In a video to her fans, Gemma said: "I was never the prettiest girl on the show. I never had the best body.

"Obviously I was confident when I went on the show, but a lot of clothing brands wouldn't lend me their clothing because they said I was too fat.

"I was a size 14/16, and you know I'm bigger now, and basically I've got my own clothing brand. So to everyone who wouldn't lend me clothing or put me in their brands, what you got to say now, huns?"

A she delivered the killer blow she defiantly made Vs with both her hands.

The Instagram message also saw the successful TV star thanks her fans after being crowned the show's number one icon.
