    "Get that fire exit door, I'm off" – Gemma Collins, An Icon.

    If you've been on Twitter recently, you might've noticed videos of iconic British celebrity Gemma Collins floating around the TL. Honestly, it's probably the best thing that's happened in 2017 so far.

    Where they fuck have all these Gemma Collins vids came from cause they are fucking outstanding

    But for those of you who don't know her, it's time you got introduced to a national treasure.

    1. Gemma Clare Collins got her start on British reality show TOWIE. She was instantly iconic.

    2. Whether she was having an argument...

    3. ...or combatting her deepest fears, she was undoubtedly the star of the show.

    4. And when the guy she was dating asked to draw her like Jack did for Rose in Titanic, Gemma didn't hold back on giving her constructive criticism.

    5. Fast-forward to 2016, and Gemma made an appearance on another reality TV show: Celebrity Big Brother.

    9. It wasn't all dramatics though. Oh, wait...

    when she tried to help peel some potatoes but instead cut through to the bone😂

    10. But she's had iconic moments outside of the Big Brother house, like when she said the dictionary was her favourite book.

    14. There's a video or GIF for every occasion.

    Everyone in my life : "you're so dramatic" Me: " no I'm bloody not" Also me:

    15. And you can 100% relate to any tweet that involves a Gemma Collins reference.

    16. Whether it's about pop culture.

    19. So if you're American, Canadian, Australian, or any other nationality, say hi to Gemma Collins because she's a British national treasure.

    you: stop retweeting Gemma Collins videos or I'll unfollow you me:

    20. Even if she can't say the word "memes"...

    21. And my last recommendation is that you watch her best bits from Celebrity Big Brother. You're welcome.
