The bubbly blonde, otherwise known as The GC, quit the show in August after four years on the ITVBe reality show.
With the new series now back on our screens, we asked two of its stars - Danielle Armstrong and Pete Wicks - how it was filming without Gemma.
"We definitely missed Gemma," says Danielle. "She's just got such an amazing presence about her. Marbella for me is Gemma walking in with her kaftan and rowing with Bobby over something stupid!"
Ah, we must admit, we kind of miss those arguments too!
Pete says that since Gemma's departure, he's actually seen a big change in her BFF Bobby Norris...
"With Gemma not being there, Bobs is completely different," Pete reveals. "He was like a completely different person this holiday, like a brand new person. He was out every night, he didn't have to go home and rub her feet! It's given Bob a new lease of life. I think everyone's missed Gemma but it's given a different dynamic to it."
TOWIE airs every Wednesday and Sunday at 10pm on ITVBe.
