Love Island’s Gemma Owen reunites with footballer dad Michael

Love Island’s Gemma Owen finally returned home to her lavish £4 million family home in Chester on Saturday, after months spent in the ITV2 show’s Mallorcan villa.

Taking to Instagram, the international dressage rider, 19, reunited with her famous footballer dad Michael, 42, as they beamed in a sweet snap together.

The picture was shared by Gemma’s mum Louise as the pair sat on a yellow bean bag – similar to those famously doted around the Love Island villa’s garden.

Louise joked in her caption on her Instagram Story: ‘Oh no not more drama!!’ along with a palm tree emoji.

Gemma looked gorgeous in the snap as she wore a pair of denim shorts, white crop top and gold wedges, while accessorising with dark shades.

Meanwhile, Michael looked smart in a navy shirt and white shorts as he held a refreshing drink in his hand.

Earlier in the day Gemma shared a video of her heading inside her sprawling family home, where she reunited with her beloved pets.

However, her footballer dad Michael was quick to remark that she didn’t include him in her sentimental moment as he quipped in the comments: ‘You missed me off the clip.’

It comes after she and beau Luca Bish appeared in glum spirits as they headed home after filming Love Island’s reunion on Thursday night following a row.

But Gemma was all smiles and had clearly put the tiff behind her as she settled back into her family abode after her stint in Spain.

Ditching her bikini for blue skinny jeans and a champagne satin shirt, Gemma was seen walking through the front door into the living room, where she was greeted with a balloon arch, featuring the Love Island logo.

She was then seen getting emotional as two of her dogs ran in to welcome her, with the beauty seen bending down to greet them.

Gemma’s dogs are silver Staffy Kaiser and Italian greyhound Zola.

Gemma then made her way into the stables where she was then seen sharing a sweet hug with one of her twelve horses.

The clip then cuts to the reality star sitting on the sofa as she cuddles up to her beloved pooches after weeks of being apart.

Captioning her post, she penned: ‘Reunited with my boys.’

And while several of her followers were quick to comment on how adorable the sweet moment, her dad was more concerned that he didn’t feature in his daughter’s latest post.

Gemma lives in the grade-II-listed manor in the Welsh countryside with her famous footballer dad Michael, mum Louise Bonsall, and three siblings Emily May, 14, Jessica, 12, and James Michael, 16.

And while Gemma settled in at home, her beau Luca revealed he’s planning on moving house to Chester to be near his girlfriend after they found love on the ITV dating show.

The fishmonger, 23, who hails from Brighton, has told how he is looking for somewhere to rent in the celebrity hot spot but won’t be moving in to her family’s estate.

Speaking after leaving the villa in second place with the dressage rider, 19, he said: ‘There is no middle ground – it’s Chester or nothing!’

‘I’m happy to go wherever she wants me to go. I haven’t got too many commitments back home so it’s easier for me to move. Whatever makes us happy and whatever is right we’ll do. Hopefully if I move near her, in time we’ll get a place together.’

He added: ‘Just to be near her family I’ll love. Hearing stories about her barbecues and stuff like that, I’m quite excited and I feel like I’ll fit right in.

But despite planning on moving away, Luca still made a bid to convince Gemma to move own south as he shared a glimpse of his luxury abode on Instagram on Friday.

He shared an image of his stylish bathroom adorned with marble tiles and a large free-standing bath – with stunning countryside views seen through the window.

He also shared a clip of a horse in a field, captioning his short clip: ‘Am I selling Brighton to you yet Gemma Owen?’

The couple previously fuelled speculation that there was trouble in paradise as they sported faces of thunder while heading home from the reunion show, with Luca later confirming they had argued as he remarked: ‘She’s got the right hump with me!’

However, Gemma and Luca put on a united front on Friday, as the dressage champ finally shared a loved up of the pair following the filming of the Love Island reunion.

The Love Island runners up wrapped an arm around one another, as fishmonger Luca, 23, beamed for a chic snap with Michael Owen’s daughter.

‘Reunion night with this one / It was so good to see everyone again! Don’t forget to watch it on @loveisland aftersun Sunday night @itv2’, wrote the star.

Gemma looked stunning as she donned a satin, cowl neck midi dress in a chocolate brown, with a thigh grazing slit detail.

