Gemma Collins given £1,000 Chanel sandals by bodyguard on luxury shopping spree

TOWIE star Gemma Collins jumped on Instagram to gush about her bodyguard after he made an expensive £1,000 purchase for her.

Posting on her Instagram story a photo of expensive Chanel sandals valued at just over £1,000, Gemma could be seen in the corner of the screen excited as she captioned the image explaining what was happening.

She wrote: “When your bodyguard gets you your Chanels, I love you @uncle_sid1202.”

The next photo had a member of the Chanel store staff holding the shoe up in front of her while Sid’s face appeared at the edge of the screen.

The photos were taken seemingly on a video call while Sid spoke to Gemma as he made the purchase.

Gemma again captioned the image saying “I love you” to bodyguard Sid while also tagging Chanel in the post.

Sid is often mentioned on Gemma’s Instagram account as the pair have a close bond, as Sid owns Deadline Security and has been with Gemma for a while.

He reposted the photos to his own account, captioning: “Just picked up a couple of pairs of Chanel shoes for @gemmacollins.”

Gemma has had protection ever since 2019 when a stalker caused her to have to call the police.

Since then the star has always had protection, with a requirement of eight bodyguards needed to protect her from fans while at a club appearance.

While speaking at the Jog On To Cancer charity event with Bobby Norris she said: "I have a bodyguard with me as I get mobbed so often I need someone to keep an eye on me.

"I get mobbed with frantic crowds crushing me, so I need security. The crowds have got bigger and bigger.

"The last time I turned up at a nightclub there was a crowd crush and I needed Sid and seven bouncers to form a protective circle around me."

Besides frantic club mobs, Gemma and Sid were left stranded together in February after their car tyre was slashed.

While waiting for AA to arrive outside Harrods, they posted to Instagram what had happened, with Sid explaining the story to their followers.

He said: “Basically I dropped Gemma and the kids off at a restaurant, we come out of Harrods, gone into restaurant, had a lovely meal.

“I brought the car round and then the tyre has been slashed, not good.”
