‘I’m go­ing to be the new Joe Wicks’

Love Is­land’s Gabby Allen is in talks to host work­shops at her old stu­dios

Now (UK) - - News - Words by Selina May­cock

It’s no se­cret that fit­ness in­struc­tor turned re­al­ity star Gabby Allen had a body­con­fi­dence wob­ble when she was on Love Is­land.

View­ers of the ITV2 show will re­mem­ber she sobbed when she told boyfriend Mar­cel Somerville that she ‘felt unattrac­tive com­pared to the other girls in the villa’, and de­clared that she wanted a boob job.

Fast-for­ward two months and we can re­veal that al­though Gabby is still un­happy with her shape, she is set to give Lean in 15 guru Joe Wicks a run for his money by host­ing her own fit­ness work­shops – fol­lowed by a boot­camp in 2018.

The 25-year-old, who has just launched her own Gabby x Quiz cloth­ing col­lec­tion, spilled, ‘I’m in talks to go back to some of the [fit­ness] stu­dios I used to work at to do some work­shops and for next year I’ve got talks about do­ing boot­camps – maybe I’m the new Joe Wicks!’

Gabby, who has just moved in with her Blazin’ Squad beau, ad­mits that al­though she loves her new­found fame, ‘fit­ness is my pas­sion. I loved teach­ing, so I miss it. I love my life now too – but it was good for me as well. I was in such good shape.’ But th­ese days, Gabby has been non-stop do­ing per­sonal ap­pear­ances and pro­mot­ing her new cloth­ing range and ad­mits her hec­tic sched­ule is tak­ing its toll on her diet. ‘Be­cause I’m al­ways on the move, I think to­day is the first time I’ve ac­tu­ally done a food shop,’ she ex­plained.

And while Gabby has ruled her­self out of the New Year celebrity fit­ness DVD race, she has set her sights on hav­ing her own fit­ness app. ‘I’d rather be do­ing some­thing that’s on­go­ing and ac­ces­si­ble – maybe an app,’ she said.
