Gemma Collins strikes up an unlikely friendship with Love Island bombshell as they party together at her Essex home


GEMMA Collins has struck up an unlikely friendship with one of the Love Island bombshells as they partied together at her Essex home.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star took to her Instagram stories to reveal that she and Nathalia Campos were spending time together as she invited her over to her sprawling house.

Nathalia enjoyed a day at the “GC mansion”

Gemma, 41, filmed Love Island bombshell Nathalia, 27, as she posed in a small lace gown in her kitchen as she gushed over her.

The social media influencer swayed back and forth in the light green gown, as she chatted away to Gemma’s mum Joan.

The new-found friends were joined by a group of pals, as music blasted in the garden as they enjoyed the weekend sunshine.

“Fresh out of the Love Island house, she’s at the GC mansion,” Gemma could be heard saying as she filmed Nathalia.

“Getting showbiz advice from mother – what are the key things that you’ve been telling her, mum?”

Her mum Joan, 66, went on to offer up her advice, saying: “To be very proud, to walk with her head high and her shoulders back.”

“Just be true to yourself honey and take them big pay cheques,” Gemma then continued.

She went on to film a video of them together, adding: “I’m with the queen of the Love Island villa – this girl is a supermodel.”

It comes after Gemma revealed that she’s back on a drip after pushing herself too hard in the heat.

Gemma was seen pottering around her garden as the sun rose on Wednesday morning, as she revealed her garden full of fruits and vegetables.

With the clock showing 5:38am, the Diva Forever star walked around her impressive fruit and vegetable patches by the fence.

But the Essex favourite may have overworked herself, as hours later she shared a snap of her attached to a vitamin drip.

Earlier today, Gemma took to Instagram to reveal she’s getting up for her “new job” at 5am.

“Good morning everyone,” she could be heard saying on the Instagram stories video, as she followed her cat.

“Yes, it’s early. But I have to get up early to get all my stuff done for the day. Check on my vegetables, I am so excited.

“My tomatoes are growing – but even better, I started growing pumpkins and look at them already. So if you need a pumpkin at Halloween you can come to me and get one!”
