Gemma explained: “I am sure people will want insight into it. But it was very touching and went with my dad and just took back and thought of me and my family.
“If I say I’m more stable, I’ll be back with full strength for grams.”
She continued, “The truth of this problem is that it wasn’t a good time for people lately, and there is an epidemic.”
GC added to her reality show: “My life isn’t all that flashy and I’m just doing ordinary things.
“I am looking forward to it when I start shooting again. But this time, many people took a break for Christmas and it was fun, but my father was really unwell.
“You can see how tired I am. I literally couldn’t sleep… Although he slept, he was in the hospital and was always so worried, and now he is following his sleep.
“I just woke up and I said,’Oh, he’s discharged now, I don’t need to worry,’ but I have no choice but to worry.
“It’s really only now that he comes home and I put everything back together.”
Gemma, who recently moved to a new home, is expected to turn 40 this weekend and is happy to have a good time with her dad.
“I couldn’t ask any more.
“I turn 40 on Sunday. There is a bag under your eyes, but your father is alive. I can have a piece of cake with him.”
It came after The GC revealed his father’s health issues on a BBC podcast.
She told the audience: “It literally tears you apart.
“My home is not the same without my father. It was a really scary time because I didn’t know what would happen to my father. And if he tries to make it…
“There were times when we all had to talk about you, and we knew what to do if Dad didn’t stay there.”
