"You say it's girls who have a shoe addiction," she said as she unveiled his collection on an Instagram Story. "These are Gorka's shoes, well, those are some of Gorka's shoes. That's ridiculous." She went on to pan the camera to yet more pairs that had not yet been packed up and added, "He's got these ones as well." Gorka attempted to defend himself and explain why some had remained on the shelves as he joked, "These are the ones I'm wearing for the next few weeks." To which Gemma replied, "Look at you: 'Those are the ones I'm wearing, just pack the ones I'm not.' Ridiculous."

When Gemma shared that they had finally begun packing at the end of June, she took to Instagram to discuss the struggles they were facing amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Furniture wise, I think it's going to have to be a removal company. Every time we have moved, we've always used family cars, we've all got together: my sister, my brother-in-law, my mum. We all put our seats down in the car and do it ourselves, and it has been stressful but fun. But I think it's going to have to be a removal company because obviously I can't have all of my family around to help."
