Gemma Collins shows off friendship with Love Islands Nathalia Campos as she poses in swimsuit

It’s warm this weekend so what better way to enjoy the warm weather than with a celebrity pal in their luscious garden.

And it seems thatLove Island’s Nathalia Campos got the memo as she spent the day sunning it up withGemma Collins.

Gemma, 41, gushed over her reality TV pal, telling Instagram followers: “This girl is a supermodel. I'm still working on me being a supermodel but I'm not doing bad.”

Alongside the snap Gemma and Nathalia, 23, showed off their style as the TOWIE star posed in a leopard print swimsuit. While Nathalia looked chic in a black crop top and denim shorts.

The star's mother Joan was also present and could be seen saying: “Fresh out the Love Island house she is at the GC mansion getting showbiz advice from mother”.

Gemma asked her mum: “What are the key things you're telling her, mum?”

Joan replied: “To be very confident, to walk with her head high and her shoulders back.”

Gemma added: “And just be true to yourself honey – and take them big pay cheques.”

The GC was in high spirits for the gathering, but recently shetold OK! that she landed herself in hospital.

The reality star has had a rough time as of late with her PCOS and battle with an under active thyroid. And last week, things took a turn for the worse as she came down with a mystery illness that left her feeling "really unwell".

While she's maintained a positive attitude and ploughed on with her busy schedule of work filming More Than Daffs and Taffs in Wales, the reality star told OK! that her fiancé Rami Hawash was nearly forced to rush her to hospital after she collapsed on Saturday 6 August.

During a chat about Aussie's new deep moisture campaign, Gemma explained: "I have been so ill I cannot tell you. My workload has been a lot, but I've had a virus. I've been really, really, really unwell. I literally had to film up in Wales and I was very unwell.

"I had to call the doctor out and the doctor said to me, 'Look I'm going to give you medicine but I actually think this is a virus and it's not going to work.'"

The former Celebrity Big Brother star first began feeling ill at the start of August, but did her best to push it to one side in order to get through her work commitments.

But "this time my body was having none of it" Gemma explained, adding: "Basically I've been on drips. Rami nearly had to take me to the hospital on Saturday night because I was collapsing on the floor.

"Literally, it was really really bad whatever I've had, it's been awful."

While the last week has been an experience she "wouldn't wish on my worst enemy", Gemma has managed to get some of her mojo back as she told OK! she's getting stronger with each passing day.
