Speaking to the Daily Star Gemma said: “I love The Only Way Is Essex. I wish them all well, but no, I won’t do it again. I’ve moved on,”
“Honey, I’ve got Valentino dressing me now. Do they really need to see me back down Brentwood High Street?”
Gemma will soon be appearing on a Channel 4 show called Gemma Collins: Self Harm & Me. In the show Gemma will open up about the difficulties that she has dealt with in her life and how she resorted to self-harming in the past.
A source commented that: “Gemma and Channel Four have worked closely together with Mind to make this new film that will come out later this year.
“The rates of self-harm have soared by 70 per cent in the past decade, with a third of 16 to 25 year old’s saying they have self-harmed at some point. Gemma wanted to do something to help raise awareness on the topic.
“She has never spoken before publicly about her experience of self-harming but believes by using her platform and speaking about how it affected her, she can ultimately help others.
“This is a side to Gemma rarely seen by anyone outside of her inner circle and is deeply personal.
“However she feels by speaking out and telling her story, she will help others to reach out and talk to someone before it’s too late.”
