Gemma Collins has shared her joy at how much her life has changed in recent years, after receiving a box of designer goods from Valentino.
The reality star, 40, felt like she was living Lady Gaga’s life as she shared a video of a huge parcel that had arrived, telling her followers: ‘OMG, OMG, massive box alert, arrives at the house. What is it? I’ve not ordered anything. OMG, Valentino have sent me, wow, a gift. Valentino I love you!’
Taking the beautifully wrapped red boxes out of the outer packaging, Gemma gushed over the gift she had received, which was tied up with red ribbon, as she reminisced on earning just £50 a day at the start of her reality TV journey on The Only Way Is Essex.
‘Woohoo, what a lucky girl I am,’ she told her fans. ‘I cannot believe I once started out on Towie, getting paid £50 and now I’ve got Valentino.
‘This is just the dream. This is Lady Gaga stuff happening right here, right now in my life. So I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.’
Using her own come-up as motivation for her fans, The GC continued: ’10 years down the line, Valentino are sending me gifts. And do you know what guys, let this be inspiration to you. No haters here, like just dream big.’
Gemma was so moved by how much her life had gone from GC to Gaga, she added: ‘I now know what big stars feel like because I am reduced to tears right now, sorry this is so extra but £50 a day I started my career on.’
She added: ‘Never stop believing in yourself and only surround yourself with the ones that see the magic in YOU. @maisonvalentino @yigit @ionegamble THANKYOU I feel like @ladygaga right now.’
Although Gemma is yet to reveal what the gift contained in all its glory, it appeared to be items of clothing as she lifted out a hanger, unzipped the garment bag and gave fans a tantalising glimpse at the dark material within.
If it’s good enough for Gaga, it’s good enough for The GC.
