GEMMA Collins was threatened by a troll who wanted to attack her with a shovel to stop her performing at tonight’s Dancing On Ice final.
It comes after the Towie star vowed to return to the finals of the show following her row with “bully” Jason Gardiner who called her a “refrigerator.'”

Her skate pro partner Matt Evers told the Sun Online: “Gemma has been so excited about getting back on the ice and told fans that nothing was going to stop her. Then one person wrote ‘at least not a shovel.’
“I wrote back straight away ‘I hope this is not serious.’ and reported it to Twitter.
“It’s very scary to think there is someone out there who would want to physically harm her.”

Speaking about plans to stamp out bullying on social media with Gemma, he added: “We hope there’s legislation in the future so people know that bullying on social media is not OK.
“Whether it’s about fat-shaming, race or sexuality. There needs to be consequences.”
The troll hit out at Gemma comes after the Towie star vowed to return to DOI to open the show – despite hitting out at Jason and initially refusing to return to the studios after Jason called her a “refrigerator.”

Meanwhile, the Sun Online has revealed Gemma and Jason will be kept apart for tonight’s show to avoid fireworks.
Now a source said: “Gemma and Jason will be kept separate so they won’t be crossing paths backstage tonight.
“There is still no love lost between them.
“They’re dressing rooms are on opposite sides of the venue so hopefully there won’t be any more explosions between them.”
Gemma is set to return tonight to open the show with dance pro Matt Evers skating to Beyonce’s Crazy in Love.
