Gemma Collins has taken a break from social media so she can improve her skating skills.

The "Dancing on Ice" contestant has vowed to leave her Instagram and Twitter accounts alone until Sunday (27.01.19) to concentrate on her skating, after she received the lowest score of the series on last Sunday's (20.01.19) show.

She wrote on Instagram: "Guys after today I can't be on social as I really need to up my skating skills I'm not leaving you but I really need to focus here's a little something to keep you going xxx il be back up and running Sunday (sic)"

Gemma also shared a meme from one of her fan accounts which showed her telling "Dancing on Ice" judge Jason Gardiner he was "boring" and then saying "next".

In the clip, the former "TOWIE" star's slam appears after a segment of Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" music video.

Gemma embarked into a furious war of words with Jason on Sunday's live show, alleging he had been "selling stories" about her, and he hit back by branding her a "brat".

And now, her fellow "Dancing on Ice" contestant James Jordan says Gemma is "insecure" after she threatened to quit the show when Holly Willoughby questioned her "professionalism", after it was claimed last week that she had left a live show early.

In his Best magazine column, he wrote: "With regard to Gemma Collins's "diva" behaviour - threatening to quit after Holly Willoughby suggested she should be more "professional" - it's her way of coping with situations that upset her.

""The GC" comes out - she becomes a caricature. Deep down, Gemma's a sweet, insecure, sensitive girl."

Dancing on Ice's digital presenter Kem Cetinay "massively apologised" to Gemma last week after he claimed live on "This Morning" that she had been late to rehearsals for a group performance because she was "having a nap", and said she'd left Sunday's live show early because she was "bored".

This prompted a backlash from presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly about her "professionalism".

Later in the week, her pro partner Matt Evers laughed off reports she had been caught napping.

He stated: "Gemma did not have a nap. Look, we all want to take a nap on Sundays, I wish I could have a nap on Sundays.

"We're there all day Saturdays for rehearsals we're there first thing on Sunday, we do camera blocking all morning, then we do a dress rehearsal all afternoon."
