JEMMA Collins went out of her way to celebrate her father’s birthday.
The former Towie star, 41, marked the special day by hosting a dinner party for her beloved father, Alan.
The TV darling decorated the living room at her £1.3 million Essex mansion with blue and gold balloons, matching dining table decor and a huge personalized name tag.
Gemma pushed the boat away with a special cake in the shape of the legendary ship of the 60s pirate radio station Caroline.
The celebration kicked off after Gemma recently showed off her three and a half stone weight loss in a maxi dress when she posed with her father.
She beamed as she hugged her father, who looked elegant in a blue shirt.
The Diva Forever star posted a rapturous tribute to her old man in the caption: “ALL MY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE MOST AMAZING PERSON EVER.
“I love you so much, they don’t love you anymore, that’s the holiday.”
“Thank you for being my father, I’m very lucky.”
Her mom Joan quickly commented, “My beautiful family, I’m so lucky and blessed ❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
Then one fan added, “Happy birthday Gemma’s dad” while a third continued, “Happy birthday your dad 🍾🥂🎂.”
Gemma often talked about the influence her parents had on her life.
After being diagnosed with Covid-19 during the pandemic, Gemma pleaded with her fans to stay at home and continue to follow the rules.
She told the media that he said he would “rather die” than fight the virus.
Meanwhile, talking to YOU in 2018Gemma revealed that her father was after her money, and if she wanted to throw it out, she had to walk past him first.
She stunned Piers Morgan last year when she admitted that her father was “in control” and gave her an allowance.
She revealed that her father is now giving her £3,000 a month allowance after spending £50,000 in just two months.
Gemma told Pierce: “I’m a spender – my father called me an absolute disgrace, I spent £50,000 in two months at Knightsbridge.
“It was £1,000 a day for two months, but I was going through a bit of a hard time.”
She confessed: “I felt disgusted with myself; I was absolutely crazy about Gucci – shoes, bags, coats – I stayed at the Dorchester almost every night of the week, for £600 a piece, I won and dined there.
“I became completely massive, I could barely walk – it was kind of self-destructive, and I’m glad my father took my card from me, as I’m telling you now that I would have been in trouble. “
Gemma went on to tell Pierce that her father was in control of “everything”, but she asked for extra money if she was going on holiday or shopping in London, fearing her card would be rejected.
Admitting that Gucci had previously denied this, she explained: “I have a budget, I receive an allowance every month – only £ 3,000.”
