Speaking on This Morning earlier today, the TOWIE star said of her fall: “I must say I’m in a bit of shock still. But I have found the whole experience absolutely hilarious.

“However, I am in a bit of pain this morning, I’m not going to lie. The seriousness of it is… What people don’t see under there is there’s all machinery going on.

“Because the three Love Island guys were coming up on the stage. I just want to apologise, as I wiped them out. They had to go and see the paramedics afterwards.

“You have to dust yourself off. I just wish I hadn’t got so excited and spun round to give them an award.”

Gemma went on to reveal that Jamie and Marcel immediately jumped to her rescue, with the reality TV stars scared that her legs would be crushed by the moving trapdoor.

She added: “They [the Love Island cast] were screaming, ‘Get her up, get her up – her legs are going to be crushed’ because the platform underneath was raising up and my legs were dangling over the end of it.

“So thank you to two Love Island guys. The poor girl there nearly got totally crushed. There was nothing of her.”

Gemma previously made light from her hilarious fall, quipping that she is the “Essex Bridget Jones” as she compared herself to Madonna.
