Gemma Collins says she’s ‘the most successful’ woman to come out of TOWIE

The Only Way Is Essex superstar Gemma Collins has been on staple to British TV for a decade, first appearing on TOWIE in 2011.

Since leaving the ITV show, GC, 40, has gone on to appear in a string of reality TV shows – and she's now claimed to be the "most successful" woman to ever appear on TOWIE.

Since making her debut, she has appeared on Dancing on Ice, Celebrity Big Brother, Celebrity Masterchef, and I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! to name a few.

Talking to The Sun, she has now said: "People underestimated me. There is such a huge snobbery around reality stars, and I've always been the underdog on TOWIE.

"I wasn't the prettiest or the slimmest, yet I'd say I'm the most successful woman to come out of the show, and I'm not done yet."

After leaving TOWIE in 2017, The GC returned for a stint in 2019.

She continued: "I'm sure it has been tough for some of them. But when a lot of them were partying and lying on their sun loungers, I was building my career.

"We were all given the same opportunity and you've got to make the most of it. I didn't get any different treatment from anyone else that was on the show.

"I was 30 when I joined, so a bit older than some of them and I had that work ethic in me. I am a bit of a workaholic."

Gemma went on to quit the show again in September this year and has vowed not to return again.

The TV star seems to be on a roll as she listed off all of her engagements ranging from a BBC Podcast to Netflix flying her stateside to create some content for Orange is The New Black.

Things are going well in Gemma's love life too, as her relationship with Rami Hawash is going from strength to strength.

She recently described her boyfriend, 45, as the "fillet steak" compared to her "sirloin" ex James 'Arg' Argent.

Gemma, who recently burst into tears in public as she recalled her dad's Covid-19 battle, insisted there are no hard feelings between herself and James, though.

She also said they'll always have a bond after she supported him throughout his battle with drug addiction.
