GEMMA Collins has told The Sun she no longer wants to slim down further - despite her doctor warning her to lose weight.

Gemma Collins said: "I have made peace with my weight. This is me. I am never going to be a Victoria Secrets Model. "I struggle and I am real about it.
It gets harder the older you get. I'm in my forties now. "But at the end of the day I think I am attractive. I think I am gorgeous. "There is a lot of junk in my trunk but I am always keeping an eye on my health."
