Love Islands Luca attends first solo red carpet without Gemma after finally meeting dad Michael

Love Island star Luca Bish made his first solo red carpet appearance without Gemma Owen as he attended the House of the Dragon premiere in Leicester Square on Monday.

The 23 year old’s outing comes after he reportedly met Gemma’s famous footballer dad Michael Owen for the first time.

The couple have been attached to the hip since leaving the villa as runners-up as they recently travelled to Portugal together, where Luca became acquainted with the Owen family.

Gemma, 19, decided to sit this event out though, leaving Luca to experience the premiere all by himself, which he certainly looked excited about.

The fishmonger beamed for the cameras on the red carpet and sported a casually stylish black outfit consisting of a T-shirt and trousers, a Gucci bomber jacket and black and white trainers.

Luca’s attendance at the House of the Dragon premiere marks his first appearance since returning home to the UK following his stay at the Owen family’s private villa in Quinta Do Lago, Portugal.

There is where the reality star is said to have met Gemma’s dad, ex England star Michael, 42.

Luca was thought to be “nervous” ahead of meeting the former sportsman, according to a source, as they told The Sun: "Luca has been nervous about meeting Michael which is, of course, totally natural.

"He adores Gemma and knows that he has to impress.”

They added: “Luca is a nice lad and Gemma has no doubt he will win him over, but of course it is nerve wracking.”

Luca’s red carpet attendance comes after he joked about being snubbed out of a photo of the Owen family taken on holiday in Portugal, which was posted by dad Michael.

In the snap, Michael can be seen with his wife Louise, and their three children — missing their fourth, Gemma, and partner Luca, who both had also been on the trip with family.

Poking fun at Gemma’s absence, Michael wrote: "Family Family -1PT ".

Making light of the situation Luca jokingly responded: " -2”, reminding the football star that he had forgotten to add him in the tally.

Gemma added in the comment section: “I was there for 4 days and you wait til I leave to get a family picture."

The dressage champion also got to meet Luca’s family in Brighton after returning home from their Portugal break this week.
