The 'Only Way is Essex' star was so desperate to have a baby of her own that she decided to look into fertility preservation because she hadn't found a man to start a family with and was worried time wasn't on her side, but she has admitted she had to scrap that idea because there were a few problems when she went to see a doctor.

Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Thursday (07.09.17), she said: "I'm officially single and last year I was in a place where I really wanted a baby and actually for the first time in my life I don't crave a man. I desperately would like to have a baby. I couldn't have my eggs frozen because there were a few complications but when the time is right, I'll have all the help. There's lots of help out there so I will definitely be able to have a baby."

And, although she's adamant she's not looking for a boyfriend at the moment, the 36-year-old blonde babe is hoping to bag someone in the future that's "normal."

Asked what she wants in a man, she said: "I just want someone normal. I want someone that goes to work, from a normal family and I think when they meet us, because they see us on the TV, they're like: 'Oh I wonder what she's like?' And then because I'm probably normal - not as hype up on real life - so I just really struggle to find someone but honestly, love is not on my cards right now."

But Gemma admitted yesterday (06.09.17) that she has a date lined up with an older man next week after she squashed rumours that she's dating a bearded guy she posted a picture of her kissing late last month on social media.

She said: "Guys .... I am very much a single Pringle ! I have a date next week with a nice older guy .... this person is NOT the one no more airtime x (sic)"
