Joey Essex has saved Gemma Collins' life during a kayaking accident while on holiday in Marbella, Spain
Joey Essex has "saved" Gemma Collins' life during a kayaking accident.
The 'Only Way Is Essex' hunk - who is on a Boot Camp holiday in the exclusive Spanish resort of Marbella with the bubbly blonde and their co-star James 'Arg' Argent - saved Gemma from "drowning" after their foray into the sea went disastrously wrong.
Arg tweeted: "Kayaking didn't quite go to plan as the waves were dangerously high and see was rough! Hero @JoeyEssex_ saved @missgemcollins from drowning! (sic)"
Joey added: "Come out to spain to get a tan... Ended up training, harder than anyone... And saving life's from the ocean! @missgemcollins #lifeguard.
"Like a propa Bay Watch scene! #lifeguard #baywatch #whowantstobesaved? #savedbythebell. (sic)"
Meanwhile, Gemma - who is attempting to slim down to a size 12 for the summer - admitted she will "never forget" Joey's heroic actions.
She tweeted: "Shaking so bad I just nearly drowned in the sea @JoeyEssex_ saved my life I will never forget this joey you saved my life thank you. (sic)"
However, the gang's 'TOWIE' co-star Debbie Douglas - Lydia Bright's mum - has warned Joey will never be able to go on holiday without girl's pretending to drown in front of him.
She said: "The only way is Bay watch !! Save me Joey save me. Omg joey next time u go on holiday all the girls will be drowning. (sic)"
