Recently, rumours surfaced that she and Gaz are now a thing, after they were spotted enjoying dinner together.
Fans were quick to speculate the pair had struck up a new romance, but insisting they are just friends, Emma has now taken to Twitter to have her say.
She tweeted: "I forgot I'm not allowed to have male friends. I definitely wouldn't be going on a date to TGIs, as much as I love the mozzerella dippers."
She and Gary had been pictured eating out together at a TGIs restaurant in Leeds last weekend.
Adding fuel to the fire, Emma was then seen tweeting a friend that she had been working on her Geordie - suggesting she and Gaz have been spending some time with one another. The model had also retweeted one of the reality star's Instagram posts about relationships.

While Emma has now set the record straight on herself and Gary, it seems her ex and former TOWIE star Mario Falcone couldn't resist sharing his thoughts on the pairing.
After hearing the pair were dating, Mario appeared to make a dig at his former flame, cryptically tweeting: "Oh dear. Onwards and upwards has never been more apparent haha."
He also retweeted a Twitter user that had posted: "'I can do better' LOOOOL Yh b u keep lyin to urself for that inner comfort to help urself come to terms with losing someone as wavy as me."

Mario and Emma first began dating back in 2014 and had seemed pretty smitten, with the Essex boy revealing he and Emma had plans to buy a house together.
However, the pair later split in August 2015, with Emma implying Mario had been messaging other girls behind her back.
Appearing to work through their issues, the couple rekindled their relationship a month later, but Mario confirmed he and Emma had broken up for good in October.
Explaining he wasn't happy, he told Reveal: "We tried everything, but I just wasn't happy. We argued too much. Sometimes you can try and work at something and it just doesn't work out."
Gaz, meanwhile, is yet to comment.
