Gemma Collins admits she's got a panic room in her new house – and it's pink

Gemma Collins revealed she has a panic room in her house, and in true GC style, it’s pink.

The Diva Forever star was thinking about the arrival of spring and what she wants to focus on when she briefly got onto the topic.

However, she said there’s no longer much to do at her home after installing the bright room.

“Obviously I’ve got the panic rooms, it’s all pink, it’s all fabulous,” she said on The Gemma Collins Podcast.

“It’s kind of like a shrine to me this house, I don’t know if that’s normal or not, but everywhere you go you just know it’s my house.”

The GC purchased the Essex mansion this year for £1.3 million.

She recently likened the security measures in her new home to a fortress as she revealed she has a ring-of-steel surrounding the property.

Gemma said: “I moved into my new house. Basically I feel like Whitney Houston.

“Literally I’ve been getting so much done, I’ve got security out and in. The work that goes into it. It’s been like a scene from The Bodyguard.

“I’ve got panic rooms. You name it, I’ve got it in the house. Just call me Whitney, baby.”

The Bodyguard followed Whitney’s character (Rachel Marron) – a superstar who is protected by a secret service agent played by Kevin Costner.

A panic room is usually installed to provide a shelter or hiding place for the home’s occupants in the event of a break-in, home invasion or emergency.

Gemma said she was planning a two-year renovation project to turn the manor into a sparkly pink palace with its own helipad and gem-encrusted bathtub.

She even has a glittery life-sized horse in her garden until she can ‘get the real thing’.

The home – which was converted from a barn – has five bedrooms , four ensuite bathrooms and an acre of land.
