'The Only Way Is Essex' bosses have reportedly suspended Gemma Collins from the show after she threw a "hissy fit" during filming
Gemma Collins has been suspended from 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The 34-year-old reality star was reportedly booted from the show after she threw a "hissy fit" and stormed off set midway through shooting a scene for spin-off 'The Only Way Is Marbs' - in which she rowed with Vas J. Morgan - because she was upset at always being put into confrontational situations.
A source said: "Gemma hasn't been enjoying filming scenes for the show as much as she once did.
"She told bosses that she was fed up that they kept putting her in confrontational situations.
"After her row with Vas she threw a massive hissy fit -- and the producers bore the brunt of it.
"As she left she threw a glass of champagne in the direction of the bosses."
And Gemma - who quit the last series of 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' after just three days - is said to feel she is a "big star" and doesn't need the show anymore.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Gemma has built up a successful brand and her plus-size clothing range is doing really well.
"She feels that she can be a big star without the show and the stress that comes with it."
A spokesperson for 'TOWIE' production company Lime Pictures confirmed they are "currently not filming" with Gemma.
Her representative added: "She has taken a break from 'TOWIE' filming to focus on some personal commitments."
