GEMMA Collins revealed fiancé Rami Hawash is whisking her away to Bethlehem for her Christmas present – and she'll see his family for the first time in 10 years.

The GC said she and Rami will be ringing in the New Year in Israel on the latest edition of her BBC Sounds podcast.

She said: "He wants to take me to Bethlehem and Jerusalem. He's from Israel, and I've always wanted to go.

"Madonna's been there, so many people have been there. I've got lots of Jewish friends as well and everyone always tells me how amazing it is."

The couple should in fact be there right now as Gemma said they would be flying out the day after Boxing Day.

She continued: "I haven't seen Rami's family for nearly 10 years. It's going to be really nice. Now I'm getting older, I like to be a bit of a tourist. I would love to see Bethlehem. I'm really excited, so that's my Christmas present."

The couple had planned to visit Tel Aviv in the summer but a change of plan meant they missed out.

This week Gemma confirmed she and Rami are officially engaged once again.

"I was talking to my mum yesterday about getting married…"

She clarified her 're-engagement' and added: "Yeah, but we can’t really come out and say anything yet because Ram was married before and his paperwork has not come through, so until that’s officially signed, we’ve not said anything.

"They’ve not been together for two years. I know her, she’s got a partner, she’s as good as gold.

"There’s a child involved, he’s only three, obviously I love him to death.

"But until that paperwork’s signed I can’t come out."

Recently Gemma has been seen spending time with Rami's son Tristan andconfessed the role of step mum has made her "definitely ready to have a baby".

The star hinted at their future together when she gushed in a Christmas post showing Rami surrounded by expensive gifts.
