Gemma Owen’s lookalike aunt and cousin insist she WON’T get back with ex Jacques | The Sun

LOVE Island star Gemma Owen's family have addressed rumours she and ex-boyfriend Jacques O'Neill will get back together.

Since Jacques, 23, shocked 19-year-old Gemma by showing up in the villa, fans have been convinced there's still something between the former flames.


Appearing on spin-off show Aftersun, Gemma's auntie Lesley admitted it is "weird" to see them together on TV.

She added: "They’re similar and they’ve always had that banter between them so – you can see it on the show."

But when host Laura Whitmore asked if she saw the pair getting back together, Lesley replied: "No, it’s definitely done. They’re just friends. Definitely friends."

Gemma's cousin Ellie, who was also on the show, nodded in agreement.

Jacques added: "I think it needs to be the right person, at the right time."
