GEMMA Collins broke her silence on social media with a sweet relapse in the battle over her parents’ coronavirus

The 39-year-old star has been understandably calm for the past few weeks after telling fans that both her mother and father were incredibly ill with Covid-19

And she had poignant words to share with her fans when she headed to Instagram this afternoon

The self-proclaimed diva looked almost unrecognizable as a little girl and beamed into the camera with her blonde hair that was tied into a high ponytail

She is standing next to her mother and her father is beaming in the middle of the picture

The former Towie star titled the post: “Your family is the best team you can have Now send so much love, hope and faith to everyone”

It’s her first post in a week when she posted a touching tribute to the NHS

Just before Christmas, Gemma shared her grief when she found out that both parents were suffering from Covid-19

On Christmas Eve, she confirmed her father was in the hospital after previously announcing that he had said he “would rather be dead” than as sick as he

At the time, she wrote: “Please, please, please observe the guidelines! Both of my parents are extremely uncomfortable with Covid 19!

“To see my dad cry, which he never does! Was a shock and said he’d rather be dead than see everything he’s going through that totally wiped him out and it’s heartbreaking My mother is also extremely uncomfortable, even with Covid this is real!

“And please take note and keep your loved ones SAFE – it’s really petrifying – what a difference a year makes”

Gemma was inundated with messages of support from her followers and prayed for her parents’ speedy recovery
