Gemma Collins drops 11lbs in a month

Gemma Collins has lost 11lbs in a month.

The 35-year-old reality TV star - who has always battled with her weight - has shed almost a stone in just over four weeks after ditching brandies for slimline vodka, lime and soda.

Speaking to new! magazine, she said: "It's all about moderation. Where I used to think nothing of polishing off 15 brandies, nowadays I drink vodka and soda with fresh lime."

And, although she's already burnt off a good amount of weight, the blonde beauty is determined to beat the bulge even more by dropping three dress sizes to a UK 16.

She explained: "I obviously don't want to go down to a size 10 or 12, but I'm a 20 now and if I was a 14 or 16, I feel it's something I could do ... I've cut back on sugar. And I'm not having a bacon sandwich in the morning any more - I had watermelon and halloumi today.

"I'm starting with a trainer next week too. Nothing too heavy, thought - it's got to be something I enjoy."

Meanwhile, Gemma - who is an advocate for curvy girls - is adamant she'd never slim down to a size 10 for money.

She said: "I wouldn't do a DVD taking me down to a size 10, even for £5 million, because that's not who I am."

The 'Only Way is Essex' star was encouraged to kick start her weightloss after taking part in the new series of 'Sugar Free Farm', which will hit screens next year.
