Love Island star Gemma Owen has been hit with claims she's pretending to like Luca – but her family have now responded.

Michael Owen's daughter was coupled up with fishmonger Luca Bish in the villa before bombshell Danica Taylor swooped in to couple up with him on Sunday night (June 19).

Despite this, smitten Luca insisted he only has eyes for Gemma and squashed any chances of a spark with Danica – much to her dismay.

The fan seemed to question her intentions as they asked: "Do you think she's being her true self with Luca?"

Gemma's account handlers replied: "Gemma is always 100% her true self. Whether it's in Love Island or at home.

Other fans have raised concerns over Luca's behaviour towards Gemma – with one saying: "Luca is giving controlling vibes."

When Danica chose to couple with Luca, the fishmonger was gutted and wasted no time in planting a reassuring kiss on Gemma.

It set up a rather awkward date between Luca and Danica, who seemed frustrated that Luca has cut off all potential for a romance with her.

Luca and Gemma have still enjoyed some PDA moments in the villa, but Gemma has still opted against sleeping with Luca at night.

She chose to couple up with Davide for a second time in a bid to keep him in the villa – but it's only friendship this time.
