Love Island's Gemma Owen's panned by viewers as odds on her winning show plunge

GEMMA Owen has been panned by Love Island viewers as her “rude” behaviour has seen her odds on winning the show tumble. 

The dressage rider, who is the daughter of footy legend Michael Owen, has faced a backlash after she brutally snubbed new partner Liam Llewellyn, 22, on the launch episode.

Elsewhere she sniped at fishmonger Luca Bish, bitching: "I feel like that's a bit of an unfortunate last name… Bish? Nah. Not feeling it.”

Viewers took to Twitter to slate the 19-year-old, branding her “rude” and “mannerless”. 

And former Islanders including last year’s runner-up, Chloe Burrows, plus winter Love Island favourite Shaughna Phillips, added to the outcry. 

Chloe, who is still dating Toby Aromolaran from the show, said: “Gemma you’re attitude STINKS.”

Shaughna, who is known for her ‘Congrats, Hun’ moment, added: “So I thought Gemma was quite rude about Luca's surname.”

Bookmakers have reacted to Gemma’s unfortunate TV debut.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Punters may have scored an own goal in backing Gemma Owen for success in the villa. 

“Having headed the betting before Monday's series opener, she's tumbled to third-favourite, behind the popular Paige and Tasha."

One Twitter user wrote: “Gemma is acting exactly like you’d expect of the 19 year old daughter of a celeb, it’s just not the vibe.

Another added: "Wtf who insults someone's surname??? Mannerless…."

And a third surmised: "Gemma slagging off luca's last name, being like that with liam during the challenge and kissing davide, and calling ikenna' croc man' please why are you acting like that so rude.”

The action continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
