The Dancing on Ice diva was spotted enjoying a girls night out with Real Housewives of Cheshire star Dawn Ward to celebrate her daughter Darby’s 23rd birthday.

Gemma, 38, looked confident in a leopard print top, black trousers and strappy sandals as she headed out with her good friend Dawn Ward.

Flashing a V sign to the cameras, Gemma appeared to have put her recent relationship drama behind her.

The outspoken star wore her hair down in soft curls but amped up her make-up wearing a deep bronze smoky eye, false eyelashes and heavy contour.

Gemma added a pop of colour to her nails with a hot pink that matched her friend Dawn’s eye-catching outfit.

The Towie star has fled Essex following the recent fall out from ex-boyfriend James “Arg” Argent.

Arg humiliated his superstar ex last weekend when he posted a video of her asleep and snoring to social media.

Mortified, Gemma reacted by dumping the 31-year-old and kicking him out of her Essex mansion.

To make matters worse, the club singer then supposedly sent vile messages to his ex-girlfriend saying: “You are a fat joke of a woman. An absolute car crash! You’re nearly 40 f***ing years old, you embarrassment.”

Asking her on-off boyfriend of seven years to “please leave my home today”, Arg apparently retaliated by writing: “You fat horrible lump. Nasty mean woman. Who the f*** do you think you are? You’ve got more rolls than Greggs.”

A source close to Gemma, known as The GC, said: “She couldn’t believe he posted a post of her snoring to social media. It was utterly unacceptable and humiliating. She feels Arg wouldn’t have done that if he really loved her.

“Arg has become very nasty since her appearance on Dancing On Ice. It’s just like A Star Is Born. Gemma feels Arg cannot handle the fact her fame has become so much bigger than his.”

Gemma is said to be particularly upset as she helped Arg when he relapsed last year and went back on drugs.