It marks the first photo shared of the couple together on Gemma’s account in a week, after fans spotted an apparent snub towards Luca by her family.

The dressage rider’s account handlers have avoided sharing any mention or photos of the fishmonger in the run up to the final.

And following Gemma and Luca’s second-place finish, Luca’s family were quick to congratulate the couple, posting a snap of them together with a gushing caption.

It read: ‘Thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts for all of the support you’ve shown this gorgeous couple. So excited to continue watching your journey from the outside. You really did win by finding each other.’

This was in stark contrast to Gemma’s Instagram, which noticeably only posted solo snaps of the brunette beauty in the lead-up and following the final, with beau Luca noticeably absent.

Sharing a solo snap of Gemma clad in a nude ruched gown, her loved ones penned the caption: ‘Words can’t describe how proud we all are of Gemma.

‘She has shown the nation how mature, honest and classy she truly is. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for all the love and support…Gemma is going to be SO overwhelmed.

‘We are passing this back to Gemma now… We have loved running her account and being part of her @loveisland journey. We can’t wait for what the future holds.’

Eagle-eyed fans at home were quick to notice this, and took to Twitter to suggest that Gemma’s family were not overly fond of Luca and that they were doing ‘damage control’ to protect Gemma’s brand.

    ‘I’ve got butterflies’ A Place in the Sun buyer thrilled as ‘cheeky’ low offer accepted

    During Tuesday’s instalment of the Channel 4 show, viewers saw presenter Jasmine Harman on a mission to try and find one couple’s ideal getaway home in the Southwest of France. Despite finding a place which fell under their £100,000 budget, Simon and Lawrence decided to see if the homeowners would take £10,000 below their original asking price.

    At the start of the episode, Jasmine realised she had her work cut out for her when trying to find the perfect place for the couple.

    Simon and Lawrence, who have been together for 17 years, admitted they’ve spent a lot of time in the area already and had seen 20 properties in the past.

    The two men gave the Channel 4 presenter a list of requirements they had in mind and revealed their budget of £100,000.

    Although Jasmine had taken them to four properties in the show, they fell in love with the fifth and final place in La Chapelle.

    The home, which was being sold for £98,000 won over Simon and Lawrence and they revealed to Jasmine they wanted to put an offer in.

    When discussing their decision, one of the men asked: “Can we go in at £88,000?”

    Commenting on the low offer, his partner replied: “It’s a bit cheeky?”

    Jasmine rang the agent to discuss the offer, which was £10,000 under the asking price.

    After she got off the phone, Jasmine said to the men: “Oh my goodness it’s so nerve-wracking!

    “Fingers crossed, if they accept it and you get it for that kind of price, you are absolutely quids in.”

    One of the men could be heard saying he had butterflies as he waited for the call.

    The estate agent confirmed the homeowners would not go that low but had come back with an incredible counter offer.

    Jasmine told the pair: “They’ve said that they would accept £92,000 and they would for that price leave all the garden machinery and also any furniture that you want from inside the house.

    “£92,000, guys what are you thinking?”

    Although it was clear to viewers one of the men was keen to accept the offer, one was a bit hesitant and wanted to put in one final offer of £90,000.

    His partner told him to think before making the call as they were returning in a few weeks and could have a second look around.

    At the end of the episode, Jasmine revealed to viewers Simon and Lawrence had in fact made an offer.

    She said: “Once they got home they couldn’t stop thinking about the pretty French cottage and decided they didn’t want to wait five weeks.

    “So, they made a counter offer of £90,000 which was accepted.”

    News The Buckshee

    Louise Redknapp is reportedly back on the dating scene with the help of her friends and family. The 47-year-old singer was married to Jamie, 49, for almost 20 years but the couple called it quits in 2017.

    Jamie has since moved on and remarried Swedish model Frida Andersson in October last year.

    The newlyweds welcomed their first child together, son Raphael Anders Redknapp in November.

    The couple also have six children between them from their former marriages, making them a blended family of nine.

    It now seems Louise is ready to get back on the market and has enjoyed a few dates arranged by her pals.

    “Louise has opened herself up to the prospect of finding a new man and has been enjoying some set-ups through friends,” a source close to the star told Closer magazine.

    They added: “She feels better than ever but she knows that she doesn’t need a man to be happy.”

