Over the years, The GC has made no secret of the fact she wants to take part in ‘Strictly’ (probably because it’s the only reality show she’s got left to cross off her bingo card at this point), but judge Craig cast doubt on this when he suggested she might be a bit low-rent for the line-up.
Having already vowed to make Craig eat his words once, Gemma has now hit out at the long-serving ‘Strictly’ star once again.
Gemma then said she felt she’d bring something different to the hit BBC show, insisting: “It’ll be called the BGC by the time I’ve finished with rumba-ing it up.”
In 2015, Gemma was rumoured to have been ditched from ‘Strictly’ at the last minute, and while BBC bosses usually have a policy of declining to comment on speculation, they made a special exception in this case.
They said: “She has never met with ‘Strictly’ bookers and there were no plans for her to appear on the show.”
Meanwhile, this year’s ‘Strictly’ festive special was recently revealed to have been this year’s second most-watched Christmas Day offering, behind the latest instalment of ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’.
