LOVE Island’s Liberty Poole looked cosy with Towie star Roman Hackett as the pair left ITV’s summer party last night. Blonde bombshell Liberty looked great in a plunging neon green dress with a thigh-high split. While Roman beamed in a white shirt and heavily distressed jeans.
She’s been keeping a keen eye on shenanigans in the Love Island villa this series and took part in a fan Q&A on the subject this week. The 22-year-old revealed why we never hear the cast mention Gemma’s dad Michael Owen’s name.
The pair looked easy in each other’s company, sharing laughs as Roman wrapped an arm around Liberty’s shoulders. Earlier in the night Liberty had selfies with Towie’s Harry Derbidge and Dani Imbert, and hung out with Love Island alumni Kaz Kamwi, Chloe Burrows and Faye Winter.
At the beginning of the series fans were desperate to know if the beauty had told the rest of the gang about her famous connection. Ex-Islanders have since confirmed that she has spoken about her dad, and last week her partner Luca Bish, 23, made out that he knew about the ex Liverpool and Manchester United striker during their romantic date.
She said: “I think details about our family that we spoke about wasn’t aired due to privacy and we aren’t allowed if we do we get told not to talk about production.” But many viewers have been left scratching their heads why Michael’s name has never been mentioned. Liberty explained all during a Reddit ‘ask me anything’.
Earlier this month fans of the show shared why they think that Luca is “clinging onto” Gemma – and it’s because of her famous dad. Many flooded Twitter to speculate that it’s because the fishmonger is just keen to meet Michael.
Luca has stayed loyal to Gemma throughout his time on the show after coupling up with her on day five. “Okay but can we applaud this man for his dedication to meeting Michael Owen,” they wrote alongside a picture of Luca on Twitter.
A second added: “Of course he’s going to fake it ’til the show is over.” “Luca is getting ready to meet his idol,” a third said, as a fourth agreed: “Desperate for that signed t-shirt.”
