Gemma Collins has kept fans up to date with her home renovations in recent months, and her latest addition is more Ibiza than Essex.
The reality star, 40, proved you don’t need to travel to the White Isle this summer as she set about transforming her garden into Ibiza with a luxury summerhouse.
Gemma showed her followers the progress of the build, with intricately patterned walls and a roof and four sun loungers waiting to be used.
The interior was also given a touch of Gemma’s own style with large white heart ornaments hanging down as well as some lanterns.
Gemma asked one of the workmen what it was like working for her, to which he replied: ‘Fantastic! I’ve had a beer, I’ve been getting cakes today and tea.’
However, it wasn’t only the builders that were roped in to help out with the finishing touches – Gemma’s spray tanner also revealed she had been enlisted to add lanterns to the summerhouse too.

She joked: ‘Come round to give her a spray tan and look at me!’, to which Gemma replied: ‘Honey, we’ve all got to do a bit and chip in.’
Gemma’s no stranger to repurposing her staff for different jobs, as she previously made her manager – who was wearing a full suit at the time – come and water the trees at the bottom of her garden after struggling to reach them with a hose.

Her tanner, Abbie, is clearly used to having a few extra jobs added to her list as she added: ‘Always the way when you come to the GC’s!
‘As always, you come over to Gemma’s, give her a nice little massage and a nice little facial, seven hours later and we’re still not finished with the treatments but the gazebo, the summerhouse, the pool – everything looks amazing. Only about another four hours of work [to go].’
Gemma made sure Abbie was well looked after, however, as she added: ‘I’ll give you a nice glass of wine.’
There’s never a dull day at Gemma’s house.
