The Sun reports that the TOWIE star jetted to Tenerife to film promos for the brand in a bid to encourage Brits to travel abroad this summer. 

A source told the publication: ‘Gemma loves going abroad so when Wizz Air approached her team it was a no-brainer. Plus the planes are pink — her favourite colour.

‘After signing on the dotted line, Gemma flew out to Tenerife with Wizz Air to shoot content for them.’

They continued: ‘She’ll be announced as the face of the company in the coming weeks and will be plastered across billboards and online adverts — as well as being on the box.’ 

The insider added that the bubbly blonde is a ‘hugely recognisable face’ and is the ‘the ideal person’ to front their brand new campaign. 

They went on to suggest that Gemma is always up for a laugh and may even record some hilarious cabin crew announcements with ‘plenty of jokes’. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives of Gemma for comment. 

And while her career may be flying high, the same couldn’t be said for her love life after having recently endured a painful split from James Argent. 

On Tuesday she announced her split by posting break up texts on her Instagram account in which James called her a ‘hippo’ and a ‘fat f**k.’ 

Gemma has since apologised for releasing explosive text messages he had sent her, while friends have urged James, 32, to ‘sort his life out’.

In a screenshot obtained by MailOnline, the Diva On Lockdown star contacted her fellow reality star in the early hours of the morning.

She wrote: ‘I am sorry about putting the messages up, I was just so hurt you suggested an open relationship, it didn’t look like a joke when you typed it.

‘I was so upset but I shouldn’t have put the messages up, that was anger on my part which was wrong. I am so sorry about that x.’ (sic)

The GC had originally posted the fierce row that led to her breaking up with her on-off beau on social media.   

In the texts, the musician called his partner a ‘hippo’ and a ‘fat f**k’, after she suggested that he had bought another woman dinner and not her. 

The series of texts began with Gemma saying: ‘What man pays for another woman!!!’, while Arg responded by saying: ‘Insensitive.’ 

Clearly riled, the blonde said: ‘And the woman that saved your life has to pay for herself!!!’

Her next message was masked, but her now-ex responded: ‘You are supposed to be treating me you hippo.’ 

Moments later, Gemma uploaded another series of messages, where he sent her a plane emoji in reply to a picture of flight details. 

‘I’ll take a mate, I’m not booking it. You said you would be a gentleman!’, she penned, before he shockingly said: ‘YOU FAT F**K. IVE JUST LOST ANOTHER 2000’ (sic). He didn’t refer to what he had lost 2000 of. 

Meanwhile, according to The Sun, a source close to Arg allegedly claimed he needs to ‘grow up’ after seeing his dispute with Gemma.

They told the publication: ‘The way James is treating Gemma right now is totally out of order.

‘Gemma stuck by James for months when he was in rehab. And when he got home she was the first one there welcoming him with open arms.

‘Gemma put her life on hold and now James has repaid her by behaving like this. He needs to grow up and realise he has a good thing with Gemma.’

The insider also said their highly-publicised argument could affect his comeback on TOWIE for the upcoming 10th anniversary show this autumn.
