Gibson found fame when she won the 11th series of Big Brother in 2010, and went on to take part in Ultimate Big Brother alongside celebrity housemates, as the reality show came to an end on Channel 4.

During her time in the house Gibson fell for Aussie housemate John James Parton, 37, known as JJ.

The pair continued to date for just under a year after the show came to an end.

Gibson said of their split: "We spent every minute of the day with each other in the Big Brother house and moved in straight away after leaving the show. We didn’t want to be apart.

"But the honeymoon period was over. We argued all the time. John wanted me to stop weeing with the toilet door open and I wanted him to stop moaning and to see things from my point of view."

But the couple split in 2015 and ended up exchanging insults on social media.

Gibson said of the break up: "The passion is slowly drifting and now it's virtually non-existent. I feel like it's the right thing to do at the moment."

She shared messages he had sent her trying to rekindle their relationship on her social media account, claiming he had contacted her despite having a new girlfriend. In since deleted tweets she accused him of borrowing money from her without paying it back and called him a "snake".

Baby Daddy

Gibson began dating property developer Terry in 2017 revealing they had already known each other for 20 years.

She announced she was pregnant in May 2018, at the same time as sharing she had suffered a miscarriage in late 2017.

Gibson said of their romance "I've always been with men who I've had to look after, and I knew that having kids with them would make my life a struggle.

"But Terry is brilliant - he's been a friend of the family for almost 20 years, so I know he's a good guy."

The couple welcomed Reggie-James in September 2018 but split when he was five months old.

They continued to co-parent their son and during the coronavirus pandemic Terry moved in with Gibson to help look after Reggie.

But she revealed in December 2021: "He's [Terry] moved out now. I'm choosing to do it on my own for a little bit at the moment."

Cameraman companion?

In January 2023 Gibson travelled to the romantic city of Paris to film for This Morning.

She said: "Sam Morter, who I was pictured with at the Eiffel Tower. He's my cameraman. I am still single. I am like Sam Morter's auntie. I'm a very, very proud auntie, he works very, very hard he's a very good cameraman and we're all very close at work. We spend a lot of time together. So we're very close, but not that close.
