"I am in the church in Bethlehem and I have got tears rolling down my face," she told fans as she cried.

"This is the most breathtaking, unreal experience of my life. The feeling here is – you cannot describe it.

"It is just overwhelming, I hope everyone gets to experience this once in their life."

Panning round the room, she showed visitors queuing to "see where Jesus was born" as she told fans she had goosebumps.

"Your hairs stand on their end, it's just, I feel breathless, it is just so beautiful," Gemma concluded.

The Diva Forever star went on to show a snap of herself breaking down in tears in front of the church altar.

It comes after Gemma jetted off on a surprising New Year’s holiday with fiancé Rami Hawash.

While other stars have opted for Dubai or Barbados for their Christmas breaks this year, Gemma and Rami’s chosen destination has a sweet meaning behind it.

Rami, 48, is from Israel, and a source explained to The Sun: “Rami wants to introduce Gemma to his roots and his family that still live there.

"They're spending New Year there – it's a big step in their relationship for him to introduce her to everyone ahead of their wedding next year.”

Last year, the couple rang in the New Year in Israel and Gemma was able to see Rami’s family for the first time in 10 years.

Gemma said at the time: “He wants to take me to Bethlehem and Jerusalem. He's from Israel, and I've always wanted to go.

"Madonna's been there, so many people have been there. I've got lots of Jewish friends as well and everyone always tells me how amazing it is.

“I haven't seen Rami's family for nearly 10 years. It's going to be really nice. Now I'm getting older, I like to be a bit of a tourist. I would love to see Bethlehem. I'm really excited, so that's my Christmas present."

Since heading off ahead of New Year, Gemma has shared a peek inside the trip, including a snap of the ocean captioned: “Vitamin SEA”.

Gemma and Rami first dated in 2011, enjoying an on-off romance for three years before splitting in 2014.

They got engaged in 2013 when he proposed by hiding a diamond ring in a Christmas pudding.
