However, the couple – who came second in this season’s Love Island are yet to make things official.
While Gemma had been adamant in the villa she needed her family’s approval before moving on with the fishmonger – she admitted she’s ‘still waiting’ for them to be boyfriend and girlfriend.

She explained: ‘In the future for sure, right now we’re all just trying to settle down with our new lives, but I think definitely.
‘Let’s be girlfriend and then we can talk about moving in together!’

And spilling the beans on Billy and Gemma, Jack revealed in a new interview that there was even more flirtation between the pair than people saw on screens.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Jack explained: ‘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 went on: ‘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.’
Jack’s claims comes weeks after Billy himself said that people had not seen all the flirting that went on between him and Gemma in the villa.
Billy insisted Gemma ‘got off lightly’ with what was shown between them, which resulted in a fall out between her and Luca who she is coupled up with.

‘Just all the flirting, you haven’t seen it all, they let her off lightly!’ Billy answered.
After watching himself back, Billy insisted he wouldn’t change any of his behaviour apart from maybe speaking to Gemma earlier than he did.
Billy and Gemma’s filtrations caused a huge fall out with Luca during the tense Movie Night scenes, with Luca’s anger later causing his family to issue a statement, remarking they didn’t ‘condone his behaviour’.
During a clip entitled ‘Good Bill Hunting’ Luca saw Billy Brown and Gemma chatting in the villa and thought the conversation was quite flirty.
Later that evening after the films aired, Luca pulled Gemma for a chat and said: ‘You were entertaining it’ to which Gemma replied: ‘No I wasn’t’.

Gemma interjected: ‘Did we have a flirty chat? Yes.’
Luca replied: ‘But just a minute ago you said you didn’t have a flirty chat, you literally said, ‘I wasn’t flirting.”
As the conversation continued, Gemma stood her ground and said: ‘I don’t think any lines have been crossed.’
Despite the drama, Gemma and Luca stayed together and finished up as runners up behind winners Ekin-Su Culculoglu and Davide Sanclimenti.
