There’s been plenty of drama on Love Island this year, from Summer Botwe kicking off at Dami Hope after Movie Night to Tasha Ghouri falling out with Luca Bish and Davide Sanclimenti’s unforgettable ‘you’re a LIEERR’ rant, but it seems it’s far from over even though there’s only a week to go until the final.
In fact, viewers are convinced that two Islanders are embroiled in a secret feud following the latest episode of the ITV2 dating show.
Last night’s show saw Davide finally go exclusive with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu after weeks of ups and downs and while most of the Islanders were thrilled for them, some fans couldn’t help but point out Gemma Owen’s “bitter” reaction.
One tweeted, “Who’s gonna tell Ekin-Su that Gemma is not her friend? She was not happy for her when she became exclusive with Davide, and couldn’t have seemed more bitter,” while another wrote, “I hope Ekin watches this back and sees how fake Gemma has been to her.”
A third remarked, “I love Gemma but hearing Ekin Su calling her her best friends is weird cuz Gemma always slags her off when she isn’t there 🥴🥴.”
One more added, “Gemma being bitter about Ekin-su and Davide being exclusive is strange….”
Despite the comments, Gemma and Ekin-Su have often referred to each other as their “best friend” during their time in the villa and usually go to each other for advice about their relationship woes.
However, Ekin-Su did appear to throw shade at Gemma before she even entered the villa (although it is hard to remember life before Ekin-Su) in a series of unearthed texts.
In messages seen by The Sun, Ekin-Su allegedly wrote, “Gemma Owen is only 19! I reckon she would be my little sista in there. She’s a baby LMAO."
The Essex-based actress allegedly added, “No fit girls though. Or guys."
