Gemma Collins’ Net Worth – Can She Really Afford Her Lavish Lifestyle?

We’re looking at Gemma Collins‘ net worth – can you guess how much the TOWIE diva is worth?

Gemma Collins is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but no one can deny that she brings drama, diva behaviour and absolute sass everywhere she goes.

We’ve loved every single iconic GC moment from when all looked on in absolute admiration as the bootilicious TOWIE star stole away her plentiful ‘candy’ from the gutted James Argent to that orange dress. It’s DEFINITELY time to accept that the GC is one of the greatest gifts reality TV has ever presented to us…

Let’s face it – with appearances on Dancing on Ice, I’m A Celeb and Splash! our Gem is ALWAYS is constantly on our gossip radar.

With designer handbags, lavish holidays and private chauffeurs, it’s no secret that Gemma Collins’ net worth is substantial, but just how much cash does she have to splash?

She’s in the millions, but how much exactly is she worth?!

Lets start from the beginning…

Her TOWIE Career

Th bubbly blonde started her TV career in 2011 on reality series The Only Way Is Essex after Julie Childs – mother of GC’s friend Amy – informed producers about her. Gemma was a car saleswoman at the time but left her job after she was hired onto the series.

GC On Dancing On Ice

The queen of Essex swapped her Louboutins for skating boots in last season’s Dancing on Ice. We all know the GC has a non-nonsense attitude, a bunch of hilarious one-liners and a primma donna personality – and she certainly didn’t tone it down for the show.

As well as causing drama between the guest stars, Gemma also made news for publicly calling out Jason Gardiner for ‘selling stories about her’.

After a spate of tabloid headlines about her work ethic on the show, GC confronted Jason Gardiner – one of the show’s judges – on live TV accusing him of ‘selling stories‘ about her.

After he judged Gemma’s dance as ‘all over the place’, she really wasn’t having any of it:

“Maybe if you didn’t sell stories on me, maybe I wouldn’t have been so upset this week…

…So take that. Boring. Next.”

Awkward? Definitely.

Collaborating With The GC

Like any clued-up Instagrammer, Gem has worked with fashion lines (we’ve all seen that Boohoo advert), makeup brands and featured in other advertisements for companies like Netflix for their Orange Is The New Black ad. She also (on the regs) runs sponsored posts on her social media accounts.

Her Personal Endeavours

Aside from her work on TV, to make ends meet, Gemma ran a clothes boutique in Brentwood which had made a comfortable £56,000 profit in 2017. However, the shop’s profits plummeted and it went into liquidation last year with around £80,000 debt.

Other TV Shows Adding To GC’s Net Worth

Collins is a regular face on our screens – you might’ve seen her presenting segments for ITV on This Morning. She’s also made appearances on Loose Women, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Celebrity Juice, Celebrity Big Brother, Celebs Go Dating and I’m a Celeb.

Most notable, you probably remember the fourteenth series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, where Gemma lasted (an eventful) 72 hours in the jungle…

OK her 2014 stint in I’m A Celeb lasted longer than we ALL thought it would (although we secretly hoped she’d prove us all wrong); having said that, it was still pretty short-lived. From her emotional arrival in a helicopter, to refusing to stomach a bowl of porridge, a lot happened for the GC in a short 3 day stint.

Being in the jungle wasn’t the only time Gemma has brought drama to our screens, she also entered the Big Brother house. It quickly became very clear that the TOWIE personality would struggle to survive on the basics in the house; but things escalated quickly after the producers failed to provide her with heated rollers for her hair.

Oh – and we distinctly remember that time she sent the entire house into meltdown after noticing a ‘ghost’ hiding behind a curtain…

Still, would we expect anything less from our Gem?

Gemma Collins’ Net Worth…

Although Gemma insists “I’m not as loaded as people think I am”, according to Spear’s, she’s worth around £2.7 million – not bad, ey!?
