The son of Ronan Keating and former Love Islander, 23, said during his stay in Casa Amor, he witnessed a growing bond between the duo.
Fans of the dating show were aware of the undeniable chemistry between the pair after Movie Night exposed this to her partner Luca Bish. And now, Jack has said there was more that fans didn’t see.
Speaking to the Daily Star, he said: “From what I saw in our villa in Casa Amor, I know Billy and Gemma got on really well.
“I know that he came back into the main villa, with Movie Night, and things got very awkward between the three of them. But those two definitely vibed big time.”
He continued: “I wouldn’t say it was legit-legit but there was definitely some more going on, definitely, it’s kinda hard to say.
“I mean, yeah, there was definitely more flirting going on and some of the lads were like ‘woah’ at points, but it wasn’t too serious where you could actually see them cracking on but there were definitely some moments where you were like Billy and Gemma, you never know, you never know.”
While Jack himself didn’t find love in the Majorcan villa, he hasn’t given up hope as he recently exclusively told OK! he’s set to star in another series based on love.
Speaking to OK! at the launch of The Cabins star Bertie Garratt’s clothing range, he said: “Hopefully I’m going to appear in another TV show in the next couple of weeks. It’s a dating show, that’s all I can say. Fingers crossed that goes well.”
He added: “I’ve done Love Island now so I feel like I can do every other dating show.”
The star entered this series’ villa in Casa Amor and was filmed revealing to Gemma Owen that his dad was Ronan Keating from Boyzone.
Though Gemma and Jack never pursued anything romantically, they appeared to get on well as they bonded over both having parents in the public eye – Gemma’s being footballer Michael Owen.
