Brent was nominated for "Sexiest Female" at the 2001 British Soap Awards, for her portrayal. Merle Brown of the Daily Record has been critical of Gina. Initially enjoying her storylines, she grew tired of the character. She said that The Patrick family became a mess and said Hollyoaks was "unmissable" when Gina suffered an identity crisis. When Gina lost the college election because of her sexuality, Brown said that it was "not nice" but added that it was probably true. She later became annoyed that Gina and Emily began fighting. She branded the storyline as "nonsense" and questioned why they ever bothered to begin a relationship. She later said they "spend most of their life fighting" and jested that blokes would much prefer them to do it "naked in mud." By 2001, Brown could not stand to watch Gina any longer. She said she hoped she would leave with Sol or be murdered by pimp Steve. In the book The media : an introduction, Adam Briggs and Paul Cobley said that by 2001 homosexual relationships in soap opera were no longer a novelty. They said Gina and Emily's relationship was a notable example.
