The 37 year old The Only Way Is Essex star will team up with Matt, 42, when the hit ITV show returns to screens in January.
Matt has now taken to Twitter to shut down a troll in an epic rant after somebody cruelly advised the official Twitter account of the Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield fronted show to “reinforce the ice” ahead of Gemma’s appearance.
Writing to his 101,000 followers, Matt hit out: “Who are you to judge and say something like that?
“Any decent ‘MAN’ wouldn’t body shame a woman. Unless your manhood is that small you’re threatened that their balls are bigger than yours.
“I’m sure your mothers well proud,” he continued before referring to the fact that the user didn’t have a photo on his profile: “Show your ace ‘Paul’.”
Fans rushed to approve of Matt’s damning message, with one writing: “I cannot ‘like’ this post enough!!! Well said! If you don’t like Gemma then fine, but don’t judge someone by their weight or the way they look.”
Another added: “Well said Matt can’t believe the amount of horrible comments about Gemma she is amazing to try cause I definitely wouldn’t I’d be so scared.”
“Alright, you fat c***,” one the men shouted as the other asked: “Eating again are you, you fat f**king pig?”
After turning round and waving at the pair, greeting them with a “hello,” Gemma then put her middle finger up at the bullies once they shouted their vile remarks.
