Gemma Collins wants to be as big as Lady GaGa as she launches new TV show

Gemma Collins: Diva Forever:

Gemma Collins has revealed her hopes of becoming as big as Lady Gaga.

The reality sensation launches her own TV series Diva Forever tonight at 9PM on ITVBe.

Charting the TV legend’s day to day exploits, the five part series will once again lift the lid on the life and times of TOWIE’s fieriest and feistiest female.

It follows Gemma's time on Dancing On Ice and her recent plans to launch a music career.

Gemma said: "I would like to be as big as Lady Gaga, that’s the next ambition. But my first ambition is to continue to be happy first and foremost."

Ahead of the first episode of her new show, Gemma says she doesn't mind being branded a "diva".

"Being a diva is a positive thing. The meaning in Italian is Goddess," she explained. "I don’t regret anything I have ever done on TV. It got me to where I am today. I have always been REAL."

She added: "I’m happy for the viewers to see warts and all, there are no secrets with me, that’s what makes me the number one reality TV queen."

Diva Forever begins at 9PM tonight, Wednesday August 7 on ITVBe.

Following the highs and lows of her relationship with on/off boyfriend Arg, her various career milestones, and her once in a lifetime trip to LA with best friend Jonathan Cheban, Gemma’s life is more eventful than ever before.

With cameras there to capture the inimitable GC throughout the tears, the tantrums and the laughter that inevitably follow, Gemma has some big decisions to make as she embarks upon a brand new chapter in her life – but what does it mean for her future – both in Essex and with Arg?

After a whirlwind year that has seen Gemma take to the ice, kick start a music and pursue her American dreams, viewers will follow every step of the way as Essex’s loudest personality is unleashed across the continent.

You can watch the show online via the ITV Hub.
