TOWIE’S Gemma Collins – never normally one to be overshadowed – was drowned out by credits music in a cringe-worthy moment on ITV series, Lorraine.
The reality TV star, 38, had shed her GC persona of a bold, brash, brazen Essex girl to pour out her heart to Scottish host Lorraine Kelly, in a candid chat about her weight issues.
Gemma, who now fronts her own TV series, spoke out on her recent weight loss which saw her shed three stone, and her new take on a healthier lifestyle.
She said: “I feel a lot better. I think it’s about making smarter choices.
“It’s not so much about what you look like, it’s your health.
“You could be slimmer but you still could have a lot of visceral fat around your body so it’s just being more mindful about what you’re eating.”
Yet as she made her important points, which many dieters at home may find helpful, she was cut out by the credits for the 60-minute show.
With Gemma appearing at around 9.15am, in the final segment of the show, it did not give her too much time to natter.
Lorraine, who was helpless to stop the musical credits from rolling, said: “We are going to continue this conversation, we really are. But that’s all for today, Catherine Tyldesley tomorrow.”
It remains to be seen whether Lorraine’s promise will actually hold true and James Argent’s on-off girlfriend will appear on the chat show soon.
Meanwhile, during her short chat, Gemma did still find time to strip herself down a peg or two.
