‘Getting there’

Gemma also had some family support from her dad Alan, who popped in to visit her.

According to reports, Gemma has recently had to slow down on her wellbeing routine after suffering with polycystic ovary syndrome.

However, she told fans earlier this month she would not moan about being unwell.

“Literally knocked me for six and I feel so stressed as I got so much to do but I just have to allow it,” Gemma said on Insta.

“The most important person is me and my health so I’ve just got to allow it.”

ED! has contacted a representative for Gemma for comment.
