Gemma Collins drops her first Christmas single teaser as she duets with Darren Day

GEMMA Collins has dropped a teaser for her Christmas single with fellow former Celebrity Big Brother housemate Darren Day.

The Towie star announced the festive duet on Instagram where she shared a snippet from the recording booth.

The duo have covered the Christmas classic, "Baby, It's Cold Outside."

In the snippet, Gemma is stood in front of a microphone donned in aChristmas jumper as she introduces the song.

"To the nation, it is the GC and Dazzle," she yells.

"He’s not claustrophobic anymore, he’s singing a song to cheer everyone up from what a terrible year this has been.

"Take it away, Dazzle!"

Gemma captioned the video with: "TO THE NATION. What a year it’s been #nowords

"PLEASE pre order!!! My feel good tune with Dazzle to CHEER the NATION UP!!!"

The 39-year-old shared the front cover of the single which sees the pair smiling in a winter wonderland scene.

Posting the image earlier today Gemma wrote: "I am SO EXCITED to let you know that my Christmas song is now on PRE – ORDER!"

The GC added: "I wanted to do something fun and fabulous for you all for charity as it’s been a tough year for all, I hope this spreads some cheer and warmth in your hearts. Head over to my story to pre order!!!!!"

West End star Darren appeared on Celebrity Big Brother with Gemma in 2016.

The pair became a hit when in the now infamous scene an upset Gemma screamed "I'm claustrophobic Darren" at the 52-year-old singer.

The duo have since made up and are looking forward to spreading the holiday cheer with their festive single.

The single is available to pre-order on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

Gemma's charity single comes as she vows to follow in Princess Diana's footsteps and retire her GC alter ego to focus on humanitarian work.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the 39-year-old star teased that fans will see a new side of her in 2021 as she takes inspiration from the tragic royal.

She was particularly moved by Diana's famous walk through an area being cleared of landmines in Huambo, Angola, a few months before her death in 1997 – and hopes to do similar work.

Gemma told us: "People are going to a see a huge change in me next year, I'm turning 40 and the people that inspire me do incredible humanitarian work.

"Princess Diana has been in the media a lot, and you look at her when she walked through the landmines and stuff and she's such an incredible woman.

"This is where I want to take my work now, I've got everything I want in life, I don't need anything more."

Referencing her diva alter ego, Gemma warned that it could be time to say goodbye – although it won't be forever.

She explained: "The GC might have to be put on ice for a little bit, we might have to freeze her for a bit.

"When I turn 40 I want people to think more of Gemma and more of my humanitarian work and things I am passionate about in life.

"Through my life and career I've grown as a person, there's a lot more to me now than just being The GC and I am really excited for everyone to see what I am going to be doing in 2021."
