Gemma Collins is dating an old flame, but sadly he is unlikely to appear in the next season of The Only Way Is Essex.
Gemma told The Sun, "I'm seeing a guy called Darren who was my childhood sweetheart. We're just seeing each other so it's nothing serious yet. We're having fun and that's what it is all about."
"He has got his own thing going on and his own business so he isn't interested in TV."
We think it’s a shame he isn’t going to appear. We like the idea of the new Gemma (who has lost nearly four stone) strutting around with her new stud in front of Mick Norcross, so Mick can see what he turned down.
