Gemma Collins to make a fortune from Dancing On Ice as she plots lucrative deals

Gemma Collins is going to make a mint from Dancing On Ice as she’s already been inundated with lucrative deals.

Despite causing chaos on the ITV show with her diva-style antics, Gemma looks set to make some serious cash.

The GC left the skating contest on Sunday, and Mirror Online can reveal she’s been having meetings with branding experts to help her capitalise on her raised profile.

Today she met with a brand partnerships manager, who’s job is to "amplify commercial opportunities and brand partnerships for elite on-screen talent".

As well as endorsement deals, Gemma will be looking to land more TV work to make the most of her heightened fame.

An insider told us: "Gemma is obviously very business savvy and is keen to strike while the iron is hot.

"It could end up being a huge step forward in her career."

A source close to Gemma added: "She’s been inundated with offers. Her market worth has shot up since she joined the show."

Gemma – who has been holed up in a five star hotel in London since being axed from DOI – has been busy expanding her business empire in recent years.

As well as having her own clothing line and shop in Essex, she’s previously had deals with brands including HTC, Fake Bake and Boohoo.com.

She’s released two books, Basically: My Real Life as an Essex Girl, and 2018’s The GC: How to Be a Diva.

Last year, Gemma even landed her own Towie spin-off show Gemma Collins: Diva Espana.

There have been plenty of tears and tantrums during her run on DOI, but Gemma managed to hang on in there for five weeks.

Earlier today, her skating partner Matt Evers revealed Gemma nearly quit four times after suffering a series of epic meltdowns.

He told Heart FM : "Gemma Collins did six weeks on Dancing On Ice.

"She was in the jungle [on I’m A Celebrity] for two-and-a-half days.

"There were quite a few times that I thought she was going to walk.

"Three or four times I thought ‘this could be it’.

"I always had to talk her down. If it wasn’t her nerves it was something else.

"There was a lot of conversation between us. A lot of 2am text messages saying ‘you can do this’."

Gemma made a very brief appearance in I’m A Celebrity…. Get Me Out Of Here! back in 2014, quitting just two days after going into the jungle.
