Fans of the one and only Gemma Collins were left devastated yesterday, when it was reported that the TOWIE star was about to QUIT Dancing On Ice, following the news that presenter Holly Willoughby called her 'unprofessional'.

After Holly and her co-host Phillip Schofield revealed the reality star had turned up late and then decided to take a nap during the dress rehearsal, it was understood that Gemma thought there was a 'conspiracy' to get her off the show.

Matthew grew up into such a good-looking chap that the makeup department on the Potter films had to try and make him less attractive in the later films, even spawning the phrase 'Longbottomed'.

But with the help of a diet plan, Jonathan was able to lose a whopping three stone in just 12 weeks, and six inches off his waist!

Rumours that Gemma was about to quit the show stemmed from when Holly questioned her professionalism after last weekend's show.

Speaking on This Morning to Dancing On Ice's backstage reporter, Kem Cetinay, Holly said, "I love Gemma, I’m a big fan of hers and I love her on the show. But I do think there has to be a bit of professionalism that comes into any work you do, just a bit of pride in your work."

Although Gemma was reportedly left 'in tears' at Holly's comments, the 37-year-old has remained silent on the matter.

After Neighbours actor Mark Little was the first celebrity to be eliminated, the remaining 11 stars will battle it out to be crowned the 2019 ice-champion.

Dancing On Ice continues every Sunday at 6pm on ITV.
