GEMMA Collins has rushed home to be with her sick mum Joan after splitting with boyfriend James Argent as she admitted: “It’s not been a good week.”
It’s the first time the reality star has referenced her break-up with the Towie star as she shared a sweet snap of her mum who is battling pneumonia.

Gemma told fans on Instagram: “My poor mummy in hospital with pneumonia coming home @joancollins1 to be right by your side I love you #itsnotbeenagoodweek.”
The GC, 38, dumped her long-term partner Arg at the weekend after he posted an unflattering video of her snoring – then told her she had “more rolls than Greggs”.
The 31-year-old then bombarded her with a string of abusive messages about her weight, telling her: “You are a fat joke of a woman. An absolute car crash! You’re nearly 40 f***ing years old, you embarrassment.”
Troubles in their relationship began as Gemma’s fame soared on Dancing On Ice, a source claims.
Gemma was left furious after Arg uploaded this picture
Arg cheered Gemma on from the sidelines during Dancing on Ice but sources say he resents her fame
They added: “Arg has become very nasty since her appearance on Dancing On Ice. It’s just like A Star Is Born. Gemma feels Arg cannot handle the fact her fame has become so much bigger than his.”
As well as dealing with the painful split, Gemma was left rocked when her mum suddenly fell ill as she filmed a cameo on The Real Housewives of Cheshire.
A source close to her told The Sun: “Gemma is absolutely distraught.
The couple often break up and get back together again
“Her mum has been ill for some time but it has taken a real turn in the last day or two and and she has been taken to hospital which has been scary for Gemma, let alone Joan.
“Gemma wants to be there for her mum but has to try and deal with this alongside the fact Arg still hasn’t apologised to her for his comments.”
