The GC had her say on some of the reports in the press this week surrounding her 'unprofessional' behaviour on the ice skating show.
Gemma Collins has hit back against claims she has behaved 'unprofessionally' on Dancing On Ice.
This comes after This Morning and Dancing On Ice host Holly Willoughby, 37, criticised Gemma's behaviour on the DOI set.
The 37-year-old reality TV star revealed on her Instagram story: "I've been really devastated by the hurtful press reports this week which haven't been true but I'm not giving up, I'm not quitting."

Yesterday Holly shocked fans when she said: “I love Gemma. I’m a big fan of hers. I love her on the show.
“But I do think there has to be a bit of professionalism that comes into any work you do, just a bit of pride.”
Since then, other negative reports about her behaviour at the ITV skating show have come to light - and Gemma took to her Instagram story to address her fans and have her say on the matter.
Filming the messages from rehearsals on the ice rink with skating partner Matt Evers she said: "Me and Matt have been so upset, we were shellshocked. We didn't know what to do, we've been heartbroken."
