GEMMA Collins revealed her secret PTSD battle after nearly losing her Essex home while her father was in hospital with Covid.
The reality star, 41, said her HSBC bank account with all her savings was suddenly frozen and she was put through "hell" by the bank - just as she was about to exchange on her dream home.
The Essex favourite said the shock of being left cashless while making the biggest financial move of her life left her traumatised and "embarrassed".
Gemma jumped on an Instagram live with a small flower business owner friend called Andie who said the same thing had happened to her with HSBC.
