It's like the lyrics straight out of a Justin Timberlake song...GC is dead and gone. BUT, long live Gemma Collins, because the head diva of The Only Way Is Essex is BACK.

Gemma is back in vajazzle town and has vowed to change her ways and co-star Ferne McCann reveals what 'GC' really stands for.

More news!

And OUCH, the outspoken Ferne lets rip. Do you remember in Sunday's episode when Ferne told Georgia Kousoulou that she likened her to "door mat" for putting up with boyfriend Tommy Mallet's behaviour?

Gemma's bonfire proves a very cleansing one for her.

Well, Ferne hasn't stopped her opinionative ways. When Gemma calls her closest friends to a bonfire - to mark a new chapter in her life - she asks each of them to reveal what they dislike most about GC.

Ferne delievers a brutal response when she says that GC is ‘rude, brash and demanding.’ We told you...OUCH.

Gemma chats to Ferne.

After Gem's pals burn the former GC, Gemma hails a fresh start.

On Sunday, Jessica Wright said she didn't mind Lauren Pope dating Dan Edgar, after her little flind with him.

But now in true TOWIE style drama, Jess is now unhappy with the way Lauren has handled the situation and calls her out on it when they come face to face at brunch that day.

Jess talks to Lauren and by the look on her face it doesn't look pleasant.

Can they put their Dan differences behind them though? While Jess plays pool with Pete 'the pirate' Wicks, Lauren goes on a bowling date with Dan.

Other TOWIE news...

Jake Hall and Chloe Lewis are still having relationship dramas.

Tommy and Georgia reflect on Ferne's argument with Georgia - you know the one where she called her a 'doormat'.

While Mario Falcone, James 'Lockie' Lock and Pete embrace serenity with a spot of outdoor yoga.

The drama continues in The Only Way Is Essex on Wednesday 1st July at 10pm on ITVBe.

"People are going to see the real bare, stripped-back me. I might just become Bear Grylls, you never know."We never did get to see Gemma chowing down on a raw snake, drinking her own urine or sleeping inside a rancid camel (yep, Bear Grylls has seriously done all of those things).

"Yeah alright, I've cracked at the first hurdle. It's like the turtle and the slug or the horse and the rabbit or something, I can't remember what it is."Who could forget the age-old story of the turtle and the slug?

"If they don’t give us a treat I’m going to kill myself.”Well, the suicide threats didn’t work, but outside of the jungle is a plentiful world of treats just waiting for Gem.

"I've never been in a shower which takes so much hard work but you've just got to roll with it, like Oasis said."

"I feel like I’ve got malaria. My poo is bright fluorescent yellow, we’ve got to get out of here today.”Symptoms of malaria do not include yellow poo, constant whinging or an Essex accent, sorry Gem.

"Seriously, I'd give anything for a bit of dried fruit. Dried fruit! I'm not even asking for a ham sandwich. You know what I mean? With a packet of Quavers on the side."We’re not sure dried fruit is the best remedy for fluorescent yellow diarrhea Gem, maybe just stick to dry bread and water until the ‘malaria’ clears up.

"People that murder get treated better than this, and that's the truth. Even a murderer gets fed three times a day."Murderers also don’t get paid at least £25,000 to go on a jolly holiday to Australia either. They also tend not to have strops and quit their sentences, but who cares about the details….

"If I'm not in that camp in three minutes, I'm quitting."That’s what the helicopter was for, Gem.
