Gemma Collins has addressed rumours of a feud with Love Island star Amber Davies after reports claimed she “confronted” her fellow reality star in a nasty showdown at the BRIT Awards last week.

According to an onlooker, a “distressed” Amber had her night “ruined” after Gemma accused her of giving her “dirty looks” as they watched the awards ceremony together in a private box at the O2 Arena.

It’s thought it was Gemma’s first time coming face to face with Amber since the now infamous moment she fell through a trap door and onto the 2017 Islander and her co-stars Jamie Jewitt and Marcel Somerville at the Radio 1 Teen Awards four years ago.

“Amber isn't a confrontational person, so she felt out of her depth when Gemma came over to her at the BRITs.

“Gemma wanted to know why Amber had been giving her dirty looks, which made things very uncomfortable,” an insider told MailOnline.

They added, “Luckily, before tensions got any worse, Gemma left the awards early, but Amber still felt as though her night had been ruined.”

When Gemma paraded through the Big Brother garden with a Shetland pony

When the Celebrity Big Brother stars were asked what one-off luxury they would like to be treated to in the isolated house, what did Gemma ask for? Contact with her family? Nope. A pamper treatment? Not quite... No, the GC asked for none other than a Shetland pony - which she proceeded to dance with around the garden. While stroking the pony, Gemma exclaimed "I want pink ones with glitter in their hair".

When Gemma slipped during her Dancing on Ice routine

The 2019 series of Dancing on Ice is the gift that keeps on giving and poor old Gemma had viewers glued to their screens when she tripped over her foot and skidded across the ice. Ouch. The TOWIE queen soon picked herself up and styled through her ice-skating miss-hap. Jason Gardiner reportedly suggested that Gemma's fall was karma for her diva tantrum the week before.

When she spent 72 hours in the jungle

Gemma famously lasted just 72 hours in the I'm a Celebrity jungle, but she still managed to make the nation laugh with her outrageous behaviour. The TOWIE star even insisted "People that murdered get treated better than this, and thats the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day."

Gemma's infamous candy scene

Ah, the early days of Gemma and Arg's relationship. The GC was filmed in a Marbella special, when she famously told on/off boyfriend Arg "Don't ever disrespect a girl like that again. Take a good look at this, you ain't ever gonna get this candy.", before dropping her throw and strutting away in a black swimsuit.

When she was a total diva in an interview

Anyone else still cringe when they remember that painfully awkward chat between Gemma and an interviewer who hadn't read her book? The GC had a major diva-meltdown when she found out the journalist hadn't been seen a copy before holding the interview, thus ending the call, "Darling, don't worry, we're going to get the book publishers to send everyone doing an interview the book. Thank you, bye!"

Basically, her entire time in the CBB house

Other hilarious moments from Gemma's stint in the Big Brother house included yelling at producers, "I don't need the money! I've got money!". She also got upset when Big Brother failed to provide professional blow-dries: "This is very expensive hair and its all frazzled, because you've only got straighteners in here, you haven't got heated rollers. So, you can pay for me to have a new set of extensions. Straighteners are what weirdos use on their hair."

And when she fell down the trap door at the Teen Choice Awards

Talking of Gemma's tumbles - how could anyone forget her iconic fall down the trap door at the BBC1 Radio Teen Choice Awards?

However, Gemma has since insisted the reports were a “load of tosh” as she shared a text conversation between her and Amber to prove there’s no bad blood.

“We had such a laugh didn’t we x,” Gemma wrote in one message, which she shared on Instagram, before adding, “I love you to bits babe no beef here x.”

Amber replied, “Yes we did 🤍🤍,” and told Gemma, “Good I’m glad, I adore you!! And respect you so much.”

Rumours of a feud between the two reality stars go back four years to the TOWIE legend’s accident at the Teen Awards, after which Amber claims she called her a “little girl” and forgot her name.

“Before going on stage we were introduced to each other so she knows my name. But then on This Morning she said, ‘That poor girl nearly got crushed, there’s nothing of her’,” she told new! magazine at the time.

Amber added, “And in another interview she said, ‘That little girl got knocked down!’ How rude is that?”

At least they appear to be on good terms now, eh?
