TOWIE star Gemma Collins has slammed body-shamers over reaction to a topless photo of her.
The star, 37, came under attack when she was snapped enjoying a poolside frolic topless, which prompted people to fat-shame the reality TV star.
Speaking to the Sun, Collins professed to being proud of her body and vowed never to hide it away:
‘I’m not ashamed of my body, I’m really proud of it. Kate Middleton got papped topless and now the GC, it just shows you!’
She warned critics and online trolls that she was going nowhere: ‘I’m not going to hide away. I’m really proud, I’m 37 and I’ve never had one bit of cosmetic surgery done.
‘That’s why I’m popular with girls, I’m real and I’m totally natural.’
The TOWIE star was also seen chilling in the sun in a swimsuit, which is nothing remotely eyebrow-raising, until it was noted that it wasn’t from her newly launched from her Boohoo swimwear collection she’d been promoting.
Instead, she ditched the styles from her own collection and decided to go for a one-piece from F&F Tesco.
Gemma is one of the famous names confirmed for the upcoming series of Celebrity MasterChef, which were announced last month. She’ll join names like Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo, Keith Richards, Frankie Bridge, and John Partridge.
