Nervous Gemma Collins is “throwing up constantly” ahead of Dancing On Ice

Jitters are getting the better of her

The nerves have well and truly kicked in for Gemma Collins ahead of her Dancing On Ice debut this weekend as she’s revealed she can’t stop being “sick”!

The Only Way Is Essex star shared her anxieties on her Instagram stories this Friday (4 January).

In one video the 37-year-old asked her driver to pull over because she felt she was going to throw up with nervousness on the way to training.

Talking to her driver, Perrie, she confessed: “So me and Perrie have heart to hearts on the way to training. I’m petrified.

“I keep telling Perrie to pull the car over because I need to be sick”.

In another clip, Gemma told her professional skating partner Matt Evers that she’s resorted to carrying a bucket around with her in case she gets caught out by her queasiness!

She told him from behind her camera: “Two more sleeps and I’m throwing up constantly. I’ve got a bucket. I won’t show you what’s in it…”

It comes after Gemma told her showbiz pal Jonathan Cheban that she hasn’t been “eating” ahead of the show.

The US star sent her a message of support on Instagram but she told him there would be no fancy dinners when he landed in London to support her!

Despite her shakiness, the Essex girl has been getting stuck in behind the scenes on the ice and managed to give a sneak peek of the performances ahead of Sunday’s first show.

Sharing a snap through the iconic DOI entrance tunnel, she said: “I’m going to get in trouble for this…they’re filming…”

Earlier this week, GC’s diva side was out in full swing when she refused to make her DOI entrance to the The Vengaboys’ pop hit We Like To Party.

She joked in a clip posted to her Instagram: “I’m leaving the show”.

Let’s hope you don’t need your bucket on Sunday, Gem!
