Gemma Collins has taken inspiration from her recent break up from James 'Arg' Argent for her clothing collection.

The former TOWIE star and the 32 year old went their separate ways back in July after the star branded Gemma a "hippo" and reportedly asked her for an open relationship.

While at the time Gemma was said to be "heartbroken", it looks as though the TV personality is completely over the ordeal and is even using her time with James as a way to make more money.

The 39 year old took to her Instagram stories to tell her two million followers that she's put her iconic "You ain't ever gonna get this candy" quote in glitter onto a cream-coloured sweatshirt for all to enjoy.

In the short clip, Gemma told fans: "Guys, just added to the collection is the new candy jumper… You ain't ever gonna get this candy," as she blew a kiss to the camera.

The incredible quote comes from an iconic moment shared by Gemma and James on an episode of The Only Way Is Essex that aired back in 2012.

While James hung out in the pool with his mates during the episode, the blonde beauty waltzed over to give him a piece of her mind.

After Joey Essex asked her: "Are yous two gonna get together or what?" Gemma, smiling, replied: "Well, I just want to say something to you [James].

"You've been going around discussing what's happened between us, yeah? Well, let me tell you something now: You don't ever disrespect a girl like that here."

As Arg pleaded with Gemma, she continued by taking off her hot pink towel to reveal a black swimsuit as she said: "Take a good look at this. You ain't ever gonna get this candy."

Since her split from the reality star, Gemma has seemed to flourish on her own as she's launched her own hand sanitiser, reportedly signed a six-figure deal with Wizz Air, and most recently been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

And, after The Sun analysed who the richest of reality stars are, Gemma was recently revealed as the 12th biggest earner in the UK, bringing in £4.7million.

It comes as Gemma recently appeared to take a swipe at James in her BBC podcast Gemma Collins' Love Lounge while discussing workplace romances with her listeners.

She said: "Personally I've never fallen in love with anyone in the workplace – I couldn't think of nothing worse. I went to work to work. I didn't go to work for love.

"Yeah, I mean, I don't put work and love in the same category and yeah, I can honestly say I've never ever, I can honestly say, liked anyone – fancied anyone – that I worked with."
