TOWIE's Sam Faiers has defended Gemma Collins following her blowout row with James Lock and Danielle Armstrong in last night's show.

Gemma and Bobby Norris found themselves in the midst of a showdown with James and Danielle at James 'Arg' Argent's food party and it's fair to say a few insults were thrown - including a hurtful comment about Gemma's weight.

James was furious with Bobby and Gemma for "sh*t-stiring" and telling Danielle that he had cheated on her. He branded Gemma a "two-faced slag", a "f***ing silly old tart" and a "bully", prompting her to throw a drink in his face.

Danielle also called Gemma, who had stuck up for Bobby, a "fat silly b*tch", while she responded saying: "You're f*** all, darling".

Gemma's co-star Sam has now jumped to her defence and told her that she is a "beautiful person".

Taking to Twitter, Sam said: "Hate shallow people ... @missgemcollins sticks & stones... To me your a beautiful person & a good friend.. If only they knew."

Bobby also tweeted: "Thank you for having my back @missgemcollins #always x."

Although James has stood firm, Danielle has apologised to Gemma for making a snide remark about her size, saying she is "disappointed" in herself.
This morning (13 March), Danielle told her fans: "I'm really disappointed in myself for making a nasty comment on Gemma's weight, regardless how angry I was it was unacceptable. Xx."

Gemma has so far not responded directly to Danielle, however she has claimed that she was called "fat" more than once.

"If you saw the un-edited version she called me fat 15 times to everyone in the room #imnotthebully my weight had nothing to do with it," she alleged on Twitter.
