Gemma Collins has treated herself to a brand new Land Rover Defender – with a price tag of £45,000.

The 40-year-old revealed the new car on her socials and boasted about how hard it was to get hold of.

It’s certainly a long way from the beginning of her career, where the GC worked as a car dealer before landing a role on The Only Way Is Essex.

Posting photos of the new vehicle, Gemma told fans: “This car is gold dust… but so am I! @theessexcargroup thank you so much for sourcing my new car, the service is unbelievable”.

Gemma managed to get her hands on the car thanks to an old friend, Kenny.

“I’ve known Kenny since I was young he was about 4!!! Fact about Kenny: he loves Frosties. I’m so proud of him @theessexcargroup. Guys if you're looking for a car then this is the place to come,” Gemma said.

In a video clip, Kenny tells Gemma she deserves the car and she replies: “That is another thing. I have to be honest guys, hard work, but you know what it’s all worth it.”

It’s not the reality star’s first big car purchase this year – a few months ago she spent £90k on a Porsche for her brother Russell. The car was a gift to her sibling, for letting her stay with him as she waited for work on her new home to be done.

Gemma has made millions since joining TOWIE from TV shows, endorsements and a clothing line. She splurged £1.35 million on a luxurious “dream” home in Essex earlier this year.

The mansion has a giant sequinned swimming pool with Gemma’s initials spelled out on the side, as well as a life-sized horse statue in the garden. The house also boats a giant garden and spacious driveway, so there’s plenty of room to park her new car.

Gemma is currently dating boyfriend Rami Hawash, who she got back together with in April this year.

The couple were previously engaged in 2013 and she recently revealed their plans to try for a baby next year.

She told The Sun: "I’m going to have a baby next year.

"Rami and I are going to try — we’re really excited about that."

She added: "It’s not so easy for me to get pregnant because of PCOS, so we’re going to make a show about that called Gemma Collins: Making the Baby.

"My agent is in negotiations. I’m ready for a baby now and I can’t wait to be a mum."
