Gemma Atkinson has told fans she can 'finally share' her latest career move after teasing her announcement last month. She teased a 'big' new project she's been 'quietly working on' after shutting down rumours she was set to star in a celebrity version of the hit rebooted show, Gladiators.

Speaking directly to her followers in a video shared to her Instagram Story, Gemma, 39, said: "I've got a huge meeting today, a big meeting for something that I've been working quietly on for... Well, the process started before Christmas so it's been a long time and it's something that I'm very passionate about.

"I've had to get it right. I say get it right, it's still not there, but it will be and it's something that I'm going to need your help with in possibly a few weeks. It's for you guys and I want it to be right. It's exciting. It's been a bit stressful at times but that's business and it'll be worth it. I just hope you all like it. So watch this space because in a few weeks I'm going to be asking you some Q's. Exciting!"

Speaking directly in a video to her fans and followers, Bury-born Gemma said: "I'm currently in the process of launching my very own health and beauty brand called 'Lil' Gems'. I'm so excited I can finally share it with you all. It's something that I've been quietly working on for the past six months or so.

"I don't want to give too much away but we've got a lot planned at Lil' Gems. It's just dawned on me, it's something I've been passionate about for a while but turning 40 this year, having two kids and working, I relieased how little time a lot of us have for a beauty regime and when it comes to our health and wellness, it gets pushed to the bottom of the pile. because of life."

She added: "So with that in mind, I wanted to create products that will still make us feel great, look great, smell great and perform great so there's a lot coming. But I don't want to give too much away but I would love you guys to be part of the creative process. I would love your input..."
