"It had a spade and stuff with it, but I was like, 'You're going to be using this in the garden when you get home, you're going to dig for the rest of your life with that…14 quid!'"

Despite the shock of the expensive bucket, Gemma looked very relaxed as she lounged on her bed in a casual white vest top and gold chain and delivered the news.

That's not the only update fans received on Thursday, as Gemma also shared an adorable snap of the mother-daughter duo practicing the iconic Dirty Dancing lift on her Instagram Stories and added the well-known song (I've Had) The Time of my Life for dramatic effect.

Gemma is clearly appreciating the time off and on Wednesday morning she posted an apology to her fans.

On her Instagram Stories she wrote, "Sorry for the radio silence! I'm all good (thank you for asking). Away on our first family holiday in 2 years so been making the most of it," on a picture of a bright blue sky and some palm trees.
