Gemma Collins is embracing her size 20 figure.
'The Only Way is Essex' star was determined to lose weight and tone up in time for summer by hiring a personal trainer four times a week and sticking to a strict diet, but now the blonde beauty insists she's happy with her curves and has learnt to accept her voluptuous frame.
Speaking to Closer magazine, she said: "I'm working so much, I haven't got time to work out four times a week and stick to a strict diet. Right now I'm a size 20 but I'm feeling great and learning to embrace my shape. This is me and I'm just going to accept that and enjoy life."
The bubbly star - who has her own boutique and plus-size fashion range - admits she's not bothered about stripping down to a bathing suit because she loves her body, but draws the line at a revealing bikini.
She explained: "I'll try and get away somewhere hot soon. I prefer my curves in a swimsuit, as opposed to a bikini, and I'll bling up what I wear with diamantes! I've just finished designing my new plus-size range and I love making curvier girls feel confident and sexy."
