Like never heard before, Gemma Collins likes to say it as it is. The ‘Diva Forever’ star suggested her openness about “everyday struggles” is what makes her so appealing and relatable, and she revealed it can sometimes be difficult putting on a brave face at work as she discussed her relationship with James ‘Arg’ Argent.
She said: “With Arg, obviously when we’re on reality TV shows it’s not always plain sailing. People have their moments, Arg has his moments, I’ve had many a moment. But literally, we make great TV. What I’m very passionate about is not living – I think why I am such a success with regards to my shows and stuff, I don’t give you an impression that my world’s all rose tinted glasses, candy floss, sequins and glitter, because let me tell you, it’s not.”
“I have every day struggles like everyone else, we have relationship problems, there’s stuff that happens. Last week, three people in our family had heart attacks, but we still have to turn up for work, and we still have to put a smile on when we come through the door. We’re not always in the best of moods,” Collins said.
