Gemma Collins has a huge crush on Liam Neeson as he would be able to rescue her and "kill all the bad guys".
The Dancing On Ice diva, 38, revealed she loves his "sexy Irish accent" and his "hulking 6 ft 3in body".
She also admitted his tough guy persona makes her swoon.
The remarks were made in her latest book, The GC: How To Be A Diva, which was published before Neeson’s headline grabbing racism row.
Gemma wrote of the Hollywood star: "Maybe it’s the sexy Irish accent, maybe it’s the hulking 6ft 3in body, maybe it’s because if I ever got kidnapped I know he’d rescue me and kill all the bad guys.
"Liam… is more than man enough to handle a diva. he doesn’t preen or pose…
"And underneath the tough exterior there’s a vulnerability. Liam is a man I know I could take home.
"He’d behave himself and he’d look after me."
Gemma made the comments months before Neeson’s controversial interview with The Independent this month.
In the headline-grabbing chat, the actor, 66, claimed he’d walked the streets looking for a black person to attack after a close friend was raped.
He said: "My immediate reaction was… I asked, did she know who it was? No. What colour were they? She said it was a black person.
"I went up and down areas with a cosh, hoping I’d be approached by somebody – I’m ashamed to say that – and I did it for maybe a week, hoping some ‘black b*****d’ would come out of a pub and have a go at me about something, you know? So that I could kill him."
He subsequently denied being racist in a car crash interview with Robin Roberts on American breakfast TV .
Neeson explained: "I did it for maybe four or five times until I caught myself on, and it really shocked me, this primal urge I had. It shocked me and it hurt me. I did seek help…
"I’m not racist. This was nearly 40 years ago.”
The furore surrounding his comments led to Lionsgate cancelling a red carpet event for the premiere of his latest movie, Cold Pursuit, in New York.
