Gemma Collins has appeared to take a swipe at her ex-boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent as she says she's never fallen in love with anybody she's worked with.

The 39 year old met Arg, 32, when they were both working on The Only Way Is Essex, with their on-off love affair becoming a main storyline on the hit ITVBe show.

They briefly dated in 2012 after meeting him on the show before they endured a turbulent romance from December 2017 up until this summer.

Reality star Gemma made the dig on her new BBC podcast Gemma Collins' Love Lounge, discussing workplace romances with her listeners.

She said: "Personally I've never fallen in love with anyone in the workplace – I couldn't think of nothing worse. I went to work to work. I didn't go to work for love.

"Yeah, I mean, I don't put work and love in the same category and yeah, I can honestly say I've never ever, I can honestly say, liked anyone – fancied anyone – that I worked with.

"But I'm quite proud of that fact but I do know friends that have fallen in love with people in the workplace.

"Some people who I used to work with did fall in love in the workplace and went on to get married, but they'd always be arguing at work and to be honest it was very problematic, and I think that's what put me off.

"But I have witnessed that. I do know of people, again, that are carrying on with people in the offices, I hear it all the time and it goes on, we can't deny it."

She continued to joke: "I always say, what's meant for you won't pass you by, it's just that George Clooney hasn't realised that I'm the love of his life yet."

It was revealed earlier this week that Gemma has surprisingly been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Gemma has been put forward for the gong — which has previously been awarded to the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama —by the Romford Research Institute for Peace.

YouTube stars Josh Pieters and Archie Manners created the institute especially to put forward the nomination for Gemma, and it has been accepted by the board.

Archie, 27, said of their decision to nominate Gemma on the basis that she could solve the conflict in North Korea: "The GC has spent 39 years promoting peace and harmony across Essex – and beyond.

"If you look at what peace really means, take for example her on-off relationship with James Argent – no one died.

"It was a conflict that did appear to be resolved peacefully and we at the Romford Research Institute think this is a great demonstration of world peace."
