But after a day’s reflection, it looks like the TOWIE star might be finding the whole debacle less painfully funny and more, well, painful.
It’s now been reported that Gemma is considering suing the BBC over the incident. “I’ve got to consult a lawyer,” she told The Sun. “The BBC, they’ve not been in touch with any compensation or anything – or even an apology.”
Adding that she was “overwhelmed by everyone’s support” following the tumble, Gemma not-in-the-slightest bit exaggerated when she said: “If we just take a minute and watch that clip back, it could have been the end of The GC. I can’t back down from it.”
The incident unfolded when Gemma was announcing Love Island as the winner of the best TV show prize, and a trap door opened up beside her to welcome the winners on stage. But she didn’t see the hole and fell right into it, almost bumping off Amber Davies, Marcel Somerville and Jamie Jewitt in the process!