    Express.co.uk has contacted Louise Redknapp’s representatives for comment.

    In 2020, Jamie and Frida went public with their romance and announced they were expecting a child together just 10 months later.

    They wed shortly before the arrival of their son Raphael, now eight months old.

    According to reports, Louise was said to be shocked by Jamie’s whirlwind romance but the former Eternal bandmate shut down the claims.

    The mum-of-two was forced to address her “secret despair”.

    Taking to Instagram in December 2021, Louise explained she was in a “positive headspace”.

    She wrote: “I try not to read or respond to these things but sometimes they are unavoidable. I’d really love to clarify that ‘Louise’ is not in despair or anything like it!!

    “I have my two gorgeous boys that I adore more than anything in the world, the best family around me and I’m having the time of my life with my career and with the most wonderful friends that a girl could hope for.

    “I’d like to make it clear that I’m in the most positive of headspace and loving my life. Here’s to all the ladies out there that are in control of their lives and living their very best lives!”

    Louise and Jamie were married for more than two decades, but following her stint on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 they decided to end their relationship.

    The couple have two sons together, Charley, 18 and Beau, 13.

    Speaking about her dating life last year, Louise said her sons were “desperate” for their mum to find a new love interest but the performer said she was too busy.

    The singer told Fabulous magazine: “On my days off, going out and having a social life is not my priority.

    “It sounds basic, but I’ve got two things that are really important to me right now: my kids, because I want to be a solid part of their life, and my work.”

    In a surprising confession about self-love, Louise added: “Right now, that’s enough for me, I’m not saying forever. I’m learning to just be OK with myself. I’m loving myself, but I’ve been OK. I’m getting there.”

    Idris Elba, 49, poses alongside his daughter Isan, 20, at Beast premiere in NYC

    Idris Elba had an extra special plus-one for his appearance at the Beast premiere in New York City – his rarely-seem daughter Isan.

    The actor, 49, was all smiles as he posed alongside his child, 20, at the event, held at the Metropolitan Musuem Of Art on Monday.

    The film star looked dapper for the evening as he sported a blue-grey blazer and matching trousers.

    Also sporting a white top, Idris completed his look for the premiere with a pair of black shoes.

    Isan wore a chic plaid Miu Miu blouse that was rolled up at the bottom and held together by a single button to reveal her trim midriff.

    She paired the top with a matching mini skirt and a slim black belt, and she wore tall rolled-up white socks with silvery open-toe heels.

    She wore glittering Miu Miu earrings and a hair clip that bore the name.

    The actor shares his daughter with ex-wife, make-up artist Hanne ‘Kim’ Nørgaard while he also has a son named Winston, eight, with former girlfriend Naiyana Garth.

    Elba brought his first wife Hanne, with him when he moved to New York to launch his career.

    However, he struggled to master an American accent and was reduced to working as a labourer and nightclub bouncer.

    When Norgaard became pregnant with daughter Isan in 2001, the marriage collapsed because of the financial strain. As it turned out, Isan was born on the very day he secured his role on The Wire, the launch pad for his later success.

    A ten-year affair with pole dancer Desiree Newberry followed, and it was during a lengthy break from this that he met his second wife Sonya.

    Idris was also joined at the premiere by his current wife Sabrina, 34, who cut a glamorous figure in a black dress with long sleeves.

    Idris stars in Beast — released on August 19 — as a newly widowed scientist who returns to South Africa for a trip to a game reserve with his two daughters.

    It comes as Idris is reportedly in talks once again to star in the lead role in the James Bond films.

    The actor was confirmed as being ‘part of the conversation’ to be the next 007 by the blockbuster franchise’s producer Barbara Broccoli, 61, earlier this year.

    The role has most recently been played by Daniel Craig, but he made his final outing as Bond in No Time To Die.

    He had previously ditched the idea of playing the spy and discussed the idea of playing a villain instead, but he is again being considered after he ranked highly in market research, according to The Sun.

    A source told the publication: ‘Idris has long been in talks to play a role in the next era of James Bond’s story and last year was being considered for a role as an antagonist.’

    Speaking to Variety, Barbara said: ‘It’s a big decision. It’s not just casting a role. It’s about a whole rethink about where we’re going.’

