And her 390k followers, were quick to question whether the Essex lady had finally found Mr Right with one asking: ‘Who’s this mystery man?? @gemmacollins1’.

So who is this secret man?

Well, it looks like Gem’s holiday pal isn’t going to be her future hubby as it turns out the man in question is Rhys Alan Smith, who just so happens to be former co-star Harry Derbidge‘s ex-boyfriend.

Harry and Rhys dated briefly back in 2013, but now the 24-year-old lives in Tenerife and Gemma flew out to spend a bit of time with her BFF.

No romance for these two, then!

Former CBB housemate, Gemma recently visited a fertility clinic but was left heartbroken when it was revealed she can’t freeze her eggs as the count is too low.

But after shedding a load of weight and flaunting her new holiday bod on Instagram, the reality star now looks happier than ever.

And despite the revelation that Gem’s mystery man is just a pal, we hope that she finds ‘The One’ soon!
