The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins was in typically hilarious form as she returned to our TV screens for episode one of TOWIE, series 22.
Following her appearances on Celebs Go Dating, reality TV fans have been fidgeting in their seats, anxiously waiting for another dose of the larger than life 37-year-old.
Well. Gemma is back.
And she didn’t disappoint…

Love is in the … HSBC Joint Bank Account
Boasting all of her classic brash, rude and obnoxious mannerisms, Gemma swooped into TOWIE episode one, spotted opening a joint bank account with on/off lover James ‘Arg’ Argent.
For a woman who was seen appearing on a dating show literally three weeks ago, the scene did rustle a few feathers on Twitter.
One minute Gemma’s on Celebs Go Dating then she’s getting a joint bank account with Arg ? so confused #TOWIE

Nevertheless, Gemma and Arg had decided to join forces, announcing their love to the world with seamless multi-card transactions, dual signature clearances and all that jazz.
Honestly, look how serious Gemma and Arg’s relationship is…
Gemma went on to give Arg plenty of backhanded compliments as she explained their need for a joint bank account.
Gemma said: “James has really grown up recently, and up until now, he’s 30 years old and has never had a direct debit.”
“ he’s 30 years old and he’s not even had as much as a direct debit “ ??? oh my god Gemma is hilar ! ! #TOWIE

£1,000 per week!
Alright for some, eh.
Gemma told the financial advisor – whether real or actor we don’t know or care – that she wanted to save £1,000 per week for the couple’s holiday home in Spain.
Arg wasn’t so sure about her investment plan, mind…
More Staff than Mariah Carey
The pair fell into a detailed discussion over who spent more money, with the answer leaving Arg to sit and point directly at Gemma. Obviously.
Gemz did provide us with a little reasoning to her extravagant spending habits, however.
She said: “I’m a big roller, so I earn well, I spend well.”
Gemma confessed that she often has a masseuse at the house, leaving Arg to quip the quote of the series so far.
Gemma in a Smart Car
The scene ended with Twitter in stitches as Gemma reached out to Arg with a touching compromise.
Agreeing that she could swap her Range Rover for a Smart Car if it meant an increase in their savings, social media blew up with visions of Gemma squeezing out of a neon ForTwo.
She’d definitely get the model with eyelashes stuck to the front of its headlights, too…
I would pay good money to see gemma Collins getting shoe horned into a smart car #towie
