Love Islands Gemma not official with Luca after intense family meeting

Gemma Owen has confessed that her relationship with Love Island co-star Luca Bish still isn't official more than three weeks after the show ended.

The 19-year-old international dressage rider has insisted things are going well with the Brighton-based fishmonger but they have yet to put a label on their romance.

Gemma also believes that Luca feels "pressure" to make asking her to be his girlfriend a big gesture after they failed to make it official in the Villa.

The pair finished as runners up in the final on August 1, after deciding they wanted to wait until they had met each other's families before they become an official couple.

Luca, 23, has now met Gemma's famous dad, former England player Michael Owen, but their relationship is still not boyfriend and girlfriend.

Talking on her YouTube channel Gemma opened up about their relationship status.

She said: "I know a lot of you are like: 'What's going on with Luca?' Things are going really, really well.

"Since being out of the villa things have changed for the better – feelings have grown so much more, which is kind of obvious. But, I wasn't expecting it to be going how it is.

"There's a lot of questions on: 'Oh are you two official yet?' Whenever we do an interview that seems to be the most talked about topic."

She then elaborated: "We're not yet. I feel like there's been a bit of a build-up now, people are like: 'When is it gonna be? When is it gonna be?' I feel like he's got a bit of pressure on him like: 'S**t I need to make something good out of this'.

"But, it's definitely on the cards and I think it will definitely be really soon so really excited for that."

Gemma – who signed a six-figure deal with fashion outlet Pretty Little Thing earlier this week – then described how Luca met her dad for the first time on a family trip to Portugal.

She said: "We went to Portugal for four days and he met my dad and family friends and that was amazing.

"That was honestly so nice. For the first meeting, it was a quite intense environment… 'You're meeting my dad, let's do it on holiday'. But it couldn't have gone better. They seem to get on really well. It was all really good."
