Another week, another drama on Dancing On Ice! Just when we thought The GC couldn't get any more extra, Gemma Collins suffered a epic fall during her routine on Dancing On Ice last night (Sunday 27th January).

After getting stick from the judging panel last week (especially Jason Gardiner), Gemma and her professional partner Matt Evers took to the ice to perform a lovely routine to Celine Dion's 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now', but it went a little wrong at the end.

As Gemma prepared to complete her final move, the TOWIE star slipped up and fell flat on her face on the ice (OUCH!)

Despite initial worries that Gemma had seriously hurt herself, the 37-year-old picked herself up and carried on like true pro, receiving her highest scores yet from the judging panel.

HOWEVER, after rewinding Gemma's fall over and over again, some Dancing On Ice viewers are now accusing her of 'staging' the slip, taking to Twitter to express their thoughts.

One user wrote, 'Am I the only that’s a little dubious about the Gemma Collins fall? It would not surprise me if it was fake 😂 #diva #dancingonice2019'. [sic] Another added, 'Watch it back.... looks like a totally fake fall #gemmacollins #DancingOnIce #sympathyvote'. [sic]

A third then wrote, '👏👏 @missgemcollins you couldn't have made it much more obvious that you purposely threw yourself over if you tried. But hey, it got you through. Last week the attack on the judge, this week the fake fall. Excited for next weeks installment. Contestant attack? #DancingOnIce'. [sic]
