Love Island fans ‘work out’ real reason Luca Bish dumped Paige Thorne for Gemma Owen

Love Island fans have shared their theory as to why Luca Bish switched from Paige Thorne to Gemma Owen in the first week of the hit ITV dating programme.

Luca, 23, was originally paired with the brunette beauty from Wales, 24, but soon had a change of heart when he suddenly became enamoured with the international dressage rider.

Now, viewers of the show have been left convinced they've figured out why events unfolded as they did and it all has to do with dumped Islander Ikenna Ekwonna's recent confession on Love Island: Aftersun.

After much confusion and speculation over whether the contestants are aware that Gemma's dad is none other than fames ex-footballer Michael Owen, 42, Ikenna confirmed that they've all known since around "the second or third day" in the villa.

Speaking to host Laura Whitmore, 37, the 23 year old pharmaceutical salesman said: "We didn't really know until the second or third day but I don't think the girls knew the guys knew."

"So it’s confirmed they all know about Gemma’s dad from the beginning they just haven’t aired it..knew it. Makes you question how and why Luca got so intense," one person wrote on Twitter.

Another shared: "They found out around the third day who Gemma’s dad was and that was when Luca started showing interest OHHHHHH."

A third shared: "So they all know that it’s Michael Owens daughter why has Luca never mentioned this or have they purposely avoided airing those scenes. Something to think about considering how clingy Luca is with Gemma. #loveisland," followed by a crying with laughter emoji.

While a fourth simply stated: "Luca is only with Gemma because he knows who her dad is #loveisland," followed by a shrugging emoji.

It comes after viewers recently theorised the TV producers have a "foot fetish" after showing scenes of Luca sucking on Gemma's toes were shown on Saturday night's show.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the incident, which showed Luca giving Gemma a foot massage before putting her toes in his mouth.

Fans were decidedly unimpressed by the scenes, with many of them reacting with disgust as they posted on social media.
