Gemma Collins tells friend ‘no eating’ ahead of Dancing On Ice debut

She's going to extremes to prepare

She admitted her nerves ahead of appearing on Dancing On Ice, but now Gemma Collins has said she’s not eating as she prepares to get her skates on this weekend.

The Only Way Is Essex star revealed she’s feeling the pressure to cut down her meals when she shared a video of her showbiz pal Jonathan Cheban flying out to support her on the show.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Jonathan said they’re going to “eat a lot of food” in the online clip, but Gemma wasn’t so keen!

She replied with the caption: “So happy to have so much support from my @foodgod flying all the way from NYC to be support me every day this week leading up to the live show 🙏 this means the world to me and @themattevers @dancingonice @itv 🙏💖🙏 #foodgod #chinatang #dorchester NO EATING Cheebs 😝😝 I got to get my skates on ⛸⛸⛸⛸”.

It comes after the 37-year-old dropped two dress sizes, thanks to all her training on the ice.

She told The Sun: “I’ve dropped two dress sizes already but it doesn’t matter how slim my body gets my face always carries weight.”

She also admitted she isn’t completely body confident because the weight loss has now made her want a boob lift.

The reality star, who is dating TOWIE co-star James ‘Arg’ Argent, added: “Everything has just gone down but the minute this show ends I’m getting my boobs lifted.”

Another factor that may be curbing Gem’s appetite is her nerves.

She confessed she has been feeling “sick” with worry ahead of the first live show and has even been losing sleep.

She wrote on her Instagram stories this week: “Can’t sleep with worry and nerves for Sunday watching my girl Shirley”.
