Gemma Collins has returned to social media after a brief absence as she had been ‘poorly’, sharing an update on her health with concerned fans.

The TV star posted a photo on her Instagram Stories of a drip that had been inserted in her arm to aid recovery. She has also had a private nurse on hand throughout.

She had the company of her dad Alan, who was hospitalised with Covid-19 in January this year, as he popped round to make a fuss over her.

Gemma wrote: ‘Sorry been quiet guys I have been very poorly but I am feeling like I am back on the mend.’

Posting a further snap of her nurse she went on: ‘Thank you to my lovely private nurse nena for helping me and my lovely @sportiedoc (sic).’

Her following post was hopeful and suggested Gemma is on the mend, with the Towie star adding: ‘Thank goodness I finally feel like I can get back to normal.’

The Dancing On Ice star also revealed a make-up free selfie in which she appeared relaxed with a hand running through her long blonde hair.
