Gemma Collins Leaves Carol Vorderman Stunned With Her Attempts At Matchmaking On The Wheel

Vorders was apparently less than impressed with The GC's suggestion of a new celebrity suitor for her.

The last few Saturday nights we’ve been watching Michael McIntyre’s celeb-heavy new game show The Wheel after Strictly Come Dancing, and thinking the same thing to ourselves each week.

“Surely Gemma Collins is going to be involved in this at some point”.

Well, we’re happy to report that The GC finally put in an appearance in Saturday night’s edition of The Wheel. And, as ever, she delivered.

Our favourite moment from her episode came when she and contestant Sean were given a question about baking, which he said he knew the answer to because of the Great British Bake Off.

“Well I’m pleased you watched,” Gemma told him. “It’s just, I just can’t take my eyes off Paul Hollywood.”

Apparently fancying herself as something of a matchmaker, The GC then turned to fellow celebrity guest Carol Vorderman and told her: “Carol, he’d be one for you, him. You’d make a nice couple.”

“No!” the former Countdown star protested, insisting the Bake Off judge was actually “far too old” for her.

Yes, that would be the same Paul Hollywood that is, in fact, five years her junior.

Iconic, tbh.

Gemma’s admissions about her famous crushes didn’t stop there, though, with the reality TV queen later confessing: “Aside from fancying José Mourinho I don’t know nothing about football.”

The Wheel made its debut last month, and sees a panel of celebrity experts trying to win money for members of the public by helping them answer questions about subjects close to each of their hearts.

So far, the show has featured The GC on Essex, Mel B on the Spice Girls, Alison Hammond on television and Katherine Ryan on the Kardashian family.

A festive special of the gameshow is set to air on Christmas Day at 6pm on BBC One.
