‘No wonder they bottled the final!’ Football fans poke fun at Love Island runners-up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish as they sport matching Tottenham shirts – amid the team’s losing streak

Football fans have been poking fun at Love Island runners-up Gemma Owen and Luca Bish after they sported matching Tottenham shirts in a new snap.

Many have now joked – ‘no wonder they bottled the final’ amid Tottenham’s notorious losing streak. The north London team last picking up a trophy in 2008.

Another joked: ‘No way she’s doing this to her dad’ – in reference to Michael Owen who played for Liverpool back in the day.

It comes after earlier this month it was reported that Gemma is being lined up to star in a new reality TV show about the lives of footballers’ daughters.

The star, 19, – whose famous father is retired Liverpool and England legend Michael – made her name on Love Island and now TOWIE and Celebs Go Dating production company Lime Pictures is said to have another big project in mind.

She could be in good company, with Paul Gascoigne‘s daughter Bianca, 35, also reportedly being approached about appearing on the show. 

An insider told The Sun of the potential series: ‘This is being billed as a one-of-a-kind show which will reveal what it is really like to be the daughter of a famous football star.

‘Lime is developing the concept now and ITV has shown a real interest in it. Gemma is top of their casting wish list.

‘Her dad Michael is one of England’s most famous footballing stars, and given her huge popularity since she appeared on ‘Love Island’ she is the person that they want signed up.’

Lime Productions has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.  

The series is reportedly set to focus on the womens’ everyday lives with the ‘highs and lows’ of having a famous footballer for a dad.

The source added that the show will give a glimpse at how the stars choose to ‘follow their dreams’ and break down barriers to ‘make a name for themselves’.

The report came after Gemma – who came second on Love Island with partner Luca Bish – recently signed a six-figure deal with clothing brand PLT. 

Gemma is expected to become the richest Love Island contestant ever, eclipsing 2019 Islander Molly-Mae Hague, 23, by signing with the global fashion website. 

Gemma told MailOnline after signing with the brand: ‘This really is a dream come true for me. 

‘I wore PrettyLittleThing throughout my time on the show and now being announced as one of their newest ambassadors alongside some incredible talent including Love Island alumni is really special.

‘The team has been amazing and I’m excited to get to work and start designing some collections for you all.’

Gemma is the first UK brand ambassador for PrettyLittleThing since they signed Love Island 2019 runner-up Molly-Mae, who is estimated to be worth an eye-watering £4.5million.

The International dressage star, who has competed for Great Britain, came second in the Love Island final with Luca – a fishmonger from Brighton.

Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti, both 27, who garnered 63.7 per cent of the public vote, beat them to the £50,000 cash prize.
