As far as meme stars go (or memays, as they're now affectionately known), they don't come much more elite than Gemma Collins and Honey Boo Boo. Seriously, they're up there with the most talented dahlings of the memay world, and to be honest I'm all up for starting a campaign to get them on some sort of show together.

But it might not be too long before the pair meet, as it's been revealed that the GC is currently in talks with Honey Boo Boo's manager for a show of her own.

That means we could be seeing Gemma creating more dramatic singing scenes like this in America soon...

In an interview with Heat magazine, the Essex icon confirmed she's in talks for a spin-off weight loss show similar to that which Mama June appeared in.

She told the publication: "I was contacted by the people behind Mama June - they want to do her whole weight-loss transformation thing with me."

She added: "My manager's sorting it out now. Hopefully, it will work out. You know what it's like with the agents."

Now I don't know about you, but I am totally up for the idea of Gemma doing a weight-loss show. At this point, I can only imagine what America will make of her, but if she doesn't get a guest judge spot on RuPaul's Drag Race after this I will not be a happy bunny.

Maybe she'll even do a promo trailer for her show like Alex Beattie did for his infamous club appearance. We bloody hope so...

But GC isn't the only reality star in talks for their own spin-off show at the moment, because Made In Chelsea's Louise Thompson is also in the running for a solo project.

Revealing the news to Bang Showbiz, she said: "Me, Sam, obviously Ryan and Tiff - although she's currently not in the picture but she will be because I like her - we have this dream of having our show."

She added: "We've got a few ideas in line. We're discussing it with producers. The four of us are like the ultimate team."

Not gonna lie, we can't keep up with all these new shows, but we're definitely not complaining. Let the war of the spin-offs commence!
