Gemma’s baby plans

Gemma Collins tells Now about her and boyfriend James ‘Arg’ Ar­gent’s baby plans – and why she’s in a spin over glam­ming up on Danc­ing on Ice

Now (UK) - - COME ON IN... -

Gemma Collins and James ‘Arg’ Ar­gent have been on and off more times than we can re­mem­ber since they first got to­gether on

TOWIE back in 2012.

But the cou­ple are stronger than ever, with Gemma hav­ing sup­ported Arg, 31, dur­ing his re­cent stint in re­hab, and even re­veal­ing that they’re se­ri­ously talk­ing about hav­ing chil­dren. It sounds like we could def­i­nitely be hear­ing the pit­ter-pat­ter of tiny lit­tle diva feet once Gemma’s fin­ished her stint on Danc­ing on Ice this year, es­pe­cially as she’s ad­mit­ted that she and Arg are no longer us­ing con­tra­cep­tion...

Speak­ing to Now, Gemma, 37, laughs, ‘Me and Arg are al­ways horny, dar­ling! We’re hop­ing for a baby to­wards the end of this year. After Danc­ing

on Ice, we’re go­ing to have a bloody good hol­i­day. We’ll go to Dubai and Mal­dives, and we’re go­ing to have a good break and see what hap­pens. We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to it!’

It’s no sur­prise that the se­quins and sparkles of Danc­ing

on Ice are right up Gemma’s street, and when we meet up with her at re­hearsals she’s done up to the nines in her cos­tume, with a full face of glam make-up and her hair as big as ever. ‘I was born glam­orous, dar­ling,’ she says. ‘Nor­mally I tone it down, but this is the one show I’m like, “Just do the hair a bit big­ger, give me a bit more lip­gloss.” I’m lov­ing bein­gon the show be­cause I think, for us TOWIE girls, when we were first on the se­ries it was all about the big hair and big make-up – very Es­sex – and then the more fa­mous we got, ev­ery­one ex­cept for me tried to tone it down a bit. But I was like, no. So be­ing back on this show is like old-school TOWIE days.’ Gemma also tells us she’s lost at least one dress size since she started re­hearsals in Septem­ber last year.

‘We’d like a baby by the end of this year’

‘I’ve started shrink­ing. I’m los­ing it in places I didn’t think it would come off,’ she adds. ‘It’s like a fat freeze!’

Although scep­ti­cal fans were con­vinced she’d hate Danc­ing on Ice

and quit be­fore the show even started, Gemma is prov­ing the doubters wrong, and in­sists she’s gen­uinely lov­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence.

‘When you’re on the ice, no-one can get to you,’ she ex­plains. ‘So you’re out there, you’ve got the ice and you’ve got your part­ner and the whole world kind of stops. It’s good, it’s fun. We’ve all worked so hard and that’s why I think there’s no bitch­i­ness, there’s no com­pe­ti­tion. Ev­ery­one here ap­pre­ci­ates what each one of us has been through. We’ve got a re­ally good sis­ter­hood go­ing. We have a laugh.’
