Sam Thompson: Gemma Collins 'sets my juices on fire'

Sam Thompson says Gemma Collins "sets his juices on fire."

The "Made in Chelsea" hunk has been spending more time with the "Only Way is Essex" queen recently because they're both shooting the new series of "Celebs Go Dating" and he has admitted he's developing more and more of a soft spot for her.

Taking to his Instagram account, the 25-year-old hunk uploaded a photograph of him and Gemma together and her wrote: "There's only one girl for me @gemmacollins1 you set my juices on, (sic)" followed by a series of fire emojis.

The public display of affection comes just days after Sam - who split from his long-term on/off girlfriend Tiffany Watson at the beginning summer - admitted he had a crush on the 36-year-old reality TV diva because she makes him smile.

He said recently: "Gemma Collins. Legitimately. She is so cool. Every time I talk to her, she brings out a smile and I love people like that."

Sam also has his eye on other people on the show - but he doesn't think he stands a chance next to "Love Island" hunk and fellow hopeful Mike Thalassitis.

Asked if anyone else has caught his eye, he said: "Yes, massively, but Mike is here and he's an 111 out of 10. There's no competition at all. Literally if he walks in, I'll walk out."

Though Sam's used to having his love life played out on screen, finding a date is very new for him.

He said: "I am [used to being on camera] but I've never been on a proper date apart from with some of my old girlfriends but I knew all of them.

"I've never just gone up to a random person in a bar and said, "Do you want to go for a drink?" I'm really quite shy and semi-insecure."
