Michael Owen jets off on holiday despite having not yet met Gemma's Love Island partner Luca Bish


He chose not to visit the Love Island villa for the Meet the Parents episode this series, when her mother Louise flew to Majorca to see her daughter.

And on Tuesday, Michael Owen, 42, jetted off on holiday despite having not yet met daughter Gemma Owen’s Love Island partner Luca Bish, after the pair admitted that they’re still not official.

The famous footballer took to his Instagram where he shared a smiley shot of himself looking happy and tanned, and wrote alongside: ‘A few days of sun.’

While Michael hasn’t met Luca, he did reunite with daughter Gemma over the weekend following her Love Island stint, with a party at their Chester mansion. 

On Monday, Gemma and Luca revealed they have still to make their relationship official – despite being coupled up on the show for almost two months. 

And since then, the pair have been spending time apart, with the brunette beauty in Manchester for business deals, while the Brighton-based fishmonger has been down south. 

An inside source exclusively told MailOnline that Gemma was meeting with PLT CEO Umar Kamani to negotiate up to a £1million deal. 

Michael’s holiday abroad comes after Luca revealed during the Love Island reunion special, that he’d at least finally spoken to Gemma’s famous footballer father.

Quizzing Luca on whether he’d spoken to Michael Owen since leaving the Love Island villa last week, host Laura Whitmore asked the fishmonger: ‘I know you’ve met her mum, have you met her dad yet?’  

Luca replied: ‘Not yet, we’ve had a little FaceTime together and that’s it.’

Referencing the comparisons between Luca and Michael, highlighted by Gemma’s mother Louise during the Meet the Parents instalment last month, Laura joked: ‘Was it like looking at yourself in the future?’

Burying her face in her hands, Gemma mumbled: ‘Oh, God!’, before looking up and saying: ‘I can’t see it at all, you know? And it actually makes me feel a little bit sick thinking about it as well.’

Laura laughed: ‘They say that we all have that complex where you go for one of your parents!’

The couple sparked speculation things were tense between them when Gemma’s social media account handlers did not post any reference to Luca after the Love Island final.

Following Gemma and Luca’s second-place finish, Luca’s family were quick to congratulate the couple, posting a snap of them together with a gushing caption.

It read: ‘Thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts for all of the support you’ve shown this gorgeous couple. So excited to continue watching your journey from the outside. You really did win by finding each other.’

This was in stark contrast to Gemma’s Instagram, which noticeably only posted solo snaps of the brunette beauty in the lead-up and following the final, with beau Luca noticeably absent.  

Notice something? While each of the Love Island's female finalists' social media accounts featured a tribute to their couple, Gemma's was simply a solo snap

Sharing a solo snap of Gemma clad in a nude ruched gown, her loved ones penned the caption: ‘Words can’t describe how proud we all are of Gemma.’

‘She has shown the nation how mature, honest and classy she truly is. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for all the love and support…Gemma is going to be SO overwhelmed.

‘We are passing this back to Gemma now… We have loved running her account and being part of her @loveisland journey. We can’t wait for what the future holds.’

Eagle-eyed fans at home were quick to notice this, and took to Twitter to suggest that Gemma’s family were not overly fond of Luca and that they were doing ‘damage control’ to protect Gemma’s brand.
