Here's your need-to-know on her.

Who is Gemma Owen? What's her age and job?

Gemma, 19, is an International Dressage Rider and Business Owner from Chester.

Speaking about her decision to go on Love Island before she entered the villa, she said: "I am open to finding love, I’m wanting to have a really fun summer. I was seeing someone and then that didn’t work out so I thought, 'Why not?'"

Is Gemma related to Michael Owen?

Gemma is the daughter of footballer Michael Owen.

She said that her love of sport rungs in her family, adding: "My dad was a professional football player. I’ve competed for Great Britain in dressage since I was 11-years-old.

"I’ve travelled all across Europe competing in big arenas in big competitions. I would say I’m very competitive. [When it comes to relationships] I will always go for what I want.

"But at the same time, I’m not going to mess up something for someone who is in a proper relationship or get in the way of a couple if they have a genuine connection. I wouldn’t do anything to another girl that I wouldn’t be happy with them doing to me."

Who is Gemma coupled up with?

Gemma is coupled up with Luca Bish, who she got close to during the early episodes of the show.

The couple were briefly tested when new girl Danica stole Luca during a dramatic recoupling, but they have since got back together.
