Gemma Collins made a major impression on Hollyhwood hunk Chris Pratt during her time on TOWIE and Big Brother. 

In an interview with Glamour, the actor said he knew of the reality TV queen, saying:

;The GC, she’s a real star, I love that show. I watched it when I was out here shooting years ago. I got hooked on it.'

He also said he was a big fan, admitting: 'I’d be a little star struck if I met Gemma.'

The journalist interviewing Pratt asked the actor if he knew of Gemma's now notorious faceplant on lat week's Dancing On Ice.

Not having heard of the show, he expressed his concern: 'Stop! And she fell hard? Did she hurt herself? Is she ok?” he asked.

'Oh Gemma, I’m sorry darling.'

Gemma was delighted with Chris' comments, posting a video of the interview to her Instagram page.

Taking the message as a birthday wish, she wrote: She posted: 'Wow my birthday dreams have come TRUE'

'@prattprattpratt thank you for your lovely messages and I’ve got you 2 tickets to come and see me on @dancingonice.'


TOWIE OG and former Big Brother and I'm A Celebrity contestant Gemma Collins is confirmed as the first contestant for the new season of Dancing On Ice.

The queen of memes gave her fans and followers the news via Twitter and Instagram. 

Richard Blackwood was also confirmed for the show.

Speaking on This Morning, Gemma shared her fears about appearing on the show. 

''I know how hard it is, I've done my research. I am scared and nervous.' 

'I don't know how they're gonna lift me up and how fast I can get around the ice… I really want to give this a go.'

The show is due to air in January 2019. 

Stars like Love Island‘s Wes Nelson and Rylan Clark-Neal have been rumoured to appear on the show. 



Due to popular demand, global online retailer boohoo.com is delighted to announce it’s second collection with reality television personality and digital influencer Gemma Collins introducing swim & beach attire.

Gemma has rapidly become an aspirational figure within the fashion and beauty industry.

With the first GC x boohoo.com collaboration being a popular sensation Gemma, our brand ambassador is back and this time the collection encompasses all sizes from a 34-52.

In true Gemma Collins style, the campaign was photographed in Essex’s holiday hotspot, Marbella.

Is love in the air for Gemma Collins?

It certainly seems so if her latest Instagram posts are anything to go by.

On Wednesday night, the blonde beauty shared a picture of her heading out on "date night."

The reality star took to the social media again this morning to share a picture of her holding hands with the mystery man.

She captioned the cute picture: "Early morning road trip with [heart emoji]."

She then added a few hashtags: "#happy #romanticgetaway #excited."

Even though she didn't reveal who her new man is, we're glad she's found some love in her life.



As Sunday's episode of TOWIE aired, viewers were shocked and called Gemma Collins out on her rude manner while she was on the phone to a customer.

The boutique owner then took to social media last night to slam her fans, calling them "haters," and revealing there was actually no one on the other end of the phone line.

The 35-year-old uploaded a snapshot of a positive review of her boutique in a bid to squash rumours she ran a bad shop.

She posted: "Just want to clear up … TOWIE the other night as you know it's a TV show …

"When we was filming the phone went and it was an advertising company cold caller to which I said call back in one hour …As it was NOT A CUSTOMER ….

"We have an amazing customer service ethic and haters gonna hate but truth is my shop is expanding on many levels and I love what I do customer service is key as being a car sales girl back in the day I'm sick of people trying to knock my amazing boutique which is fun friendly and excellent customer service X."

This isn't the first time Gemma has been called out on her rude attitude though. As we all know in Celebrity Big Brother, people were raged by how she acted towards other people and her TOWIE co-star James Lock also said she was "the biggest liar in Essex."

We just hope that was a cold caller and she doesn't act like a diva in real life.


We know she's a bit of a diva (understatement of the year), but we didn't think she's charge people – children included – £12 (€16) for a selfie.

The Big Brother contestant, who has majorly shocked fans with her antics in the house – refuses to take photos with fans for free. 

Alex Sibley, who was a BB contestant in 2002, took to Twiiter to share a photo about Gemma's behaviour. 

The tweet said, "Gemma Collins charged my friend's daughter £12 for this selfie."

After Alex shared the tweet, a number of other users hopped on the bandwagon and started telling their stories of similar experiences:

We just can't help but LOL at this. 


It seems that Gemma Collins just can't stay put in the Big Brother house for too long.

