She said:  I have lost a bit of weight so it doesn’t fit anymore’.

‘I have got hundreds of hoodies, I must have a hundred pairs of jeans and so many black leggings, it’s all going, but the good news is it’s all going on my Depop.’

Speaking to New Magazine in April about her fitness regime, Gemma said: ‘I feel more confident than ever.

 ‘I don’t weigh myself every week although to be honest I did this week and I lost another half a stone. I’m on a high fat diet – it all personal though, what works for me won’t work for you.’

She went on to say that it doesn’t really matter what the scales are saying but it’s more about how you feel in yourself.

A high fat diet involves a person reducing the number of carbohydrates they consume and replacing them with healthy fats.

She continued: ‘It’s nice to be able to fit into smaller clothes but more than anything it’s nice to feel healthy.’
