DEFIANT GEMMA HITS THE ICE FOR TRAINING
She faced cruel comments from online trolls over her weight when she was announced as one of the stars on the next series of Dancing On Ice.
But last week, a defiant Gemma Collins hit the ice for training and appeared to showcase her flexibility as she splayed across the ice and star-fished on her back.
The TOWIE star, 37, recently revealed she has experience skating after spending her childhood on the ice rink with her brother – who was a hockey player.
And last week, it was reported that TV bosses were so impressed by her enthusiasm and her skills in training that they were already billing her as the hot favourite to win the show – which is set to air in January.
