Love Island star Gemma Owen's ex Jacques O'Neill admits they split because he was concentrating on rugby too much | The Sun

LOVE Island star Gemma Owen split from ex Jacques O'Neill because he was too dedicated to his rugby career, he has claimed.

The professional sportsman will make his debut tonight after he was teased as the next bombshell on Friday night's episode.

The Castleford Tigers player, 23, left Gemma stunned when he walked into the villa, with her proclaiming: "Oh my god, it's my ex."

Speaking ahead of his arrival, Jacques said: "I split up with my ex and then I was seeing someone else. I was concentrating so much on my rugby and then I had that injury. I think it needs to be the right person, at the right time."

The hunk said he's not fussed in the slightest about stepping on toes and admits to falling in love easily.

He may be a bruiser on the field, but Jacques says he has a softer side and likes to make a girl feel special.

Not short of confidence, he added : "I’ll bring laughs. I’m very straight up – I don’t beat around the bush. Just good vibes. 

"We all think we’re a catch, don’t we? I’m loyal, I’m respectful and I’ve got good manners. I’ll look after someone close to me to the full extent I can.

"I would have a baby in two or three years. I think I’d be good with babies too, they’d be good looking wouldn’t they?"
