The Love Island stars repeatedly filmed famous dads’ cat

This summer is the island of love featured a host of iconic and hilarious moments, but one particularly insightful moment was the conversation between Jack Keating and Gemma Owen about their famous fathers.

Keating is the son of singer Ronan Keating while Owen is the daughter of former Liverpool, Real Madrid and England footballer Michael Owen.

In a new interview with the Mail Online, however, Keating revealed that he and Owen were actually asked to reenact their conversation about their fathers several times on camera in order to get more coverage of the moment.

“I think the biggest and most surprising thing for me is how many times they have to build things if they want to get different shots, different angles, different conversations. They [producers] will ask you again to sit down and have the same conversation again and bring up the same kind of things. That’s what I thought was the most surprising thing,” Keating said.

“My conversation with Gemma that we were having about our dads, they asked us to go sit down and have the same conversation about our dads…I was like, ‘Oh my God. “”

Keating said the showmakers wanted to get more footage and angles of the conversation for coverage of the scene.

“They were just like, ‘Can you go sit by the pool again and chat about your dads?'” Keating said.

“I was like, ‘How are we going to get this conversation started again?’ It was definitely the most surprising thing, I think.”

Keating entered this year’s Casa Amor on day 26 at the villa, but was knocked out five days later after failing to partner with anyone. Owen, meanwhile, entered the villa on the first day and fared much better in the end.
