Gemma Owen is plotting on moving into her own love pad when she leaves the Love Island
Gemma Owen plans to move to her own love path when she leaves the Love Island Villa, Mail Online can reveal.
The teen currently lives with soccer dad Michael, mom Louise and her siblings in a luxury pad in North Wales.
But friends of the 19-year-old say she was house-hunting before going to the show and that her time on the ITV show will have increased her desire to fly the nest.

Protective dad Michael needn’t worry too much though, as we can reveal that she’s most excited about a place in Chester, where Dad already has an apartment and they party regularly.
A source said: ‘Gemma will continue to house-hunt when she leaves the show, but there’s no chance she’ll bring in a man. She wants to spend some time alone before taking that step.
“Gemma is fiercely independent and also has plans to travel and promote her clothing line when Love Island is ready.”
Gemma lives with father, retired soccer star Michael Owen, mother Louise and her three siblings in North Wales.

Her family’s huge mansion sits in a village that couldn’t be further from the glitz of the Love Island villa.
According to friends, hardly anyone in the village watches the show – meaning Gemma can expect to be treated exactly the same when she returns.
Our source added: “[It’s] is a very quiet place where many of the villagers have retired. Most people who live there prefer Countryfile over Love Island. But that’s one of the reasons Gemma and her family love it there.”

In addition to a thriving career on TV and as an influencer, Gemma is also a talented rider and regularly participates in events.
Her father Michael, who has played for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Newcastle in a glittering career, also has a number of business interests, including horse racing and property development.
According to reports last month, producers would like to enroll Gemma in an At Home With The Owen’s style program.

As we revealed in June, before entering the Villa, Gemma, 19, had her business affairs in order by setting up a new media company – and mama made Louise a co-director.
It comes after Gemma told Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu in Monday’s episode to “keep her nose out of her business” and accused the Turkish actress of spreading rumors about her pairing with Luca.
Ekin-Su, 27, had told Paige Thorne and Jacques O’Neill said they heard Gemma, 19, tell Dami Hope that her head could be turned away from Luca Bish, who she is linked to.
Michael Owen’s daughter was furious at her co-stars for Ekin-Su’s “d***head behavior” before confronting her face-to-face, saying, “Maybe you should keep your nose out of other people’s business and shut up.’
The revelation saw Luca admit to Gemma that he wants a future with her, but thinks they are “on different pages” in a tense conversation, wondering if they should stay together.
Clearing things in a confessional, she said: ‘IWhen someone comes in who is 100% my type, who I get along with better than Luca and who I’m more attracted to, I get to know them. Do I think that is likely? No.’
Ekin-Su kept her calm and said to the camera, “Why is it me again? How does everything come to me? Dami has an opinion. This is Dami’s quote, not me. I haven’t done anything wrong, but it’s so easy to blame me for this, isn’t it?’

Gemma pointed the record straight at Luca herself and pulled it aside to say, “You’ve probably heard most of it anyway. Dami read everyone’s minds.
“He said that if someone came in who was 100% for me and that I had a better chemistry with him than you, I’d be open to getting to know him.
“I didn’t say anything about it, Dami did the talking, I just disagreed and said ‘Whatever’ at the end.
Previously, Dami had tried to “read” Gemma’s mind and told her, “You’re happy with Luca now. I feel like it would take a lot of time to turn your head, but there’s a small chance it probably could if someone actually came in, that was 100% you.
Eek: Ekin-Su, 27, had told Paige Thorne and Jacques O’Neill that she heard Gemma, 19, tell Dami Hope that her head could be turned away from Luca Bish, with whom she is linked
“I have a feeling that’s where the confusion would come for you, because we’re not here to play games. I have a feeling you’re still open in a way, probably more open than Luca.’
Gemma confessed: “Yeah, that was pretty impressive. I don’t think you’re that far off.’
When Ekin-Su heard and told her fellow islanders, Gemma approached her and said, “You started this, you made drama about nothing! You had no right to say that and knew it would cause s***.’
Later, Luca admitted to Gemma that he wants a future with her but “don’t want to get hurt” in a tense conversation, wondering if they should stay together.
To sum it up: During a confessional clearing, she said, “When someone comes in who is 100% my type, who I get on better than Luca and am more attracted to, I get to know them. Do I think that is likely? No’
He said to her, “My head wouldn’t turn, so I feel like I love you more than I love me. We are on different pages. I want a future with you, I’m obsessed with you. I don’t want to get hurt and I don’t care who walks through the door.’
Gemma replied, “Okay and my head is with you, but I don’t want to say 100% that there won’t be anyone I’m closer to because I don’t know.”
When he started talking, she said abruptly, “Let me speak. You might as well ask me to be your damn girlfriend.”
Finally he could say, “Until today I couldn’t be happier with you.”
In the journal room, Gemma said, “I think it was a little frosty last night. You said, “We’re okay,” but it’s still a little weird.”
Explaining: She added: ‘He said if someone came in who was 100% for me and I had a better chemistry with him than you, I’d be open to get to know him’
