Love Island’s Gemma Owen discussed marriage with Davide Sanclimenti during Wednesday’s show, mere hours after coupling up.
The 19-year-old – who is the daughter of football legend Michael Owen – went on her first date with self-styled Italian Stallion Davide, 27, after he chose her in a bombshell recoupling.
Despite admitting the date went well and she was ‘still inclined’ to Davide, Gemma confessed she’s still ‘open to chatting to’ Liam Llewellyn, with whom she’d been paired up during the episode’s launch.

While the Islanders were relaxing in the garden, Gemma received a text which read: ‘Gemma and Davide, it’s time for your first date. Please get ready to leave the Villa. #SimplyTheZest #FirstDateVibes’
Speaking in the Beach Hut ahead of her date with Davide, Gemma said: ‘Hopefully we can have another good chat and I can find out a bit more about him and have that good energy.’
The pair headed out of the Villa and arrived at a picturesque location for their date where they made their own lemonade.

Talk soon turned to marriage, and Davide asked: ‘Do you want to get married? Have you ever thought about it? ‘
Gemma said: ‘Yeah definitely. I’d like to get married and I want to have kids. ‘
Davide asked: ‘How many?’, Leading Gemma to say: ‘Like four!’
Sparks? Davide asked: ‘Do you want to get married? Have you ever thought about it? ‘ Gemma said: ‘Yeah definitely. I’d like to get married and I want to have kids’
Davide later said: ‘I was sure about my decision. What about you? ‘
Gemma said: ‘With Liam I’ve told him that I’ll still have chats with him and get to know him a bit more. I also told him I have more of an initial attraction to you than I do for him. I do think you’re a nice genuine guy.
‘I think you’ve got to, to be honest at the start I thought this guy has any banter, or does he just look nice.’
Really? Despite admitting the date went well and she was ‘still inclined’ to Davide, Gemma confessed she’s still ‘open to chatting to’ Liam Llewellyn
Stunned: Things appeared to be looking up for Liam by the episodes closing moments, as he managed to bag himself dates with both bombshells Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor
Shocked: Gemma appeared somewhat incredulous by the revelation, with viewers left waiting to see whether Liam’s dates are a success
Heading back to the villa, Gemma and Davide agreed their first date ‘went well,’ and later told the girls she was becoming ‘more inclined’ to the Italian hunk over Liam.
If MA student Liam is still single on Friday, he could face eviction from the show and miss out on the chance to win the £ 50,000.
But things appeared to be looking up by the episodes closing moments, as he managed to bag himself dates with both bombshells Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Afia Tonkmor.
Viewers were quick to slam Gemma following Tuesday’s show when she voiced that she preferred for men to approach her rather than vice versa.
‘Old fashioned’: Viewers were quick to slam Gemma following Tuesday’s show when she voiced that she preferred for men to approach her rather than vice versa
However social media users appeared confused by her statement.
‘”I’m a bit old-fashioned” babe ur nineteen,’ one said.
Another wrote: ‘Gemma said old fashioned SIS YOU ARE 19… old fashion for you is 2005 not 1950.’
A third penned: ‘Old fashioned you’re fresh out of the common room.’
Elsewhere someone said: ‘”I’m very old fashioned” babe you are NINETEEN what old fashioned are you talking about? The 2010’s? ‘
Another user voiced: ‘”Old fashioned” girl you were just born.’
Love Island continues tomorrow at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
