LOVE Island fans have claimed that they have spotted a sign that Michael Owen doesn’t approve of Luca Bish.
Eagle-eyed social media users noticed how the former football star STILL doesn’t follow his daughter Gemma Owen‘s boyfriend on Instagram after their exit from the villa together.
Fans think that Michael doesn’t like Gemma’s new beau
They think they have spotted a second snub from the footballer
Love Island fans saw Gemma, 19, and Luca, 23, be crowned runners-up on this year’s series of the ITV2 dating show on Monday night.
The couple exited the villa this week, and arrived back home to their waiting families in the UK – but Michael, 42, was nowhere to be seen.
It led fans to speculate that the former footballer didn’t approve of his eldest daughter’s boyfriend Luca, who has been at the heart of a number of “bullying” rows throughout the show.
Now, Love Island viewers think they have spotted another sign he disapproves – as Michael doesn’t follow Luca on social media.
Love Island’s Luca ‘FINALLY admits he’s ‘fuming’ over final result'
The ex Liverpool player took to his Instagram grid to post a new snap, showing him smiling in a promotional advert.
But instead of fans flooded the comments section to ask Michael as to why he still hadn’t followed Luca back on Instagram – as he still failed to show on his ‘following’ list.
“Don’t even acknowledge Luca,” one Love Island fan wrote as they signalled to others to look, as a second chimed in: “Not a fan?”
It comes after fans felt Michael was dropping a HUGE hint he doesn’t approve of Luca – as he didn’t show up at the airport this week.
Islander Gemma was greeted by her mum Louise and her siblings as she arrived at the airport, but there was no sign of Michael.
The airport swerve comes as another hint that the footballer pro isn’t a fan of Gemma’s man Luca Bish.
Michael also swerved parent’s day in the villa, and instead Gemma’s mum went in with a friend to meet Luca for the first time.
This left fans on social media believing that Michael isn’t a fan of the fishmonger, with Luca disappointed not to meet the footballer.
Gemma’s mum, Louise Bonsall, 41 and friend Sarah jetted to Majorca to visit the dressage champ in the Love Island villa.
Gemma was clearly excited to see the pair and teared up as she put her hands over her mouth and ran towards them.
But when the camera cut to Luca he turned away in disgust and put his sunglasses back on as he appeared disappointed.
Fans couldn’t help but notice Luca’s reaction when he realised he would not be meeting the champion footballer.
HEAVEN OR HELL?
I asked for a cute angel wings tattoo but was horrified by what I got
“Lucas’ face when he realised Michael Owen wasn’t coming in,” one fan commented with a laughing emoji on Twitter.
Another added: “I said exactly the same, his face was a picture.”
