The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins revealed in a recent interview that she once shot a sex tape in case she ever needed to make some quick cash.
Speaking on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, the 40-year-old reality TV star said that she planned on ‘doing a Kim Kardashian’ and would flog the video of her having sex for a whopping £1 million.
Asked whether she kept the video – which features her and an unnamed man – Gemma said: “Well course, I might go skint one day, and I’ve gotta do a Kim K. Do you know what? Sex sells.
“It’s probably about 20 minutes long, but we’ve all done it with our partners, you know. I’m normal.
“I’d like to set up a pay-to-view line where they ring in, I take £1.50 on the phone call and then £3 or a fiver to watch the thing, so I’d be cashing in myself but I don’t know if that’s possible.”
Notorious Piers Morgan didn’t find this as amusing as the audience however, and hit into the reality TV star.
Piers asked Gemma if ‘everything’ of hers was for sale, which seemed to leave her baffled.
“I’m not prepared to do it. I’d rather go and work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year before I’d have to resort to that,” she said.
“I’m gonna go home and delete it after you’ve given me the riot act about it.”
Despite her confident nature, in a previous interview with the Good Morning Britain host, Gemma also told him about the abuse she’s dealt with as a result of being in the media spotlight.
“It was so embarrassing once, I was taking my mum for lunch, a van pulled up and they started abusing me.
“It wasn’t for me, I felt so hurt that that happened in front of my mum. ‘Look at you stuffing your face.’ Again, I’m used to it but I didn’t want my mum to hear it.”
When the TV host asked Gemma what they specifically called her, she replied as she held back tears: “A fat c***.”
Even though she tried to wave it off when it happened, she could see her mum Joan was upset by the remarks.
But that one occasion is emblematic of a much larger problem that Gemma faces every day with trolls criticising her on social media.
“You don’t forget it but that’s the downside of fame. I’m a lot more comfortable now in my own skin,” she said.
