Gemma Collins leaves fans confused with “odd” swimsuit snap

What's on it?

Gemma Collins has shared a snap of herself garbed in strange techno-swimwear and fans don’t know what to think.

The TOWIE diva, who is currently enjoying a holiday in Tenerife with on-off boyfriend James Argent, wowed her Instagram followers earlier this week with a bright pink swimsuit that showed off her curves.

But with her latest post, The GC had a number of her followers scratching their heads.

The pic showed Gemma standing at the edge of a pool, taking a selfie of herself in a swimsuit covered with wires and mini solar panels.

She captioned the photo: “Just recharging in the sun. Got my hands on the solar-powered #Techini from @onthebeachholidays.”

Some fans focused on the bizarre swimming costume, as one asked: “Omg lol… who would lay there with all that on?”

Another wrote: “I don’t get it! What’s it doing?”

Someone else commented: “I genuinely thought it was a bomb strapped to you.”

Others took issue with Gemma’s face and figure.

One follower said, with a confused-face emoji: “Your face looks really odd.”

Another clearly found it hysterical, writing alongside laughing-crying emojis: “Zoom in on her face!”

A third wrote: “She looks so skinny?”

Some fans liked the look of the swimsuit and asked where they could pick one up for themselves.

But the Techini looks set to turn out to be an early April Fools’ gag.

A link provided on the Instagram post by On The Beach led to a page supposedly advertising the swimsuit.

It boasted: “The days of playing music from your phone and leaving it by your sun lounger are gone with our state-of-the-art ensemble with solar panels.

“Strut into the summer blasting music from your ‘Boob Box’ (we’ll explain later) and charging your phone from solar energy – all without a bag in sight, phone in hand or any clothes worn apart from your trusty swimsuit.”

But unfortunately for anyone hoping to get their hands on the Techini, its launch date was listed as… April 1.
