Gemma Collins was in full swing of rehearsals for her upcoming GC Big Night Out tour when her mum Joan burst into tears after rewatching her infamous fall on Dancing on Ice.
The pair were in the Manchester Opera House as preparations went underway for Gemma’s first live show at the arena when mum Joan got rather emotional.
A clip of Gemma falling on Dancing on Ice was being played behind the stage as the TOWIE star was rehearsing and caused Joan to shed tears as she caught sight of her daughter’s nasty tumble.
While Joan found the footage clearly upsetting still three years later, Gemma saw the funny side in her mum's reaction as she filmed her with her hands clasped over her face watching the video.
“She always gets upset when she sees me fall over on Dancing On Ice,” Gemma said in the clip posted to Instagram Stories.
"Mum's emotional today because she can't believe that I've got my very own show and I'm touring the country. It's OK. Let it out."
After gathering her emotions together, Joan replied: "I'm all right. I just didn't like seeing you fall over. Such a brave girl, you are."
Gemma was due to kick off her tour in Autumn last year however it was postponed until this month.
And the 41 year old is clearly elated to finally debut her show, informing her 2.2 million followers it had been “two years and half years” in the making, while posting a photo of herself outside the stage door of the Manchester Opera House on Monday.
“It’s HAPPENING 2 and a half years later. I’m so EXCITED to meet you all and have the best night out #gcsbignightout FIRST STOP !!!!! MANCHESTER I love this city, whoop whoop," Gemma captioned.
The reality star gave fans a glimpse of her stage outfit that same day as she posted a video clip of her dazzling ensemble which had been placed on a mannequin.
The design appeared to be a pink form-fitting jumpsuit with crystal embellishments and sheer panelling added across the chest area and along the sleeves and legs, which also displayed trails of glitter.
Gemma’s onstage look was filmed topped off with matching pink feathers added to the arms and the hips, bringing extra glamour to the soon-to-be stage star’s live show ensemble.
