Holly Willoughby swerves Gemma Collins chat as star backtracks on ‘diva’ feud

Holly Willoughby swerves Gemma Collins chat as star backtracks on ‘diva’ feud

Gemma Collins has been on a one-woman Instagram mission to set the record straight after Holly Willoughby accused her of being ‘unprofessional’.

However, the same can’t be said for Holly who expertly avoided talking about the GC throughout the entire instalment of today’s This Morning. 

Earlier in the week, Holly branded the TOWIE star ‘unprofessional’ after hearing that she took a "nap" backstage at the end of Sunday’s Dancing on Ice, and then left early.

Gemma has since hit back at these claims, saying she believes Holly and Phil were given the wrong information and perhaps told she had taken a nap, when she had in fact been told she was "allowed to leave."

But on This Morning, Phil and Holly said nothing of the rumours and claims swirling around Gemma, despite her posting frantically to Instagram to set the record straight, as well as their ITV colleague Lorraine Kelly openly speaking to her skating partner, Matt Evers.


He told Lorraine: "She did not have a nap, we all want to take a nap on Sunday because we’re there all day for rehearsals. First thing in the morning we do camera blocking… by the time the show starts at 6pm, you’re exhausted.

"We weren’t performing a competition number on Sunday… after the group number she thought she was free to go.

"She got a text from her car saying it had arrived, and she asked somebody if she could go and they said, ‘yeah, you’re done.’

"She didn’t have a nap, I wish we could have a nap on Sundays!"

Gemma, meanwhile, was sharing her version of events to Instagram, speaking out in support of Holly, saying her version of events must have been the result of misinformation.

The GC said: "I think they was giving information that wasn’t correct and they’ve given their opinion on it. Hopefully they’ve been told straight the facts now but I agree with Holly.

"If I had done that I’d be saying the same, ‘god, how unprofessional.’ I only have love for Holly and Phil. Big up the Holly and Phil. There’s no beef here.

"Holly and Phil have done nothing wrong. At the end of the day, they were given some information and they gave their opinion.

"They are kind of Kings and Queens of TV – they’re going to do that so there’s no bad feeling there."

Meanwhile, the Dancing on Ice controversies have continued as Megan Barton Hanson has said she is not jealous of her boyfriend Wes Nelson’s skating partner, Vanessa Bauer.

She posted a long thread about how Vanessa had not made an effort to meet her, saying it "pained" her to introduce herself to Megan.

The Love Island star is now set to appear on Loose Women to talk about what happened, after she said she is not jealous of Vanessa and Wes’ friendship in any way.

Dancing on Ice airs Sundays at 6pm on ITV.
