Gemma Collins is reportedly setting her sights on a new non-surgical cosmetics venture that could see her launch her very own line of collagen fillers and fat-dissolving injections.
The former Towie star, 40, has already built her own brand following her appearance on the ITVBe reality series over the years and recently told Piers Morgan that her alter ego The G.C has earned her around £1million.
She already has her own clothing boutique in Essex and her online collection, with reports now claiming Gemma is hoping to make her mark on the beauty industry.
After being impressed with treatments she has indulged in herself, Gemma is now researching into launching her own non-surgical cosmetics.
‘Gemma is a very astute businesswoman with a huge following,’ an insider told The Sun.
‘She knows that fans trust her name and she is now researching the beauty treatment market and hopes to bring out a range of her own collagen fillers, fat dissolving injections and facial peels.’
They added that Gemma – who regularly indulges in non-invasive facials – is hoping to be a ‘big name in the world of anti-ageing’.
Gemma has been open about her own use of fillers and in October was seen having filler in her cheeks and the fat dissolved in her chin.
Spending £350 on the treatments, Gemma told fans her face felt ‘brand new’ after her non-surgical tweaks.
‘I just wanted to show you that this is me, this is how I look. There’s been a few comments recently about filters but I have been having amazing face treatments done.’
‘Moisturising, skin tightening, I had a little injection in my chin to take some fat out of my chin. I’ve been seeing a lot of people saying “you’ve got a filter”. Honey, this ain’t no filter! This is me. My authentic self. I have just been looking after myself a lot recently and loving myself.’
Gemma – who lost three stone over lockdown – added: ‘I’m a Queen at the end of the day. This is how I look. There is no filter on here. This is a normal video.
‘Yes my face has changed a bit but for the better. I’ve lost weight. I’m feeling good, I’ve got time to look after myself. And I feel brand new.’
Plans of her latest venture come after Gemma appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories to discuss her life in the spotlight.
The hour-long episode saw Gemma open up on being fat-shamed while starting out in the TV industry, the online trolling she regularly receives and her turbulent on/off relationship with James ‘Arg’ Argent.
She also confessed to having a sex tape and a recording of it on her phone, but later claimed said tape does not exist and that she’d actually lied in her chat with Piers.
