TOWIE star Gemma Collins faces being a witness in the High Court.

A Harley Street surgeon is suing one of his ex patients over "abusive and untrue" claims.

Gemma praised plastic surgeon Dr Riccardo Frati after revealing that she was taking a boob lift into consideration.

However, it is possible that she may be called to give evidence after he sued one of his patients for libel over her critical online posts.

In a review on Google, Karen Bowen-Carter, 53 was highly critical of his five-star reviews.

Mrs Bowen-Carter's post back in May had 8,000 views.

Solicitors claimed that the post meant that the surgeon needed treatment for stress and that it “damaged his relationship with existing patients”.

They are suing for libel and malicious falsehood damages and asking for £100,000.

The Sun has reported that Gemma may be asked to give evidence.

Mrs Bowen-Carter has agreed not to contact Dr Frati any more, or his staff or patients.
