And before you ask, no we’re not sure why either.
In a bizarre coming together of two pop culture references, The GC meets the ladies of Litchfield in a new promo video for the hit series.
Now, with Gemma’s popularity on the internet as the Queen of Memes, Netflix probably thought they were on to a winner by featuring her as a new inmate, but the result is just a bit... well, odd?
That said, we did enjoy the ladies’ dig at her short-lived spell in the ‘I’m A Celebrity’ jungle, as well as Gemma paying hommage to *that* iconic dress with her take on the prison uniform.
Turns out though that we weren’t the only ones left totally baffled by the whole thing...
