Gemma Collins pal says weight loss ‘isn’t her’ as eating is her ‘thing’

Gemma Collins' close pal Jonathan Cheban, who she met on Celebrity Big Brother, isn't a fan of her slimmer figure.

The TOWIE star has been on a weight loss crusade since her Dancing on Ice stint, and has managed to shift three stone after she overhauled her eating habits.

Johnathan, who is now known as his social media persona Foodgod, admitted that while the Essex trimmer appearance is a good look, he feels as though her new diet doesn't match with 'The GC' image.

"In the pictures she looks beautiful. I hope she sticks with it," he told The Sun Online.

"Her personality is to eat and have fun, so she’s probably dieting. It’s not really her. Like, Foodgod is me. With her, it’s eating and being fun.

"Maybe she’s doing it for the health I know she loves to eat and enjoy it too."

The pair reunited earlier this year when Gemma jetted to LA for her Diva Forever show, and the pair visited a number of restaurants including celeb favourite Craig's.

The blonde bombshell's lifestyle change was sparked when she took part in the ITV skating competition, training for up to three hours on the ice and burning up to 1,500 calories per session.

She also started using the controversial 'SkinnyJabs' which claimed to help with "reducing cravings" and "stopping hunger".

Gemma showed off the rewards of her healthier diet and exercise regime in a recent Instagram post.

Uploading the shot to the photo-sharing app, the reality TV star looked unrecognisable as she flaunted her thinner face.

The newly-single TV personality looked incredible wearing an emerald green dress and bedazzled turban, while enjoying a night out in Dubai.

After already losing half her goal weight, she admitted she wants to shift another three stone.

"I'd be really happy if I lost six stone as that would bring me down to 12 stone and a size 16," she told The Sun.
