In the clip, no-nonsense Gemma tells her co-star: "We all need to work in harmony, Sam.

"There might be a day when Jane runs out of toilet roll and needs a toilet roll from you, love."

A shocked fan shared the clip to their Instagram page, tagging Gemma in the post as they added: "Gemma Collins predicted the future" alongside a series of crying with laughter emojis.

Gemma added the post to her own social media story, where she has been sharing various fan-made clips, memes, and impersonations over the past few days.

The 39-year-old reality star shot to fame on The Only Way Is Essex back in 2011, going on to star in Celebrity Big Brother, I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, and her own reality series Diva Forever.

She previously confessed to stockpiling 28 rolls of toilet paper in a mad dash around Marks & Spencer at the start of the month.

Gemma shouted that she was "ready for coronavirus" as she admitted that she "crumbled" and panic-bought more than anticipated.

Recent weeks have seen Brits panic-buy toilet paper as they feared deadly COVID-19 spreading across the country.
