Gemma Collins reveals she's bought her 'dream Essex home' after being inspired by dad's coronavirus battle

GEMMA Collins has bought her dream Essex home after her dad's terrifying coronavirus battle.

The Towie star said her house purchase "has finally gone through" and the news delighted her poorly dad Alan who is being treated for Covid-19 in hospital.

She said on BBC podcast, The Gemma Collins Podcast: "When I took my dad to see the house he absolutely loved it.

"I told him in the hospital dad the house has all gone through and i just see lights in his eyes. I am so excited about it.

"All in all it has been a positive positive week for me. "

The 39-year-old star's parents Joan and Alan tested positive for Covid-19 before Christmas — and her dad said when he was first diagnosed he felt so rough he would "rather be dead".

Last week, the distressed star revealed her dad was "literally fighting for his life" in hospital after catching the deadly bug.

His battle has left Gemma adamant to follow her dreams as she opened up on her horrible few weeks on her podcast.

She added as she opened up to listeners: "I have had such a distressing time due to both my parents having Covid.

"I finally got a call from the doctor to say that my dad has been keeping really stable. And he is coming down off of his breathing masks.

"We're hoping to have him home with us next week …

"When it happens so close and within your family it literally tears you apart.

"And our house is not the same without my dad and it has been such a scary time because we just haven’t known how he was going to be.

"And if he was going to make it – there were moments where we all had to have the chat about you know what if dad doesn’t pull through."
