She's also been prepping her skin - visiting a beauty salon for an LA Glow Peel, hoping it would make her look "ten years younger."

The salon shared a clip of the star mid-treatment on social media, with Gemma commenting on the post: "I looked a million dollars after."

But not all the prep is beauty treatments and tassels - the star was also forced to call in the physio, after last minute practice left her with a pulled muscle.
