"It's one of the best days of the year,” the star said.

Gemma explained things kick off at 6am and she’ll go with her mum and sisters to do “normal yard duties.”

Then, when dad Michael and her brother James are awake, they’ll head to her grandma’s house.

Gemma continued to tell Tatler: “Gran normally does breakfast: bacon, sausage and egg sandwiches.

“There's always a good vibe; we're from a really big family, so there's a lot of us, which makes it really fun.

“All the cousins have grown up a little bit now and no one's too young. So it's not all about Santa, it's a different kind of Christmas. But it's still just as special.”

They then return home for some more present giving, this time with mum Louise Bonsall’s side of the family.

Gemma shared that there will be around 25 of them for a sit down dinner.

Dad Michael is always in charge of the music according to the reality star, and likes to “put it on so loud” that no-one can hear what they’re saying.

Discussing the dinner arrangements, Gemma said: “We've tried several things. We've got too many people to eat out. But then in previous years we have tried everyone having their individual things to bring in and helping in that way.”

She added: “As a family, we're not big gift givers, and my mum and dad's present to the family is hosting Christmas Day and Christmas dinner.

“My dad's friend has a catering company so it’s done as a little bit of a favour, which is a luxury in itself.

“We're obviously very fortunate to be able to have both sides of the family all in one room, at one table, just having really good quality chat and eating and drinking.”

Gemma called her football star dad a “true host” and said he “comes into his own” when family and friends are round for Christmas.
