MICHAEL OWEN was able to raise a smile as he arrived at Ascot for the races – just hours after daughter Gemma admitted that she would “lick” a horse’s bum because it was “clean”.
The shocking comment came as the girls were playing a game of outrageous questions in last night’s episode of the ITV2 hit show Love Island.

Viewers quickly went into meltdown, and no doubt too the former Liverpool and England striker, who has already had to face questions over his daughter’s reality TV antics while working as a pundit.
However, the 42-year-old was spotted arriving at Royal Ascot earlier.
And despite this latest furore, the race horse owner was able to smile for the cameras as he rocked up suited and booted.
Gemma’s latest controversial remarks came when Afia asked the girls a question about whether they would “lick a pig’s bumhole” for £2000.

While it was a resounding no from the group, Gemma quickly piped up, admitting she would only put her tongue near a horse’s posterior because her beloved animal is very “clean”.
“I would do a horse’s arse, a horse’s arse is clean,” she insisted.
“But it’s humongous,” said Paige.
“Yeah but they only eat grass really,” countered Gemma.
