Fans hope Michael Owens daughter "wont be as boring as her dad" on Love Island

Fans have joked they hope Gemma Owen isn't as boring as her dad and England footballing icon Michael Owen after she was confirmed on the next series of Love Island.

Gemma was confirmed as a contestant for the eighth season of the hit ITV2 show on Monday morning. When quizzed on why she was entering the villa, Gemma said: "I am open to finding love, I’m wanting to have a really fun summer.

"I was seeing someone, and when that didn’t work out, I thought: 'Why not'?" However, fans of the hit reality TV show were all quick to make the same joke after the announcement of her involvement.

One fan tweeted: "I hope she’s not as boring as her dad!"

"Even if she’s evicted first, her dad will insist she’s the best Love Island contestant in the Europe and deserved to win," a second joked. A third added: "If she’s anything like her dad it’s going to be hard to watch, dull personality like watching paint dry."

A fourth joked: "Hopefully she’s not boring like him."
