Her family has been directly affected by COVID-19

And on her Diva in Lockdown series she lamented that she’d been unable to find her ideal new home.

Unfortunately it has indeed been a very challenging few months for the reality star.

Both of Gemma’s parents, Alan and Joan, tested positive for COVID-19.

And Alan has been hospitalised with coronavirus for a few weeks now.

However, Gemma says there is hope on the horizon.

Speaking on the latest episode of her BBC podcast, she explained: “I have had such a distressing time due to both my parents having COVID.

“I finally got a call from the doctor to say that my dad has been keeping really stable and he is coming down off of his breathing mask.

“We are hoping to have him home with us next week.”

What’s more, Gemma is also mourning the loss of her former TOWIE co-star Mick Norcross.

The TOWIE star passed away last week at the age of 57.

Gemma posted a moving tribute to the former nightclub owner on Instagram.

She penned: “ALWAYS A GENTLEMAN. Absolutely shocked and saddened by the news my thoughts and prayers are going out to Kirk family and friends absolutely tragic #ripmicknorcross.

“The memories of the early days [at] the Sugar Hut and the wonderful filming parties you put on will never be forgotten.

“You never know what someone is going through you were one of the good guys.”
