JAMES Argent revealed his heartbreak at being apart from Gemma Collins during lockdown – as fans begged him to propose to her.
The 39-year-old star and Arg have been on and off for years, and had been recently forced apart due to his stint in rehab.
And though they were spotted going for a walk together as lockdown began, James has now revealed they are isolating in separate homes.
Ahead of the launch of Gemma Collins Diva On Lockdown tonight on ITVBe tonight, he shared a romantic photo of the pair on Instagram.
He said: "Lockdown absolutely sucks without you GC but I understand you have to entertain the nation & put a smile on peoples faces at this difficult time! #imissyou #wellmeetagain"
Some fans were left confused by the romantic snap, thinking Arg had proposed to Gemma, while others were begging him to pop the question.
One said: "You should marry GC. Just saying!"
Another said: "Thought you'd proposed for a minute"
As one more said: "Can u both pls just get married already"
But busy businesswoman Gemma is currently in a "whirlwind of emotions" as cameras film around her home in lockdown.
The reality TV star says it feels like she's back on Big Brother as producers had to take drastic action to ensure her show Diva continued.
Ahead of the launch of Gemma Collins Diva On Lockdown, Gemma said: "It’s bizarre. We’d planned the whole series and were meant to be going here, there and everywhere, but we just haven’t been able to do it.
"But as I always do, I wanted to make the best of every situation and I do believe we’ve been able to make a fantastic series.
"Like Marilyn Monroe was sent out to entertain the troops in the war times, I realised that the country may need the GC for entertainment and that’s what I want to give with this series.
"I’m a reality queen and I want people to see the realness. But I’m not gonna lie, putting the fixed cameras in my home was like being back on Big Brother again, but without a bunch of annoying people around me."
The first episode we filmed before lockdown, but the next two episodes show how Gemma is coping with life in lockdown.
Gemma added: "It’s a whirlwind of emotions, I'm sure it's the same for everyone.
"One minute I’m loving it, then I’m not, then I’m ringing all my mates and what I’ve noticed is that everyone goes through all these different emotions."
Gemma says she's a "free spirit" so was affected by the routine of isolation.
As well as keeping in touch with friends, Gemma has taken up some new hobbies.
"I took up cake making, which I liked but I prefer my cakes made for me," admitted Gemma.
"I’ve done some seed planting, and some fishing. But the best thing that’s come out of all this for me is that I love a bike.
"I really enjoy riding a bike. I don’t like online workouts or anything like that but one million percent, I’ll keep riding my bike after lockdown. You feel so free when you’re on a bike. It’s good fun."
