Love interest: Gemma Collins, pictured in London last Thursday, has been open about her crush on Mick Norcross

She made no secret of her crush on Sugar Hut club owner Mick Norcross in the second series of The Only Way Is Essex.

But despite admitting her 'love' for him had calmed down somewhat in Sunday's episode of the new series, car saleswoman Collins isn't impressed to see him with her younger co-star Maria Fowler.

Despite linking them together at her singles night, Collins admitted glamour model Fowler's 'obvious crush' on the divorcee 'makes me want to throw up'.

Collins, 30, writes in her Closer magazine column: 'Maria Fowler has an obvious crush on Mick Norcross and it makes me want to throw up.

'She’s too much of a diva for Mick, but it’s obvious there is chemistry between them.

'I still fancy Mick, but not as much as before so, if she wants to jump on him, I’ll step aside graciously.'

After Mick, 48, was seen asking Fowler, 25, for a date on Sunday's episode, the pair were spotted at his Sugar Hut nightclub in Brentwood, Essex holding hands.

As they left the venue, they were openly kissing for the paparazzi, suggesting they have already started dating.

Collins isn't the only one unhappy with the burgeoning romance - Norcross's son Kirk is openly disdainful of Fowler.

Meanwhile, Collins admitted she was shocked by co-stars Lauren Goodger and Mark Wright's war of words on Twitter.

After Goodger spoke out on her secret abortion four years ago, Wright hit out at her on his micro-blogging page.

Collins said: 'Things were bad enough before Lauren gave an interview last week about having aborted her ex Mark Wright’s baby – and, wow, it all kicked off with them blasting one another on Twitter.

'I bumped into Mark the day it all came out and he seemed genuinely upset and was really stressed.

'Lauren dredged up the incident because she’s always been put down by Mark – she probably wants to show him she can fight back.'
