What’s go­ing on in Gemma Collins’ love life?

So many men, so lit­tle time

It would take a strong man to sur­vive a re­la­tion­ship with Gemma Collins and, while we’re just not sure any­one’s up to the task, she’s cer­tainly been au­di­tion­ing a few men re­cently.

The GC re­cently sparked spec­u­la­tion that she was back in pur­suit of her old flame, James “Arg” Ar­gent, when she re­cently went on Loose Women. Al­though she ap­peared on the show with 54-year-old Laurence – her ul­ti­mate pick from her time on Celebs Go Dat­ing – she firmly bat­ted him into the friend zone be­fore turn­ing her at­ten­tion to an in­vi­ta­tion from Arg. Gemma re­vealed to the au­di­ence that Arg, 30, had just asked her out on a date, “He ac­tu­ally rung me ear­lier and he was like, ‘Gem, can I take you on a date tonight?’”

Clearly a dif­fi­cult of­fer to refuse, the for­mer cou­ple were pic­tured out in Es­sex shar­ing a curry that evening – and the date seemed to go re­ally well. The next morn­ing, Gemma posted an In­sta­gram story, show­ing she was snug­gled up in bed with a top­less Arg. She deleted the post 15 min­utes later, but not be­fore ev­ery­one’s tongues started wag­ging that the pair were back to­gether.

Gemma freely ad­mits she has feel­ings for Arg, re­cently say­ing, “It’s been on and off for six years and I’ve made it very clear that I’m ready for mar­riage and a fam­ily. He’s not and there’s no sign he will be any time soon.”

Both Gemma and Arg have con­fessed to oc­ca­sion­ally sleep­ing with each other – they even spent Christ­mas and New Year to­gether in Mar­bella. Gemma has gone so far as to talk about mar­riage and ba­bies with her ex, re­veal­ing, “I’ve loved Arg for many years and we’ve al­ways had a spe­cial con­nec­tion. We have a deep love for each other. I’ve even picked what our ba­bies’ names would be.”

How­ever, seem­ingly in a bid to con­fuse us, there’s another man on the scene – jail­bird ex-boyfriend, Stephen Mor­timer. Gemma was spot­ted with him in a lux­ury ho­tel on Valen­tine’s Day, ap­par­ently clutch­ing a bot­tle of Cham­pagne and en­quir­ing about spa treat­ments. The pair dated for six months in 2015, be­fore he cheated on her, and were also pic­tured to­gether last year af­ter he was re­leased from his sec­ond stint in prison.

As The GC put it her­self, “I’m 37, with no time to waste.” We think you might need to cast your net a lit­tle wider, Gem.

‘I’ve made it very clear that I’m ready for mar­riage’

Are Arg and The GC back to­gether?
