In a tweet from 2014, Steve called Gemma a “beach hut”.
The unearthing yesterday of the offensive tweet provoked Gemma into a response.
And, captioning an image of her wearing a bright pink swimsuit, she said: “I’ve had a few people this past week [hands-in-the-air emoji] month [hands-in-the-air emoji] ten years in spotlight be rude to me about me [hands-in-the-air emoji]…
“Firstly I’m sorry my bright light reminds you of how miserable you are and secondly…
“Y’all need to all remember who the F I IS [hands-in-the-air emoji].”
Tilly comments ‘disgusting’
Gemma continued: “I was so upset about the targeting of @tillyramsay and then I got attached to the story because of someone being cruel about me…
“… and do you know what guys it does upset you when it gets brought to light, all day yesterday it was covered …
“Is the radio station going to deal with this?
Furthermore, she said: “Everyone vote this weekend and get behind @tillyramsay, what’s gone on is disgusting.
“Unless you can match what I’ve achieved don’t even bother…
“… having to relive the cruel comments yesterday really has got my day off to a vulnerable start but don’t worry.
“I’ll get up and at them today, do my work and do it for everyone who puts up with any sort of [bleep] in their life! X”
Gemma finished the response by saying that she got where she is today through “hard work and respect”.
