Love Island’s Gemma Owen finally returned home to her lavish £4million family home in Chester on Saturday after months in the Mallorcan villa on the ITV2 show.

Taking to Instagram, the international dressage rider, 19, reunited with her famous footballer father Michael, 42, as they beamed together.

The photo was shared by Gemma’s mother, Louise, as the couple sat on a yellow pouf – similar to the famous ones in the garden of the Love Island villa.

Louise joked in her caption on her Instagram Story, “Oh no no more drama!!” with a palm tree emoji.

Gemma looked stunning in the snap as she rocked denim shorts, a white crop top and gold wedges, while accessorizing with dark shades.

Meanwhile, Michael looked stylish in a navy shirt and white shorts as he held a refreshing drink in his hand.

Earlier today, Gemma shared a video of herself heading inside her sprawling family home, where she was reunited with her beloved pets.

However, her footballer father Michael was quick to notice that she hadn’t included him in her sentimental moment as he joked in the comments: “I missed you in the clip.”

It comes after she and her beau Luca Bish appeared in a bad mood as they returned home from filming the Love Island reunion on Thursday night following an argument.

But Gemma was all smiles and had clearly put the tiff behind her as she settled back into her family home after her time in Spain.

Ditching her bikini for blue skinny jeans and a champagne satin shirt, Gemma was seen walking through the front door into the living room, where she was greeted with a balloon arch, complete with the Love Island logo.

She was then seen emotional as two of her dogs ran to greet her, with the beauty leaning in to greet them.

Gemma’s dogs are the silver Staffy Kaiser and the Italian greyhound Zola.

Gemma then made her way to the stables where she was then seen sharing a sweet hug with one of her twelve horses.

The clip then cuts to the reality star sitting on the sofa as she cuddles up to her beloved pooches after weeks apart.

Captioning her post, she wrote: “Reunited with my boys.”

And while several of her followers were quick to comment on how adorable the sweet moment was, her dad was more concerned that it didn’t feature in his daughter’s latest post.

Gemma lives in the Grade II listed mansion in the Welsh countryside with her famous footballer father Michael, her mother Louise Bonsall and her three siblings Emily May, 14, Jessica, 12 and James Michael, 16.

And while Gemma has settled in at home, her beau Luca has revealed he plans to move to Chester to be near his girlfriend after finding love on the ITV dating show.

The 23-year-old fishmonger, from Brighton, told how he was looking for a place to rent in the celebrity hot spot but would not move into his family’s estate.

Speaking after leaving the villa in second place with the dressage rider, 19, he said: “There’s no middle ground – it’s Chester or nothing!”

“I’m happy to go where she wants me to go. I don’t have too many commitments at home so it’s easier for me to move. Whatever makes us happy and whatever is just, we will. I hope that if I get close to her, in time, we will find a place together.

He added, “Just to be near his family, I would love to.” Hearing stories about his barbecues and stuff like that, I get really excited and I feel like I’m going to fit in perfectly.

But despite intending to move, Luca still tried to convince Gemma to move south as he shared a preview of his luxury abode on Instagram on Friday.

He shared an image of his sleek bathroom with marble tiles and a large freestanding bath – with stunning countryside views seen through the window.

He also shared a clip of a horse in a field, captioning his short clip: “Am I selling you Brighton Gemma Owen again?”

The couple previously fueled speculation that there was trouble in heaven as they sported faces of thunder on their way home from the reunion show, with Luca later confirming they had a falling out remarking: ” She has the right bump with me!”

However, Gemma and Luca stood together on Friday, as the dressage champion finally shared a love of the couple after the Love Island reunion was filmed.

The Love Island finalists wrapped around each other as fishmonger Luca, 23, beamed for a chic photo with Michael Owen’s daughter.

Reunion night with this one / It was so good to see everyone again! Don’t forget to watch it on @loveisland aftersun Sunday night @itv2′, the star wrote.

Gemma looked stunning as she donned a cowl neck satin midi dress in chocolate brown, with a thigh slit.

This is the first photo shared of the couple together on Gemma’s account in a week, after fans spotted an apparent snub towards Luca by his family.

Those responsible for the dressage rider’s account avoided sharing any mentions or photos of the fishmonger in the run-up to the final.

And after Gemma and Luca finished second, Luca’s family were quick to congratulate the couple, posting a photo of them with a gushing caption.

It read: “Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for all the support you have shown this beautiful couple. So excited to continue watching your trip from the outside. You really won by finding yourself.

It was in stark contrast to Gemma’s Instagram, which apparently only posted solo snaps of the brunette beauty before and after the final, with handsome Luca conspicuously absent.

Sharing a solo photo of Gemma in a nude ruched dress, her loved ones wrote the caption: “Words can’t describe how proud we all are of Gemma.

“She showed the nation how mature, honest and elegant she is. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the love and support…Gemma is going to be SO overwhelmed.

“We’re passing this on to Gemma now…We’ve loved managing her account and being part of her @loveisland journey. We can’t wait for what the future holds.

Eagle-eyed fans at home were quick to notice this and took to Twitter to suggest Gemma’s family didn’t like Luca too much and were doing ‘damage control’ to protect Gemma’s brand. .
