Gemma Collins compared herself to Caroline Flack after facing nationwide ridicule for her short-lived appearance on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! 

The TOWIE star famously lasted just 72 hours in the Australian jungle back in 2014, and at the time faced backlash for shedding tears over the prospect of jumping from a helicopter and the lack of tasty treats on offer.

Speaking in the new episode of The Mail’s Everything I Know About Me podcast, Gemma noted that she had to develop a ‘thick skin’ after being cruelly trolled following her stint on the show.

She noted that ‘she could have been’ like Caroline, who died by suicide in 2020, after being arrested on suspicion of assaulting her then-boyfriend Lewis Burton.

In the third episode of the podcast, Gemma also shares the ’embarrassment’ she felt for rekindling her relationship with her ex-boyfriend Alex Moss, after he attacked her just days before she was due to appear on I’m A Celebrity.
