Gemma Collins Offers Theresa May Her Help With Brexit
In the political news you were probably not expecting this morning, The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins has offered up her help to Theresa May, saying you need 'gumption' to run the country and 'move forward' with Brexit.
The celebrity made the unlikely offer on Good Morning Britain this morning (Monday 1 April), where hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid asked her about her opinion on the nation's ongoing Brexit dramas.
Collins revealed she 'voted out' in the EU referendum, and also said she'd vote leave again if there was a second referendum.
"But I think Theresa needs to lead our nation," she continued.
"Take a deep breath Theresa, make a deal and let's move forward. If you're a leader in this country, take the lead and own it and people will follow."
She then offered up her help, adding: "If you need some help, hun, I'm free for an hour after the show."
Now this is the part where you'd expect Piers Morgan to pipe up and shoot Collins right down. But in yet another inexplicable twist, he seemed all for the idea.
He told her: "I would actually think that you could do a better job right now than Theresa May."
As you'll no doubt know, Theresa May has been having a right old 'mare trying to get her Brexit deal signed off, even telling Parliament she'll stand down as Prime Minister if they'd just agree to the damn thing. They didn't.

Collins advised her: "You've got to have some gumption if you're leading the country.
"For me now, it's boring, next. Come on, Theresa, let's do this.
"Once a decision's been made, I think the whole country will feel confident. I recently went to a shopping centre, no one was in it.
"Not that that's got nothing to do with it but I think people aren't spending at the minute. Everybody's worried."
She added: "The only good thing is I think house prices are going to drop so if you want to buy some properties now's your time."
Collins, Morgan and Reid also took the opportunity to have a chat about police cuts, with the removal of 20,000 officers from the streets.
Collins said she didn't feel there are enough police on the streets, but recently had an incident where the police came and dealt with things effectively.
"We did have a chat about not having enough police officers on our streets and they was really honest," she said.
"They looked under pressure as well and there is not enough of us at the moment and they are struggling to get everywhere.
"They were like, 'we are really under pressure and understaffed'."
Collins then flipped the attention back onto Theresa May, asking what she's doing about the situation.
She told her: "Theresa if you're watching this, good morning darling we need to get the police back on the streets helping everybody out."
I mean, I guess it is April Fool's Day...