After she attempted to flee from the show yesterday, the reality star got into a spot of bother while she was preparing potatoes today.

As she was cutting the veg, Gemma accidently sliced her own finger. Ouch.

After the commotion, she was rushed to the Diary Room for preliminary treatment and was then transferred to hospital because she needed stitches.

"It's through to the bone," she panicked, as Christopher tried to help her.

She later returned to the house a little worse for wear, but is said to be doing OK.

With the rate that this show is going, it's a wonder if anyone will come out on top. 


I think we can all agree that this year's Celebrity Big Brother has most definitely not disappointed in the drama and entertainment stakes. 

From Jezza and Stephanie getting it on to David Gest's mistaken death, this year has certainly been top notch. 

And while we have already had one pregnancy announcement in the house from Kristina Rihannoff, it seems that Gemma Collins may well be getting in on that action. 

While we can never quite tell when Gemma is being sincere or not, she tells fellow house mate Tiffany Pollard that she is convinced she is pregnant and appears to break down. 

"I'm 100% pregnant. I know it, I know it, I know it," she says in a clip shown on Big Brother's Bit on the Side. 

"I'm excited but I'm nervous as well. I need a test." 

Gemma then proceeds to get emotional as she seeks comfort from her closest pal in the house, Tiff. 

If the 34-year-old reality star is to be believed, we can assume that the father of the child is her outside boyfriend, Stephan Mortimer. 

However, unbeknownst to Gem, her beau may not be there to greet her when she leaves the house as news broke that he has been told to return to prison for 28 days.

According to the Sun, Stephen had already spent two years in jail already on charges of "grievous bodily harm."

Let's hope this is just 'reality star' Gemma looking to create entertainment, and not a real pregnancy announcement because we can't keep up with all the drama. 

Watch a video of the confession below: 


It's back with a bang on Tuesday night, and now the contestants have finally been confirmed!

Channel 5's Celeb Big Brother is coming back with BANG as TOWIE'S Gemma Collins, Geordie shore's Scotty T, Kim K's BFF Jonathan Cheban and soap star John Partridge are all entering the house.

As well as that lively group, Strictly's Kristina Rihanoff, West End star Darren Day, troubled ex-Eastenders actress Danniella Westbrook, David Guest, Nancy Dell'Olio, Winston McKenzie, Angie Bowie and X Factor star Christopher Maloney are also set to enter the BB gaff.

And it's definitely going to be a battle of the TV stars this year as Megan McKenna, Stephanie Davis, Jeremy McConnell and Tiffany Pollard are also heading in.

With that extravagant mix, we can only wonder how adventurous the house will be this year! 


Well, that was fast.

The I'm A Celebrity camp is already one member down this evening with the news that Spencer Matthews has quit the show.

Spencer, who's no doubt used to a higher standard of living on Made In Chelsea, is believed to have exited the show this morning after just three days on set.

The MIC partyboy arrived Down Under on Tuesday, entering the competition as a late contestant alongside Vicky Pattison and Ferne McCann.

However ITV confirmed this evening that he was a gonner, citing "medical reasons" for his decision to quit. 

So soon was his departure from the show that Spencer had yet to even enter the main camp, as he was "banished" to Snake Rock shortly after his arrival.

Having completed his first Bushtucker Trial just yesterday – which involved sticking his head into a perspex box full of bugs – it seems the jungle life got the better of Spencer.

Before entering the house, the 29-year-old swore he wouldn't be quitting the show prematurely and wanted to see it out until the end.

"I’d like to be a finalist. I’d like to be there for the duration," he told The Mirror this week.  "That’s my main aim… I’d like to be one of the last people standing."

Of course, Spence isn't the only reality star to bow out of I'm A Celebrity after just a few days. Last year, TOWIE's Gemma Collins quit three days in, having spent most of her time in the jungle in floods of tears.

Gemma’s brief time in the Celebrity Jungle was characterised by ongoing – and usually totally irrational – fears relating to just about everything from helicopters to malaria.


Designer wardrobes, amazing cars and champagne-fuelled parties. These stars have come a long way from their humble reality TV beginnings, but just how do they afford the A-list lifestyle?

As part of its annual Reality TV's Richest list, The Sun has tallied up what many of the world's most well-known stars are worth – starting with a few you most definitely recognise from your hungover Sunday TV viewing.

Read on, and prepare to feel all the life envy.

