Love Island star Gemma Owen could be in for a shock after bombshell Jay Younger enters the villa.

The hit ITV2 show is into its second week and 19-year-old Gemma has managed to keep her famous dad, football legend Michael Owen, a well-kept secret.

However, her secret could be exposed thanks to new arrival Jay younger, 28, as the two have something particular in common.

Former pro Michael played for Liverpool from 1996 to 2004 while Jay's grandfather – Tommy Younger, played for the club from 1956 to 1959, meaning Michael may be well aware of the former goalkeeper.

Speaking before he entered the villa, the investment analyst revealed: “My grandad played for Liverpool and he was captain of Scotland back in the 1950s."

He added: "He was in the hall of fame for Liverpool and he was in the hall of fame for Hibernian F.C."

Gemma's famous family may not come as a shock however as many fans are convinced the islanders already know the identity of her dad after her ex Jacques stormed into the villa.

Prior to the show, Gemma and Jacques dated for eight months and the 23-year-old appeared to know the family well, asking after them and confessing he fancied Gemma's mum – Louise Bonsall.

Speculating about the possibility, one user wrote: "Surely Jacques tells everyone that Gemma's dad is Michael Owen #Loveisland."

"Jacques is gonna tell everyone Gemma’s dad is Michael Owen #Loveisland," another theorized.

While a third said: "I’m sure Jacques will say in a convo 'do you know who her dad is?' Them: 'who?' Jacques: 'What? She ain’t told you yet'. Them: 'No, who is it?' Here comes Luca 'Wait her surname is Owen, omggg its Michael Owen' #LoveIsland."

The dressage rider has been centre of attention since stepping foot in the villa, quickly moving away from original partner Liam to bombshell Davide Sanclimenti, 27, within days.

She was then drawn away from the self-certified Italian stallion and coupled up with cheeky chappie Luca Bish, 23.

The drama hasn't stopped there however as the 19-year-old is set to land herself in hot water during tonight's episode (June 14) after calling Luca by her ex-boyfriends name.

Love Island airs nightly on ITV2 and ITVHub at 9pm
