Gemma Collins was 'secretly axed from Strictly Come Dancing', according to a report.

The feisty TOWIE star, 34, allegedly stepped on toes - pardon the pun! - during talks with BBC producers.

The Daily Star says that Gemma's 'attitude' caused her to be removed from the final line-up.

A source said: "Gemma was quite demanding when it came to pre-series filming commitments.

"Her diva persona is a hit with fans, but didn't go down well at Strictly."

The newspaper now suggests that Gemma has signed with C4 show The Jump instead, which will air in January.

Former TOWIE stars Amy Childs and Joey Essex have both previously taken part in the ski jumping show, and Joey even went on to win the series earlier this year.

There has also been speculation that Gemma will be returning to the I'm A Celebrity jungle after her brief stint in 2014.

Either way, Gemma certainly seems to be in demand at the moment!

Strictly kicked off on Friday night (25 September) as the celebrities danced for the first time on the BBC show.

While Carol Kirkwood's dancing did not impress the judges, viewers saw Anthony Ogogo suffer an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction...

The boxer was the second contestant to perform when he danced to Wham's 'Wake Me Up Before You Go Go'.

But during the energetic performance, Anthony's trousers split!
