Gemma Collins has been a busy girl recently thanks to her BBC podcast and launching her own clothing line.
Last night's episode (3.11.19) saw the reality start re-enter the fray by having a catch-up meal with two of her best friends, Chloe Sims and Bobby Norris.
As the pair were walking down the street a Bentley pulled up alongside them.
The window was wound down and inside was Gemma, who told her mates: "Get in the motor, let's go. Ruby Murray, us three, couldn't be better than that, banter in the Bentley!"
I think they could feel my presence as I walked in the restaurant.
When they were having their Indian meal, Gemma reminisced about the good old days and told her pals how life had changed for her.
"Forget Marbella," she beamed, "I'm more south of France these days."
And when she described sitting in the same restaurant as Elton John, David Furnish and Victoria and David Beckham, Chloe asked if they acknowledged Gemma.
"I think they could feel my presence as I walked in the restaurant," Gemma replied.
Gemma then insisted on Facetiming Bobby's new boyfriend, Matt.
"How does it feel to be speaking to me, The GC?" she asked.
Gemma's army of fans took to Twitter to register their delight at her appearance.
One viewer wrote: "Just watched you on TOWIE and it was just great to see The GC back if only for a short time.
"You look so happy Gemma.
"Long may it continue hun."
