Love Island’s Danica has finally found the right boy in the villa after weeks of trying to make a connection, but she turned to Gemma for reassurance about footballer stereotypes while asking her about her famous dad, Michael Owen.  She said: "I know there’s sometimes a bit of a stereotype. Is he the kind of guy, young footballers, go into the clubs… I do forget your dad is primetime."

Gemma replied: "[Jamie] knows he’s decent looking, he knows he can probably get girls… But it genuinely does depend on the type of person." Danica added" I don’t want to be naive… I feel stupid saying it, I do really like him," to which Gemma reassured her, saying: "That’s not stupid at all. If it clicks then it clicks."
