Gemma Collins may have soared to fame on TOWIE, and be the undisputed Queen of reality TV, but is looking to pursue another venture.
The 41-year-old appeared on the ITVBe series for the best part of a decade, until 2019, before singing up for several other shows.
One of the first programmes outside of The Only Way Is Essex the GC signed up for was I’m A Celebrity, where she famously had a meltdown over a helicopter.
Gemma also tried her luck on Celebrity Big Brother, becoming the seventh housemate to be evicted, and the short-lived Splash!, which she featured in alongside MP Penny Mordaunt.
The influencer even put on her skating shoes for Dancing on Ice and tried to find love on Celebs Go Dating, before landing her own reality franchise, Gemma Collins: Diva.
But despite the illustrious reality TV CV, Gemma has revealed she has other ambitions.
On the latest episode of her GC Podcast, she said: ‘I definitely want to go into more of an acting role, a movie role, that is something that I do dream of doing.’

However, Gemma stated her main aspiration was to be ‘happy’, explaining: ‘It’s to be happy, so firstly my future ambition is to be happy.’
She continued: ‘And to hopefully buy some land close to my house and put some animals on there – donkeys, horses, dogs.

‘I want to give animals mistreated a beautiful home and be with the animals.’
Gemma, who is reported to be worth millions, recently spoke out about the cost-of-living crisis, revealing she too was feeling the pinch.

She said: ‘I might be the GC but I am even in the cost of living crisis. I am literally turning all my lights off. It’s not a joke.’
Gemma – who has shared a picture on Instagram using candles to light her home – is worried about the potential impact of the ongoing crisis, but she is still determined to enjoy Christmas.
