Gemma Collins, 40, was spotted at Spaghetti House on Thursday, enjoying lunch with her mum and Real Housewives star, Dawn Ward.

The TOWIE star was pictured surrounded by friends, as well as her mother Joan Collins, at the restaurant in Mayfair, West London.

Also in attendance alongside Dawn and Gemma’s mum was Hollyoaks star Davinia Taylor.

Excited to see her close pal, Gemma shared a post showing Dawn walking towards her, arms stretched and ready for an embrace.

“Rreunited with my BFF!” Gemma exclaimed, via her Instagram stories.

Showing a snippet of the lunch via social media, fans saw Dawn providing the table with some much-needed comic relief by taking a ride on Joan’s scooter.

Gemma looked in good spirits on the lunch date, which took place after she told fans the heartbreak she felt after the loss of her friend, Rhys Alan Smith, who recently passed away in Tenerife.

Rhys Alan Smith, who was living in Tenerife, was a close friend of Gemma's and the ex-boyfriend of fellow TOWIE cast member, Harry Derbidge.

Sharing in a post via her Instagram, Gemma told fans he was "a dear friend that was more like a brother."

In a post uploaded on Thursday, Gemma, who frequently travelled with Rhys, explained to fans that she has “been so down recently and absolutely heartbroken” from the sudden loss.

Dressed in a bejewelled Gucci tracksuit, the reality star went on further to say that her absence on social media was due to her heartbreak and that it didn’t seem important “when real things happen.”

Rhys Alan Smith was found dead in his home in Tenerife and TOWIE stars flocked to pay tribute to him after the devastating news.

Gemma commented on his last post stating: “My heart will never be the same I won’t ever be the same love you Reece.”

Gemma's ex boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent also paid tribute as he shared: "RIP Rhys – a lovely human being and the most beautiful person inside and out."
