The Only Way Is Essex's Gemma Collins has assured fans that she has not left the show.

Gemma felt the need to set the record straight last night, after she failed to appear in the latest episode of the ITVBe reality show.

The star did feature in the Ibiza special, jaunting around the White Isle on a jetski with Bobby Norris, but little has been seen of her since.

Gemma has now, however, given a reason for her no show.

Taking to Twitter, Gemma said: "Don't fear tweeps, lots of tweets from you. Yes I am still in TOWIE, I have been ill. I will be back Sunday with a BANG #towie x."

Meanwhile, away from Essex, Gemma was recently rumoured to be featuring in the I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! lineup.

Last month, whispers that Gemma would be flying to Australia to take part in the ITV1 reality show began doing the rounds following a newspaper report.

A source claimed to The Sun that Gemma and her co-star Chloe Sims were in talks about the jungle, with the view that one of them would bag a spot in the showbiz programme.

After hearing the news, one fan tweeted: "Gemma Collins would be the only one I'd actually watch it for!"
