Her profile has also been deleted but while Collins’ appears to have been reactivated under a different name Gemma’s has been wiped.
Gemma appeared on Take Me Out in 2014 while she was a student at Leeds University.
Pals told The Sun on her romance with Collins: “Arthur might be banged up but that hasn’t stopped him sweet-talking her from the inside.
“They became romantic last year and are officially a couple.”
The Sun understood that Woodhill chiefs ordered a search of Collins’ cell after learning of the posts yesterday but no phone was found.
It is not known if he has access to a phone or whether someone is active on his behalf.
Collins was jailed for 20 years in December 2017 after throwing a corrosive substance over a crowd at Mangle nightclub in East London in April that year.
In 2018 Collins lost an appeal against his sentence, which was handed down after a jury convicted him of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent and nine counts of actual bodily harm.
Three judges at the court of the appeal rejected his bid.
Lord Justice Simon, announcing the decision, said: “We accept that this was a severe sentence, but these were exceptionally serious offences, and the severe sentence was fully justified.”
