FORMER The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins’ nephew has been spotted cleaning her parent’s ears in a bizarre holistic therapy.
The reality TV star took to Instagram with a video of Hayden holding back laughter as he held the candles in the ear of the star’s mum, Joan.

Gemma, 40, filmed as her parents lay comfortably on the floor and a dining room chair as they practiced the strange alternative therapy.
The treatment – which is said to loosen earwax and improve sinus flow – involves placing a large, hollow handle in the ear and lighting it at the top.
Hayden, 13, could be seen helping his auntie as he placed a candle in her mum Joan’s ear as Gemma praised him for being a “good grandson”.
“Good grandson, Hayden – a good grandson,” she said through giggles as Joan snored loudly in the background, as the youngster smiled for the camera.
Gemma explained, over a photo of her dad Alan: “Hopi ear candles. Children do not do this at home, this is for adults. Do not do it without supervision.”
It comes days after Gemma and Hayden showed off their dance moves as she donned a stunning leopard-print outfit in a TikTok challenge.
Gemma looked happier than ever as she filmed herself busting some moves to Rod Stewart’s song Da Ya Think I’m Sexy? with her nephew.
Hayden, who is her brother Russell’s son, rocked a bright yellow matching tracksuit as auntie GC chose the animal-print number.
Last week, the self-confessed diva looked fresh faced as she went make-up free for a video to tell fans she’s joined TikTok.
The star said: “Guys it’s the GC, yes this is me with my nephew Hayden, he’s not back to school until tomorrow. We’ve made a TikTok. I want you all to watch it, I want it to go viral!”
Meanwhile she also shared some snaps from her New Years celebrations with fiance Rami Hawash at a luxury five-star hotel in the capital.
They splashed the cash to stay at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge.
It comes after the TV star recently revealed she has days where she feels “ugly” and “not good enough”.
Speaking on the Secure the Insecure podcast, she said: “Some days you have an off day. You know, you’re just like, ‘Oh, I look really ugly today, I don’t feel myself.’ Just this strange stuff, like, my life seems really good, is it suddenly going to go wrong? Am I good enough to do this job? Am I confident?
“You know, everyone has it, so when people see me, like performing on TV and stuff, before that, you do sometimes doubt yourself a little bit. But then I just take a deep breath and I go, ‘I’ve got nothing to lose. I’ve just got to do this.’ But you know, I wouldn’t be human if you didn’t have the down days, you know?”
The couple – who were together between 2011 and 2014 – got back together during the pandemic.
“We’re so happy, I’ve got a little step son now and I’ve got a really good balance,” said Gemma.
“It’s not all work, I’ve got a great personal life and please God, we go on to have a baby next year, when I’ve got some time – to do what you need to do to have a baby, because I’ve not had much time recently. Sorry, Ram!
“I feel like I’ve got my family now, my own family and we’re gonna be becoming a family and it’s kind of been the best year of my life really.”
