Love of her life and her TOWIE beau James ‘Arg’ Argent didn’t let her brave the storm alone as he supported her appearance on the red carpet. 

The reality queen was every inch the diva when she made quite the performance of lifting up her dress to put her legs on display.

GC ensured everyone was talking about her entrance as her dress was made up of a sparkling sequinned bodice and a big billowing skirt for dramatic effect. 

Gemma’s long-running alleged feud with Holly all started when the presenter called the GC out on leaving the Dancing on Ice show early — something GC claims bosses said she was allowed to do.

Phillip had been making catty comments about the star ahead of her appearance on the ice skating show as he claimed it would be a ‘miracle’ if she turned up.

Meanwhile, Gemma has found it difficult holding her tongue when she has received  criticism from judge Jason Gardiner which has now seen them locked in a feud. 

Having been at the centre of a media storm, Gemma also come under fire from Loose Women panelist Coleen who branded her ‘rude’ for her treatment of Jason. 

Gemma’s appearance comes after it is said to have been locked in an argument with DoI judge Jason and hit out at Holly behind the scenes on Sunday’s show. 

As reports surfaced surrounding her behaviour, she went on to thank her fans for their support following a ‘tough week’ on Dancing On Ice.


No drama here! Gemma beamed brightly and waved to the cameras as she didn’t let her feuds stop her from making the ultra glamorous entrance in heels

Alongside an Instagram video of host Piers Morgan praising her on Monday, the TOWIE star penned: ‘Thank you to everyone who supported me its been a tough week @thepiersmorgan @gmb #teamcollins …. #next …. #boring.’ 

A source told The Sun: ‘Gemma was furious backstage — but so was Jason. They’re both very strong-minded so there was no chance either of them would back down after the show.

‘Behind the scenes the atmosphere is even more toxic now… Two of the most prominent people on the show are at war.’

It has also been reported that Gemma is yet to receive an apology from Holly after she called the reality star ‘unprofessional’ during her DOI appearance.

Insisting she’s focusing on her stint, an insider told the publication: ‘Gemma hasn’t got an apology from Phil or Holly yet, but she’s happy to let it go and concentrate on the skating now.’

MailOnline contacted representatives for Gemma, Jason and ITV for further comment. Sunday’s instalment of Dancing On Ice saw judge Jason branded ‘a bully’, with the show receiving 80 complaints after its transmission.

Gemma stood up to Jason after he called her ‘more Anna Nicole Smith than Marilyn Monroe’ during her performance with partner Matt Evers.

Jason’s scathing remarks – which also come after Jason went to The Sun to badmouth TOWIE’s Gemma earlier in the week – were met with a wash of criticism on Twitter, with viewers calling for the talent show judge to be fired over it.

The National Television Awards mark one of the most exciting nights in British TV, with faces from reality, scripted drama and comedy, soaps and quiz shows hoping to scoop a gong.

Held at London’s O2, 2019’s shortlist sees the likes of Killing Eve, Bodyguard and The Cry battle it out as some of the most talked-about new shows of the past 12 months.

Other nominated newbies include Robbie Williams for his maiden turn as an X Factor judge, and Jodie Whittaker for her incarnation of Doctor Who – the first time a woman has ever played the role.

Jodie will battle it out against the likes of Killing Eve leading ladies Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer, as well as Bodyguard stars Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes.

These shows crop up in the fledgling New Drama category, freshly launched this year.

In the Best TV Judge category, David Walliams, Louis Tomlinson, Judge Rinder and Simon Cowell will square off against Robbie. 

As is the case every year, the UK’s favourite soaps – Coronation Street, EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoaks – will be pitted against one another in the Serial Drama category.

Soap actors Bonnie Langford, Danny Dyer, Emma Atkins, Jack P Shepherd and Lucy Pargeter are all gunning for the Serial Drama Performance gong.  

Also a recurring fixture, Dermot O Leary will present the ceremony – with last year’s Love Island winners Jack Fincham and Dani Dyer hosting the backstage reactions.

In what is perhaps a shock to some, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are nominated for the Best Presenters category – a prize they have taken home every year since 2001.

The pair, however, have spent the majority of the past 12 months apart professionally, thanks to Ant’s recovery from pain killer addiction. Dec continued his work on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, Britain’s Got Talent and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! without Ant – yet they are up for an award as a twosome.

Ant will return to these shows in 2019 however. 

The annual Bruce Forsyth Entertainment Award will see both Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fight All Round To Mrs Brown’s, Love Island and The Graham Norton Show for perhaps the most prestigious accolade of the evening. 

The Comedy category features several shows that have either aired or are currently airing their last ever seasons this year: Benidorm, Peter Kay’s Car Share and The Big Bang Theory. They will be up against Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father and Mrs Brown’s Boys.


Rude: Phillip had been making catty comments about the star ahead of her appearance on the ice skating show as he claimed it would be a ‘miracle’ if she turned up

ITV steal the show when it comes to the Daytime category, with Good Morning Britain, Loose Women, This Morning and The Jeremy Kyle Show on the shortlist. The only non-ITV programme in that category is Sunday Brunch, which airs on Channel 4.

Factual Entertainment progammes The Great British Bake Off, Gogglebox, Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of Dogs, Ambulance and DIY SOS: The Big Build are battling it out for an accolade.

Quiz shows Catchphrase, Pointless, The Chase, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown and A League Of Their Own are hoping to win, while the Talent Show award is being coveted by Britain’s Got Talent, Dancing On Ice, Strictly Come Dancing, The Voice UK and The X Factor.

The awards, which look certain to be the most exciting and closely-fought yet, hand over power to the viewers, who have been voting since October.
