After pulling Luca for a chat, Gemma said: ‘You’ve probably noticed I am being a little bit off the last day.
‘What initially attracted me to you is that you didn’t give a s**t but I’ve seen a different side to you, which I do like but I don’t want to feel that’s us two married off now and that’s it.’
A baffled Luca responded: ‘Why are we married off?’ later adding: ‘Listen we both like each other and we will see how it goes.’

The chat comes after Gemma enjoyed a flirty chat with Jacques that she admitted would leave Luca ‘fuming.’
On Wednesday’s episode the exes sat down for a chat about her relationship with Luca after the arrival of two new boys promised to stir some drama.
But whilst Gemma wasn’t chosen for any dates with newcomers, Jay Younger and Remi Lambert, it appeared that Luca still had his fair share of concerns.
Drama: Luca was left fuming as Gemma enjoyed a flirty chat with her ex-boyfriend Jacques O’Neill on Wednesday’s episode
As Gemma sat down for a conversation with Jaques outside, she exclaimed: ‘Oh, Luca will be fuming,’ as she caught a glimpse of the fishmonger walking past.
Jaques reasoned: ‘When I talk to you to say how much of a good lad he is and how well you two get on, there’s nothing wrong with it at all.’
But the daughter of footballer Micheal Owen, added: ‘Why are you doing that face then?’

Speaking later in the beach hut Luca added: ‘It’s so weird, honestly, I get on with him as well so I don’t even want him to go home. But, I want him to go home.’
Back in the garden Tasha explained to Luca: ‘You just need to think that there might be times like that but you and Gemma have something special.’
‘I just don’t want to get hurt,’ he replied.
Elsewhere Gemma mentioned that it has been a longtime since the end of her relationship with Jaques, with him adding: ‘But it has gone quick.
‘My head was a mess mate, I’ve never got back on. I was seeing a girl for a bit but…’
Awkward! Tuesday’s show later showed the couple at loggerheads, after Gemma accidentally called Luca by her ex-boyfriend Jacques’ name
In the beach hut Jaques continued: ‘We were together for a year we’re going to have things to speak about, I know her family very good she knowns mine very good, we just have a general chitchat about life.’

She suffered a slip of the tongue while hugging the fishmonger, while her former flame was sat right beside them.
After Luca walked off to the garden, Gemma reflected on her wrong name blunder, as she asked her fellow islanders ‘that was bad wasn’t it?’
