The shocking news, which broke earlier this week, revealed text messages from Marcel to another girl asking her for 'day sex' whilst Gabby worked out at the hotel gym.

After previously deleting all trace of Marcel from her social media, Gabby has now thanked fans in an emotional statement posted to both Twitter and her Instagram Story. She wrote, 'Thank you to everyone for your kind messages, love and support. It's been a tough couple of days, i think i might be in a bit of shock! But i'm sure in time i will be ok. i have the best family and friends around me. I'm a lucky girl.' [sic]

After sharing the message, Gabby's friends and fans were quick to show her further support.
