We've all been there – you've planned to put your feet up and enjoy a favourite treat when you get home from work, but someone else has got there first.

She then turned to the camera and said: "He's eaten my cake." Gorka could be heard protesting, "She had half of it..." and Gemma interrupted him to wail, "I just wanted a slab of cake before bed!"

In a new video on Wednesday afternoon, Gemma provided another update on the situation to her followers, saying: "Our house move has been put back again, I feel like I'm going crazy." We bet some cake would really help…
