NW - - Reality Weekly -

She’s cur­rently work­ing on her moves, train­ing two hours a day for the UK ver­sion of Danc­ing On Ice – but in the mean­time, Gemma Collins has joined the celeb­filled Christ­mas edi­tion of Bri­tain’s All To­gether Now to belt out a tune! So what’s left for the reality star to do but find her­self a girl group?

With the Spice Girls re­u­nit­ing for their UK tour in 2019 – with­out Posh, Ph and d with i hs Scary Spice S i in­jured – Gemma, 37, has found a golden op­por­tu­nity. Yep, she’s de­ter­mined to join the ’90s hit mak­ers! Here, the TOWIE babe re­veals how she’d make the per­fect Spicy ad­di­tion af­ter per­form­ing for judge Geri Horner – aka Gin­ger Spice – on the All To­gether Now spe­cial...

Why did you want to take part in the spe­cial?

I wanted to meet Geri – and I love singing. From the minute I wake up, I burst into song. I sing mak­ing tea. I sing mak­ing toast. I walk into work and I’m singing. Ev­ery­one’s had enough of me, I’m sure! All of Es­sex has heard me singing out the car win­dow.

How did you feel about fac­ing All To­gether Now the panel?

Very V ner­vous, b but Ij I just wanted d to go out there and en­joy it. I wanted to give it ev­ery­thing I’ve got from my heart to match my soul. [It was] my mo­ment – I was singing to a Spice Girl. If me and Geri be­come best friends, then maybe I could be the new Spice Girl!

Were you wor­ried about none of the ‘100’ panel singing with you?

Very ner­vous. It’s such a daunt­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, but life is about fac­ing your fears – and this fear was so much fun to em­brace.

Who are your favourite singers?

I love Dolly Par­ton and ob­vi­ously I love Whit­ney Hous­ton, Mariah Carey and Madonna. All the di­vas! But to sing in front of Gin­ger Spice is a mo­ment that will go down in his­tory for me. She’s a real leg­end – a queen. I Ih thought, h ‘If Gin­ger Gi Spice stands up for me, I’m go­ing to cry my eyes out from now un­til forever­more with hap­pi­ness.’

You’re a huge fan of Geri?

No-one gets how much I love her. I even dressed up as her once at a fancy-dress party. It’s kind of crazy – I dress up as Geri, and then I get fa­mous my­self and peo­ple dress up as me!

Have you al­ways dreamed of be­com­ing a pop star?

Of course, ev­ery girl dreams of that! I’d sing with my hair­brush in hand... I’d sing to the point where peo­ple would tell me to be quiet. Ob­vi­ously, a lot of peo­ple ask me what I want to do next – well, I’d love to be on the West End stage for one night only!

Gemma says: ‘You gotta get wwith my friends!’ ‘I’ve al­ways been posh’
