Single and Happy Gemma
Insisting that she’s happily single, Gemma told MailOnline that she’s just focusing on herself and her work. After launching her first collection with PrettyLittleThing, she cleared the air behind her alleged ‘new man.’
The rumour that started from TikTok is false according to Gemma who confirmed that she has neither ever met Bugzy Malone nor ever talked to him in real life. The two don’t even follow each other on Instagram. Gemma revealed:
I have never met or spoken to him and we don't follow each other on social media. I am not dating and I am definitely single.
Just after Christmas, I had much-needed time with my family and friends and I am working on myself.
I am not going to date anytime soon and I'm not looking.
On a personal level, I want to work on my happiness and investing time in people close to me, my family and friends and just being content in myself.
Gemma and Winter Love Island
Winter Love Island – where Maya Jama broke a rule – is going to Gemma’s new interest amongst focusing on herself and spending time with her loved ones. After being a part of the show last year, the teenager claimed that it would be ‘odd’ watching it from the side of the screen, but she’ll do it regardless. Gemma said:
It is quite odd, watching it from the other side of the screen.
Since I've been in there and I know what's going on and now watching it from the other point of view again, it is strange. It will be enjoyable to watch and I wish all of the new Islanders the best.
I am probably going to keep quiet and let them do their thing in the villa and see how it all pans out…
