When asked whether she wants to have children, Gemma said: "I saw Jennifer Aniston last year put out a statement. She said, 'Don’t define me because I don’t have children yet.'

"And for someone who has felt so embarrassed for so long because I haven’t got the perfect set up, I haven’t got the children, I felt embarrassed about that in my life."

When asked if she would ever consider adoption, Gemma continued: "Madonna done it, Angelina Jolie done it, so listen there are so many options available.

"Without being rude, you could have a different baby every day of the week now."

Meanwhile, Gemma opened up about "everyday struggles" she faces in her life.

The Diva Forever star revealed it can sometimes be difficult putting on a brave face at work as she discussed her relationship with James 'Arg' Argent.

She said: "With Arg, obviously when we're on reality TV shows it's not always plain sailing.

Because I haven’t got the perfect set up, I haven’t got the children, I felt embarrassed about that in my life.

"People have their moments, Arg has his moments, I've had many a moment. But literally, we make great TV.

"What I'm very passionate about is not living - I think why I am such a success with regards to my shows and stuff, I don't give you an impression that my world's all rose tinted glasses, candy floss, sequins and glitter, because let me tell you, it's not.

"I have every day struggles like everyone else, we have relationship problems, there's stuff that happens.

"Last week, three people in our family had heart attacks, but we still have to turn up for work, and we still have to put a smile on when we come through the door.

"We're not always in the best of moods."

Gemma also discussed her 'GC' alter-ego and compared her to Paul O'Grady's drag persona Lily Savage.

She explained: "GC is a brand now, and it's how I make my money, to be honest ... 100 per cent [there's a distinction], definitely.

"Gemma's here today, but GC, I've become one of the biggest reality stars in Britain.

"I am a global icon, it's weird. But that's the GC - and that's what I do, I make great TV, I provide you with entertainment. I kinda explain it to people, it's like Paul O'Grady and Lily Savage.

"It's how I make my money."
