Gemma Collins has returned to the Radio 1 Teen Awards, a year after falling on stage in a trapdoor while presenting an award – giving us the most awkward and epic awards moment in history.

And her boyfriend, James Argent, has paid tribute to the Towie star on the anniversary of the fall.

Yes, seriously.

Taking to Twitter, he shared a video of the fall with his 1.57million followers, explaining it made him fall even more in love with GC.

A hilarious iconic moment that will be almost impossible to top! Ill never forget being in the audience that day, it made us all love The GC @missgemcollins that little bit more! #RealityQueen.

Never, ever forget.

The 37-year-old recently opened up about that fall, explaining it has actually made her feel better about her upcoming stint on Dancing On Ice.

Speaking about how training was going in a recent chat, she explained: Im not scared of falling guys, Im alright if I fall a bit …

Obviously, Im not as fit as the others. You just sweat so much around the ice, but any fall compared to the Teen Awards is just not going to beat what happened there.

If I can fall down a trapdoor at the Teen Awards Im not scared to fall on the ice.

And, in another chat with The Sun, the Essex diva revealed the training was so intense she had already dropped a dress size ahead of the show – which is set to return to screens at the beginning of next year.