Charlotte Crosby – €1.4million

It's been a very successful year indeed for Ms. Crosby, who has seen her worth soar since launching her own fitness DVD off the back of her extreme weight loss. Charlotte's 3 Minute Belly Blitz twice outsold Disney's Frozen in UK DVD sales when it was released late last year.

Add that to a €100k book deal for her autobiography Me Me Me, plus a €70k appearance fee for Ex On The Beach, and you've got a tidy sum building up in Charlotte's bank account. The Geordie Shore star has also appeared on The Xtra Factor, Britain’s Got More Talent, Celebrity Juice, This Morning and The Wright Stuff among other things.


Vicky Pattison – €2.3million

She might count Charlotte among her biggest rivals, but Vicky is definitely taking the lead in the money stakes. As well as a six-figure deal for her own clothing range with style site Honeyz.com, Vicky took home a reported €700k for a three-book deal with the Little Brown Book Group.

The Geordie Shore star has published an autobiography, Nothing But The Truth, plus two fictional novels, All That Glitters and A Christmas Kiss. Like Charlotte, she earned around €70k for her work on Ex On The Beach, and got close to €500,000 for her MTV show, Judge Geordie.


Millie Mackintosh – €4.2million

One half of Britain's most on-trend power couple, Millie wed rapper Professor Green in 2013. Like other entrants, she has raked in quite a bif of cash from her book deal – the Made In Chelsea star's lifestyle and fitness book Made saw her take home around €175k.

She also has her own self-named fashion line which sells via her personal site and on ASOS.com – and according to The Sun it's turning over in excess of €1.5m per year. The stunning blonde is the face of Nib & Fab beauty products and J20 fruit drinks, as well as having worked on campaigns for Pimm’s, St Tropez, Sure, Lipsy and Claire’s.


Gemma Collins – €4.6million

She might not be the most reliable of celebs – who can forget her dramatic exit from I'm A Celebrity... last year, after all – but Gemma certainly knows how to negotiate. Critics laughed when she decided to set up her own plus-size clothing range, but it's now sold via Littlewoods, Evans and her own personal site and generates around €1.7m a year for Emma.

Aside from her ill-fated time on I'm A Celebrity, Gemma also does regular work on This Morning.


Sam Faiers – €6.4million

Expectant mum Sam certainly won't be struggling to kit out her newborn in all the best designer clothes. As well as (you've guessed it) a book deal, Sam also rakes in a huge amount of cash from her various fashion ventures.

Among them is the Essex boutique she launched with her sister Billie, Minnie's Boutique, thought to be earning Sam close to €1.4m in online and in-store sales annually. The TOWIE alum has her own clothes deal with Very too, worth a reported €400,000.


Mark Wright – €7.4million

When your wedding alone earns you over €2million with Hello! you know you're doing well.

Mark's €400k DJing deal with Club Classics helps to play the bills, plus he also pulls in over €10k per club appearance – handy money for a night out. The reality star has recently signed a six-figure deal with Danone, too.


She sensationally quit last year after just 72hours – but Gemma Collins was still said to be desperate to give I’m A Celebrity another go in 2015.

However, her Aussie outback ambitions have now been thwarted: ITV producers have sensationally blocked her from participating.

And they’re citing medical grounds as the reason.

Yes, following the standard psychological screening that all potential contestants partake in, the former Towie star has been deemed “too vulnerable”.

And according to The Sun, she is pretty devastated by their decision.

“Gemma is gutted because she was desperate to give it another go,” a source told the paper.

“She’s in the best shape of her life but docs feared another repeat of last year’s early exit.

“Despite losing weight and brimming with confidence, they felt she still wasn’t strong enough to cope with the demands.

“ITV still want her to be involved with the show in some capacity. They think she’s TV gold.”

Gemma’s brief time in the Celebrity Jungle was characterised by ongoing – and usually totally irrational – fears relating to just about everything.

Indeed, at one point she believed she had contracted malaria and she was often filmed in floods of tears.

In a further blow, it is believed that Ms Collins actually turned down a place on the latest series of Celebrity Big Brother just so she could secure her place on I’m A Celeb.

With Louis Walsh already confirming he’s been chatting to producers about an appearance on the hit show, the potential I’m A Celebrity line-up for 2015 is already looking like one of the strongest yet.

Ant and Dec will, of course, front the show – and it will begin airing on an as-yet unconfirmed date next month.
