The Sun revealed that the 19-year-old, who has her own swimwear range, is thought to have got her fiercely protective dad’s blessing to go on the dating show.
A source said: “Gemma isn’t just beautiful, smart and single, but she has one of the country’s best-loved sports stars as her dad.
“ITV bosses are scrambling to get her signed up for this year’s Love Island.”
Hunky Joshua Legrove looks set to head to the villa after catching the eye of producers with his jet set lifestyle and impressive boxing career.
A TV insider told The Sun: “Joshua is a perfect fit for the show. Bosses are hoping he’ll follow in the footsteps of boxer Tommy Fury, who was a huge hit.

A source close to the show said: “Ekin-Su is the perfect contestant to get viewers tuning in this summer.
"Not only is she beautiful, she’s also used to being on TV and moves in showbiz circles so she’s sure to bring fireworks.”
