Gemma Collins has said that her “birthday dreams have come true” after Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt revealed he’s a fan.
Just don’t tell her boyfriend James ‘Arg’ Argent that!
During an interview with Josh Smith for Glamour Magazine, Chris – promoting The Lego Movie 2 – was asked if he’d heard of Gemma.
Surprisingly, perhaps, the megastar famous for Jurassic World and Guardians Of The Galaxy, admitted he was a FAN!
He said: “The GC, she’s a real star. I mean I love that show [The Only Way Is Essex]. I watched it when I was out here shooting years ago. Got hooked on it.
“I’d be a little starstruck if I met Gemma.”
When the interviewer explained that Gemma was taking part in Dancing On Ice, and had recently taken a fall, Chris sent what appeared to be a genuine message of concern.
He said: “And she fell hard? Did she hurt herself? Oh no! Is she okay? Oh Gemma, I’m so sorry darling.”
A thrilled Gemma couldn’t help but send a heartfelt message back to the actor, who recently got engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger.
She posted on her Instagram page: “Wow my birthday dreams have come TRUE @prattprattpratt thank you for your lovely messages and ive got you 2 tickets to come and see me on @dancingonice.”
It remains to be seen whether Chris will find time in his busy schedule to sit in the Dancing On Ice studio audience.
Many of Gemma’s 1.2million followers responded to her message, with one writing: “I’ve never been more jealous of the GC.”
“Get in there girl, he’s a dish!” said another, while a third added: “Sounds like Mr Pratt has a soft spot for the Gemma! Big fan of you both. I’m so jealous!”
Chris has previously impressed TOWIE fans with his Essex impressions on The Graham Norton Show.
Appearing on the chat show in 2015, he admitted he and his then wife Anna Faris loved “garbage TV” and had watched TOWIE while shooting Guardians Of The Galaxy in London.
