The Only Way Is Essex is about to get a whole lot less sassier as Gemma Collins is taking a break from the show following a HUGE row with Vas J Morgan during The Only Way Is Marbs.
Not only are we seriously trying to resist making some sort of ‘The Only Way Is A Break’ joke (oh, whoops), but we’re actually pretty sad that the show is losing such a entertaining character.
According to reports, the entrepreneur was removed from Marbella filming after storming off partway through a fight with Vas.
It’s also rumoured that she told producers she feels ‘too big’ to be on the show anymore, as she HAS got her very own, very successful plus-size clothing range.
A show source told The Sun: “Gemma hasn’t been enjoying filming scenes for the show as much as she once did. She told bosses that she was fed up that they kept putting her in confrontational situations.
“After her row with Vas she threw a massive hissy fit — and the producers bore the brunt of it. As she left she threw a glass of champagne in the direction of the bosses.”
They added: “Gemma has built up a successful brand and her plus-size clothing range is doing really well. She feels that she can be a big star without the show and the stress that comes with it.”
However, despite claims that she was suspended from the show, it seems it may have been a mutual decision.
A spokesman for TOWIE’s production company Lime Pictures confirmed: “We are currently not filming with Gemma Collins.”
Gemma’s own rep also told The Sun that she’s “taken a break from TOWIE filming to focus on some personal commitments.”
So there you go.
It’s not all faded fake tans and a lack of reem-ness for Gemma, with rumours circling around that she’s looking to appear on Celebrity Big Brother to redeem herself after *THAT* I’m A Celebrity disaster.
Just don’t put any bugs, mud, or helicopters in the house, and she’ll be just fine.
