Gemma Collins calls off lavish wedding plans as she gives sad money reason

Reality star Gemma Collins confessed that she didn't feel comfortable spending shed loads of money on a huge wedding, and revealed she'd rather elope instead.

Speaking to The Mirror, Gemma said it "ain't the time" to be splashing the cash on a wedding and when asked if she'd planned anything else for her big day, she replied: "Nah, not at all.

"I just think it ain't the time to be spending like millions on a wedding you know? It's not the time, it will happen, to be honest my life is always like I'm on the stage anyway."

Gemma and Rami got engaged this time last year, but met over a decade ago in 2011.

The pair first dated in 2013 and Rami appeared in a few one-off episodes of TOWIE before proposing to Gemma for the first time.

Things sadly broke off several weeks later but having rekindled their romance, Rami proposed to Gemma in December 2021 with a huge diva-worthy diamond ring.

Initially, Gemma had planned to wed Rami abroad and went as far as picking a venue for the big day.

Speaking to Judi Love on The Big Breakfast, she said: "I've finally found the venue. It's going to be in Mykonos, it will be the big event everyone is going to expect."

She also likened her relationship to that of Hollywood stars Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, who recently wed after they originally dated almost two decades ago.

She told Judi: "Darling it ain't gonna be low-key. Every time I see Jen and Ben, that is me and Rami all over.

"So I'm going to ring J-Lo and see if she'll lend me one of her outfits for the evening, so J-Lo I'm putting the call in baby."

But her plans have changed, and after spending years in the spotlight, Gemma has a different plan for her wedding.

"When I get married I'll probably just do it in peace and quiet," she shockingly confirmed.
