Towie’s Gemma smuggled takeaways into fitness camp

Thousands turned out to last weekend's Southsea Food Festival

CHERYL GIBBS: Forget Glasto, Leigh Park’s the place for festivals

Have your say

I’ve been watching I’m A Celebrity and was delighted when I found out that Towie’s Gemma Collins was going into the jungle with the other so-called ‘celebrities’.

Not because I’m a fan of hers – in fact, believe it or not, I’ve never watched one episode of the hit Essex reality show. But I did get to know Gemma a bit when I went to a fitness week boot camp a few years ago in Norfolk. She was there and I have to say, although I’m sure she plays up to the camera, what I saw from her short time in the jungle, was true to how she was in the boot camp.

I’m not surprised she quit the jungle. She was in the boot camp for a month and they couldn’t understand why she wasn’t losing weight until they found out she’d been sneaking in takeaways!
