On Sunday, the 39-year-old urged her followers to keep calm amid the current coronavirus pandemic, and spoke of a "concerning" video she had seen about toilet roll shortages in supermarkets.

Beneath a sunny photo of herself unwinding on a yacht while holidaying, Gemma wrote: "Happy Sunday beautiful people. This is a message from your queen… I am speaking… I saw a very concerning video that there was no toilet rolls left in the supermarkets whilst being away! This is all I'm gonna say, we must keep calm and carry on. Happy International Women's Day."
Many of Gemma's fans were quick to thank her for the words of wisdom. One wrote: "Thank you Gemma, exactly. Stay calm," with another adding: "The queen has spoken!"

Gemma is known for her outspoken approach on social media, however, in February, it wasn't her words that stunned fans, but her hair! The TV star took to Instagram to reveal that she'd had her hair cut into a short bob, leaving followers in awe of her gorgeous new look.
