Gemma Collins ‘never got a thank you’ for saving ex James Argent’s life three times

Gemma Collins has said that she has "never got a thank you" from her ex-boyfriend James Argent, despite claims she "saved his live three times".

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma, 40, dated James, 34, on and off from 2011 until last year.

The pair finally called it quits last year after he branded her a "hippo" and "fat f**k" in a string of text messages.

Now, Gemma is in a happy relationship with Rami Hawash, whom she recently revealed she is engaged to.

After moving on from Arg, who has since showed off his 11 stone weight loss, the GC has candidly discussed her relationship with James, during which he battled an addiction to cocaine.

Gemma has now claimed she saved a now-sober James' life three times but is yet to receive a thank you from him.

Speaking in an interview with The Sunday Times, Gemma said of ex James: "I saved him from death three times, never got a thank you."

When asked about saving Arg's life, Gemma added she came to his rescue "loads of times".

She recalled: "I was filming Dancing on Ice and I’d had a phone call, and they said no one had been able to get hold of him.

"I just knew instinctively to ring an ambulance. I’d had a lovely day, all of a sudden the stomach’s churning …

"I arrive at Whipps Cross Hospital, see him in a state.

"In that room, looking at him, thinking, 'I’ve got to go and film again tomorrow, this is too much!'

"The next day he’d discharged himself. Thought he doesn’t want the help, she sighed. "You can’t go out with an addict."

Gemma has since rekindled her romance with Rami Hawash, whom she dated on and off for three years until 2014.

The pair even got engaged in Christmas 2013, with businessman Rami hiding a diamond ring in a Christmas pudding.

But, months later the pair called it quits. Earlier this year Gemma and Rami rekindled their romance the the GC has since embraced becoming a step mum to Rami's three year old son Tristan.

She has even paid tribute to Rami's ex-wife for the "greatest gift" of being a stepmom.

Speaking in her podcast, Gemma gushed: "I thought I would share my personal biggest highlight of the year. I think it would be falling in love and thinking it would never happen for me.

"I’ve had the biggest gift of my life, something that money can’t buy and that is my beautiful stepson, who I love so much. I’m very grateful that we have such a wonderful relationship, myself and Rami with his mum, the beautiful Fernanda."
