George Gilbey, known for his presence on Gogglebox, touched many hearts with his story of love and family.

One significant chapter in his life was his relationship with ex-girlfriend Gemma Conway.

They met in 2014, a year after George gained fame on Celebrity Big Brother.

Their romance blossomed in 2015, sparked during a chance encounter at Royal Ascot.

A year later, their love led to the birth of their daughter, Amelie, in 2016.

At that time, George expressed his excitement about fatherhood, saying it would ‘totally change his life.’

However, the couple’s relationship didn’t last, and they split in 2018, leaving Amelie in Gemma’s care in South West London.

Despite their eventual separation, George remained devoted to his daughter.

George, who worked as an electrician after his TV fame, was determined to be an active co-parent and be closer to his daughter.

Tragically, George’s pursuit of closeness ended abruptly in March 2024 when he fell to his death while working on a warehouse roof.

His mother, Linda McGarry, revealed that George was trying to save money from the job to rent a room near his daughter Amelie in Twickenham, so he could pick her up from and spend more time with her.

“George was trying to get money together to get a room. He was going to rent from his friend, Skippy, near to Amelie in Twickenham. George was on great terms with Gemma and wanted to do things like pick Amelie up from school. He wanted to be with Amelie, who he adored. They were on the third day of a job that was going to last a month, and he was going to get money together from that. When they were together, George and Amelie were always laughing. She is going to miss him terribly, like we all will.”

Despite financial struggles, George’s priority was to be a present father in Amelie’s life.

His last words to his mother were ‘I love you‘ on the morning of the fatal accident.
