TOWIE's Gemma Collins skipped this week's big finale carnival filming.

She's one of the most well known members of the ITVBe cast so we were surprised to read today's report in The Mirror that claimed she wasn't invite to the big finale bash.

No GC?!

A source told the paper: "Gemma knows it's been a tough series and she has no interest in being involved in any more backstabbing, drama or arguments that could reflect badly on her businesses."

A rep for TOWIE, however, has explained Gemma wasn't actually required for filming that day as she'd wrapped up her storyline for the series earlier.

The spokesperson said: "Gemma actually wasn't needed at the final as she filmed her scene with Bobby the day before."

Will Bobby and Gemma go back to being besties?

Another scene with Bobby? Will she give him the apology he wants? And will he give her the apology she has also requested?

The last time former BFFs Gemma and Bobby came face to face it didn't go that well, with Gemma suggesting they brush their differences under the rug and Bobby saying, no, he needed to talk about it to move forward. They fell out at a pool party earlier this month when Gemma became upset Bobby wasn't sticking up for her in a row with Lauren Pope and Vas J Morgan, while Bobby accused Gemma of throwing him under the bus.

That conversation ended in Gemma walking away before they could resolve anything. She has, however, made it clear she wants to patch up her friendship with Bobby.

"I would say to Bobby let's not let Lauren and Vas ruin our friendship. I'm not one to hold a grudge. Let's just move forward. I'm not sure where Bobby is at the minute but I'm sure if we speak we will sort things out and hopefully it will be alright," she said recently.

"As far as I'm concerned, Vas and Lauren were nasty to me out of nowhere. They just aren't people in my life. I've never really hung out with them in Essex so no skin off my nose."
