Gemma Collins believes her up-coming appearance on Dancing on Ice is her big chance to show the world she’s not a ‘fat joke’.
The TOWIE star has revealed she’s dropped a dress size due to her strict three-month training schedule.
Now she wants to prove to her critics that she’s the real deal – and announced she has insured herself for millions in case the worst happens on the ice.
In an interview with the Sun , the 37-year-old stressed she wants the perception of her to change when the staking gets under way in the New Year.
Gemma said: "Everyone thinks I’m the fat joke on the show but whatever’s going to happen in my life, I can do this.
"I am going to prove every f***er out there wrong. People will be eating their words."
The GC is now deep into her intense training and after shedding the pounds practicing for the show she feels she is nearly ready.
But her diva behaviour has already caused a stir with co-star Brian McFadden revealing she has been removed from a group What’sApp chat twice already – and claims she has been making demands to ITV staff.
But Gemma is enjoying the experience, adding: "When I first started, I couldn’t even cross my legs over. I was like, ‘Oh no, my legs are too big,’ but now they cross over fine. I think people will be impressed with what I can do.
"I’m not worried about injuries. I’m insured, actually, for a couple of million, so if I do have an accident, it sort of does me a favour, if you know what I mean. But I don’t want to!"
Maybe taking a tumble wouldn’t be such a bad thing if the weekend’s news is anything to go by.
Her businesses appear to be skating on thin ice after recently recording huge losses.
She has already been forced to shut down her Brentwood boutique due to debts of £76,000.00 – but now accounts posted for Gemma Collins Clothing Ltd show a loss of £9,526.00.
Dancing On Ice returns on Sunday January 6 at 6pm.
