GEMMA Collins has admitted she has a crush on ‘sexy and vulnerable’ Liam Neeson – because she believes he would protect her.
The reality queen, 38, wrote about the actor, 66, and his “hulking 6 ft 3in body” in her book The GC: How To Be A Diva.
The Dancing On Ice star – who recently revealed she will start trying for a baby with boyfriend Arg at the end of the year – penned: “Maybe it’s the sexy Irish accent, maybe it’s the hulking 6ft 3in body, maybe it’s because if I ever got kidnapped I know he’d rescue me and kill all the bad guys.
“Liam… is more than man enough to handle a diva. He doesn’t preen or pose…
“And underneath the tough exterior there’s a vulnerability. Liam is a man I know I could take home.
“He’d behave himself and he’d look after me.”
The saucy comments were made long before Liam’s race row, which followed comments he made about wanting to find a “black b*****d” to kill after a loved one was raped.
Despite the backlash, his new film Cold Pursuit raked in £7m on its opening weekend.
He told the Independent: “My immediate reaction was I asked, did she know who it was? No.
“What colour were they? She said it was a black person. I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be… approached by somebody.

“I’m ashamed to say that, and I did it for maybe a week – hoping some [Neeson gestures air quotes with his fingers] ‘black b******’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him.”
Liam shared the personal story as he promoted Cold Pursuit, which sees his character Nels Coxman go on a journey to kill.
The film’s UK release is set for 22 February 2019.
