Another dramatic week for the GC...
The TOWIE star was asked to leave the ice after her behaviour was deemed too ‘disruptive’ by pro ice-skater Hamish Gaman.
After arriving at the ice rink refreshed from a morning of pampering at a spa, Gemma joined her partner Matt Evers to run through their routine for this Sunday’s performance.
Sharing her entrance on her Instagram story, Gemma can be heard excitedly screeching and waving at co-star Brian McFadden.
She then stops him in the middle of the rink for a chat, thrilled to hear he is remaining in the competition after his future was in doubt due to a back injury.
But her loudness didn’t sit well with her other co-stars who were trying to rehearse their routines – especially Saara Aalto’s partner Hamish, who asked her to leave the rink.
‘Prince of the ice is telling me I’m being a disruption and have got to go,’ Gemma said into the camera.
‘Sorry darling. Sorry Saara Alto. I gotta go.’
Gemma later returned to the ice with Matt after the other celebrities had finished for the day.
It hasn’t been a smooth ride for Gemma since she joined the DOI line-up, with her apparent ‘diva’ behaviour causing drama backstage.
It all started when host Holly Willoughby slammed her for delaying rehearsals by taking an afternoon nap.
She then had an almighty row with judge Jason Gardiner, accusing him of ‘selling stories on her’ after he branded her ‘lazy’ in an interview.
And who could forget when she fell flat on her face?
And more recently, it was revealed by Brian that she is often booted out of the DOI WhatsApp group for ‘diva’ behaviour.
Brian said on Good Morning Britain earlier this week: ‘She gets removed when she’s rude. She can be a diva to all the ITV people, but when she’s a diva to us she gets blocked.’
We wonder what drama this weekend’s show will bring…
