GEMMA Collins is refusing to be filmed backstage at Dancing On Ice and keeps throwing the crew off the ice when they are trying to film rehearsals.
The crew are said to be fed up with the 37-year-old star’s behaviour and top bods at the show are at the end of their tether.
It comes after the show’s host Holly Willoughby blasted Gemma live on air on This Morning yesterday over her behaviour on the show and threats to quit.
A source said: “Gemma continues to be making life difficult for the crew backstage on the show.
“She’s been refusing to be filmed and keeps throwing the crew off the ice when they are trying to film rehearsals.
“She’s trying to rule the roost and it just doesn’t work like that…everyone is just trying to do their job but they are getting increasingly fed up.
“Dancing On Ice is traditionally a fun show to be involved with but Gemma refusing to being on camera is making life hard for those trying to get out a good, light-hearted show for the fans.”
She also left the studio 25 minutes before the end of Sunday’s live show as she was “bored” and missed 59-yearold actor Mark Little’s exit
Holly, also 37, said: “I love Gemma. I’m a big fan of hers. I love her on the show
But I do think there has to be a bit of professionalism that comes into any work you do, just a bit of pride.”
Co-host Phillip Schofield, 56, said Gemma — whose debut routine drew an extra million viewers — held up the “whole studio” on Sunday afternoon by “having a nap”.
A source said: “Gemma’s a nightmare but is getting away with it because producers know she’s the biggest draw.”
