TOWIE star Gemma Collins splashes eye-watering £3,195 on a giraffe chandelier

Gemma Collins has splashed the cash by buying a life-sized giraffe chandelier for her home.

The 40-year-old star, who is known by her fans as The GC, purchased the item saying she was “over the moon” with it.

The piece was created by Italian designer Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba and cost the former Towie star £3,195.

It is a white giraffe, which stands at 2.7metres tall, and can be seen holding a chandelier from its mouth.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Gemma tagged Courthouse Interiors in the post with the giraffe taking pride of place in her living room.

She told her 2.2million Instagram followers: “Guys, I’m so over the moon. Look at the stunning lamp.”

However, the giraffe was too tall to fit in the spot she had originally planned to put it so she decided to place it between two sofas.

She continued: "Back down to its original place.”

This is the first time Gemma has bought animal furniture she also splashed the cash on a life-sized horse figure.

Both ornaments will be in her £1.3m home which she bought in May and plans to turn it into a “Buckingham Palace of Essex”.

Gemma turned to close friend Dawn Ward who is a property developer and interior designer to help with the transformation.

According to The Sun, a pal of the star said: “Dawn’s designs are jaw-dropping and life changing. She’s going to make Gemma’s house the Buckingham Palace of Essex.

“It is going to be off the scale when she and her team have finished the work. Even the GC will be lost for words.”

Dawn’s portfolio included luxury homes in London and Cheshire where she currently lives in a £14million home in the north-west county.

It comes as Gemma recently revealed she wants to have a baby and give birth on TV.

The reality star wants to make a fly-on-the-wall series which follows her and partner Rami Hawash, 45.

Gemma who has opened up about her previous miscarriages told The Star: “I’m going to have a baby next year.

“Rami and I are going to try — we’re really excited about that. It’s not so easy for me to get pregnant because of PCOS, so we’re going to make a show about that called Gemma Collins: Making the Baby.

“My agent is in negotiations. I’m ready for a baby now and I can’t wait to be a mum.”
