Gemma Collins has confirmed that she WILL be back for the Dancing On Ice final.
There were fears that the GC would miss out on the grand finale because of her busy schedule.

However, Gemma told her 1.3m Instagram followers that she will definitely be putting her skates back on for the final.
The TOWIE star put the rumours to bed and insisted she “wouldn’t miss it for the world”.
Gemma posted her message with a video of her hilarious dress-rehearsal fall with professional partner Matt Evers.

Gemma will link up with the rest of this year’s eliminated cast during the final in just over a week’s time.
