The GC's offered up some wise words for fans

As summer approaches, there will be increasing pressure placed on some women and men to get their bodies ‘ready’ – which often entails dieting to lose weight.

However, if there’s one celebrity who is for everyone embracing the way they look, it’s Gemma Collins – and in a new Instagram post, she’s rebuked the ‘rib cage trend’ in favour of embracing her own curves, and fans are loving it!

Gemma, 34, has spent much of the year so far on a mission to lose weight – but instead of motivations to change the way she looks, she revealed on TOWIE that it is all part of her plan to become a mother, as losing weight will improve her chances of falling pregnant.

Despite her weight loss, she’s not relinquished her status as Champion of the Curvy Girls – and she’s not hesitated in showing her followers her holiday physique. Currently in Portugal, she’s posted photos of her posing in a low-cut swimsuit and a sun hat – and she looks amazing!

And in her accompanying words, she tells her fans that they should love and appreciate their bodies.

‘I can’t folllow this RIB CAGE trend what a load of [eyes emoji] but I can follow my own! (sic)’ she begins her passionate caption.

‘EVERYTHING my MAMA gave me LOVE your body what the [hell] is the rib cage trend lol !!!! #portugal #curvegamestrong

‘just get your body’s out girls and enjoy your holiday my hips don’t lie,’ she continued her pro-curves speech, before ending with:

‘Lol it’s too stressful trying to be picture perfect be your OWN KIND OF PERFECT’

Right on, Gemma!

Plenty of her fans praised her for her message of self-confidence, as well as complimenting her for how she looks.

‘You look bloody amazing, one stunning woman,’ writes one, while another agrees with: ‘Amen sista u look great.’ 

A second post shows her posing in the swimsuit again, but this time she adds the phrase: ‘confidence is the key to sexiness’…

…and that’s tough to disagree with – go girl!
