Gemma Collins to return to The Only Way is Essex

Gemma Collins is set to return to 'The Only Way is Essex'.

The flamboyant blonde bombshell quit the reality TV show last year but has decided to make a sensational guest appearance in the new series to support her best friend Bobby Norris after his pet pooch was mauled by another dog.

A source told The Sun Online: "Bobby is devastated after what happened to Beau, it was so horrible and Gemma just had to be there for him. They're so close and Bobby is just so upset about losing Beau and Gemma decided to come back to the show to to support him."

This won't be the first time the 35-year-old star - who's known as 'The GC' - has come crawling back to the show as she also made a cameo earlier this year for one episode.

Meanwhile, Bobby recently took to his Twitter account to announce that his beautiful four-legged friend - named Beau - was attacked by a larger dog and he sadly lost his life.

In the since-deleted tweet, he wrote: "Absolutely heartbroken to announce that whilst on a walk with my baby Beau, he was mauled to death by another dog. Owners should take responsibility for their pets to avoid these tragedies. There's no such thing as dangerous dogs, just dangerous owners."

Meanwhile, it's believed little Beau's funeral is set to play out on the show next week on ITVBe at 10pm.
