Fellow TOWIE star blasts Gemma Collins over I’m a Celebrity exit

Gemma Collins left the I’m a Celebrity Jungle after only three days, and it seems it wasn’t only the public that were disappointed by her exit.

Now, her TOWIE co-star Lauren Goodger has blasted her choice to quit the show in her new! column, calling it a wasted opportunity: “I think it’s such a shame that Gemma quit the I’m a Celeb jungle so early … I’m not being mean because I love Gem, but what a wasted opportunity … I admit I couldn’t do the jungle, but you know what you’re signing up for with shows like this! It’s such a shame.”

Somehow, we can't imagine Lauren in the jungle – but we also wouldn't be surprised if she signed up to replace poor Gemma!

Lauren's harsh words come only a day after it was reported that Gemma's dad said he knew his daughter would be unable to complete her time in the jungle: "I could see the way Gemma was the moment I saw her on screen. As a parent I just knew."

Gemma's decision to leave the jungle is thought to have come from stress she was under before leaving England, when her ex-boyfriend was arrested at her home following a disturbance

We're sure something like that is something you need time to get over, rather than entering a reality TV show known for its harsh living conditions!
