All the youngest Love Island contestants ever, as Michael Owen's daughter Gemma enters Love Island UK aged 19

“I’m fun, flirty and fiery,” says 19-year-old Gemma Owen.

Love Island announced today that Gemma Owen, daughter of professional football player Michael Owen, would be entering the Villa alongside 10 other Love Island 2022 contestants.

While the rest of this year’s lineup is aged between 23 and 28, Gemma is a few years younger than her fellow Islanders at just 19 years old.

"I am open to finding love, I’m wanting to have a really fun summer,” she told Love Island when asked why she wanted to enter the Villa. “I was seeing someone and then that didn’t work out so I thought, ‘Why not?’”

With Gemma being one of the youngest ever Islanders to go on the TV show, here’s a look back at some of the other young contestants who have appeared on our screens in the past. Plus, stay in the loop with all the latest Love Island news and memes in our brand new Facebook group.
