Gemma Collins has thanked Vicky Pattsion for looking out for her, after she broke down in tears on Loose Women.

Yesterday, Gemma joined the Loose Women panel to discuss her time on Celebrity Big Brother, but came over all emotional when conversation turned to her relationship.

She was asked to address rumours she and her boyfriend, Stephen Mortimer, had split, but instead a tearful Gemma asked if she could refrain from talking about it. Vicky quickly tried to change the subject and was seen giving Gemma a hug onscreen.

Now, Gemma has credited the I'm A Celebrity winner for being there for her.

Gemma joined Vicky on CBBBOTS last night and during her chat with Rylan, she addressed the 28-year-old. Gemma said: "I want to say a massive thank you to Vicky because I had a bit of a moment on Loose Women today."

The former TOWIE star had been discussing her decision to put her alter-ego (the G.C) to bed and admitted people can't handle seeing the real Gemma.

Gemma suggested she tries to hide her vulnerability, as people react 'in a funny way' to her showing the real her.

She claimed: "People are a bit like [what?] but that's Gemma. And when I see people react to that in a funny way, I think they can't handle it when I'm being normal, so it makes me feel funny."

Gemma being in tears onscreen seemed to divide viewers opinion on Twitter. While some criticised her for showing 'crocodile tears', others sympathised with Gemma over her break up.

On the show, Gemma refused to delve into her relationship. Instead, she said: "I came out of the house, obviously, this is so embarrassing, obviously a situation has happened and I'm just not ready to deal with it right now."

"People forget I'm just a normal girl," she claimed. "I do have problems with my love life, whatever, forget him."

Talk then turned to Gemma's plans for 2016.

Gemma was starring on CBB when Stephen revealed he'd be unable to attend her eviction night as he was reporting back to prison to serve a 28-day sentence following an accusation he breached the terms of a previous release licence.
