Joan asked: ‘Poor mother, where do you want to go after?’ to which Joan quickly replied: ‘Harrods’.

After giving her mum some chocolate to keep her going, Gemma then shared clips of the pair walking through Harrods alongside her pals, Charlie King and Lucas Armitage.

Narrating her shopping spree, Gemma mused: ‘It’s so strange shopping like this, my favourite coffee bar dead. Still love it nevertheless. There’s no other place like it.’

Joan added: ‘It’s very sad I think, very sad in Harrods, it’s just not the same. 

‘People are just not going to queue up for hours, people just haven’t got the time. They’re not going to do it.

‘It’s alright if you get there first thing and you’re the first in but people will not queue in mile long queues to get into a shop they buy online… It’s just a sad day today for me.’

The group then headed off for a slap up meal as they swung by a swanky local fish and chip bars to pick up a takeaway treat.  

Back in March, Gemma revealed that her mum had been rushed to hospital with pneumonia. 

Gemma also revealed that Joan has been at higher risk of contracting an infection as she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis, especially in the current climate as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread.

The star then shared another snap of the drip, with the caption: ‘Thank you to all the nurses who helped my mum she’s had pneumonia and on the mend.

‘NHS thank you thank you so over stretched right now my mum has rheumatoid arthritis and is high risk to infection.’ [sic]

Gemma has previously spoken about her mum’s health struggles, and just last year she was hospitalised for pneumonia.

She previously described her mum’s health battle as ‘two years of hell,’ telling The Sun: ‘I always tried to be really strong, so when I was with her I was happy, upbeat, like ”Come on mum, you’re gonna be alright!”

‘Then I’d leave the house, get in my car and cry for hours.

‘I used to ring my friends and say ‘I just don’t know what I can do to help my mum,’ it was the worst thing.’
