"Demanding" Gemma Collins Was Allegedly Axed From Strictly Lineup

Gemma Collins was apparently set to don the sequins for Strictly Come Dancing this year... 

However, it has been reported that the fiesty reality star was shown the door because of "diva" behaviour.

Gemma was allegedly considered for the Strictly line-up. 

The 34-year-old was allegedly booted out of the lineup in the run-up to the BBC talent show, when TV bosses grew tired of her "demanding" behaviour.

A source apparently told the Daily Star:

"Gemma was quite demanding when it came to pre-series filming commitments.

"Her diva persona is a hit with fans but didn’t go down well at Strictly."

The TV star could be set to star in The Jump. 


Rumours are swirling that the former TOWIE star will hit the slopes instead of the dancefloor in the upcoming series of The Jump.
