35-year-old Gemma quit TOWIE back last summer, which she later revealed was due to the cruel comments she would receive about her appearance.

At the time, Gemma shared that ‘all the abuse on social media was a big reason [for me quitting]. People think I’m tough as nails but I’m soft as s**t at the end of the day. I understand I came across as a b**ch the way it was edited but I didn’t deserve all the abuse’.

It’s official. We’ve got the blues.
