Gemma Collins, who is also a very successful businesswoman, wants a leading role in EastEnders and even said she would “kick Mick and Linda Carter out of the Queen Vic”.

In her dream part, the TOWIE veteran would be a long-lost relative who it turns out the popular boozer belongs to – and she would become the new landlady.

The 40-year-old said she would be Ronnie and Roxy’s “soul sister”.

During the latest edition of her podcast, Gemma was asked by a fan if she would ever appear on Coronation Street.

She said: “I do love the cobbled streets but I’m an EastEnders girl. They should never have gotten rid of Roxy and Ronnie.

“I wouldn’t do Corrie, and I don’t have a northern accent.”

Laughing, she said: “But I would do EastEnders. Get out of my pub!

“I would throw out Mick and Linda Carter. They would be gone. Ian Beale would be gone.

Gemma went on to call out Steve’s cruel remarks about Strictly star Tilly: “I was so upset about the targeting of Tilly Ramsay, and then I got attached to the story because of someone being cruel about me, and do you know what guys? It does upset you when it gets brought to light all day.

“Is the radio station going to deal with this?” she then asked, before calling for fans to “get behind Tilly” and labelling the radio host's comments as “disgusting”.

The Romford-born media personality warned her critics: “Unless you can match what I’ve achieved, don’t even bother."
