Love Island fans have blasted the show after Gemma Owen seems to be getting the most airtime.
Viewers have cried out on Twitter to see more of Indiyah and Ikenna as well as Amber and Demi, just like in the unseen bits on Saturday night. They also criticised the show saying that it was turning into “the Gemma show” since a lot of the drama seems to be revolving around the 19-year-old daughter of Michael Owen in recent episodes.
So far, the dressage rider has been coupled with Liam Llewellyn by the public before Italian stallion bombshell Davide Sanclimenti picked her as his love interest. But Davide soon had his head turned by newcomer Ekin-Su Cülcüloglu, and Liam sadly decided to leave the villa before Gemma moved on to Luca Bish.
Tonight’s episode saw Gemma’s attention turn elsewhere once more as the latest addition, Jacques O’Neill, entered the singleton line-up. It turned out they already had history as Jacques is actually Gemma’s ex boyfriend. They were together for eight months, and the newcomer hinted the break up “was not amicable”.
But with so much happening with Gemma since the show kicked off last Monday, fans feel like they are missing out on precious screen time from other contenders.
Alex said: “The only episode that wasn’t Gemma based was the unseen bits and that was the only time the others got to show their personalities #loveisland.” Liv said: “Why is this the Gemma show? #loveisland.”
Maia said: “Everything in this show is about Gemma. I’m tired please show me some Paige, Ikenna and Indyiah and not only in the unseen bit! #LoveIsland.” Meanwhile, Claire said: “Welcome to the Gemma show… YAWN! There’re loads more people in there!!! #LoveIsland.”
Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub
