Michael Owen breaks Love Island silence after daughter Gemma 'done us proud' in finale
Love Island final 2022 spoilers ahead
Michael Owen said his daughter Gemma had "done us proud" after the conclusion of this year's Love Island series.
Gemma has been one of the stars of this year's series and made it all the way to the final with her partner Luca Bish.
But, despite making it all the way to the final two in Monday's final, the pair fell at the final hurdle as the bookies' favourites Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti claimed the crown.
Following the finale, Gemma's dad, Michael, tweeted how proud her family were of her.

Michael has chosen to keep a relatively low profile throughout the series.
Before the series began, Gemma said that her dad wasn't "buzzing" about her appearing in the villa, but that he was "pretty chilled" and trusted her not to do anything to embarrass them.
He didn't appear on the famous meet the parents episode, with his wife Louise instead travelling to the villa for that.
And when he has commented, he's kept things very simple. Earlier in the series, in a particular racy moment involving Gemma, a simple emoji from Michael said a thousand words.
It remains to be seen whether Gemma has managed to find love in the villa. Her and Luca have been together for most of the series and left the villa together following the final, but Luca has certainly been a source of controversy for many viewers.
