The only way isn’t Essex for Gemma Collins – who wants out of the county that made her famous.

Reality favourite Gemma, 42, says the place is “toxic” and is eyeing a move to Surrey, or Wales where her granddad worked down a mine with Sir Tom Jones, 82.

Gemma, who starred in ITV2 series The Only Way Is Essex from 2011 to 2019, said: “I’ve totally outgrown Essex. It’s toxic.

“I really like it in Surrey, Sam Faiers lives there. I do love Wales and I would consider living there.”
