Gemma Collins “scared for her life” after believing she’s spotted troll outside her Essex home

The terrified TOWIE star said she hasn't left her house since Saturday

Gemma Collins has said she is “scared for her life” after claiming a man who shouted cruel abuse at her last year was seen hanging around outside her Essex home this week.

TOWIE star Gemma was forced to call the police after she was left too terrified to leave her flat.

Gemma, 38, uploaded numerous videos and pictures of the troll, who she claims is the same man that called her a “fat [bleep] pig” last year, sitting in his silver car in her car park and also chatting on the phone as he walked past her window.

A third picture shows two police officers talking to the man while he sits in his car just outside her home.

A worried Gemma wrote to her Instagram followers: “Do you all remember that shocking video of two boys horrifically abusing me well I am now petrified for my life.

“He has now found my home I am scared for my life.”

“I am so grateful for how amazing the police have been I am actually scared for my life.”

Gemma claimed he had “been here since SATURDAY why would you abuse someone then find out where they live and make them petrified I can’t leave my home through FEAR.

She added: “I don’t feel safe and I feel very THREATENED and UNSAFE.”

The TV star claimed the man had told the police he was waiting for an appointment but hours later he was still outside her house.

Gemma, who recently split from boyfriend Arg, believes it’s the same person who cruelly hurled vile abuse at her in the street last November.

Reminding her fans of the run-in, she uploaded the disturbing video of them yelling at her.

She was sat with two friends outside a cafe in Brentwood, Essex, when two men drove past and shouted at her, “Gemma, you fat [bleep]. Eating again are you, you fat [bleep] pig.”

Gemma’s posts were inundated by concerned messages from her followers, while former TOWIE star Charlie King told her it was “time for the gated mansion”.

It’s been a rough few weeks for the TV personality, who just split from TOWIE boyfriend James ‘Arg’ Argent after he posted an unflattering video of her snoring online and then sent her a series of nasty messages about her weight.

Though pals close to the star reportedly say the pair could reconcile after Arg issued a grovelling apology.

A source told The Sun: “They’re talking again over the phone and things are moving in the right direction.

“There’s no doubt they will reconcile – they love each other too much for this to be the end.”
