It comes after she and beau Luca Bish appeared in glum spirits as they headed home after filming Love Island's reunion on Thursday night following a row.

But Gemma was all smiles and had clearly put the tiff behind her as she settled back into her family abode after her stint in Spain.

And while several of her followers were quick to comment on how adorable the sweet moment, her dad was more concerned that he didn't feature in his daughter's latest post.

Gemma lives in the grade-II-listed manor in the Welsh countryside with her famous footballer dad Michael, mum Louise Bonsall, and three siblings Emily May, 14, Jessica, 12, and James Michael, 16.

The fishmonger, 23, who hails fromBrighton, has told how he is looking for somewhere to rent in the celebrity hot spot but won't be moving in to her family's estate.

He added: 'Just to be near her family I'll love. Hearing stories about her barbecues and stuff like that, I'm quite excited and I feel like I'll fit right in.

But despite planning on moving away, Luca still made a bid to convince Gemma to move own south as he shared a glimpse of his luxury abode on Instagram on Friday.

He shared an image of his stylish bathroom adorned with marble tiles and a large free-standing bath - with stunning countryside views seen through the window.

However, Gemma and Luca put on a united front on Friday, as the dressage champ finally shared a loved up of the pair following the filming of the Love Island reunion.

The Love Island runners up wrapped an arm around one another, as fishmonger Luca, 23, beamed for a chic snap with Michael Owen's daughter.

It marks the first photo shared of the couple together on Gemma's account in a week, after fans spotted an apparent snub towards Luca by her family.

The dressage rider's account handlers have avoided sharing any mention or photos of the fishmonger in the run up to the final.

Plans: While Gemma settled in at home, her beau Luca revealed he's planning on moving house to Chester to be near his girlfriend after they found love on the ITV dating show

And following Gemma and Luca's second-place finish, Luca's family were quick to congratulate the couple, posting a snap of them together with a gushing caption.

It read: 'Thank you SO much from the bottom of our hearts for all of the support you've shown this gorgeous couple. So excited to continue watching your journey from the outside. You really did win by finding each other.'

This was in stark contrast to Gemma's Instagram, which noticeably only posted solo snaps of the brunette beauty in the lead-up and following the final, with beau Luca noticeably absent.

Sharing a solo snap of Gemma clad in a nude ruched gown, her loved ones penned the caption: 'Words can't describe how proud we all are of Gemma.

'She has shown the nation how mature, honest and classy she truly is. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for all the love and support…Gemma is going to be SO overwhelmed.

'We are passing this back to Gemma now… We have loved running her account and being part of her @loveisland journey. We can't wait for what the future holds.'

Eagle-eyed fans at home were quick to notice this, and took to Twitter to suggest that Gemma's family were not overly fond of Luca and that they were doing 'damage control' to protect Gemma's brand.
