Gemma Collins received an unexpected early birthday present on Friday morning after discovering Hollywood star Chris Pratt is a huge fan of her appearances The Only Way Is Essex.

The Hollywood star became an unlikely fan of the long-running show while filming Marvel adventure Guardians of the Galaxy in the United Kingdom in 2013, and he admitted to being particularly drawn to Gemma during a recent interview with Josh Smith for Glamour.

‘The GC? She’s a real star,’ he said when asked if he’d heard of the TV personality. ‘I mean, I love that show. I watched it when I was out here shooting years ago, got hooked on it. I’d be a little star-struck if I met Gemma.’

Pratt, 39, also expressed genuine concern after discovering she fell flat on her face while completing a skate routine on Sunday evening’s edition of reality show Dancing On Ice.

‘And she fell hard?’ he asked when informed of her heavy tumble. ‘Did she hurt herself? Is she OK?’

Discovering the interview on Friday morning, a delighted Gemma – who celebrates her 38th birthday on Saturday – promptly reposted it for Instagram followers, and even promised to grab Pratt two tickets to see her perform on the weekly skating show.

Captioning the clip, she wrote: ‘Wow my birthday dreams have come TRUE @prattprattpratt thank you for your lovely messages and ive got you 2 tickets to come and see me on @dancingonice.’ 

Pratt had previously discussed his love of The Only Way Is Essex on The Graham Norton Show in 2015, during which he even mimicked an Essex accent. 

Talking about his hitherto unknown knowledge of the show, the actor admitted he was introduced to it by his then wife, actress Anna Faris.

‘We love that garbage TV back in the states,’ he explained. ‘My wife is crazy about it and when I was here filming Guardians of the Galaxy my wife came out to visit and she fell in love with this show TOWIE, The Only Way Is Essex.’ 

Describing the show for the benefit of fellow American guest Melissa McCarthy, he added: ‘It’s like the Jersey Shore from here. It’s this town somewhere, Essex I guess, and these folks are just like the worst. 

‘I’m a parrot a little bit so when I hear it all the time I can pick it up a bit and do the accent.’

The actor is currently in London while he promotes new film The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part with co-stars Tiffany Haddish and Elizabeth Banks. 

Appearing on Friday evening’s edition of Graham Norton – four years after his TOWIE admission – he admitted he was initially unsure about reprising his dual role as Emmet Brickowski and Rex Dangervest. 

‘The first movie did incredibly well and people really loved it, so it was tough thinking how you do a sequel as the expectations were really high,’ he explained. 

‘I think we have exceeded those expectations and unlike a lot of sequels, it’s just really good. It’s a relief!’ 

Good times: Chris and Tiffany stepped out in below freezing temperatures on Friday to promote the film at Pop Up Lego Cafe The Coffee Chain on London's South Bank
