She's been working with a health coach on a new diet plan over recent weeks, and Gemma Collins showed fans that it has certainly done the trick as she took to Instagram on Tuesday (29 May) to show off her weight loss.

The former TOWIE star has been on a high-fibre diet working with coach Steve Bennett and noticed how much her waist has slimmed while on a photoshoot this week. Talking to the camera, Gemma said: "'Hi guys so I'm on a shoot and I just want to show you, look at that, that's my normal size and that is why fibre plus is the one,' she said. 'I mean look at all that excess fabric."

However, some fans were quick to call out Gemma, who suffers from PCOS and has been open about her struggles to lose weight, in the comments - which have now been limited and disappeared from the post. One said: "She’s pulling an elasticated waistband, of course they are going to have a lot of give in them. Also might be more believable without the tag on the leg!!"

Gemma's fans may be apprehensive after the star recently admitted the lengths she has gone to in the past to promote a weight loss method. Speaking on The Mail's Everything I Know About Me podcast earlier this month, the reality star claimed she was sent to a bootcamp where she endured hours of exercise a day, before signing a huge deal to lose weight.

But when she headed to unveil her weight loss with the brand, she was told she "hadn't got thin enough."

Gemma revealed a number of other stories on the podcast, including that she was once set to grace the screens with her ex-boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent in a joint reality show. However, the venture was reportedly scrapped after Arg failed to turn up for filming.

The star had an on-off relationship with Arg, 36, her co-star from TOWIE. They dated briefly in 2012, rekindled their romance five years later, but ultimately decided to part ways permanently in 2019.

Revealing more about the scrapped reality show, Gemma claims that both she and James had inked a deal to lead their own show. Unfortunately, the project was dropped when he was grappling with addiction at the time.

The Celebrity Big Brother alum recalled the emotional breakdown she had when James didn't make it to the filming of the show. She however remarked it "wasn't his fault" as he was suffering severely with his health.
