Partnered with Matt Evers, she showed her diva side by sleeping during rehearsals. She also hit the ice mid-routine and fell out with now-departed judge Jason Gardiner.

Gemma was thrilled when he quit the show, calling it "karma" after he said she lacked elegance on the ice and likened her to a "fridge".
