'Everyone, meet Charlie!' TOWIE's Gemma Collins finally gets her prince as her new man surprises her in front of her friends
She's been the most unlucky in love member of the TOWIE cast who was rebuffed by the one man she had her heart set in in front of the cameras.
But TOWIE fans were left cheering at their TVs when Gemma Collins finally got her man – who gave Richard Gere a run for his money.
And they all concluded after weeks of speculation that he wasn't gay, especially after he passionately kissed Gemma in front of a club full of people.
Love lifts us up where we belong: Gemma Collins is surprised by her new boyfriend Charlie who kisses her passionately at a party in front of her friends
Gemma joined her TOWIE friends and co-stars at a party to celebrate Mario's 24th birthday party on the last episode of the fourth series last night, which had an 'M' theme, so all the guests had to come as a character beginning with that letter.
As she sat with sisters Sam Faiers – who was dressed as Minnie Mouse – and Billie Faiers – who was dressed as Marge Simpson – she gushed about her new man, Charlie.
They asked if he was coming to the bash, and Gemma said: 'Yeah, but he's taking ages getting ready.'
He's not coming: Gemma looked crestfallen as she got a text from Charlie who said he wasn't going to make the party
Then her phone beeps as a text message comes through, and she dons her glasses to read it, but then looks crestfallen as she says: 'He's not coming, he said something's come up.'
Looking close to tears, Billie and Sam reassure her and tell her not to get upset and he's the one missing out.
Gemma said: 'But it's embarrassing though because i told people he was coming – I just don't have that much luck with men.'
Let's get it on: Billie Mucklow was seen kissing Cara's brother Tom while Cara cosied up to Ricky…
…leaving Gemma looking sad that she was on her own
As the night progressed, Gemma was left alone as people go off and dance and she spots various couple kissing and tried not to get upset.
But, at the end of the night, a man appears at the door to the club dressed as a Marine and walks towards Gemma and places a huge kiss on her lips.
This prompted Sam to giggle and say: 'Well, I'll tell you one thing, he's not gay.'
Who invited the Marine A tall man dressed as Richard Gere from An Officer and a Gentleman arrives at the door of the club…
… and makes his way over to Gemma who is sitting with her friends…
… and after planting a kiss on her, snuggles in close
When she eventually came up for air, Gemma went red, giggled and declared: ''Meet Charlie!'
Also happening at the party was Joey Essex and Ricky Rayment shaking hands and agreeing to no hard feelings after their ruckus last week.
And Mario, who celebrated his birthday by buying himself an 80,000 Mercedes sports car, asked Lucy to move in with him, asking him to 'trust me and go with it'.

Looking good, babe: Mario and girlfriend Lucy look up at his image – later in the night he asked her to move in with him
He was mocked, however, by some of the female guests, with Georgina Dorsett saying: 'Do you think he has this on his wall'
Viewers also saw Lydia Bright's mother Debbie jump out of a plane even though she admitted she was nervous and said to her daughter before the jump: 'I've spent all day on the toilet, I thought it was a good idea at the time.'

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Debbie had a big smile on her face as she jumped
But when she got to the field for the jump she said she was excited and told Lydia: 'I want to get up there and say goodbye to everyone who's passed on
before me. Got your grandad's locket on, he'll look after me but can imagine what
he'd be saying about me, “crazy, only my daughter would becrazy to do this!”'
Also in the series finale, Joey and James 'Arg' Argent visit the tailors as James bemoaned that he can't fit into his trousers any more.
And when the tailor asked Joey which way he dresses, he replied: 'I dress reem'.
