Occupation: Plus size clothes shop owner and designer and former car saleswoman
About: Gemma is a confident lady who speaks her mind (through a series of footballer-like clichés 'you know', 'it's one of those', 'at the end of the day', 'not being funny'). She is looked up to by her female friends and slightly feared by the male of the species.
TOWIE tree: Daughter of Joan Collins (no, not that one) Gemma went from unlucky in love - baking Mick an apple pie and declaring her love for Arg - to being a full on minx as she entered into a Titanic romance with Charlie, whilst badgering Ricky with some sexy texting.
We all thought she’d found love with Mr. Boom Boom himself, Rami, but she left him and got with Arg in Marbs! Their fling lasted a few months before trust issues got in the way and Gem made her way back to Rami. Well, that relationship didn't last long either! Rami was said to have knocked her confidence, so what did she do? She had rebound 'fun' with Arg in a bush and at a murder mystery retreat.
Of course, the real love of Gem's life is Bobby. No, not like that! BFF Bobs moved in with Gemma, but, like a moth to a flame, Gem went back to Ramiagain, so Bobby moved out to give them space. Gem and Rami went on to get engaged and then split... again. They've split more times than Arg's overly small jumpers.
Of course, as Gem seems to have her life set to repeat, she then had more casual sex with Arg. We will never look at a cupboard in the same way again. Gem was then distraught to hear Arg had slept with Lydia, but claimed the tears were over the beauty of Billie's baby, Nelly. Sure they were, Gem. Sure they were.
Gem took a little break to go visit Australia and returned to throw Ferne under the metaphorical bus. She claimed Ferne had said things about Danni behind her back. Another friend bites the dust! Her fallings-out are firmly behind her - Gemma's an Essex Buddhist now and at one with the world with the EX-ception of her ex. Sometimes Gem is quite happy being single and other days Gem wants to get back with the ex, get married and have his kids (because she's, "34 years old, Bob!").
