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' boyfriend James Argent cruelly branded her "a hippo" and a "fat f***" in a bitter war of words over texts. The reality TV stars' furious texts have been revealed as their on/off relationship came to an explosive end.
Gemma shared messages between the couple on Instagram, but the posts have since been deleted. The ranting texts began with Gemma saying: "What man pays for another woman!!!" Arg replied: "Insensitive," while Gemma continued: "And the woman that saved your life has to pay for herself!!!" Her ex then hit back: "You are supposed to be treating me you hippo." Revealing the moment Gemma called it quit, she wrote: "We're over." Sharing more screengrabs of their heated conversation, Arg sent her a plane emoji in reply.
