Gemma is leaving Channel 4’s Hollyoaks this week after eight years as Carmel McQueen and she told What’s on TV: “I think the show’s absolutely fantastic. Me and my family watch it every year… Yeah, if I got the opportunity it would be a great show to do, but I just don’t know…”
While Gemma was being coy about her participation in I’m a Celebrity, she won’t be too bothered about any jungle creepy crawlies.
How does she feel about spiders? “I don’t mind them.”
Jennifer Metcalfe, who’s also leaving Hollyoaks in a week, added: “It’s full of cobwebs, my bathroom, and there’s about 10-15 mini spiders coming everywhere. I just had to shut the door, tried to spray loads of Lynx on them, that didn’t work…”
So Gemma’s been around to sort them out? “No, I will do though.”
Watch an interview with Gemma Merna and Jennifer Metcalfe about what they’re doing post-Hollyoaks, above.
