The Only Way is Essex came back on to our screens this weekend in style.

And it reminded us all why we love it.

But what we love EVEN more is finding out gossip about some of our favourite past couples.

And boy has there been a few…

Sam Faiers and Joey Essex. Jake Hall and Chloe Lewis. Diags and Fran Parman.

But our favourite?

Well, Gemma was chatting on Loose Women last week and revealed some MAJOR news.

She suggested that she had secretly tried to get pregnant during a one-night stand with a TOWIE co-star.

But, she didn’t reveal who.

After the whole world ummed and ahhed about who it was, she has now revealed it was none other than Arg!


Gemma is set to make the revelation during Wednesday night’s episode of TOWIE where she discusses it with Chloe Sims, Bobby Norris and Georgia Kousoulou.

According to Reveal, Gemma admits that she started reflecting on being alone after becoming ill with a sinus problem during a holiday to Tenerife last month.

“It was that awful moment when you go, ‘Actually it’s just me,’” she says.

“I haven’t got a boyfriend so how am I ever going to have a baby? I’m 36, and it’s made me feel a little unfulfilled.”

Gemma then went on to confess that her desperation to have a child caused her to make a drastic decision during her brief liaison with Arg in Marbella back in October.

“I had a one-night stand with someone we all know,’ she tells her pals.

“The long and short of it is, I didn’t use contraception, because I’m at that age now that if I fall pregnant, I fall pregnant.”

“When I came on my period I thought, “What a shame.’”

Chloe replied with what’s on all of our minds, saying: “I’m no psychotherapist, we all know that.

“But Gem… what you’ve just told us is a little bit crazy. Woman to woman, age to age, I think you’re losing your marbles a little bit.”

Eek. We wonder what Arg would think of all of this…
