'I'm A Celebrity' 2015: Gemma Collins Wants Us All To 'Get Over' Her 72 Hours In The Jungle

Gemma Collins is done - do you hear us? DONE - with talking about her infamous appearance on ‘I’m A Celebrity’ last year.


The former ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ cast member lasted just 72 hours in the jungle last November before throwing in the towel, and since then it’s rather followed her around in interviews and TV appearances.

It now appears that Gemma has had more than enough of talking about her brief time on ‘I’m A Celeb’, saying people need to “get over it”.

Of course, this might pack more of a punch if she hadn’t said it… on spin-off show, ‘I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here NOW!’. Which she’d flown to Australia especially to appear on.

She said: “Look, guys. I just couldn’t do it and everyone needs to get over it. I’m so over it.

“I don’t think I’ll ever go back in there to be honest.”

Gemma was recently tipped to be following her ‘I’m A Celebrity’ appearance with a stint in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ line-up, which appeared to be backed up by the fact that she quit ‘TOWIE’ for good around that time.

However, she was ultimately absent when the series kicked off, with new reports suggesting that she’s the first celebrity to have signed up for the new series of the notoriously dangerous reality show ‘The Jump’ instead.

Meanwhile, Gemma’s former co-star, Ferne McCann, will be joining this year’s contestants in the jungle later this week, alongside ‘Made In Chelsea’ lothario Spencer Matthews and Vicky Pattison, formerly of ‘Geordie Shore’.
