will in fact be flying off to Mallorca if their 19-year-old makes it to the final week.

The ITV2 show regularly has a ‘Meet the Parents’ episode where a family member is brought out to the villa to catch up with their loved one and meet their new partner.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the 42-year-old said:

“My wife will do that duty. I’ll represent the horses and she’ll represent the daughter.”

“I don’t know what I’ll get from Box To Box. But I know what I’m going to get from my daughter.”

“I’ve fathered her for 19 years so I’m pretty sure what I’m going to get from her.”

It has previously been noted that the footballer has been “barely watching” the ITV show over anxiety about how his 19-year-old would behave on TV.
