Gemma Collins 'Will Get Paid' Despite Crumble In The Jungle
Towie star reported to have stuck it out past qualifying period to collect cheque...
She might only have lasted three days on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, but it seems Gemma Collins will still be getting paid.
The Mirror claims that the Towie cast member is set to pocket her full fee for the show because it has a 72-hour rule - with three days being the minimum amount of time a contestant has to stay in order to collect their money.
The 33-year-old celeb had been complaining about the lack of food when locked up in the "jungle slammer" and had thrown several tantrums during her short time on the show.
And her flounce has led to her name trending on Twitter, with most users being less than sympathetic about her lack of staying power.
Former Big Brother housemate Luke Marsden wrote: "So Gemma Collins has walked from #ImACeIeb jeez even Gillian McKeith stuck it out! I hope she'll cope in the 5 star hotel ok for 2 weeks"

User @MTCHYNG joked: "Breaking news: Gemma Collins has left I'm a Celebrity after realising that she isn't a celebrity"
Getting philosophical, @Scoulter1982 commented: "Gemma Collins is exactly what is wrong with society - no talent, constant whining, quitting when it's tough, sense of entitlement etc etc"
And TV critic Kevin O'Sullivan tweeted: "Only one thing for it now. ITV must send Gemma Collins all the way home. By helicopter..."
Impressionist Francine Lewis posted a quick impersonation of Collins on Vine, scoffing food while expressing her relief at being out of the jungle.

We're not going to delve into some of the more personal and weight-based abuse aimed at the Essex girl, but there was some sympathy too.
