Gemma Collins takes swipe at on-off boyfriend Arg after his ‘fat-shaming’ messages

He recently apologised for making comments about her weight

Gemma Collins has got her own back on James ‘Arg’ Argent after his ‘fat-shaming’ messages.

Arg recently apologised after sending Gemma a string of text messages apparently calling her a “fat lump” and saying she had “more rolls than Greggs” after she kicked him out of her house for sharing a video of her snoring online.

And now Gemma has poked fun at her on-off boyfriend after he was compared to Mrs Doubtfire.

Arg shared a snap of himself to Instagram alongside a picture of the fictional character, who was played by the late Robin Williams.

He captioned the post: “MRS DOUBTFIRE!!! What an absolute ringer! I thought it looked good in the mirror! #WhyAlwaysMe!?”

Gemma, 38, was amused by the post and ‘liked’ it, before adding a string of smiling emojis.

It comes after Arg apologised about his remarks about Gemma during an appearance on Good Morning Britain earlier this week.

Speaking about posting the clip of Gemma snoring online, Arg said: “We’ve had a tough time recently, I looked at Joe Swash and Stacey Solomon’s Instagram and tried to recreate that.

“But she was furious, I was kicked out of the flat, we got a bit personal.”

Host Susanna Reid said: “You sent her some pretty unpleasant texts about her weight.”

Arg replied: “I’m a hypocrite. I struggle with my weight, I’m the biggest I’ve ever been, Gemma looks the best she’s ever been. We were both were cussing each other, it didn’t mean anything.”

Piers Morgan then asked Arg if he’s going to propose to Gemma anytime soon.

Arg replied: “Things are definitely better. I love Gemma to bits and I think if we remain stable and we’re in a healthy place, then it’s definitely something I would consider.

“I do apologise again for anything that I said. I didn’t mean it, it was very childish.”

During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show at the weekend, Gemma said of her relationship with Arg: “It’s complicated. I’m sick of blokes. I’m sick of them. I’ve just had enough to be honest. My mum and dad have been married 45 years.

“I do love the person I am with very much but sometimes our work life gets in the way.”

She goes on to say: “We just went on a romantic trip to Paris and then paps turned up, he didn’t arrange it but we really needed some time out and it kind of killed the trip.

“It’s just hard sometimes but you never know what’s going to happen, things could be alright in the end.”

Following their split, Gemma and Arg flew out to Paris last week and appeared to rekindle their romance.
