Michael Owen has somehow forged a post-playing career as a pundit despite potentially being the world’s dullest man and offering nothing insightful, so it was always going to be interesting to see how he would react to his daughter appearing on Love Island.
For those fortunate enough to have avoided the long-running “dating show”, the contestants take part in weeks of programming that makes you think “the parents must be proud” as it gradually gets worse and worse.

Unfortunately for Michael, it’s likely going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better too.
