A third wrote: "Gotta say, I loved Gemma Collins - #DivaOnLockdown the things she comes out with are hilarious! Seriously needed a good laugh last night... Thanks Gemma!"

She would put the country right.

And some viewers loved it so much, they called for the GC to be put in charge of the country while Britain continues to fight the deadly coronavirus.

"Finally watching #DivaOnLockdown," said one. "Actually love the GC

@missgemcollins. I vote Gemma for next prime minister, she's just amazing tbh."

"Petition to sack Boris and the government and make @missgemcollins the PM," demanded another. "She would put the country right and save the environment too xx #DivaOnLockdown."

GC for PM

Someone else simply tweeted: "The GC for PM!!!! #DivaOnLockdown."

Gemma revealed the decision to continue filming her reality show Diva Forever in spite of the pandemic earlier this month.

On Instagram, the former TOWIE star promised her legions of devoted fans they would still be getting "100 per cent authentic GC".

"I'm being filmed and I've also got the producers speaking in my ear so if it sounds as if I'm talking to myself," she explained in a post about the new series.

"Well, maybe sometimes I am. I can guarantee though, what you see will definitely be 100 per cent authentic GC. I hope it cheers you up in these difficult times."

Diva On Lockdown appears to be one of the few pandemic-format programmes to have completely won viewers over, with others including The Graham Norton Show having come under fire.
