TOWIE’s Gemma Collins dated convicted killer Darren Floyd
Gemma Collins has revealed that she once dated a convicted killer, who was also her childhood sweetheart.
The TOWIE star, who recently appeared on ITV dating show Splash, spent two years in a relationship with Darren Floyd, who had consumed 8 pints of lager when he killed a man in a car accident.
The pair met as teenagers and while Gemma knew about his actions, a rep said she never condoned his crime.
Revelations about the romance are contained in Collins’ new autobiography ‘Basically: My Life as a Essex Girl’ and the busty blonde reveals that she first got close to Darren when she was 18. He served five years for his role in the road traffic accident and death of it’s victim and after his release from prison the pair started a two year romance.
Gemma also confirmed that she once fell pregnant to Floyd, but later lost their baby. She admitted that she didn’t want her ex as part of her life once she started starring on ITV2′s The Only Way Is Essex.
A spokeswoman for Gemma said their client was ‘aware of Darren’s past but had never excused his behaviour.’
Collins has finally found true love and she recently confirmed that she’s engaged to be married after her on/off boyfriend Rami Hawash popped the question on Christmas Day.
The couple have had a tumultuous past after first hooking up in 2011 but they’re now looking forward to the future and planning babies already.
The 32 year old said recently:
‘I’m not into long engagements and I’m getting older and would like a baby.’
