Speaking ahead of next Monday's final, Gina's mum Teresa admitted she tried to stop her from entering the house right up until launch night.
She explained: "I was against her going in.
"I was trying to talk her out of it while she was waiting for the cab to take her to Elstree. She is my baby girl and I don't want her to be among strangers being watched all the time."
And Teresa admitted: "As her mum I'm always concerned when the housemates argue and say cruel and cutting things. But I'm sure that's the same for all the housemates' mum."
But two months on, she confessed: "I think she's doing amazing well. I'm so proud of her."
Meanwhile, Teresa told new! magazine that she felt Hazel O'Sullivan was just another girl jealous of Gina.
She said: "I'm afraid because of Gina's personality and lifestyle she has always had girls being jealous of her.
"Gina just stays away from them. She is just herself. She believes that if people try to be what they are not they will get found out."
