The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins has vowed to join the Lionesses as the England women's national football team won the UEFA Women's EURO 2022 final on Sunday night.
The 41 year old has been championing the England team throughout their efforts in the UEFA Women's EURO 2022, which was watched by Prince William on Sunday night, where England beat Germany with an incredible 2-1.
Speaking to The Mirror ahead of the match, Gemma showed her support for the squad and praised them for their success on the pitch.
She said: "I have caught up on the football while watering my plants in the garden, I’ve been watching it through the bi-fold doors."
Showing her support for the group, she said: "I’m Lionesses all the way, you go girls. I think they’ve done an amazing job and I’m all for the Lionesses."
She even predicted that the squad was going to win the final, saying ahead of the game during the interview: "I predict they’re going to win it.
"They will win it for our country. Men will be no more, it’s all about the women."
Speaking about successful women, Gemma – or "The GC" as she's known – said: "It means absolutely everything. Us women back in the day, the suffragettes, we have been fighting for our rights for a long time.
"You know what, The Lionesses reaching the final just gives a nod to how wonderful women are."
Gemma even joked that she would join the team, saying: "If they need another team player, I’m there!"
Prior to Sunday's game, head coach Sarina Wiegman said: "We want to inspire the nation and I think that's what we're doing.
"We want to make a difference, so we hope that we got everyone so enthusiastic and that at the end the whole country is proud of us and that even more girls and boys will start playing football."
