Gemma Collins back with jailbird ex?

Share article:

Gemma Collins has reportedly rekindled her romance with her jailbird ex Stephen Mortimer.

The 37-year-old reality star may be currently looking for love on E4 show "Celebs Go Dating", but it turns out she doesn't need experts to help her find a man as she's believed to have gotten back together with Stephen, who whisked her off on a romantic night out on Tuesday (13.02.18), ahead of Valentine's Day.

Stephen - who was previously convicted of grievous bodily harm (GBH) before being locked up again in 2016 after stealing jewellery in a house raid - took Gemma to the Down Hall Hotel in Hertfordshire on Tuesday night, just in time for the romantic holiday on Wednesday (14.02.18).

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Stephen showered Gemma with sweet gestures, booking the best suite at the hotel and forking out for spa treatments.

"He treated her like a princess by getting her favourite wine in and giving her a heart-shaped balloon for the occasion. But as part of being on "Celebs Go Dating", she needs to be seen as single and bosses wouldn't be happy if they knew she was with Stephen again."

Gemma and Stephen first began dating in 2015, and were together when the "Only Way Is Essex" star entered the "Celebrity Big Brother" house in January 2016.

Whilst Gemma was in the house, Stephen was sent back to prison for 28 days for breaching the terms of his licence following his two-year conviction for GBH.
