Shot last year, Gemma is seen reclined on a sofa as the fan attempts to impress her, Danielle, Mario Falcone, Jessica Wright and Ferne McCann with his singing talents. Why exactly, well that's a mystery!

The unnamed guy has got his face painted with stars and a rainbow feather in his ear but, after belting out Mariah Carey's 'Hero', Gemma tells him what she really thinks.

"Can I give you some advice?" she says, while waving a drink around. "If I was Simon Cowell right now I'd tell you to go back to basics - lose them [sic] stars off your face and feather in your ear."

The fan tells Gemma his costume is for TOWIE filming, but she goes on: "I respect that, I respect individuality..."

Unfortunately, the clip then cuts off, leaving us all hanging. Did he make it through to bootcamp?!

Sharing the footage of the guy singing with fans, Danielle said: "#tbt Just found this video last year of this boy singing for us last year @mario_falcone17, @fernemccann, @jesswright77.

"Remember what @gemmacollins1 aka Simon Cowell said after his performance? This was probably the funniest part, will show next..."

Danielle then posted Gemma's critique, adding: "We may not always agree on things but this is why the woman is pure entertainment #TakeTheFeatherOutYourEar #StarsOffYaFace."

Mel B and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini should watch out, as we think Gemma is after their jobs!
