Gemma Collins gets a bizarre makeover ahead of new TOWIE series

The cast have gone back in time...

She’s become the queen of TOWIE and now Gemma Collins has been given a regal make-over to promote the new series.

The 37-year-old has been dressed up as an Elizabethan monarch in new promo shots, complete with a pearl crown and ruby embellished bodice.

The outfit is quite a departure from Gemma’s usual style but is all in aid of a fun trailer with a Shakespearean theme to advertise the latest series of the reality show.

Gemma, who recently revealed she’s lost a stone in weight, wasn’t the only member of the cast given a Tudor makeover.

Her on-off Romeo James ‘Arg’ Argent looks like he ready to take to the stage at The Globe in his garb, while Bobby Norris poses with a skull to replicate the famous scene from Hamlet.

Lauren Pope and Georgia Kousoulou also managed to look as glamorous as Gemma in their Tudor gowns with corsets that flaunt their curvaceous figures.

Also transformed into Shakespearean players with the help of ruffs, peasant shirts and puff sleeves are Yazmin Oukhellou, James Lock, Pete Wicks, Tommy Mallett, and Diags.
