Great news for Gemma Collins fans, she is not completely done with television after all and is set to appear on this year's TOWIE Christmas special. Shortly after arriving back in the UK from her stint on I'm A Celebrity, she revealed that she was very "sorry" if she let anyone down but she "was in a real bad way".

Collins endured a nightmare time while down under during filming in the jungle and ended up leaving the show after just 72 hours. This was the minimum amount of time that she was contractually obliged to stay on the show without having her pay packet affected. After her dramatic exit, Collins vowed that she was finished with TV forever.

Her brother Russell revealed in an interview to Heat magazine that Gemma was in a "fragile" state before filming ever began on I'm A Celebrity. He said "It's the lowest I've ever known her to be. I think the events before going were devastating for Gemma, and she went out there feeling very vulnerable and very insecure. To see her upset in the jungle was heartbreaking. It was tragic."

Thankfully though, Collins has re-examined her original decision to back away from television appearances and a source close to the TOWIE star told the Mirror "Gemma’s first thoughts after the jungle were to contact the producers and secure her spot in the end-of-year special. She’s an Essex girl at heart, so that’s where she feels at her most confident and best."

The source continued "She did think about taking some time off because she has been having such a difficult spell recently. But then she realised that she feels at her absolute best when she is surrounded by her Essex mates." The TOWIE Christmas Special will air on ITVBe on the 10th of December at 10pm and will be an hour long meaning fans can get their TOWIE christmas fill.