    Nick Cannon cuts comfy figure in sweats as he steps out in Malibu with mother of his child Bre Tiesi

    Nick Cannon and the mother of his child, Bre Tiesi, stepped out in Malibu on Monday for dinner at Nobu.

    The actor, 41, donned a gray sweater and matching sweatpants on his afternoon out. He pulled a white and gray baseball cap low over his eyes.

    Tiesi, 31, wore a black leather coat and a matching purse.

    Small silver earrings dangled down toward her shoulders, and she painted her lips a pale pink.

    The duo’s afternoon out came just a few weeks after the model gave birth to their child, Cannon’s eighth kid.

    Cannon was present for the labor and delivery, which was documented in a video that she shared on her YouTube account. She said: ‘This was the most humbling / limit pushing yet awakening and completely empowering experience.

    ‘I can’t thank my team enough for delivering my son safely. This experience has changed me forever and I couldn’t of asked for a more amazing and supportive partner. Daddy showed the f up for us.. I couldn’t of done it without you. I can’t believe he’s here.’

    Tiesi also added a vlog of her birth process on YouTube which chronicled her pregnancy, natural induction, labor and delivery of the child, who at birth weighed eight pounds, 10 ounces, measuring 21 inches long.

    Cannon lauded Tiesi in a response to her Instagram post, saying he was ‘honored and privileged’ to welcome a child with her.

    ‘You never cease to amaze me!!’ he said. ‘Full of passion, drive, focus, brilliance and most importantly love!!! Honored and privileged to experience this beautiful miracle with you! Thank you for the greatest gift any human can give to another. For this my love is forever indebted.’

    Cannon is currently father to eight kids with five partners. They include his twins 11-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Mariah Carey; Golden, five, and Powerful, one, with Brittany Bell; twins Zion Mixolydian and Zillion Heir, one, with Abby De La Rosa; and late son Zen, who tragically died last December from brain cancer, with Alyssa Scott.

    Cannon earlier this year revealed he and Tiesi were expecting a boy with a sex reveal at a baby shower.

    On The Nick Cannon Show in January, the entertainer said he was ‘gonna be the best dad [he] can possibly be.’

    He referred to his late son Zen in making the announcement, saying he was measured in when to announce the news amid the tragedy.

    ‘This process has been extremely difficult for me,’ Cannon said. ‘I’ve known about Bre’s pregnancy for awhile now, even before my youngest son, Zen, passed.

    ‘So even going through all of that, this was always in the back of my mind. When is the right time? When do I share this? To kind of figure out a chronological order or hierarchy, it kept me up at night.’

    Cannon is also expecting his ninth child, purportedly with De La Rosa, this October.

    In the interview, Cannon said: ‘I’ve practiced monogamy, I’ve been a cheater, I’ve been toxic … it all starts with honesty. It’s really just surface, basic stuff. One of my therapists coined what I do as consensual non-monogamy.

    ‘Because to even pretend like I’m in a monogamous relationship, that would be misleading. Because, as we know, monogamy defines one thing – and people like to classify what I do as polyamory or polygamy, but even that, I always say to define me is to confine me.’

    Ashton Kutcher confirms he is ‘all good’ and has ‘fully recovered’ from rare autoimmune disorder

    Ashton Kutcher assured his fans Monday that he is ‘all good’ and has ‘fully recovered’ from a health scare he suffered years ago.

    He recently revealed on TV that he is ‘lucky to be alive’ after suffering from a rare autoimmune disorder that left him unable to hear, see or walk.

    The 44-year-old then issued a clarification on Twitter ‘[b]efore there are a bunch of rumors/ chatter/ whatever out there’ about his present condition.

    ‘Yes, I had a rare vasculitis episode 3yrs ago. (Autoimmune flair up) I had some impairments hear, vision, balance issues right after. I fully recovered. All good. Moving on. See you at the 2022 NY Marathon w/Thorn,’ he wrote.

    Ashton spoke about the condition that upended his life in a sneak peek of an upcoming episode of Running Wild with Bear Grylls: The Challenge, on which he detailed the horrific symptoms he suffered from as a result of his autoimmune disorder.

    ‘I had this weird, super rare form of vasculitis, that like knocked out my vision, it knocked out my hearing, it knocked out like all my equilibrium,’ he said in the clip, which was shared by Access Hollywood. ‘It took me like a year to build it all back up.’

