Gemma Collins insists she looked like a MAN and her dad said she looked 'awful' before having her fillers removed

GEMMA Collins claims she looked like a MAN before having her fillers removed.

The reality star admits she got "carried away" with botox injections and filler before turning 40.

But after her dad saw an old picture of her before stopping the so-called "tweakments", he said she looked "awful".

Gemma – who has recently lose three stone – told New Magazine: "It's very easy when you're seeing something around you on social media. You start thinking 'I need my cheeks bigger, my lips done..'

"But I got to 40, looked in the mirror and thought 'nah', I need to go back to how I looked before.

"Dad saw a picture of me the other day and he was like, 'Gemma, you look like a man!'

"And I said 'dad you're right…' He just said 'it doesn't look like you – you look awful! You've got a big manly jaw but you're a woman!' and it was true."

Gemma turned 40 at the beginning of this year in January and vowed to stop changing her face and ditch her usual cosmetic treatments.

She admits that she took her obsession with Botox and fillers way too far, to the point where her mum Joan didn't recognise her anymore.

Gemma previously told The Sun: "My mum looked at me and went: ‘Gemma, I don’t recognise who you are anymore.’ I shocked myself that I started feeling that I had to look a certain way because I’m all about being yourself and shining as you are."


"When I turned 40 I took a look in the mirror and thought: ‘I’m getting this all dissolved.’ Because I don’t want to look like anyone else. I want to look like me again. I don’t want big pumped up lips. I want to look feminine," Gemma insisted.

"Sometimes people take their faces to a point where they can look very masculine. There’s nothing wrong with that – each to their own – but I shouldn’t be conforming."

Gemma, who found fame on ITVBe reality series TOWIE, has been open about the work she's had done on social media and previously confessed to spending £8,366 on treatments in less than two years, including fat dissolving injections, jaw contouring, Botox injections and facial fillers.

Now the reality star is embracing a new decade in her life and a new look after deciding to have all her cosmetic work dissolved in a bid to look like herself again.
