Gemma Collins Sets Up Cameras In Her House For New Reality Show ‘Diva On Lockdown’

Gemma Collins has refused to let lockdown derail the return of her show Diva Forever - so she's made some adjustments.

The reality star is still launching her ITVBe show under a new title: Diva on Lockdown.

You can NEVER accuse Gemma Collins of being tapped into the zeitgeist.

And of course the name of the 39-year-old's reality show isn't the only part undergoing some changes. Instead of following Gemma's life in her native Essex, the show will follow the mega diva as she deals with the coronavirus lockdown.

According to the channel, we'll see how Gemma is adapting to being in lockdown, filmed with fixed-rig cameras installed in Gemma's home.

In the words of ITVBe: "Before the lockdown, successful business woman Gemma Collins was searching for her new dream home and not only rubbing shoulders with famous faces, she was also mixing in Royal circles.

"With Gemma closing the doors to her Brentwood shop, will the lockdown put her dream home and future in jeopardy?"

Speaking on her reworked show, Gemma explained: "We were in the middle of filming my new series of Diva with loads of exciting stuff planned. But as you know, we've found ourselves in the middle of a pandemic. So here we are now...

"I'm standing in my living room, with fixed rig cameras all over my house to bring you Diva on Lockdown. You want the GC, so the GC found a new way of working. You're going to see everything that I do in isolation. We'll all be on our journey together."

The former TOWIE star said: "I'm being filmed and I've also got the producers speaking in my ear so if it sounds as if I'm talking to myself...well maybe sometimes I am. I can guarantee though, what you see will definitely be 100% authentic GC. I hope it cheers you up in these difficult times."

Commissioner Paul Mortimer commented: "Gemma has proven in all her previous outings across ITV that she is a star who thrives on audience and public interaction.

"Both generous and warm, the GC is one of the most gregarious personalities in the UK. ITVBe is therefore very grateful to her for finishing production on her new series whilst on lockdown."

There's no official release date for Diva on Lockdown, but ITVBe say we can expect it soon.
