Gemma Collins hoping to lose weight on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!
Gemma Collins hopes living off rations in the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! camp in the Australian jungle will help her to shed some unwanted weight
Gemma Collins is hoping to lose weight in the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' jungle.
The 33-year-old star - who has famously battled with her weight - arrived in Australia earlier today (11.11.14) and has confessed she's nervous about heading to the ITV reality series camp later this week but is hoping to drop a dress size or two while restricted to rations.
She said: "Every time I think about going in the jungle, I get very, very nervous. I get stomach cramps, I feel sick. Even talking about it scares me.
"I am used to reality TV but this is the unknown. I don't know what is going to happen."
Gemma added: "But the one good thing about going in the jungle is I will hopefully lose some weight!"
The curvaceous blonde - who is reported to have called the police on ex-boyfriend Alexander Moss on the weekend after he allegedly assaulted her - insists, however, that taking part in the show does not mean she is planning to quit 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
She explained: "I absolutely love TOWIE. I am missing the Christmas special but I will be back ... I do hope people see a different side to me.
"This is a chance for me to be me. I am not 100 per cent confident and I think people sometimes think of me as a crazy, shouty woman!"
The full line up includes Gemma, Kendra Wilkinson, Melanie Sykes, Tinchy Stryder, Vicki Michelle, Nadia Forde, Carl Fogarty MBE, Craig Charles, Jimmy Bullard and Michael Buerk.
'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' returns with its 14th series on Sunday November 16 at 9pm on ITV.
