TOWIE star Gemma wants to join Celebrity Big Brother

When Gemma Collins waved goodbye to TOWIE to enter I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, she lasted a shameful few days. However, she did say she wasn’t in the best place following a violent break-up with her ex Alex Moss.

But now, the rumour mill is rife claiming that the larger than life reality TV star, 34, is keen to join Celebrity Big Brother, despite previously turning down the show.

According to reports, Gemma, is said to be considering a slot on the popular Channel 5 show after TOWIE producers suspended her from filming after throwing a hissy fit.

But her chances of mixing with a string of fellow celebs under the watchful eye of Big Brother could be hanging in the balance as sources have claimed that she wants a six-figure sum but bosses are only prepared to offer five figures.

A source told The Sun: ‘Gemma has previously been quite vocal about how she turned down CBB to stay on Towie. But that was before she was suspended from the show and now everything has changed. She is looking at CBB as a way back to telly as well as showing Towie bosses just what they are missing. But it all comes down to money.’

Apparently, Gemma’s suspension came after a string of rows with show producers and allegedly throwing a plastic glass of booze in the direction of a producer while in Spain.

It’s not yet known how long Gemma will be off air for following her suspension, but insiders told The Sun that if she’s allowed to return for the new series in October, that will leave her with enough time to do CBB which launches in August.
