Gemma Collins is reportedly set to sign a £1 million deal for her own reality TV show
Gemma Collins is set to sign a £1 million reality show deal.
The former 'TOWIE' star reportedly impressed Channel 5 bosses so much during her stint on 'Celebrity Big Brother' that they are set to offer her the huge sum to star in her own show.
A source said: "Execs reckon Gemma is the standout star of this series of 'CBB'.
"Everyone has an opinion on her. She isn't the most popular but she's the most entertaining.
"Gemma's years on 'TOWIE' mean she knows how to play up to the camera and make great TV."
Celebrity agent Barry Tomes told the Daily Star: "Gemma is likely to make a lot of money, definitely. She could easily get £1million by the end of the year.
"She has played the game very well. She knows notoriety pays off. If she hits the ground running she'll do well.
"There's a big market for British reality stars in America and Canada so Gemma could even go global."
Gemma befriended Kim Kardashian West's best pal Jonathan Cheban on the show and revealed she plans to visit him and Kim in Los Angeles.
She said: "You know what, I love Jonathan whether he's friends with the Kardashians or not.
"He has invited me over there for a month and he has invited me to meet the Kardashians, so yeah I'm very much looking forward to that trip - bring it on baby.
"He said to me, 'ditch the pink, ditch the glitter but the Kardashians will love you either way', so it's all good.
"I'll be out in LA before you know it."
