'The Only Way Is Essex' star Gemma Collins is set to lose six stone and make a fitness DVD.
The car saleswoman is currently a curvy size 16 but says she's fed-up of being seen as the ITV2 reality show's resident fatty so is being shipped out to Norfolk to spend at least six weeks at a boot camp in a bid to lose the weight.
If she is successful, the 30-year-old blonde is set to earn £20,000 with a DVD deal and a contract for a magazine shoot.
A source told The Sun: "Gemma really wants to lose weight, firstly as she knows this is best way to make money in this business. She's fed up of being the fat bird surrounded by, albeit surgically enhanced, other women."
Gemma - who said she put on weight after a miscarriage and break-up from her boyfriend - is also hoping her newly-slim figure will help her win the heart of Mick Norcross after the club owner rejected at the end of series two.
The source continued: "She is hoping to get a man and still has her eye on Mick after snogging him at the show's wrap party."
