Dancing On Ice was plunged into a midweek crisis after reality TV star Gemma Collins "threatened to get out" on the show after Holly Willoughby blew her antics.
TOWIE's star is said to be "flooded with tears," after Holly called her "unprofessional" for taking a nap backstage while the rest of the crew waited for her during practice.
This behavior was exasperated by the star of Essex, 37, who left the studio 25 minutes before the end of the live show, because she would have been "bored" to watch.
Dancing On Ice host, Holly Willoughby, 37, spoke during the presentation of ITV & # 39; s This Morning and labeled "The GC" as unprofessional.
Holly said: "I love Gemma, I'm a big fan of her, I love her on the show.
"But I think there is a bit of professionalism in the work you do, just a little bit of pride."
This was supported by his co-host in both shows, the 56-year-old Phillip Schofield, who confirmed that "the entire studio" was supported by Gemma "who took a nap" during the afternoon.

Speaking with The Sun, a source said Gemma was about to leave the show after being devastated by the words of Holly and Phillip.
They said Gemma is "devastated by everything" and is "threatening to quit", as she hears, "there is a conspiracy to break down their biggest star".
Another source has labeled the reality star as a "nightmare", but is given free rein because "the producers know it's the biggest attraction".
If Gemma sticks to the process, the spectators of Dancing On Ice will be able to watch her second dance with professional skater Matt Evers, when they return to the ice on Sunday.
