Former TOWIE star Lauren Pope is said to be 'secretly glad' that people are 'seeing the real Gemma Collins' on Celebrity Big Brother.

Fans of TOWIE will know it's no secret that Lauren and Gemma don't see eye to eye. The girls often came to blows during Gemma's spats with Vas J Morgan, and now, Lauren is reportedly glad people are getting to see just how confrontational she can be on the Channel 5 reality show.

According to the Mail Online, a friend of Lauren's revealed: "Popey has watched a bit of the show and she's glad people are seeing the real Gemma."

"Now everyone knows what the rest of TOWIE had to put up with when it comes to her diva behaviour," they added. "She can be incredibly brash and outspoken."

Lauren and Gemma fell out when the TOWIE cast headed to Marbella last summer, all because Lauren impersonated her co-star. Their feud lasted when the pair returned home to Essex and no-one can forget *that* explosive row between Lauren, Gemma, Vas and Bobby Norris where even wine was thrown...

Following the showdown, Lauren claimed Gemma's issues with her and Vas were because they aren't intimidated by her.

Now, on Celebrity Big Brother, Gemma has fallen out of favour with a handful of her housemates too.

She and Stephanie Davis came to blows, after Gemma called the former Hollyoaks star out for kissing Jeremy when she has a boyfriend. Stephanie hit back at Gemma, labelling her a "talentless diva monster."

Gemma and John Partridge have been at loggerheads, ever since she told John she thinks he is playing the biggest game in the house. Gemma had also warned Darren Day about John's aim to be tactical, telling him she thinks he is getting "mugged off."

The reality star also came to blows with Tiffany Pollard over a pair of shoes she had given her. On launch night, Gemma gifted Tiffany her designer shoes, but later claimed she wanted them back after Tiffany refused to apologise to Angie Bowie.

Tiffany had mistakenly thought Angie had told her David Gest - not Bowie - had died, hitting out at the 66-year-old for 'lying' to her.

When she heard Gemma had said she wanted her shoes back - and had actually taken them in secret - Tiffany launched a foul-mouthed tirade at her housemate, targeting her weight.

However, the girls have now seemed to patch things up and have even been teaming up to wind up their other housemates.

Tiff even brought out Gemma's softer side in a conversation about relationships. Gemma confessed she doesn't think someone will ever sweep her off her feet, with Tiffany touchingly telling her not to give up on finding love.

CBB airs nightly on Channel 5.
