Gemma Collins’ fans praise her adorable dad as she shares video of him

She thanked him for his support after tough week

Gemma Collins has melted hearts with a sweet video of her dad Alan, revealing how well he looks after her and her mum Joan.

Gemma has been spending more time with her parents after Joan fell ill with pneumonia.

The TOWIE star shared the video of her mum and dad today (28 February) and informed fans that Joan was getting better.

The 38-year-old posted a video to her Instagram Stories, which showed her brushing Joan’s hair as her dad, Alan, kissed them goodbye.

Her dad sweetly gave Joan and Gem a peck on the cheek as she said: “Love you dad.”

Alan could then be heard telling them he was off to run errands, calling out: “I’ll be back as soon as I can.”

Proving he is a doting dad, he then told Gemma he had sorted out her car tax for her!

Gem hastened to add that she didn’t ask her dad to do it but she feels “very lucky” for how well he looks after her.

The Dancing On Ice star also posted a sweet tribute to her parents on Instagram and praised her father.

She started by gushing about her dad: “71 years old still goes to work everyday … he’s 🌱 VEGAN he’s got so much ENERGY and most of all he looks after my mum very well ….. MARRIED 42 YEARS ❤️…. lucky to have such a wonderful dad and mums on the mend thank you for all your lovely messages ……. ps …. dad I’m not 18 anymore I can pay me own car tax 😝 but thank you 😊💗 …. full video on live story 💗(sic).”

Fans rushed to tell the reality star how sweet they thought Alan was!

One of her followers commented: “I love ur dad 💕.”

Another wrote: “I think your dad’s amazing but rare to find nowadays 💋,” while another added: “Lovely man x.”

In her video, Gemma was giving her mum a little pampering session to cheer her up as she told everyone “she’s on the mend.”

Gemma has had to deal with her mum’s illness on top of her recent break-up from James ‘Arg’ Argent.

The former couple cut ties at the weekend after James posted an unflattering video of Gemma snoring on social media and later sent her nasty messages about her weight.

According to The Sun, Arg branded her a “fat lump” in the texts.

Gem has since been spending more time with her family and friends.

She had a break from life in Essex and went to stay with her pal Dawn Ward in Cheshire, where she then filmed a cameo for The Real Housewives of Cheshire.

But now rumours have begun circulating that Gemma and Arg are set to reunite, after he made a grovelling apology following their bust-up.

A source told The Sun: “Arg has apologised and knows he was in the wrong, he’s absolutely gutted he’s lost her – they’ve both accepted they are hurt by everything that’s happened, but ultimately they want to be together.”
