Gemma will donate I'm A Celeb... fee to charity

I went through horrific ordeal 24 hours before I left for Oz

Gemma Collins

During an exclusive interview with Eamonn and Ruth, TOWIE star Gemma Collins explained her side of the story following a dramatic jungle exit.

Gemma said, “I had been through a horrific ordeal… 24 hours before I left for Australia and I’ve had a terrible backlash from the media and the general public. But it’s not their fault because they don’t know what happened to me."

Gemma also revealed that she'd been paid a percentage of her fee, and she'll be giving it to charity, "It’s going to a children’s charity for starving children because a lot of it was played on in there, ‘Oh Gemma is starving, she’s leaving the jungle’ and I’ll be honest with you, I was starving! I’m a plus-size girl, I went from everything to 500 calories a day, and that did affect me..."
