Gemma Collins set for Celebrity Big Brother
Gemma Collins is to go into the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house this summer.
The 34-year-old reality TV star wants to appear on the Channel 5 show to prove that she is over the breakdown that led to her quitting 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here' after just three days last year.
A source told the Sunday Mirror newspaper: "This is Gemma's chance to put the dramas of I'm A Celebrity behind her and show people what she's really capable of. Going into the jungle, Gemma wasn't in the right state of mind. She had so much going on in her life and it all just got too much for her.
"But this time round everything is different. She's happy and feels ready to get stuck into CBB. She wants the public to see the real her."
Gemma was constantly in tears in the jungle last November after a series of fights with her boyfriend at the time Rami Hawash, and there was deep concern for the 'TOWIE' star's welfare while decamped in the Australian outback when she claimed she had malaria.
This year's CBB is set to feature a UK versus USA theme, due to producers being so impressed with the way American gossip blogger Perez Hilton stirred up trouble in January's series.
One name already reportedly secured is former model Janice Dickinson.
