You can take the girl out of Essex.

TOWIE star Gemma Collins (36) and a handful of castmates hit Dublin on Wednesday night and made the most of their time on our shores. Gemma was joined by Liam Gatsby, Amber Dowding and Chloe Sims, among others, as they are spending the week filming the hit ITV2 reality show in the capital.

Collins and co partied the night away at Lillie's Bordello before ending their night the only appropriate way: with an early morning McDonald's.Earlier in the day was a significantly more glam affair as they were laden down with shopping bags from Brown Thomas and Jimmy Choo, with Gemma pictured walking arm in arm with celebrity makeup artist Aidan Corcoran, who is also a personal shopper with Brown Thomas' beauty hall. Although her visit was overshadowed by that of Victoria Beckham, whose arrival temporarily took over the second floor of the luxury department store.

The TOWIE crew have been busy during their short time here, enjoying an "Irish pub extravaganza" starting in Temple Bar and they're also looking for extras if fans want to appear in the background. Earlier in the week, Gemma posted a selfie of herself on the flight to Dublin sitting next to ex James Argent with the caption, "Trust me to have to sit next to ARG. Dublin here we come I can feel the magic."

The seating arrangement was all the more dramatic as she recently revealed she was trying to have a baby with him last year - without his knowledge.

"It wasn’t the right thing to do, but I really wanted a baby," she told the Loose Women panel. "What I did was a bit much, but it was because I knew him.

"It sounds a bit crazy but I’m out of that now. You don’t have to trap a man. He didn’t know at the time! But he does now. I apologised afterwards. We met in Marbella and I said, 'Arg, can we talk over paella for two?'"

Trust me to have to sit next to ARG Dublin here we come I can feel the 💫💫💫💫 magic 💫💫💫
