Gemma Collins shocked the nation when she quit I’m A Celebrity 2014 after just three days, prompting wide-spread criticism, and even Lauren Goodger has slammed her decision now.
The former TOWIE star has used her magazine column to slam the 33-year-old’s decision to quit the jungle after just 72-hours, labelling her experience a “Wasted opportunity”.
28-year-old Lauren, who took part in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, used her column in new! Magazine to tell Gemma a few home-truths.
Lauren said: “I think it’s such a shame that Gemma quit the I’m A Celeb jungle so early.
“I’m not being mean because I love Gem, but what a wasted opportunity. I think she might regret it one day.”
Lauren just might be right, as Gemma had competition from co-stars Jessica Wright and Ferne McCann to follow in the footsteps of Strictly Come Dancing’s Mark Wright.
However, she wasn’t done there, as she blasted Gemma’s inability to last on the small portions of food in the camp, saying: “I know the jungle is different from Celebrity Big Brother, but I went without proper food for days in the house and you just have to get on with it.
“I admit I couldn’t do the jungle, but you know what you’re signing up for with shows like this! It’s such a shame.”
But, it was only earlier on today that it was revealed that Gemma had been eating 5,000 calories a day before she went on the show – which might explain why she had so much trouble adjusting to the tiny camp meals.
And, while Lauren’s criticism comes from a friend’s perspective, others have not been so forgiven.
The ever-opinionated Katie Hopkins was one of the first people to lay into Gemma, with the ‘gobby one’ even making numerous jokes about Gem’s weight on Twitter.
Lauren might have to take things very carefully when dealing out advice to Gemma though, as the reality star has claimed she’s “traumatised” following her trip to the australian Jungle.
