When most people think of Gemma Collins, they think of the now infamous stage fall or the hilarious memes.
Yet recently, her social media followers have been watching the documentation of Collins’ incredible weight loss regime.
She’s been posting selfies right off the treadmill, sharing images of her healthy meals and people have been loving the positivity.
At least until Gemma’s most recent Instagram snap, in which she can be seen sporting a pink jumper with a bit of ribbon detailing from her very own fashion boutique, which has some fans less than happy.
Some have accused the TOWIE star of photoshopping the image around her waist, and are not pleased with her for doing so.
One fan wrote:
I love you gemma and you always look fab. You DO NOT NEED photoshop on your body or anywhere else.
I can see someones done a poor job on this photo…on your waist on the left.
Body positivity is about embracing what you have and loving yourself – I’d have a word with the creative team and keep being authentic you.
All the more reason she doesn’t need photoshop :) if you zoom on her waist on the left you’ll see what I mean.
Others among Gemma’s fanbase were quick to defend her and posted comments praising both her and her new jumper in an effort to help motivate her on her continued fitness regime.
You look amazing Hun. Loving the short hair to [sic].
Back in November, it was reported Collins was found collapsed on the floor of a bathroom after suffering extreme stomach pains.
At the time, it was feared she was suffering with kidney stones and there were concerns for her overall health.
She was supposed to be on set of The Only Way Is Essex, but had to cancel filming as a result of the collapse.
Only one week before the collapse, she was forced to pull out of a club appearance in Sheffield after being struck down with cystitis.
As well as these medical concerns, Gemma was put through the wars when she fell through the stage of the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards 2017.

Afterwards, GC worried her fans after posting a video, in which they noticed some pretty nasty injuries as a consequence of the downward drop.
Holidaying in Tenerife, Gemma took to poolside to post a swimsuit selfie, thus is 2017 and in the process, showed off her body confidence, as well as her bruises.
Many Internet Detectives credited the bruises, which covered her side, arm and chest, to the ‘stage fall‘ and sent warm wishes hoping the holiday would help the professional recover.
After her brush with gravity, Gemma told This Morning:
I’m in a bit of shock still, I am in a bit of pain this morning but I found the whole experience absolutely hilarious.
The seriousness of it is that it could have been fatal because what people don’t see is that under there it’s all machinery.
It could have been fatal but it wasn’t so you’ve just got to dust yourself off – it was the best moment of my life to stand on stage at Wembley Stadium but I just wish I hadn’t got so excited and spun round to give them the award and fell in the hole.
It seems she’s turned a corner from this slightly embarrassing moment and the more worrisome health concerns, with her weight loss.
Photoshop or not, she’s still done amazingly well to lose that much weight! Well done Gemma!
