Celebs Go Dating contestant had a ‘gut instinct’ something wasn’t right between her and Gary Lucy


Celebs Go Dating contestant Gemma Louisianna has revealed she had a ‘gut instinct’ something wasn’t right between her and Gary Lucy, just days before he dumped her for Laura Anderson.

The comedian, 30, admitted she wasn’t sure who the former Hollyoaks star, 41, was after being set up by producers on a blind date and went on to ask her friends.

But despite this, the pair hit it off and went on five dates before the actor broke things off in September after falling for fellow celebrity and former Love Islander, Laura, 33.

Upset: Celebs Go Dating contestant Gemma Louisianna has revealed she had a ‘gut instinct’ something wasn’t right between her and Gary Lucy, just days before he dumped her for Laura Anderson

Gemma, who filmed for the Chanel 4 show over the summer, admitted she thinks they might have ‘had a chance’ if Laura had not been on the scene.

She said: ‘I think we might have made more of a go of it if Laura hadn’t been around, we did get on really well.

‘We just and I had an instant connection which felt quite natural. But after the fourth date my instincts were telling me something was going on.

‘And not to my surprise he dumped me on the fifth date. No hard feelings though, now I’ve got some great material for my comedy sets.

‘He reached out to me after the show and was very decent about it.’

Gemma’s time on the show began after she was approached by producers online in July 2022.

After a rigorous process involving a welfare check on Gemma, she was brought onto the show and despite the intense production process, said she ‘genuinely enjoyed’ the dates.

She said: ‘I got a message on Instagram from the show and managed to make it work between doing some shows in Edinburgh.

‘On the first day, it was a blind date so I didn’t know who I was meeting. I won’t lie, it was a bit intimidating at first. I was nervous but excited to get stuck in.

‘For the most part, the dates felt very real. The hardest part was not being able to text or contact the other person outside of the dates. It made it a bit more exciting, though.’

Gary, who separated from the mother of his four children in November 2018, found fame as a young man on Hollyoaks before going on to star in ITV drama, Footballers Wives.

In total, the pair went on five dates, including three one-on-one dates, a group date, and a final date.

She said that she had a feeling that things weren’t ‘quite right’ between her and Gary on the fourth time they met – but ‘didn’t want to believe it’.

Gemma said: ‘I never spoke to Laura so I didn’t know for sure, but I had a feeling. I didn’t get to speak to Laura much, but she seemed pretty nice.

‘The final date was when I really knew something was wrong, but he didn’t reveal anything.’

In the end, Gary decided that he wasn’t feeling it anymore and ended things with Gemma face to face during a date at a bar in central London.

She said that while it was never nice to hear, she had ‘prepared herself’ for the possibility.

‘Every girl knows that gut instinct and mine was right,’ she said. ‘I had prepared myself for it. I just wanted to know what was happening and why.

‘I thought it was going quite well, but you’ve gotta trust your gut instinct sometimes. I was still hopeful after our first kiss on the second date, and it was good!’

The aspiring singer also revealed information about the filming process and even refused to ask Gary certain questions despite producers demands.

Gemma said: ‘I mean, just like all TV we’re told to speak about certain things like they asked me to ask Gary to cry on command, but I refused.

‘We had to redo specific conversations, but only for clarity and audio problems.

‘The filming is fairly fast on the date, but its odd because we couldn’t talk if the camera wasn’t rolling. In the end, it was the perfect ending for a comedian like me.

‘It was actually the same day that the queen died, I was able to make a joke about it in the taxi on the way home, it gave the driver and me something to talk about.

‘Despite the way it ended I have no hard feelings towards Gary. He even respected my comedy and said that we had a genuine good connection.

‘If it wasn’t for Laura who knows what might have happened between us. But technically, we’re not allowed to have any contact now so that’s that.

‘I’m grateful for the experience and the journey of it all. It’s been harder than I thought it would be, especially watching the episodes and knowing that some of the conversations have been cut differently or superimposed,’ she admitted.

‘But I’m glad I did it and I’m happy to be sharing my journey, both the good and the bad, with everyone.’

Gary and Laura reportedly split after a one-year whirlwind romance and are ‘unlikely to get back together’ according to sources, after deciding they ‘want different things’ in life. 

Laura sparked speculation she was newly-single last week as she revealed  she’s going through ‘a very difficult time’, with eagle-eyed fans also noticing she was no longer following Gary on Instagram. 

This comes after a source told The Sun: ‘They are calling it a break but it looks unlikely they will get back together. They want different things at the end of the day’.

Sharing a selfie with her dog Buddy to her Stories, Laura penned: ‘I know I’ve been quiet on here and not myself this week or so.

‘I’m going through a very difficult time, I actually don’t think I’ve ever felt so stressed in my life.

‘As we know Instagram isn’t real life but over sharing negativity has never been something I like doing. Anyway my thought of the day for us all is – Never lose yourself or your voice.’ 

And before the post, she re-shared another which wrote about ‘the quality of attention’ rather than the speed of a person’s replies. 

Laura has also wiped all traces of the Hollyoaks actor, from her social media, and even appears to have unfollowed him on Instagram.

While the actor also continues to follow Laura on Instagram, who no longer follows him. 

A representative for Gary told MailOnline that the speculation that he has split with Laura is not true. Laura’s representatives did not comment.
