Love Island Odds – Do you know this about Gemma?



Gemma love island odds

With no major men’s football tournament taking place this summer, Love Island is sure to dominate plenty of households’ television sets for the next 10 weeks.

The hit ITV2 show’s eighth season began on Monday 6th June, with England and Liverpool legend Michael Owen’s 19-year-old daughter Gemma one of the first 13 contestants to enter the Majorca-based villa.

Gemma, who is an international dressage rider herself, is already on her third partner and last night was stunned to see her ex-boyfriend Jacques O’Neill, who is a professional rugby league player for Castleford Tigers, enter the villa.

Three couples who partnered up on Day 1 remain together – Andrew Le Page and Tasha Ghouri, Dami Hope and Amber Beckford, and Ikenna Ekwonna and Indiyah Polack – while the villa has seen two other new additions arrive, with Liam Llewellyn opting to leave the show.

Three of the previous seven winning couples of Love Island were together from Day 1, suggesting those aforementioned three couples in this year’s series have a good chance of going the distance.

However, it’s very early days and the odds ultimately reflect that, with no short-priced favourite emerging from the pack yet.

Let’s take a look at the early contenders!

Andrew and Tasha

27-year-old estate agent Andrew and 23-year-old model Tasha, who is the first partially deaf contestant in Love Island, haven’t had the smoothest ride so far.

Tasha felt Andrew was moving too quickly, particularly when laying a snog on her early on, and asked him to slow down.

She also made it clear she was attracted to Luca Bish, who has since moved on from Paige Thorne to Gemma, with Andrew twice opting to kiss Paige in a beer pong task.

However, in a recent episode, Tasha opened up to Andrew, revealing she has been hurt in the past and may be subconsciously scared of this happening again.

Andrew, to his credit, seems loyal to Tasha and clearly likes her a lot.

Of the Day 1 couples, they definitely look to have the most legs and are understandably the bookmakers’ favourite at 9/2 (Sky Bet).

Luca and Gemma

They’d only been coupled up a day before Jacques made his dramatic entrance into the villa.

Poor Luca. Having made the bold move of dumping Paige for Gemma in the most recent recoupling episode, he was clearly smitten and woke up with a beaming smile.

It did not take long for this to change, with the 23-year-old fishmonger revealing he felt “fed up” when seeing Jacques and Gemma chatting one-to-one.

Being around someone’s ex is the ultimate test for any relationship, let alone one which is barely a day old.

However, Gemma must be into Luca to have risked losing 27-year-old Italian stallion Davide Sanclimenti by opening up to Luca in the first place.

Time will tell whether it lasts. At 13/2 (Sky Bet), it’s surely too risky to be placing any money on it at this early stage, even if they do feel like the leading protagonists of the show at the moment.

Jacques and Paige

They’re not a couple yet, but there did look to be plenty of sexual chemistry on Jacques and Paige’s first date.

23-year-old Jacques is clearly a cheeky chappy, while 24-year-old paramedic Paige has all the makings of this summer’s national sweetheart given her journey so far.

The Welshwoman has taken her dumping by Luca in her stride, remaining a smiley, kind and positive person throughout the process so far.

However, it’s not clear whether Jacques is into her yet. He seemed to be acting more flirtily with his former flame Gemma and Ekin-Su Culculoglu, who is coupled up with Davide.

A much better bet would be backing Paige to be top female at 15/8 (William Hill). If she finds the right partner for her, she is going to be tough to stop.

The only other single-priced contending couple at the time of writing are Jacques and Gemma, who clearly still had plenty of chemistry in their conversation.

Both have suggested they have no interest in rekindling any romance but given it has been 18 months since they last saw each other, it would be foolish to rule anything out on that front.

I can’t see that being a particularly popular move with the viewers, though, so would steer clear of backing them in the winners market myself.
