Gemma isn’t the only one with a famous parent in the island of love Villa, with fans discovering that Liam also comes from sporting fame.
ITV’s hit reality dating show returned for an eighth season on Monday (6 June) with Gemma and Liam among the contestants to have entered the villa this year.
Among the islanders who have caught viewers’ attention is Gemma, the 19-year-old daughter of English footballer Michael Owen.
While Gemma hasn’t specifically told her fellow contestants about her father, she did drop a number of clues.
However, fans have found out that Gemma’s former partner Liam also has a famous athlete figure as a parent.
Liam’s father David Llewellyn is a former Welsh rugby union player. acc metrohe played for Ebbw Vale, Newport and Neath.
He was also a member of the Wales team at the 1999 World Cup where he scored one try and won four caps for the national team.
On Tuesday night’s (June 7) episode, newcomer Davide decided to partner up with Gemma and left Liam alone. Their connection has raised eyebrows from viewers who have called on the show to impose a minimum age restriction, calling the eight-year age gap between Gemma and Davide “insane”.
However, the two new bombshells – Ekin-Su and Afia – who enter the mansion in Wednesday night’s episode suggest Liam won’t stay single for long.
