Love Island new man Jacques O’Neill has hinted he’s entering the mansion to settle his past – and win back his ex, Gemma Owen.

The 23-year-old Professional Rugby League player dated Michael Owen’s daughter for 12 months before they split last year.

And the Castleford Tigers star – who has been released by the club so he can “pursue another opportunity” – said he still has feelings for Gemma, 19.

When asked why he was on the hit ITV2 show, Jacques said: “I broke up with my ex and then I met someone else.”

Jacques, who has been plagued by a hamstring injury, added: “I was focused a lot on my rugby career and then I had that injury.

“I think it has to be the right person, at the right time. But the other day I told my mother that I wanted a girl. And now I’m ready to settle down.”

Love Island favorite Gemma Owen proved to be very popular with male contestants



Fans will see Jacques make the pitch at the villa tonight – to the surprise of Gemma, who proved a huge hit with other Love Islanders.

On Friday, she reunited with angler Luca Bish, 23, and she was being pursued by Italian stallion Davide Sanclimenti, 27. But Jacques made it clear he wouldn’t let an opponent get in his way. He brags that he’s “not worried” about stepping on anyone’s toes and will go for what he wants.

The contestant confidently added: “I think I’m a catcher. We all think we’re a predator, don’t we? I am loyal, I am respectful and I have good manners. I will take care of those close to me as much as I can. ”

He also revealed that he wants to be a father, saying: “I will have a baby in two or three years. I think I will also be good with babies, won’t they be handsome? ”

Jacques and Gemma broke up last year, but it is believed that the two still have a good relationship. Professional costume rider Gemma talked about her ex on the show.

She told Liam Llewellyn – who decided to leave the island this week – that Jacques and her British ace father have been very close and bonded together because of their shared love of sport.

Our source said: “There is definitely unfinished business between Gemma and Jacques. They still have feelings for each other, so it will be hard to stay in the mansion together and just be friends.

“They broke up because they were both focusing on their careers. Gemma has been away from home a lot for costume competitions while Jacques has dedicated herself to her rugby career. But there wasn’t any bad blood between them. It is not the right time. “

Despite his good looks, Jacques denies he is a “playboy” and admits he would fall if he met the right girl.

He said: “I love and I have so much to give. I don’t text a lot of girls on Instagram – my text chat sucks. I want to meet someone out there and fall in love with them right away.

“However, I fell pretty quickly. I really know if they will be my girlfriends within a week or not.”

Jacques said he intends to bring some fun to the mansion, but he warns Gemma and the other Love Island girls that he won’t work too hard for anyone’s affections.

“I am very straightforward,” he said. I’m not bashing around the bush, but it’s all about the good vibes. I always bring laughter.

“But I’m not going to try to impress people – they either like me for who I am, or they don’t. I will not try to make someone like me. But when I’m with a girl, I want to make them feel special. ”

The Castleford Tigers yesterday said they would have the first option of re-signing Jacques if he continues his rugby career.