    According to the Mayo Clinic, vasculitis involves the inflammation of the blood vessels causing the walls to thicken, reducing the width of the passageway through the vessel.

    If blood flow is restricted, organ and tissue damage can occur. There are many types of vasculitis, and most of them are rare.

    According to Kutcher, his harrowing experience with vasculitis, though scary, gave him a new-found appreciation for his health and his senses, explaining that he hadn’t ever truly realized how essential they were, until he lost them.

    ‘You don’t really appreciate it, until it’s gone,’ admitted the human rights activist.

    ‘Until you go, “I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to see again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to hear again, I don’t know if I’m ever going to be able to walk again.”‘

    He added that he is ‘lucky to be alive’.

    The actor revealed that it took him a year to build up his strength, prompting Grylls to praise his ‘strength through adversity’.

    The father of two said he considers challenges an opportunity for growth.

    ‘The minute you start seeing your obstacles as things that are made for you, to give you what you need, then life starts to get fun, right? You start surfing on top of your problems instead of living underneath them,’ he said.

    The episode featuring Ashton will be released Monday night on National Geographic.

    Kutcher did not specify when exactly his medical issues began, however the actor maintained a relatively low profile during the pandemic lockdown, sharing just a few Instagram posts from the home he shares with Kunis, 38, while the pair were quarantining with their children.

    The actors have also been rigorous about continuing to wear face masks for almost all of their public outings since the pandemic began, with both opting to go without face coverings on just a handful of occasions since March 2020, even after their hometown of Los Angeles removed all mask mandates.

    Last month, the pair were both seen sporting face masks as they stepped out for a grocery store run with their two children.

    However, Kutcher chose to go without a face covering this weekend, when he put on a very sporty display while enjoying a beach outing with his family – taking the opportunity to show off his athletic skills while playing some football.

    The Stoner Cats star enjoyed playing some football on the beach with his wife in Santa Barbara.

    That 90s Show star was shirtless and wore a pair of red and blue knee length swim trunks and a white billed cap as he threw the ball.

    An adorable black dog tried to get in on the action.

    The game got pretty intense as Kutcher – who is a former assistant high school football coach – was seen lying on the sand while triumphantly raising the ball in the air to prove he’d made a difficult catch.

    In the preview clip from Kutcher’s upcoming appearance on Grylls’ latest show, he did not go into detail about his vasculitis treatment process, however the Mayo Clinic states that treatment for the condition typically ‘focuses on controlling the inflammation and managing any underlying conditions that may be triggering the vasculitis’.

    The most common type of drug prescribed for vasculitis sufferers are corticosteroids, which are used to control the inflammation of the blood vessels.

    However these can have a number of unpleasant and severe side effects, including weight gain, diabetes, and weakened bones.

    Kate Hudson brings back Nineties fashion in NYC

    Kate Hudson was spotted today sipping on a green beverage while she walked in New York City.

    The star – who has most recently been seen flaunting her perfectly toned bikini body and soaking up the sun in California – looked ready for fall’s cooler months.

    The 43-year-old blonde had on a striped blazer over a white T-shirt and jeans with chunky loafers.

    Hudson stylishly paired high-waisted wide-leg blue jeans with a loose-fitting cotton v-neck t-shirt neatly tucked in at the top.

    She wore an oversized men’s pinstripe suit coat draped over her shoulders.

    Comfort over glam, the star chose to wear chunky black penny loafers with gold hardware to finish off the laidback business casual look.

    Hudson looked effortlessly stylish as she seemingly got a pep in her step and picked up momentum in the New York morning sun.

    Her natural blonde locks pulled in a messy top knot, the actress pulled off her coat and carried it over her shoulder as she briskly pounded the pavement.

    Wearing black sunglasses and dainty gold jewelry, the actress and mother of three appeared busy in the city.

    The Something Borrowed actress also known for her break-out roles in romantic comedies like the cult classic How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days has added entrepreneur to her resume.

    She has been noticeably promoting her craft vodka brand King Street all summer and has more projects in the works.

    Hudson, who spends time between New York and Los Angeles, is the daughter of Oscar-winning icon actress Goldie Hawn.
