Love her or hate her, you’ve got to hand it to Gemma Collins – she really knows how to play up a storyline on TOWIE.
And this series she has really laid it on thick, stomping around Essex telling anyone who’ll listen that she wants to fall pregnant and start the family she has longed for for years.
And it would seem that she’s really tried her hardest to achieve that dream.
Not only did she sleep with Arg with the intent of getting pregnant, she also considered having her eggs frozen and even asked her gay ex Charlie King to help her out.
Now she has revealed that she is planning to get pregnant in Marbs.
Speaking to Bobby Norris during a trip to Amsterdam, Gemma filled him in about what was happening in her life and how things were going in terms of looking into fertility treatments.
As it was becoming a long process, she said she had decided to take things easy.
“You know what, I’m just going to tell you, I’m not actually going to come back to Essex,” she announced.
“I just think I’m not ready to make any big decisions yet about my life going forward and the fertility treatment and stuff like that.
“So I’m going to go to Marbella…oh my God! Can you imagine if I went to Marbella, had sex and got pregnant?”
Before Bobby, who was immersed in a bubble bath, could offer a sassy comeback, Gemma added, “I’d have to call the child Marbella!”
However, even from a man famous for wearing ludicrous and very revealing swimwear, Bobby told Gemma it wasn’t a such a great idea.
Gemma, who recently discovered she was not able to freeze her eggs because she had low egg count, says that since she went public about wanting to start a family, random men have come forward to volunteer their services.
“I’m in my shop and men are popping their heads through the door and they’re like, ‘Gem, do you want a baby?,” she told the Loose Women panel last week.
“And I’m like, ‘What are they thinking?’”
Gemma also told the girls that sometimes she blamed herself for her lack of baby success, admitting: “I did have a miscarriage, have I taken the morning after pill too many times. You just start beating yourself up.”
