Gemma has faced a difficult few months which saw both her parents battle COVID-19, and while her mum has since recovered, her father is still fighting the disease.

On Wednesday the star revealed her father is now ‘in a stable condition’ as she reflected on her family’s battle with the virus. 

‘It literally tears you apart,’ the Essex diva said on the Gemma Collins Podcast.   

‘Our house is not the same without my dad and it has been such a scary time because we just haven’t known how he was going to be. And if he was going to make it…

‘There were moments where we all had to have the chat about you know, what if dad doesn’t pull through.’

Gemma revealed last month that both of her parents had been admitted to hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, as she pleaded with her followers to stay safe and follow the government guidelines. 

She updated her podcast listeners on Wednesday that her father Alan is making steady progress and could return home next week.  

Gemma added: ‘I have had such a distressing time due to both my parents having Covid.

‘I finally got a call from the doctor to say that my dad has been keeping really stable and he is coming down off of his breathing mask. We are hoping to have him home with us next week.’
