Gemma Collins storms out of date on Celebs Go Dating

Gemma Collins stormed out of her latest date on "Celebs Go Dating" after being branded a diva.

The "Only Way Is Essex" star is looking for love on the E4 show after six years with on/off boyfriend James "Arg" Argent".

But Gemma's experience is not going well after she turned up half an hour late for a date - only to storm straight out.

The 37-year-old reality star was matched by dating experts Nadia Essex and Eden Blackman with a guy named Tel.

Gemma arrived late and Tel immediately confronted her on her poor time keeping.

He said: "I've been sitting waiting for you half an hour ... You're just doing your diva bit indoors."

Gemma took offence and hit back: "You're calling me a diva?"

She then told Tel: "Do you know what, honey? See you later!", before storming out.

Outside the venue, Gemma said to the cameras: "Absolute bellend ... This has been a disaster."

Back inside, jilted Tel was seen muttering: "You've just proved my point ... bonjour."

Gemma had a successful first match with Lawrence, but her time on the relationship show may be doomed, as she is rumoured to already be back in the arms of Arg.

Dating expert Nadia said previously: "Ultimately Gemma and Arg have been playing this dance for six years. And as far as I'm concerned, if someone is into you, it doesn't take them six years to ask you out."

Regarding reports that Gemma is secretly dating Arg, Nadia said: "All we can go by is what Gemma tells us. And Gemma is there and committed and has left the GC behind and she wants to find love marriage and babies.

"We have to focus on the present, here and now. And here and now Gemma Collins deserves the absolute fairy tale. And I don't think Arg is that knight in shining armour.

"For me it's very much it's been a mission to empower Gemma Collins to know her self-worth and ultimately I wouldn't hang around with someone that's kept me dangling for six whole years."

Gemma and Arg spent Christmas and New Year in Marbella together, and last month he was snapped leaving the blonde beauty's home with his wash bag under his arm.

Gemma recently said: "The hard thing is we can't really show how we feel. I'm so happy and I can't really tell people. Having said that, I have been on a few dates on "Celebs Go Dating" which have thrown a spanner in the works. So what will be will be."
