TOWIE's Gemma Collins Dumped By Boyfriend Charlie King After Saucy Texts To Ricky Rayment

While we're still reeling from the fact Gemma Collins has been revealed as Ricky Rayment's secret sexter, it's all become too much for Gemma's boyfriend Charlie King, who has reportedly dumped her.

Charlie is said to have given Gemma the elbow after discovering her string of saucy messages to his co-star - which was shown on last night's episode of the reality series.

“It’s a shame - they were being set up as the hot new couple.”

Charlie seemed to confirm the rumours after last night's show, saying how he needed "some time to think" after a "draining weekend".

"Just want some time to think draining weekend ! - so pleased to b in bed!! Night all and again thank u x," he tweeted.

Their relationship had attracted some criticism as Gemma had admitted the couple were yet to have sex and some questioning Charlie's sexuality.

Despite her sexts to Ricky, Gemma was only gushing to Heat magazine last week about Charlie.

"He’s lovely and it’s lovely to be with someone who sends me lovely texts, takes me to dinner and pays the bills," she said. "That’s all I need at the moment – Charlie is good therapy for me."
