Gemma Collins welcomes new family member and says ‘I’m so obsessed’

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins has excitedly announced she's welcomed a new family member and told fans she is "so obsessed".

The 42 year old, who found fame on the Essex-based reality TV series, took to Instagram on Sunday to share the happy news with her followers that she's now an "official dog mummy" after recently welcoming a new pet pup into her life.

Gemma excitedly introduced her new whippet named Blue to her fans online, writing: "OFFICIAL DOG MUMMY! Everyone meet BLUE. I'm going to be so obsessed so sorry for the doggie spam #whippetlove".

The reality TV favourite posted a photo of her walking her new pet pup in the countryside. Gemma could be seen looking uncharacteristically casual in the snap, as she sported a black activewear set and baseball cap. She went make-up free as she held up a peace sign and beamed for the camera.

Gemma's close pals and former The X Factor stars John and Edward Grimes, collectively known as Jedward, were on hand to accompany her on her dog walk and shared a photo as they met Blue for the first time.

"Sunday walkies @gemmacollins," the duo wrote as Gemma proudly beamed with her new pet.

It comes after Gemma's latest TV project was revealed, with the TOWIE star set to bare all on this Christmas' charity TV special The Real Full Monty.

In an announcement, ITV teased "jingle bells and baubles galore" as Britain's Got Talent's Ashley Banjo and Loose Women panelist Coleen Nolan reel in another batch of brave celebrities to raise awareness of live-saving cancer checks.

Stripping off alongside The GC will be TV presenter Julia Bradbury, actress Sherrie Hewson, Dancing on Ice pro skater Vanessa Bauer, Death in Paradise's Victoria Ekanoye, ex-royal butler Paul Burrell, footballer Ashley Cain, England rugby international Ben Cohen, Nick Collier – better known as Ella Vaday from RuPaul's Drag Race – and fellow TOWIE star Pete Wicks.

This upcoming programme not only sees them battling their fears of being nude in public, The Real Full Monty also reveals the personal inspirations for why they've each decided to get involved.

Numerous celebrities have appeared in the Christmas TV special over recent years, including the likes of Hollyoaks cast member Jamie Lomas, Love Island's Shaughna Phillips, athlete Colin Jackson and McFly's Harry Judd.
