Gemma Collins’ secret breakdown on Dancing on Ice revealed by boyfriend Arg

James ‘Arg’ Argent has revealed Gemma Collins has a "breakdown" behind the scenes after falling in Dancing on Ice .

The TOWIE star joined the Loose Women to talk about his girlfriend, Gemma, who has been smashing it in the ITV show, despite accusations of her napping backstage, an argument with judge Jason Gardiner and her most recent drama – falling on the ice.

The panel said Gemma did well in "styling it out," but Arg has revealed how she really does "have a heart," and had an emotional breakdown backstage after she plummeted to the ice in a shocking moment on Sunday.

He said: "I know Gemma better – she got up and put on a smiling face but she went backstage and the runner had to come and grab me because she’s crying her eyes out – she was so embarrassed.

"As much as she loves being The GC she does have heart and thought, ‘Everyone’s going to me fun of me.’

"She had two big ice packs on her knees, crying, and I was like, ‘Look Gemma, get yourself together, you’ve worked so hard in your routine,’ probably the reason why she feel is she put everything into it.

"When we got home I even wanted people to actually see what she was going through. I put a picture on my Insta story, her knees were red raw, terrible bruises.

"She was in real pain and struggling to walk but I said to her, ‘You have to be preapred you have to do the skate-off’ so in her mind she was prepared to do the skate-off.

"But the public keep voting her! The public are on her side, it’s GC fever."

Asked whether Gemma definitely fell, and was not faking it for publicity, Arg had very strong feelings about Gemma’s motives.

He replied: "Gemma, as much as I love her, I don’t want to gas her up but she’s probably the most talked about woman in the country.

"She smashes it every week, she had the row the week before. She’s not going to risk a serious injury to smash her face to pieces and her teeth for publicity.

"She’s the last person who needs publicity at the moment! If anything, she needs a bit less."

Asked whether he has been taking care of her, Arg revealed he even borrowed her mum’s wheelchair to give her a little walk around.

He added: "I made sure her legs were elevated, I was told she needs to go hot and cold so one minute she needed the ice, next she needed to get into a hot bath and I borrowed her mother’s wheelchair for the morning – we got a bit of stick for that.

"She went in the next day… and she got up and put her skates on and the physio said, ‘No Gemma, you’re not skating, and Torvill and Dean wouldn’t let her skate so she lost a day of rehearsal.

"But she wants to prove everyone wrong and get straight on the ice and practise."

Talking more about the impact of the show, Arg added: "I love the show and Gemma has been absolutely fabulous but when it ends it’s going to be a nice eeling for me.

"It’s been a lot of pressure, it’s all eyes on Gemma, we’ve had some amazing moments but then you’ve had other moments where she’s had a hard time from Jason and stories in the press.

"I actually went on the ice yesterday for the first time to give Gemma a bit of support and I have a new found respect for all the contestants… I really take my hat off to all of them, they’ve done absolutely amazing."

Dancing on Ice airs Sundays at 6pm on ITV and Loose Women airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
