Why do Saffron and Gemma Collins no longer speak?

Saffron recently confirmed that she had gone her separate ways from her former BFF Gemma Collins.

Speaking to TOWIE's Bobby Norris on FUBAR Radio she explained: "'Me and Gemma no longer talk. I wish her all the best and that's it really.

"Me and Gemma were good friends for a long time. I worked with her in the clothing and we were good friends. We were like sisters really and we rowed like sisters as well as loved like sisters."

Saffron appeared on Gemma's own show Diva Espana before then joining the cast of TOWIE in 2018 and has been branded a "GC wannabe" by trolls on Twitter, and called a "Gemma Collins understudy" by Chloe Brockett.

But when it comes to why the pair are no longer pals, Saffron's lips are firmly sealed, but it appears there's a bit of tension: "There are reasons but I'm not willing to discuss them. We've gone our own separate ways. She's successful, I wish her all the happiness, best and that's it."

Saffron told her best pal Bobby Norris, who she was spotted getting caught up in a flood, that lockdown had made her think: "I really realised who my true friends were in that time.

"People that you could just pick up the phone to and I realised that I'd wasted a lot of energy and time on things that I shouldn't have. Because at the end of the day, you've got to be happy with yourself."

Who is Saffron Lempriere dating?

Saffron is currently single on TOWIE and recently told her close pals Georgia Kousoulou and Tommy Mallet that she would love to have what they have.

As she sat down with the couple, who recently celebrated six years together, Saffron announced that she wanted to move out of home but would only do it with "someone else".

Saffron has been pretty quiet about who she has dated in the past and is also relatively private about her family and home life, only sharing glimpses on her Instagram page.

Why did Saffron and Chloe Brockett argue?

Saffron and Chloe Brockett clashed on the TOWIE finale after she went to speak with her ex Harry Lees, just a few days after he had split from Frankie Sims.

Chloe was accused of flirting with her former flame too soon after his split which had upset Frankie. Saffron called out Chloe in a fierce spat, with Chloe storming off and throwing her umbrella in anger.
