Gemma Clare Collins (born 31 January 1981) is an English media personality and businesswoman. In 2011, she began appearing on the ITVBe reality series The Only Way Is Essex. Following a brief appearance on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! (2014), Collins has appeared in various television programmes including Celebrity Big Brother (2016), Celebs Go Dating (2018), and Dancing on Ice (2019). In 2019, she began starring in her own reality series and hosting a podcast on BBC Sounds.
Gemma Collins has apologised to James 'Arg' Argent for sharing screenshots of their private conversation on social media. In the now-deleted posts, 32 year old Arg cruelly branded Gemma, 39, a "hippo", after she suggested that he bought another woman dinner, instead of her.
Arg reportedly told the TV star that he wanted an open relationship like actor Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, who recently opened up on being intimate with other people during their marriage, but the pair allegedly split over the question.
