TOWIE’s Gemma Collins clears up Arg romance rumours on Good Morning Britain
After months of speculation over the status of their relationship, Gemma Collins has finally set the record straight about her romance with James ‘Arg’ Argent.
The last season of The Only Way Is Essex ended with Arg declaring his true feelings for the GC and the pair agreeing to share a romantic Christmas together. However, it was recently confirmed Gemma will be featuring on the next installment of E4’s Celebs Go Dating, leaving fans confused as to whether the two are really together or not.
The TOWIE star appeared on Good Morning Britain today to address the rumours and, speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, Gemma was quick to deny any romance with her co-star.
Piers joked, “Who is Arg?” to which Gemma replied, “Exactly!”
But with host Piers keen to get to the point, he asked: “Are you dating him not?”
“No,” Gemma replied. “He’s a dear friend.”
“Are you going to date him?” Piers continued.
“No!” Gemma shot back indignantly.
When Susanna asked whether there could be any hope of romance in the future, Gemma avoided the question.
“Do you know what it is? The press keeps writing that he’s in and out of my house every five minutes,” she said.
“The truth is he pops to see Ferne [McCann] because me and Ferne are neighbours, so he pops round Ferne’s, rings me up, “Gem I’m popping in for a cup of tea”.”
Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6:30am on ITV.
