Gemma Collins took to Instagram on Monday to share her Christmas tree woes.
The reality star, 42, told her 2.2 million followers that she was having issues getting her tree to stay up.
After her friends tried and failed to hoist up the shedding tree, Gemma enlisted the help of her neighbour.
He quickly got to work, and determined that the tree’s trunk was too thick for its pot, leading Gemma to exclaim: ‘Ladies, we do need men!’
Meanwhile, Gemma’s dog, Blue, whom the influencer bought in September, took advantage of the chaos and grabbed a quiet spot on the sofa and gnawed at a decoration.

The business woman shouted: ‘No! No!’ and tore the decoration from Blue holding it up to the camera to show the damage.
Prior to Gemma’s neighbour’s arrival, Gemma had three friends working on the tree, to no avail.

This comes after Gemma revealed in November that she has begun a fertility journey in the hopes of becoming a mother for the first time.
The former TOWIE star, 42, suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2012 and has been open about her struggles to fall pregnant in recent years.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline about her family plans, she revealed she was pleased to hear that Tana Ramsay had welcomed her sixth child at the age of 49, because it gave her hope that she, too, could conceive in her 40s.
‘The Tana Ramsay news was the greatest thing to wake up to. Incredible’, Gemma mused.
‘It really made me think positively about my future and kind of took the pressure off. I don’t think anyone knew she was pregnant, so it was a lovely surprise, but I got butterflies in my stomach when I saw it.’

Gemma is one of the thirteen celebrities who will strip off for The Real Full Monty.
The star had lost a significant amount of weight in the lead-up to the shoot, but insisted it was just coincidental.
She said: ‘I’m body confident. And like every girl one minute we’re up about ourselves, one minute we’re a bit down about ourselves. We’re only human.
‘We all come in different shapes and sizes, don’t we?’
