No excuse for being nasty, but I don’t feel too sorry

STEVE CANAVAN: The case of the 'kitchen' door is open and shut

Have your say

There’s been quite a lot written about people hurling abuse at The Only Way Is Essex’s Gemma Collins, who walked out of the I’m A Celebrity... jungle after just three days.

There have been some vile things said to her, mainly referring to her weight.

I don’t understand why people say these things. What do they hope to achieve?

After all, if she was skinny, what would she be? Yet another perma-tanned, talentless no-mark with false eyelashes, extensions and a clothing line.

Let’s face it, she has built an image on being on the large side and featuring in a reality television series that seems to celebrate the brainless. So while there’s no excuse for being horrid to her, I wouldn’t feel too sorry for her either.
