They’ve had an on-off romance since their first date in 2011, but now it seems Gemma Collins has made a U-turn on her relationship with fiancé Rami Hawash.
When it was revealed the former TOWIE star and her businessman beau had called off their wedding earlier this year, there was the inevitable speculation that they had split.
However, Gemma said “everything is good” and the two had decided to live a “private life away from the cameras”. She explained, “Rami is a private man and I have to respect that.”
So when the 42-year-old posted a flurry of candid photos of her partner last week it not only showed they are very much still together, but undoubtedly surprised her fans, too. Especially, as she unfollowed Rami on social media earlier this year.
On her Instagram stories, Gemma posted a snap of the 49-year-old, with Etta James’ A Sunday Kind Of Love playing alongside, as the pair shared a Sunday roast. There was also a photo of her with stepson Tristan as they went pumpkin picking at Hatters Farm in Essex.
Sharing an image of her and Tristan holding hands, Gemma wrote, “Loving the rustic feels of Halloween. It’s not all about the cheesy dressing up. It’s about the beauty that Mother Nature is showing us this time of year.”
This is the first time in months she has featured her fiancé or his young son on social media.
Now a source has exclusively told us why Gemma has had a change of heart about making her relationship public again.
“She was finding it difficult not posting about how happy she is with Rami. Gemma is someone who loves love, and feels it’s only human nature to want to show off her partner to the world,” the source says.
"Her decision to live a more private life didn’t last long and she’s made a U-turn on it. Gemma just can’t help herself when it comes to declaring her love for Rami, and she wants to shout it from the rooftops.”
However, Gemma is reportedly conflicted about declaring her feelings publicly and respecting Rami’s wishes. “She is torn between respecting his private life and wanting to talk about her relationship,” our source claims.
“Gemma wants to protect what they have, given what she’s been through in the past with Arg [her ex, James Argent], but she knows a private life is never really private when you’re in the public eye. She just can’t help herself though, as she adores Rami.”
It’s no secret that Rami chooses life out of the public eye – it was only recently he made his own Instagram account public – but, according to our source, he knows what he signed up for when dating the GC.
“Rami would much rather be out of the limelight because he doesn’t like the drama that often comes with it. But he accepts why Gemma wants to post about their relationship,” they say.
“He’d rather she didn’t, but he understands that things like this are just in her character and he does admire that. He might not agree with it, but he would never change her.”
Gemma has opened up to new exclusively in the past about the dynamics of the relationship and said, “I love that Rami gives me the space to be who I am. I’m a very creative person. I’m very eccentric. I’ve got my little ways. And, you know, he really understands that.”
It looks as if Rami could be yielding on their agreement, as Gemma’s show of affection didn’t stop there. The former Celebrity Big Brother contender included a snap of the two of them holding hands while having a cosy night in on the sofa watching Netflix. Blue, her whippet, was with them.
And before heading off on a lunch date, she told followers, “I am just going to meet Rami for lunch and I thought why not? Dress up! He needs to remember who he is going out with.”
The couple first dated in 2011, and Rami made several appearances on The Only Way Is Essex, before announcing their engagement on 27 December of the same year. It was broken off only weeks later.
The pair got engaged for a second time in 2021 after reuniting during lockdown. They were due to tie the knot this summer, but in July Gemma said they’d decided to cancel their plans and would be concentrating on other things.
“There is no rush and I am living life. There is still so much I want to do,” Gemma said. "Me and Rami are both free spirits, he has been married before and funnily enough we were looking at pictures of us and we have known each other for so long. We have agreed that if we are both still together at 50 then we will do it.”
