Gemma Collins was left "frightened" during her family getaway to Cornwall as her nephew Hayden reportedly drifted out to sea on a kayak.
On Thursday, Gemma, 40, rented kayaks from Ocean Sports Centre in Saint Ives for her three nephews for a fun day out on the sea, which quickly turned into a nightmare as Hayden looked "some way out".
In snaps obtained by MailOnline, the former The Only Way Is Essex star was seen frantically looking out to sea alongside a lifeguard and other onlookers in search of 13 year old Hayden, who is the son of her older brother Russell Collins, 43.
A source told the publication: "She was really frightened. Everyone knows how much Gemma loves her nephews, and she wouldn't forgive herself if anything happened to them."
It was added: "Naturally, she panicked when she realised Hayden was left out on his own and he looked some way out on his kayak, she rushed to the lifeguard who was very responsive, and used a jet-ski to quickly rescue him."
Luckily all was okay as Hayden was just "being an adventurous teenager and wasn't sure what the fuss was all about".
However, an onlooker backed up Gemma's panic and explained how quickly the situation escalated.
"We just assumed Hayden had gone a bit too far and would come back, then after about 10 minutes even I started to worry and thought 'it's been a while, he's not come back.' Gemma was so frantic, and rightly so, it was a really scary situation," they said.
OK! has contacted a representative for Gemma for further comment.
As well as her family members, Gemma has also been soaking up the sunshine in Cornwall with her boyfriend, Rami Hawash.
