Gemma Collins has revealed that she and Naomi Campbell hit it off when they met for the first time last year – even though the former TOWIE star somehow managed to out-diva one of the most legendary supermodels in the world.
During the latest episode of her ITVBe reality show Diva Forever & Ever, Gemma exhibited some typical GC behaviour which included shutting down a Chelsea boutique so she could go on a spending spree, and promising every passenger on board her Wizz Air flight a free drink on her (then promptly redacting the offer when she worked out how much it would all cost).
Later, Gemma was seen getting ready for a photo-shoot in Crete with a bit of help from a makeup artist, who it emerged had previously worked on The Jonathan Ross Show.
And The GC was keen to make it clear - even to Naomi Campbell - who was the head diva in charge.
“I liked her, I had a laugh with her when the cameras were off,” Gemma revealed. “She went to me, ‘honey, DM me on Instagram and give me your number’.
“I thought, ‘Naomi, darling. I don’t give anyone my number. It was nice meeting you today but… I’m The GC, babes. DM me your number’.”
Suffice to say, it doesn’t sound like we should expect Naomi Campbell will be making a cameo appearance on Diva Forever & Ever any time soon…
Capitalising on some of her viral moments, Gemma recently unveiled a new line of merchandise, although it was swiftly pointed out that one of her sweatshirts featured an unfortunate typo.
