Gemma Collins has "hit a brick wall" with her weight loss regime.
The bubbly 'Only Way Is Essex' babe - who has recently shed three stone - broke down in tears on last night's show (12.10.11), telling co-star Frankie Essex she even cried at a recent barbecue because she was "too scared" to eat a burger in front of her friends and family.
She said: "I've hit a brick wall. I was never conscious about myself before, I felt sexy. I would have strutted along Brentwood High Street in a bikini. I just loved my food.
"I'm really struggling to lose weight. I had a BBQ the other day and I was too scared to eat a burger in front of everybody. I went up to my room and cried."
However, Gemma isn't the only 'TOWIE' star struggling with her body image, as Frankie - the sister of Joey Essex - later revealed she had been left with saggy skin after losing three stone on a milkshake diet as a teenager.
Frankie said: "If I've got a boyfriend, I hate them to see my body in bed. I hate them to touch me."
Meanwhile, mother-of-one Chloe Sims - who has already gone under the knife for a boob job, lip fillers and cosmetic dentistry - admitted she was resorting to bottom implants due to the "pressure" of living in Essex.
She explained: "It's the pressure of Essex! I'm nearly 30, not married, not engaged. I've got a small bottom, nothing. Maybe my new bum will get me a man."
