Gemma Owen of Love Island gives us a surprising insight on the Luca Bish romance ...

Gemma Owen, who grew up with her family in Love Island, has admitted that Luca Bish has yet to make things official between them.

Gemma admitted that she prefers to wait until after he had met her family to become official during their time together on the most recent series.

Luca appears to be still unable to answer that particular question, although Gemma admits in a recent interview that she was "still waiting".

Co-host Rob Howard asked, "Is this like an act of waiting, you're requesting it to happen?"

Gemma replied, "Well, I feel like at this point, yeah!"

Lauren Layfield, a fellow presenter, said, "You've been waiting a while now, and we've all been waiting, so now I want proposal levels of asking you out, do you know, I want it big!"

Gemma continued: "I mean, I know I said in the villa, let's wait till we get out, want you to see the family, let's not rush it."

Gemma intervened to Luca's defence following criticism of his behavior at the villa.

"I think viewers only see an hour a day," she told Virgin Media's The Six O'Clock Show. "People are placed in different situations than you would expect on the outside. People behave differently in these types of situations."

"I think personally it's unfair to judge someone just after that hour."

"I think certain actions might have been altered, but everyone makes mistakes," the star said. "You get placed in situations in there that no one truly understands until you're in there living it."

Love Island is available on ITV2 and via catch-up on ITV Hub and BritBox.
