‘If only I had the confidence last year that i have this year I reckon I could have won. It’s so nice to be back on the ice and not fearing it !!!’ she wrote alongside a video of her in which she was wearing an eye-catching pink gown. 

Her time on the ITV show was defined by a huge fall which left her ‘crying her eyes out’ backstage back in January. 

‘My heart completely sunk. I’ve just been with her backstage and she’s crying her eyes out,’ boyfriend James Argent told the show’s hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield  at the time, adding that Gemma ‘really did work’ on her skating skills. 

The Dancing On Ice Christmas special airs Sunday 22 December on ITV at 7pm.

Gemma’s appearance came after a difficult week for the TOWIE star who has been ‘worried sick’ about on/off boyfriend James after he reportedly suffered a second drug overdose in two months. 

Gemma is said to have vowed to stand by Arg and is constantly calling him to check if he’s okay, reports The Sun.

James was admitted to hospital on Wednesday after worried friends raised the alarm fearing he had suffered a drug overdose.

Paramedics rushed to his £1.3million home in South Woodford, Essex where they found the embattled star, 32, ‘disorientated’.

Gemma has apparently been left devastated by the scare and has been throwing herself into Dancing On Ice rehearsals in a bid to distract herself.

An insider told the website: ‘Gemma is worried sick about Arg, when she’s not with him at his home she is ringing him 24/7 to check that he is okay.’

The latest health scare comes less than two months after reports emerged police ‘broke into’ his home after he reportedly failed to return his on-off girlfriend Gemma’s phone calls.

Medics examined the reality star and his parents reportedly insisted they could look after him.
