Danielle Armstrong has apologised for the fat jibe she aimed at Gemma Collins on last night’s episode of the reality show.
A blazing row erupted at James ‘Arg’ Argent’s food party after Danielle and boyfriend James Locke accused Gemma and Bobby Norris of “shit-stirring” in their relationship.
Gemma threw a drink over James who branded her a “two-faced slag”, a “fucking silly old tart” and a “bully”. As the situation became more heated, Gemma shouted at Danielle “you’re fuck all darling”, prompting Danielle to shout back “oh go and sell some cars you fat silly bitch!”.
Fans of the structured reality series took to Twitter to express their outrage at the weight jibe, while Gemma’s TOWIE friends Ferne McCann and Sam Faiers have also criticised Danielle over the comment.
Apologising for the insult on Twitter, Danielle tweeted:
I’m really disappointed in myself for making a nasty comment on Gemma’s weight, regardless how angry I was it was unacceptable. Xx
