EXCLUSIVE: ‘How are we gonna get this conversation going again?!’ Love Island’s Jack Keating reveals chat with Gemma Owen about famous dads was filmed MULTIPLE TIMES for producers
Jack Keating has revealed he was asked by Love Island producers to re-enact a conversation with Gemma Owen about their famous dads multiple times on-camera.
Ronan Keating’s son, 23, who appeared on the latest ITV2 series’ Casa Amor segment, claimed he was ‘surprised’ when show bosses got him to repeat his chat with the 19-year-old daughter of footballer Michael Owen.
He exclusively told MailOnline: ‘I think the biggest, most surprising thing for me is just like how many times they have to build things if they want to get different shots, different angles, different conversations.

‘The [producers] will ask you again to sit down and have the same conversation again and bring up the same sort of things. That’s what I thought was the most surprising thing.’
The reality star – whose mum is Irish model Yvonne Connolly – continued: ‘My chat with Gemma we were having about our dads, they asked us to go sit down and have the same chat about our dads… I was like, “Oh god.”
When quizzed about reasons behind the request, he replied: ‘They just wanted to get some more footage pretty much, I’m not really sure, more angles or… I’m not really too sure to be fair.
‘They were just like, “Can you go sit down by the pool again and have a chat about your dads.”

‘I was like, “How are we gonna get this conversation back going again?” That was definitely the most surprising thing I think.’
Last month, Jack revealed he regrets not trying to pursue a relationship with Gemma while on the show.
The Dublin-native said he would’ve tried to start something with the dressage rider but for the fact that she was already coupled up with Luca Bish.
Speaking to MailOnline, he said: ‘We definitely had a lot of things in common – she’s a lovely girl but from chatting to her I could tell she and Luca were a closed door, so it was pretty tough.

‘If she was single I would have 100% tried to pursue things. She’s a gorgeous girl and I think we got on very well.’
He added: ‘I also got on well with all the other girls, especially Paige and Tasha. They didn’t show a lot of me and Paige, which was weird and I wondered why they didn’t.’
Jack also revealed he had been in the ‘doghouse’ with his famous dad, after saying on the show that the singer was retired.
Speaking on what Ronan had said to him once he got home, Jack said: ‘He just said that he was proud of me. I didn’t really go in there and make a fool out of myself thank God.

‘I did say he was retired though at some stage during the show, so he was not happy about that.
‘What I meant to say was he was retired from Boyzone, but he was touring right now, but I basically said he was retired, so I was in the dog house a little bit when I got back after that.
‘“I almost fell out of my chair,” is what he said when he heard it, but we’re all good. We had a bit of craic after when I got home for sure.’
