IT'S OFFICIAL: TOWIE'S JAMES' ARG' ARGENT HAS TOLD GEMMA COLLINS 'I LOVE YOU'!
It's the never ending love story of TOWIE. And now Arg has revealed for the first time he's got genuine feelings for Gemma - and even told her he loves her!
'I’ll be honest with you girls, I’m sure you’re well aware, me and Gemma have been spending a lot of time together recently,' Argh told Kaye, Nadia, Stacey and Linda.
'In the past I kind of always put Gemma second. I always treated us two as a bit of a laugh, a bit of a joke and stuff.'
The on-off couple for the past seven years are giving it another go - and this time it sound like it's the real deal.
'The last few months have gone by and I’ve kind of realised, do you know what? I do have some really strong feelings for her,' Arg said. 'When I’m not with her I miss her a lot. When I am with her we’re constantly laughing and getting on. I clearly fancy her. We’ve had many kisses and cuddles over the years. It’s definitely more than friends. Maybe I’ve been in denial and a bit confused… a bit of an understatement.'
When Nadia asked Arg if he holds Gemma's face and says he's in love with her he replied, 'Yeah, I do!' You heard it here first -IT'S LOVE!
INSPIRATIONAL SARAH MERRIMAN AND HER DAD ANDY JOIN US ON WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY
Andy and his daughter Sarah joined Ruth, Kelly, Janet and Linda to talk about her life with Down's syndrome.
Andy recently wrote a book, A Major Adjustment, about his daughter's journey as an adult. So they joined us on World Down Syndrome Day to discuss Sarah's life.
'When she was born it was a total shock to us,' Andy said. 'I suppose you think about what's going to happen when we're not around, what she'll be able to achieve and how she'll be treated.'
And Sarah, 26, spoke to us about her job as a waitress, having a boyfriend and living independently. 'I work in the centre of London as a waitress in a hotel,' Sarah said. 'I've got a boyfriend called Leon and live in sheltered accommodation with a friend. It was so sad to leave my parents behind but I know they're always there.'
Andy explained when Sarah left home she told her parents, 'I love you but I don't need you.'
'Sarah's a fantastic role model but for other people it's more difficult,' Andy said.
Down's syndrome is a genetic condition where the person has an extra copy of chromosome 21. It can also cause learning disabilities and there are certain medical problems which are at an increased risk of developing. There are approximately 40,000 people in the UK with Down's, with around one in every 1,000 babies born in the UK having the syndrome.

ALEXANDRA BURKE PAYS TRIBUTE TO HER MUM AND OPENS UP ABOUT GRIEF
After performing her new single, The Truth Is, Alexandra bravely opened up about the death of her mum as well as facing her Strictly Come Dancing critics.
Talking about the song she wrote as a tribute to her mum Melissa Bell who died in August 2018, Alexandra was visibly upset saying, 'I don’t want her spirit to go away. I wrote that song before she passed, so she heard it at least.'
Melissa was diabetic and suffered kidney failure for more than nine years before her death. And Alexandra paid tribute to her saying, 'She was so positive, so strong and gave everything to life and everything to the family. I always say to myself, if she can, I have no excuse to stop. I love to work, it comes from her. I do enjoy what I do.'
Asked about being criticised for being emotional on Strictly, Alexandra said: 'It was really difficult. That’s what I miss about Strictly, feeling the carefree part of it. For those 90 seconds on stage you can’t think of anything else and I miss being that carefree. It was a blessing at the right time, a massive distraction for me.'
'I’ve thrown myself into work since Strictly. Some may say it’s not healthy and I know that literally everyday I have been doing something towards the album or in the studio. I’m frightened to stop. I’m not going to lie. I am.'
