Larger than life reality TV star Gemma Collins admitted to wanting a baby during episode four of The Only Way is Essex.

However, the TOWIE star’s boyfriend, James ‘Arg’ Argent, didn’t seem so keen.

And by that, we mean he literally looked scared stiff!

Shopping List: Boyfriend, Car, Baby

In most TOWIE episodes, we are introduced to Gemma Collins while she is out shopping.

Episode four was no different, although this time around her shopping list was very specific.

Before she had even brought up the serious possibility of a baby with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Arg, Gemma was on the hunt for a family car.

You know, something small and modest that won’t break the budget.

Obviously…

It was here where Gemma was kind enough to give us an insight into her ovulation calendar.

Take note, fellas…

Chatting with Bobby Norris and Chloe Sims, Gemma explained that there are five key days where she needs Arg to be around the house each month.

It kinda sounded like Arg was going to be locked in a cupboard, only called upon to fulfil certain duties.

Poor bloke…

Chloe’s advice was to hold off on the baby chat for now, although Gemma couldn’t stop herself from confronting the subject head-on with her lover.

Making the Transaction

Shopping list in check, Gemma went about the next step in her fast-track plan to have a boyfriend, car and baby.

Admitting that she “fills a void” in her life by spending excessively, Gemma let Arg cotton on that she wanted her next transaction to be in the form of a real-life human baby.

Arg attempted to wriggle out of the idea of a family although Gemma immediately roped him back in with her demanding use of “need”.

Good luck worming out of this one, mate.

Transaction complete, Gemma tried to make the baby-making process sound less like a business proposal.

Even if she did just pitch to her boyfriend as if it was the final round of The Apprentice.

Card Declined

Arg talked through the idea of having a baby with Gemma with his friends, highlighting the fact that the whole thing was ‘The GC’s’ idea.

Arg said: She wants there to be more of a possibility that she can have a child, it could be any time this year that she wants it. That’s what she wants.”

Chloe Sims managed to put Arg off the idea, however, helping him to realise that he’s not mentally ready for such a big commitment.

A baby’s not for Christmas and all that…

With Gemma and Chloe meeting up for dinner later that night, the news of Arg’s doubts travelled back to his lover.

Cue a very heartbroken looking Gemma Collins…
