Gemma Collins has insisted she won't be returning to 'The Only Way Is Essex'

Gemma Collins has "moved on" from 'The Only Way Is Essex'.

The 40-year-old star shot to fame on the ITV show in 2011, but Gemma has insisted she won't be returning to the programme in the future.

Gemma told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I love 'The Only Way Is Essex'. I wish them all well, but no, I won't do it again, I've moved on."

The outspoken star found fame on the reality series, but she's subsequently appeared on a host of well-known TV shows, such as 'Celebrity Big Brother', 'Celebs Go Dating', and 'Dancing on Ice'.

And Gemma suggested her life and career has moved to a different level in recent years.

She said: "Honey, I've got Valentino dressing me now. Do they really need to see me back down Brentwood High Street?"

Meanwhile, Gemma recently admitted that she's "in love" with Rami Hawash.

The reality star declared her feelings for her former fiance, after he joined her on a recent holiday to Cornwall.

She shared: "Guys, I’m in love. I’ve got a lovely partner and I’m very happy.

"He made his way down on the vacation because obviously he couldn’t cope without me for a few days.

"No, he can cope just fine, he’s got his own business."

The TV star suggested her "beautiful" partner – who was engaged to Gemma in 2013 before they split a year later – won her affections once again by wowing her with his cooking skills.

She added: "Rami is the king of the barbecue and I leave the barbecues to him.

"He’s an amazing cook.

"He’s beautiful, he’s absolutely amazing and he loves doing the barbecues, so me and Ram have had a few."
