Gemma Collins Compares 'Magical' Jeremy Corbyn Encounter To 'When Harry Met Sally'

The pair came face to face at the Pride Of Britain awards.

Gemma Collins has spilled the beans on her recent red carpet encounter with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, after their paths crossed at the Pride Of Britain awards.

On Monday, the GC and the JC were briefly introduced at the event, with a clip of the pair doing the rounds online, largely due to the reality star’s excited face shortly after their conversation.

Speaking to The Mirror about their meeting of minds, Gemma revealed: “He said it was a pleasure to meet me, and that he liked my dress - he obviously loved it that I was wearing red. It was like ‘When Harry Met Sally’.”

Revealing she’s a fan of the divisive political figure, she added: “He’s not just for the rich getting rich. He wants to make everything equal.

“He’s got values on education, and he says every child should learn a musical instrument - that’s about giving children something to do, so they’re not hanging around on the streets.

“At his age now - I’m not saying he’s old, old - the fact that he’s out there riding a bicycle and he doesn’t have a car... a lot of people say they’ve got beliefs. But he actually backs what he says.”

She concluded: “Do you know why I love Jeremy? He wants to end hospital car parking charges.

“I’m not being funny, but someone’s died - a member of your family - and you’ve gotta put three quid in the meter?

“It’s just not the time. Your mum has a heart attack, yet you’ve got to rustle around in your bag for £5? It’s not the one.”

Gemma is the latest star to align herself with Corbyn, whose celebrity fans already include grime artist Stormzy and chart-toppers Clean Bandit.

The ‘TOWIE’ star is currently gearing up to make her debut on ‘Dancing On Ice’ in January, admitting she’s not sure exactly how things are going to go down when she hits the rink.
