    Viewers of the National Television Awards were left cringing at their telly screens as football legend Michael Owen gave his Love Island star daughter a strange demand on-stage.

    Gemma Owen was presenting the award for Best Serial Drama Performance alongside her sports star father after she rose to fame on the ITV2 dating show earlier this year.

    But things soon went rather wrong, as Michael hissed instructions into her ear as she clutched the envelope.

    "Open it, Gemma!" he hissed as she prepared to read the results aloud.

    And fans picked up on the tension right away, turning to Twitter in their droves to point out the bizarre interaction.

    One fan wrote: "Erm These NTA Microphones are well sensitive. Michael Owen telling Gemma to open the nominations."

    "Everyone after watching Michael Owen tell Gemma how to open an envelope," another viewer added, with a bemused Family Guy GIF.

    As someone else echoed: "Loving the way Michael Owen had to give Gemma instructions how to open an envelope!" with a string of cry-laughing emojis.

    "Michael Owen having to give Gemma instructions on what to do the entire presenting of this award oh my god," another posted.

    While a fifth said: "Gotta love Michael Owen giving Gemma instructions like he’s prime Kenny Dalglish!"

    But it appears Gemma was enjoying the experience of walking the red carpet with her dad instead of with boyfriend Luca Bish, as she told Daily Star: "It's really nice to be able to walk the red carpet with my dad, it sort of takes some of the nerves away.

    "its really exciting."

    When asked if they would be interested in doing a reality show at home called the Owens Gemma teased: "Never say never."

    Her dad Michael laughed and said: "That's a good idea."
