Gemma Collins has "given up on love".
The 36-year-old reality TV star has admitted love is "not on [her] agenda" at the moment because she only ever end up disappointed when the romance comes to an end, although the busty blonde insists she has not become a "hater of love".
Speaking to the Metro Online, the 'The Only Way Is Essex' star said: "Love's not on my agenda right now to be honest, I'm kind of over it, it always ends up in disappointment with me.
"I've given up on love. I'm not a hater of love but having a man right now is not on my agenda."
Gemma is set to return to the small screen on Sunday (10.09.17) when the new series of the popular ITVBe show airs, and she has revealed her busy schedule makes it hard for her to date someone, and having to balance her career with her love life is a "hassle" she doesn't need.
She explained: "And I have got so much work on that actually I haven't got time for one, not one that's going to mess me about either. I just don't need the hassle in my life."
Gemma has previously dated fellow co-star James 'Arg' Argent, who will also return to the programme this weekend, but she has vowed not to enjoy a steamy sex session with her former flame again because she has "been there, done that, got the T-shirt".
She said: "People say would you sleep with him again - but no, we've kind of been there, done that, got the T-shirt etc.
"I know he got the a***hole because I came out and spoke about it and he really wanted to get back with Lydia, but you know it takes two to tango.
"So he'll be back, we love Arg."
However, the television personality thinks Arg's mother has the "hump" with her and she fears in the forthcoming episodes she will have to make amends with the 29-year-old's parent.
She said: "Although he said his mum's got the hump with me, so I might have to do a scene where I go and see his mother."
Gemma has also been linked to a mystery man named JD, and although she would be "very comfortable" taking their romance to the next step, she is worried the age gap may prove problematic.
She said: "I really like him as a person and I like the family, and I would feel very comfortable in that situation and I think as you get older you look at the whole picture.
"But here's the thing, he's 30, I'm 36, he probably still wants to go out and have fun.
"So we're good friends we spend time together but I don't know if anything's going to happen there and I'm not going to chase it either. I don't want to lose a good friend."
