Gemma Collins reveals she spent £100 on just ONE Easter egg
GEMMA Collins spared no expense when it came to throwing a big Easter bash for her family, including spending £100 on ONE easter egg.
The Only Way Is Essex star, 40, admitted she "went so over the top" for Easter because the family could not spend Christmas together due to Covid restrictions.
She pulled out all the stops for a lavish Easter celebration rounding off a tough few months which saw both her parents battle Covid-19.
Fans loved seeing her spoil her family at her new 'dream home', with Gemma even revealing she bought a luxury Easter egg worth three-digits.
"It was incredible for me," she revealed on her podcast.
"My dad was so sick at Christmas. It was very touch and go whether he would be alive to celebrate Easter, so I went totally over the top GC style."
Speaking on The Gemma Collins podcast, she added "I had so many flowers in my house.
"The best food, I bought fancy egg cups and I bought an Easter egg that was £100, because we couldn’t celebrate Christmas I went so over the top."
Gemma admitted she would cherish this Easter holiday forever.
"It was so nice to see my brother in law , my sister the children It just was incredible," she said.
"Seeing my dad sitting there eating his hot cross bun is a memory I will treasure forever."
Gem went all out for the Covid safe party and enlisted the help of her PR pal Steph Ledigo to help source a mouth-watering selection of grub, from a meaty Sunday roast with perfectly-crisp Yorkshire puddings to cauliflower cheese.
She catered for al-fresco dining in her lush garden with meat and fruit platters from celebrity favourite, Grape and Fig, while a host of Cadbury Easter eggs awaited her guests as treats.
Not forgetting the decor, the GC hailed herself a "horse mummy" as she showed off her two new ponies joining in the fun at the sprawling five-bedroom barn conversion in the countryside.
She installed a huge pastel-coloured balloon arch next to a white horse figure, taking centre stage in the garden.
Later, the GC shared snaps of her family finally reunited for the special day.
One snap saw her mum Joan, 65, posing in a floral print top with a bunny-ear filter added onto the image while father Alan was content to sit in a garden chair and soak up the spring sunshine.
The pair recently fell ill with coronavirus and, following their Covid diagnosis, Gemma pleaded with her fans to stay at home and keep adhering to the rules as her dad "fought for his life."
