TOWIE's Gemma Collins on Arg and current boyfriend Rami

Gemma Collins mystified many TOWIE viewers with her fixation on ex James ‘Arg’ Argent but some of the steamy passages in her autobiography Basically… make it all a bit clearer.

Gemma, 32, says that the physical connection between them was so strong that at times their love life resembled raunchy novel Fifty Shades of Grey.

‘What we had was exciting, racy and very real,’ she says. 

‘What he experienced with me because I’m an older woman meant he had the time of his life.

‘I believe that’s why he hasn’t met someone else since.’

Gemma tells Now’s Dan Wootton she once overheard Arg, 25, telling pal Mark Wright: ‘I just had the best sex of my life with Gemma.’

‘He loved the fact I’m so confident sexually,’ Gemma says.

‘Arg likes to be led and I’m happy to be the leader.’

Nevertheless, their relationship didn’t work out and Gemma is now happy with businessman Rami Hawash, 37.

‘People can be sexually connected but still can’t fulfil one another in other ways in a relationship,’ she reveals.
