Gemma shared details of her finances with Piers

Early on in the interview, the self-proclaimed diva admitted that she earned a million through The Only Way Is Essex alone – and that she bagged £75,000 in one day through Instagram posts.

But her parents began to worry that the cash would end up being easy come, easy go after picking up on their daughter’s expensive taste.

Gemma told Piers: “I’m a spender – my dad wrote me up as an absolute disgrace, I’d spent £50,000 in two months up in Knightsbridge.

“It was £1,000 a day over the cause of two months, but I was going through a bit of a hard time.”

Piers was astounded by her spending

She confessed: “I felt disgusted in myself; I went absolutely crazy in Gucci – shoes, bags, coats- I was staying in the Dorchester more or less every night of the week, £600 a pop, and I was wining and dining in there.

“I got absolutely massive, I could barely walk – it was kind of like self destruction in a way, and I’m pleased that my dad took my card off me as I am telling you now I’d have ended up in trouble.”

Gemma went on to tell Piers that her dad controls “everything”, but she asks for extra money if she is going on holiday or on a shopping trip to London, fearing that her card will be declined.

Admitting that it had been declined in Gucci before, she explained: “I get a budget, I get an allowance each month – only £3,000.

The star is known for her expensive taste

“If it were down to me I’d be driving around in a Bentley, I’d probably move into the Dorchester but that’s not allowed or accepted and I’m really pleased. It keeps me grounded.”

Gemma’s mum and dad, Joan and Alan, were proudly watching the interview in the live studio audience, and the star told Piers that she didn’t have a spoilt childhood – but it was happy, and she credited her dad for her work ethic.

She shared: “There was no money but we had a really lovely childhood, I can remember having my first big birthday party at the Little Chef and really thinking that was a posh restaurant.

“My hard work and tenacity comes from my dad, who used to work all the hours under the sun.”

Gemma has always been incredibly close to her parents and was rocked in December when they both tested positive for coronavirus.

The situation went from bad to worse when her 73-year-old dad was hospitalised with the illness, and Gemma was told that he “might not make it”.

Thankfully, he was able to pull through and the star was overjoyed last month when he finally left hospital – just in time for her 40th birthday.
