Fishmonger Luca Bish, 23, has shaken this year's Love Island villa with his charming good looks, cheeky one-liners and ounces of charisma.

The Love Island star from Brighton currently has his sights set on football legend Michael Owen's daughter Gemma Owen, 21, as things heat up between the Gen Z's.

Luca, outside of the villa and alongside degutting fish at his local fisheries, the future influencer, has had his hook in many different pools with ties to some rather notable celebrities.

From an EastEnders icon to a former Strictly Come Dancing star, Daily Star takes a look at Luca's celebrity network.

Strictly's Saffron Barker

Luca revealed that he dated Strictly Come Dancing 2019 star Saffron Barker for a few months before entering the Love Island villa.

Saffron, 21, attended the same school in Brighton as the fishmonger, and after growing close, they enjoyed a brief romance.

The former couple appear to still be on good terms, with YouTube star Saffron wishing him luck as he got set to enter the villa earlier this month.

A cosy Instagram snap of Saffron and Luca was recently unearthed, with the duo looking loved-up as they cuddled in bed together.

EastEnders Patsy Palmer

Before he made his way into the Mallorcan villa, EastEnders legend Patsy Palmer, who played Bianca Butcher, took to Instagram Stories to share his official promo photo alongside a positive message.

She penned: "Omg @lucabish all grown up and going on @loveisland. We cannot wait to watch you.

"You will smash it so beautiful, kind & funny. Yay from your Malibu crew."

Luca revealed in a chat that Patsy is actually a friend of his family.

He said: "She's just a really close family friend.

"Obviously, she's in Malibu now so not as close but she's a very close family friend. My parents are always calling her back and forth."

Influencer Sophie Floyd

Before stepping foot in the villa, Luca was previously dating MUA and tattoo influencer, Sophie Floyd.

Luca and Sophie, 22, dated for four years and in a YouTube video shared six months ago, she revealed her sudden breakup was like a grieving process for her.

The tattoo artist, who has over 356,000 followers on Instagram, admitted that things became tricky in the final few months of their relationship.

She confessed that they had a beautiful connection and therefore cannot say a bad word about him.
