Twitter went into meltdown when Gemma – or ‘tooth woman’ as she was branded by trolls from their daytime high horses – appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show.
Her protruding teeth got everyone talking on social media, in her part of the episode titled, ‘Stop harassing me just because I’m sleeping with your ex’.
Gemma faced a load of flack online, which she claims led to her having a breakdown.
Check out the clip below:

After the show my teeth caused a social media meltdown.
The abuse was terrible, I just wanted to cry. I actually had a breakdown.
The Jeremy Kyle Show stumped up £10,000 to sort her out some new teeth in one of the most incredible makeovers in TV history.
To be fair, considering it was partly the shows fault she was abused in the first place, it was probably the very least they could do?
As this is daytime TV, of course the whole thing was filmed.
Gemma has since posted some photos to Facebook which show her new smile in all its brilliance:
Fans of the show were quick to praise Gemma’s new look on the follow-up episode:
I don't care what people say, #JeremyKyle is great! So pleased to see Gemma happy with her new teeth!

But one user mentioned the fact it was a sad sign of the times how she’d changed her look to be accepted;
I remember the offensive things said about Gemma after been on #jeremykyle , its so sad she had to change to be accepted.
