The reality stars latest spending spree comes after she revealed that her father is in full control of her finances, and limits her to a budget of £3,000 per month.

Last year Gemma revealed during an interview on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories that her beloved dad Alan, 73, began overseeing her spending after she burned through £50,000 in two months.

She continued: ‘I was going through a bit of a hard time and I felt disgusted in myself. I went absolutely crazy in Gucci. Shoes, bags, coats. 

The self-confessed millionaire said: ‘I’m a spender. My dad rung me up [and said], “It’s an absolute disgrace! You’ve spent £50 grand in two months up Knightsbridge. But the way I looked at it, it’s £1,000 a day over the course of two months.’

‘It was kind of like self-destruction in a way. And I’m pleased my dad took my card off me, because I’m telling you now, I would have ended up in trouble.’

‘I was staying at the Dorchester more or less every night of the week, at £600 a pop. I was wining and dining in there. I got absolutely massive. I could barely walk.

And while Gemma revealed that she once earned £75,000 in paid Instagram posts in a single day, her dad still insists on every penny being accounted for.

‘I get a budget. I get an allowance every month,’ said Gemma, as she specified her limit to be £3,000 per month.

She told Piers, 55: ‘I’ll say, “Dad I’m going up London today, can I have £1,000?” He’s like, “Well what do you need now?” I’m like, “Nothing, but I don’t want my card getting declined!” There have been times it’s been declined at Gucci.

‘If it was down to me, I’d be driving around in Bentley. I’d probably move into the Dorchester. But that is not allowed and it’s not accepted and I’m really pleased. It keeps me grounded.’
