Gemma Collins ‘blacked out’ and ‘had heart monitored’ before Dancing On Ice fall

The horror fall that left reality star Gemma Collins feeling deeply embarrassed on Dancing On Ice, may have been out of her control, an ITV source has said.

The GC was serenely skating across the ice during Sunday’s live show, when she suddenly hit the deck and slid uncontrollably across the studio ice rink.

It is now thought that 37-year-old TOWIE star may have ‘blacked out’ at that moment and there are claims that she was even strapped up to a heart monitor machine before her routine, amidst fears that there was something not quite right with her.
