Love Island’s Luca Bish posts image of Gemma Owen in bed amidst Remi bullying allegations
ove Island 2022 runner-up Luca Bish has given a small update of his relationship with Gemma Owen, who is pictured smiling in his bed on his Instagram story.
The 23-year-old fishmonger from Brighton posted the intimate picture of the 19-year-old international dressage rider sitting up in his bed, with a hoodie, on his story on Monday, August 8.
Bish captioned the image, “Morning view” with an added red love heart emoji.
This comes amid allegations of “bullying” from 22-year-old contestant Remi, who has openely stated that Bish and Jacques O’Neil, 23, would disguise their behaviour as “banter” in the villa.
The accusations came after an Instagram live video clip of best friends Bish and O’Neil went viral on Twitter, showing the pair appearing to mock the Manchester rapper for his rapping skills.
Bish remarked in the clip: “We’re not MCs, we need Remi in here for that.”
A fan impersonating Remi in the Live comments, responded: “What you boys saying about me and my rapping?”
O’Neil replied: “I said it’s really, really good, you should turn pro.”
This exchange was followed by laughter as the pair exchanged looks.
Remi reposted the viral clip to his Instagram page on Monday, slamming both of his co-stars for their comments.
He wrote: “loveisland ? I never joined their live so I didn’t comment actually. A fake account called remilamb0 did. Don’t know why these guys have such a problem with me, clearly got some serious issues they need to sort out.
“Everyone said I lied about the way I was treated in that villa, but this here is an example of what was going on whilst I was in there. Don’t know why they wasn’t kicked out for their behaviour to be honest. It’s not banter, it’s clear signs of bullying.”
Branding them immature, he added: “I wish everyone could see all of the crap I went through. There’s 24 hours in a day and yous only seen like about 3-5 10 second clips of me out of the whole day, so you could never tell what was truly happening.
“Jacques said bad things about my appearance and the way I speak, whilst Luca was encouraging it. After about 3 strikes from Jacques I told him I won’t be speaking to him anymore in the villa.
“Later on he tried apologising to me but like 10 minutes after he started with the snide comments again. I’ve tried to avoid this guy multiple times but he always ends up starting again.”
Both Bish and O’Neil are yet to publicly address the accusations.
