I was on Love Island this year and there’s a big secret about the Beach Hut that nobody knows | The Sun

LOVE Island's Luca Bish has spoken out in a no-holds-barred interview where he described how TV bosses tried to keep him from Gemma Owen.

However, among the revelations was the fact the famous villa contains not one but two Beach Hut 'diary' rooms.

The double rooms are available so producers can talk to more than one Love Island star at a time.

But of course viewers can't tell which is which, as they look exactly the same.

Luca explained that he got summoned to the second of the pair by the 'voice of God' – the PA system that operates in the villa – after trying to talk to Gemma.

He explained producers told him: "Luca to Beach Hut 2" and warned him to stop chatting her up.

The star, 23, explained on Jamie Laing's Private Parts podcast what he was told by TV bosses.

He said: "From the start they were like: 'Tasha, Paige. Focus on them. Gemma's having a thing with Davide and Liam.'

"I was like: 'Yeah but the public put me with Paige and Tasha pulled me for a chat. As much as they're both lovely, the one person I actually want to chat to is Gemma.

"On the second night or something like that I said I want to pull Gemma and they were like: 'No, you're not allowed.'

"They were like: 'Davide's come in, he's picked Gemma, he needs to let them see what happens.' Obviously a storyline there.

"I was like: no no no. I'm going to try again. So I pulled her for a chat and they have the Voice of God.

"We sat down and she said: 'This is overdue' because you know when you both feel like. It was like: 'Luca to Beach Hut 2 please.'

"I was like: 'Ah.' They were like: 'No no no, you're not allowed yet. We're doing this for you, not to look like a player.'"

He added: "I was like: 'I'm not looking like a player. I'm on Love Island!'"

Of course, Luca did manage to talk to Gemma in the end after Davide moved on to Ekin-Su.

In the end Gemma and Luca made the final as a couple – as did Davide and Ekin, who went on to win the 2022 series.

Elsewhere in the interview he described the moment he met Michael Owen, but said he wasn't all that awed by him – because he wasn't even born when he was a football superstar.

He said: "It's not like Cristiano Ronaldo – I genuinely have not watched this guy play football."

He said: "When we came back we obviously saw them at the airport, her mum and brother and sisters.

"We got on really well and went back to a hotel and they were staying there as well.

"And then it was like 'Right, do you want to come to Portugal with us?' I was like: 'Jeez, OK. Yeah sure.'"

But he added that he's never even see Michael play – because he's too young.

He said: "The thing is, he was good when I wasn't good, or when I'd just got born so I actually don't have a Scooby about Michael Owen.

"I think maybe I had a Match Attax of him one day but that's as far as it goes – I've never really watched.

"You know who Michael Owen is, you'd be naïve not to, but he's not like a Rio Ferdinand for me – something just in my era but retired.

"I don't think I watched a Michael Owen game."

He also insisted he wasn't aware who Gemma's dad when they first met in the villa.

Luca said: "No I didn't know her dad at the beginning but I tell you what, if anyone brought her dad up in that villa she did not like it.

"She's her own person and she doesn't want to be: 'Oh,you're Michael Owen's daughter.' She wants it to be: 'Oh, that's Gemma's dad.'"
