Gemma Collins looked cheerful as she left a Manchester hotel ahead of the first night of her self-titled stage show.

The 41-year-old TOWIE star is touring the UK for seven nights with her show The GC’s Big Night Out, which opens tonight at the Opera House in Manchester.

The TV personality was spotted leaving a hotel in town wearing a cream collared coat and giant sunglasses, her hair thrown into a bun.

Gemma has promised fans the tour she will be criss-crossing the country for will be “absolutely fabulous and the best night out”.

Last summer it was reported that the GC will rake in £250,000 from the tour – with a VIP meet and greet package which sold for £113.
