Gemma Collins has thanked her new bestie, Piers Morgan, for supporting her through her Dancing on Ice dramas – and will even take him on holiday.
The Good Morning Britain host has been outspoken in support of Gemma while she has appeared on the skating show, as she has incurred quite the number of dramas.
There were rumours of her threatening to quit, napping backstage, both of which she denied, as well as her shock fight with Jason Gardiner and tumble on the ice.
And yesterday, she made it through to the next round in a surprising turn of events, which some have even branded a "fix."

But today she appeared on GMB to thank Piers Morgan, who she now "loves from the bottom of her heart."
She said to him: "Thank you all for your support, I can’t thank you enough. I love you so much. I’m going to treat you to a holiday.
"You getting behind me, you’re such a powerful voice. Everyone was saying I couldn’t do it, to have you speak up for me. You boosted my confidence."
After she said this, Piers continue to show his support, adding: "There are a lot of people who do these dance shows, they can dance and they never impress me. But you are like me on the dancefloor, it’s hard work.

"I really admire your guts and I think the public are beginning to really admire it too. When you fell over and got back up, that was ballsy."
Gemma was very grateful for the support, and told her new best mate: "To be honest with you, when I came out the week before there was no big smoke and mirrors, it was just me skating. This week I’m really grateful to everyone voting me back.
"It’s not that I haven’t been trying, I’ve been in agony. It wasn’t the next day after the fall, it was two days later the agony set in. The pain come out and then the shock set in, then it was my birthday last Thursday and I didn’t do a thing."
Gemma also said she feels more "energetic" and has "a whole new outlook on life" since losing a whopping two stone in the competition.

Fans were shocked when Saira Khan went home this weekend rather than Gemma, as her fans backed her to stay in the competition despite, as some people have suggested, her routine was not the most technically advanced.
Dancing on Ice airs on Sunday at 6pm and Good Morning Britain airs weekdays frm 6am on ITV.
