‘It was a misjudged joke’: Emmerdale’s Samantha Giles apologises to Gemma Collins for saying she’d ‘punch her’ and calling her ‘talentless and revolting’

Samantha Giles has apologised to Gemma Collins for saying she would ‘punch her’ in a bizarre war of words. 

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, the Emmerdale actress, 50, said she ‘honestly didn’t mean’ what she said and branded it a ‘misjudged joke’.

Earlier this week Samantha branded the former TOWIE star, 41, ‘revolting’ and ‘talentless’ in an interview, adding: ‘I think I’d punch her if I ever came across her’.

Samantha has now penned in her apology Tweet: ‘Hi everyone I’m aware that comments I made on a press red carpet have been taken out of the context I meant them, so I’d like to apologise to @missgemcollins for my misjudged jokes which I honestly didn’t mean. 

‘I hope this apology is acceptable. Hands held up from me x.’

Previously Samantha told the Daily Star: ‘All these reality stars, I haven’t got a clue who they are!’ That Gemma Collins, I think I’d punch her if I ever came across her.

‘I don’t know – how can someone so talentless and revolting have made so much money?

‘I wouldn’t mind if she’d give it away and did something good with it, but all she seems to do is put more s*** on her face and do her nails.’

After the harsh words Gemma was quick to hit back and reposted the interview on her Instagram story, adding: ‘#BeKind.

‘I don’t find someone wanting to punch me a joke.’

Then, in an apparent dig at Samantha who has never starred in Coronation Street, Gemma said: ‘Really upsetting. To think I loved her in Corrie.’

She finished: ‘Nothing wrong with reality stars. We were all given an opportunity and we made the best out of it.’

Meanwhile, Gemma recently revealed that she and her fiancé Rami Hawash don’t know if he will ‘ever regain sight in his eye’ after a ‘serious work accident’.

The update comes after the reality star shared news of the accident back in April, explaining that her husband-to-be needed an operation.

But despite the uncertainty surrounding the injury, she has assured Rami that she will love him no matter the outcome in an emotional post.

Since the incident, which she dubbed as ‘upsetting’, ‘scary’ and ‘worrying’ at the time – Gemma has been looking after Rami as he recovers. 

And talking to Metro recently, the former TOWIE star explained: ‘He’s really shaken up – he’s been in excruciating pain as he had his operation last week.

‘We hope that he’s going to get the sight back in his eye, but I did reassure him that if he went blind or if he was going to lose his eye, that I’m still going to be with him because you don’t think about all those things.’








Gemma added that the operation has resulted in his eye ‘drooping down’, meaning it has changed aesthetically.

Standing by her man, she continued: ‘But I said don’t worry, I love him with an eye, without an eye, whether or not he gets his sight back. So there’s been a lot going on emotionally as well, but we make sure to support one another.’

Sharing the news of Rami’s eye last month, she took to Instagram to share a painful looking snap of the inflamed injury.

Gemma wrote over the snap: ”It’s been one hell of a week, good to have Rami home today. It’s been a very upsetting time for us. Scary, worrying, no sleep, please god he will be ok [sic]. thank you Queens Hospital @NHSEngland.’
