December is just weeks away, and aside from listening to Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas on repeat, there is another diva way to countdown to the festivities.

What’s that you may wonder? Well the diva extrodinaire Gemma Collins has launched her own advent calendar… and it looks incredible.

Gemma, 39, announced the product to her two million followers on Instagram, writing: “The best advent calendar of the YEAR LUXURY made at the magical GC CANDY FACTORY ORDER NOW!!!”

The hot pink creation has a picture of Gemma looking stunning on its cover, wearing a sparkly evening gown and a pink santa hat. It is also bordered in what looks like pictures of diamonds, and has hanging baubles printed on the front of it.

The Christmas countdown is called I’m Claustrophobic Santa!, which is one of the TOWIE star’s famous catchphrases, and behind every door is a pink chocolate.

On her website, where you can buy the festive offering, it is described as: “the most Divalicious Advent Calendar on the market”.

The blurb continues: “Dreaming of a Pink Christmas? Then get your hands on the Luxury Limited-Edition Gemma Collins Pink Chocolate Advent Calendar.”

  • TOWIE star Gemma Collins looks slimmer than ever as she shows off her 3 stone weight loss

  • James Argent's company has 'zero cash in the bank' after losing £24,000 due to coronavirus

“The Only Way to Countdown to Christmas in True Diva Style. Each day you’ll get a delicious Pink Chocolate behind each window!”

However, despite the fact that it sounds fabulous many were torn by the £20 price tag, with one fan commenting: “No way I’d pay £20”

And another adding: “Although if it makes people happy, who am I to judge? I just think about the other things you could spend £20 on first.”

Aside from selling advent calendars to hopefully put a smile on fans' faces, The GC has also been dishing out advice as we enter into lockdown.

"Make today count !!! Keep good spirits up !!! #gcstyle sending so much LOVE and POSITIVITY to you all".
