Love Island star Lucas family slams trolls for calling him controlling amid Gemma drama

Love Island star Luca Bish’s family have snapped back at trolls who have called the contestant “controlling” following the drama between him and his partner on the show Gemma Owen.

On Monday night’s episode, Gemma, 19, got heated in the villa after her comments about “not being far off” from Dami Hope ’s mind-reading that she could possibly have her head turned spread among the Islanders.

Luca, 23, let his feelings for the dressage champion be known once again after the tense moment as he asked Gemma whether or not she feels the same way about him.

The fishmonger’s attachment to Gemma has led commenters to describe him as “controlling”, which Luca’s family made clear they don't agree with as they spoke out about their unhappy feelings about the remarks online in support of the star.

Posting a shot of Luca smiling in the villa, the family wrote on his Instagram: “Could not be more proud of our boy if we tried.

"Such a huge shame to see the stigma surrounding men being transparent with their emotions…he’s expressed how into Gemma he is, and it’s taken as controlling?

“He’s THE funniest and most caring kid we know and we will forever be proud at how much he’s wearing his heart on his sleeve. He promised us he’d be his beautiful self and play no game, and he’s sticking to his word.

“You are making your family so proud our Luca. Thank you for all of the lovely messages #LEMMA.”

The caption has received several thousand likes since it was posted on Monday, as well as many comments from fans sharing their praise for Luca and agreement with his family that he is not controlling with Gemma.

“I don’t understand all the hate! Such a lovely guy with a good heart,” one person wrote.

“Some of us get attached really easily that’s just how some people are and I think people are forgetting they are all with each other 24/7 so it’s different to the outside world.

“I for one would love for a guy to tell me how he feels instead all I get these days is having to guess someone’s intentions and that does no one any favours! Keep being you Luca.”

A second fan added: “Most genuine and funniest guy in there, love the way he is with Gemma shows how much he cares for her. Luca and Gemma to win.”
