Gemma Collins lands US TV gig

Share article:

Gemma Collins has landed her first television work in America.

The "Only Way is Essex" star has become a national favourite after she accidentally slipped through the stage floor while presenting BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in October, and it looks like she's about to try her luck across the pond as she's just bagged herself a small screen gig over there, although it's not yet known what she'll be doing.

Taking to her Twitter account today (05.01.18), she coyly wrote: "Very excited to tell you all I have landed my first American tv work so so excited," followed by a heart emoji.

It's not known when the 36-year-old star will be heading across to the US or how long she'll be gone for as she recently said she was planning to remain on "TOWIE".

She said: "The main cast have given their lives to the show. New people come in and think they are a star. They're wrong. I won't mention names but some don't have what it takes to entertain the nation, so they have to go.

"When I said I've earned my divaship, it's not like I walk around and expect perfume sprayed in my path but the main cast were on "TOWIE" when some of these people were still in their school uniform. If me, Chloe Sims, Arg, Georgia [Kousoulou], Tommy [Mallet], Lockie, Yaz [Oukhellou] and Pete [Wicks] were off the show, the others couldn't sustain it. We're like the roast beef in the sandwich and they're the pickle. Obviously they're not going to get rid of me."

And the curvaceous blonde is also hoping to bag a spot on the "Strictly Come Dancing" line up after judge Craig Revel Horwood claimed she wasn't famous enough.

Brian McFadden shrugs off Gemma Collins 'banter' about bedding him

She said recently: "I'm certainly not low-rent, darling. We all have to start somewhere.

"I'll burst onto that dancefloor and show them what a samba is. He won't know what's hit him. I've been to Sylvia Young Theatre School and I won south east England champion for dancing. Of course he'd love me. It's a shame if they take that dim view of me because they're ultimately missing out. My hips don't lie."
