Gemma Collins installs panic room in her new £1.3m home saying she ‘feels like Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard'

GEMMA Collins has revealed she has installed a panic room in her new high-security house.

The 40-year-old Towie favourite has had a ring-of-steel thrown around her luxury pad saying: "You name it, I've got it."

The star snapped up the glass-fronted, open plan home for £1.3million after boosting her earnings in lockdown thanks to a lucrative clothing deal and reality TV series.

Gemma, who has her own range of "are you OK hun?" branded products, outlined the new measures to listeners of her BBC podcast.

She said: "I moved into my new house. Basically I feel like Whitney Houston.

"Literally I’ve been getting so much done, I’ve got security out and in. The work that goes into it. It’s been like a scene from The Bodyguard.

"I’ve got panic rooms. You name it, I’ve got it in the house. Just call me Whitney, baby."

Hit 1992 film The Bodyguard starred Whitney as Rachel Marron, a superstar whose life gets given a security overhaul by a secret service agent played by Kevin Costner.

Given Gemma's famous cry in Celebrity Big Brother – "I'm claustrophobic, Darren" – and her fear of lifts there is likely to be a bit of space in her panic room.

The star's amazing house boasts high ceilings supported by wooden beams, a spectacular spiral light feature, and dozens of windows.

The self-confessed diva also has a vast blue and cream kitchen, as well as a kitchen island, with cabinets stacked high and spanning three walls.

She has also put her own stamp on the property, installing a life sized glittery horse in the garden.

Gemma told her Instagram followers: ""Until I get the real thing, this has to do. It's soooo beautiful in my house."
