TOWIE's Gemma Collins Told To 'Die' By Twitter Trolls


The Only Way Is Essex's Gemma Collins has become the latest star to be targeted by horrible Twitter trolls who told her to "die" because of her weight.

The star, whose positive attitude with her weight is like a breath of fresh air, has admitted to Now magazine that she has been targeted by online bullies. Revealing the sort of comments she was getting, Gemma said:

"I've had threats, like: 'Get in your car and die because you're so fat,' and: 'I hope your family dies because you're so fat'."

Despite the wave of Twitter abuse, the star, who has just launched a plus size clothing range, said she is happy with her weight.

She added: "The trolls hide behind a computer screen. They don't have the balls to say it to my face. But you can't dwell on it, otherwise you wouldn't live your life...

"I've made a success out of my size. I'm a size 18 - get over it."

Good on Gemma!
