Gemma Collins has revealed she's planning to shed some pounds for the next series of The Only Way Is Essex - with the help of co-star James 'Arg' Argent.
The reality TV star, who admits to having gained weight again since slimming down last year, is joining Arg at a tough bootcamp in a bit to get trim.
"I'm a real life girl. I did decide to lose weight, but let's face it, I have put the weight back on. I'm off to bootcamp in Norfolk on Sunday with Arg for two weeks and I'm planning next series to shift a bit more weight," she said.
"I'm working out three times a week, I'm eating more healthily but I'm never going to be stick-thin. I'd just like to be slimmer than I am now. I'd like to get to a size 14 but I'm not losing any sleep over it. If you ask me to come over for a curry, I'm going to say yes."
Arg, who has also struggled with diets and fitness on the show, has lost "quite a bit of weight", Gemma said.
"Hopefully I'll do as well as him," she added.
