GEMMA Owen’s mum will arrive in the Love Island villa tonight to give her take on her daughter’s romance with Luca Bish.
Many thought that would have spelled curtains for Luca and Gemma – with Tasha coming under fire from many of the lads, including the fishmonger.
Yet as the Meet The Parents episode returns tonight, it sees Gemma’s mum and her friend Sarah arrive.
Louise tells Gemma of her dad Michael: “Honestly, he is really proud of you, really proud.”
She added of the wider family: “They’re all loving watching you, they’re missing you like mad.”

Luca’s dad Michael – who arrives wearing his own iconic fish flop shoes – says of Gemma: “She puts you straight doesn’t she.”
Maria adds of Gemma: “First night I said they fancy each other, I knew it.
“I love the values and morals she has.”
It remains to be seen how the full conversation plays out.

Viewers are convinced Louise could enlighten her daughter on the ‘red flags’ he has given off throughout the series.
A source previously told the Mail Online that Gemma’s mum will be entering the villa – not Michael – and that she will not hold back if she doesn’t like Luca.
“Louise is very blunt and doesn’t pull any punches,” the insider said. “If she doesn’t like someone she will say. It is a trait Gemma has inherited.”
The Meet The Parents episode will air just 24 hours before this year’s Love Island live final.
Fans will find out on Monday night which couple has been crowned the 2022 winners of the ITV2 show.
But it has been claimed that 19-year-old Gemma is ready to “quit” before even making it to the final hurdle.
Lacey Edwards, who entered the villa for just a few days last week, insisted the dressage rider and Luca are “done” with the show now.
In a TikTok video Lacey said: “They’ve been in there so long and they’ve really found what they’re looking for, they could happily just move out together and go back home together now.

“They’re over doing the games and challenges. With Luca, it’s playing with his head he’s like ‘I just want my girl and I want to get out of here now’.”
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox
