TOWIE star is said to have lost three stone

Gemma Collins has been posting pictures of her new, slimmer self on Instagram recently – and she looks fabulous!

According to the report, The GC is undergoing the Skinnyjab weight-loss plan, which sees customers receiving a series of appetite-suppressing injections.

SkinnyJab's website states: "Using a tried-and-tested medical revolution which acts as an appetite suppressant, the SkinnyJab® plan can reduce your hunger, allowing you to eat less while avoiding the cravings for those troublesome snacks.

"Over a significantly short period of time, ​the SkinnyJab® plan can suppress your appetite for big portions of food, effectively shrinking your stomach and preparing your body to expect less food."

Meanwhile, a rep for SkinnyJab told Metro.co.uk: "Gemma has successfully used our weight loss programme."

The company added on their Instagram page: "Her weight loss secret has officially been revealed!

"We have been working with Gemma to help her lose those stubborn pounds. THIS IS NOT A FAST FIX TO WEIGHT LOSS, ITS A KICKSTART TO A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE!"

Earlier this year, Gemma suggested that her amazing weight loss was partly down to a vegan diet.

Sharing a video of herself looking slender in a white tracksuit, she told her followers: "Thanks for your weight-loss comments. My hard work is defo paying off. #veganlifestyle #eatlifenotdeath."

And Gemma's fitness instructor Vicky Young confirmed to New! magazine last month that her client had been on a healthy diet (albeit not a strictly vegan one).

She said of the star, who's been appearing on The Crystal Maze recently: "For breakfast she’ll have poached eggs, avocado, and tomatoes on sourdough; then lunch will be a big salad with kale, peppers and avocado, with either chicken or tuna steak.

"For dinner, I make her vegetarian curries, or sometimes it’s chicken and halloumi kebabs with peppers on a skewer and tzatziki salad."

However Gemma has been losing weight, one thing's for sure – her fans are loving it.
