The rumours emerged just two months after the former Love Island runner-up split from Luca Bish, who she met on the ITV 2 show

Both Gemma Owen and Bugzy Malone have shut down dating rumours after news began to circulate that two were ‘getting close’, according to a national newspaper. The rumours came just two months after Owen split from Luca Bish.

The pair initially met on the 2022 series of popular ITV 2 show Love Island and finished as runner-ups despite many bust ups to eventual winners Davide Sanclimenti and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.

Meanwhile, her new rumoured beau Bugzy Malone - real name Aaron Davies - took to both Instagram and Tik Tok to dispel romance rumours. In a caption he tagged Owen’s father, Michael Owen and said:

“Your daughter looks lovely rkid, but 19 isn’t my cup of tea or coffee. Someone go tell (National newspaper) to BEHAVE!” The former footballer has yet to respond, and is notoriously private about his family life.

The 19-year-old has also been quick to quash any romance rumours, as she told the MailOnline “I have never met or spoken to him and we don’t follow each other on social media. I am not dating and I am definitely single.

“Just after Christmas, I had much needed time with my family and friends and I am working on myself. I am not going to date anytime soon and I’m not looking.

“On a personal level, I want to work on my happiness and investing time in people close to me, my family and friends and just being content in myself,” she said.
