So when is the fitness DVD coming out? TOWIE's Gemma Collins hits bootcamp in just a sports bra and tiny shorts

By Sarah Fitzmaurice

Working hard: Gemma Collins from The Only Way Is Essex is pictured working up a sweat in a gruelling fitness session in a park

She said she was confident, felt beautiful in herself and was a poster girl for bigger women in Brentwood, but it seems The Only Way Is Essex star Gemma Collins is looking to lose some weight.

The curvy car saleswoman, who is nearly 17 stone and takes a size 20 dress, was seen working up a sweat as she was put through her paces during a gruelling fitness session in a park.

The reality TV star was happy to let it all hang out, dressed in a tiny work-out top which she had tucked under her breasts, and a pair of lycra shorts.

The outfit, which did little to flatter her fuller figure, will no doubt draw comparisons with pictures of weather girl Clare Nasir when she embarked on a fitness regime which saw her slim to a size 6.

But Gemma is not looking to undergo such a dramatic transformation and a spokesperson for the reality star told MailOnline she is just hoping to become more healthy.

He told MailOnline: 'Gemma is heading to a week long boot camp where she will be looking at her diet and seeking nutritional advice.'

Jumping for joy? Gemma, who tips the scales at nearly 17 stone and wears a dress size of between 18 and 20, is seen working hard building up her cardio with a spot of skipping

Getting fit and healthy: Gemma who is proud of her curves does not want to undergo a drastic weightloss but is looking to improve her diet and be more healthy

'She is exercising to become more healthy and a healthier shape.'

Collins, who has often spoken about her crush on fellow TOWIE co-star Mick Norcross, was seen skipping, boxing and jogging and certainly didn’t seem to slack during the tough training which took place just over two weeks ago.

However, her bid to lose weight comes after she has spoken about her confidence with her voluptuous figure on many occasions.

DVD due soon? The images of Gemma Collins, right, will no doubt be compared with the 2010 photos of Claire Nasir who was pictured working out (left) in a lime green two-piece before dropping to a size 6

Collins took part in a revealing photo shoot for heat magazine and said: ‘If I had to walk down a catwalk next to Kate Moss, I would. As long as I could have a tan and heels, it'd be absolutely fine!’

‘I'm not perfect, but I am confident and I feel beautiful. I'm a size 18-20 and almost 17 stone, so I'm doing it for us bigger girls.’

Feeling the pain: The car saleswoman stops for a breather after pushing herself hard during the session

Cooling off: Gemma, who is hoping lose some weight in order to be healthier, used her water bottle to cool down after the hardcore session

She added: ‘Some people are like, “Gemma, why don't you get the weight off?” and I say, “Cos I feel sexy!” The day I feel gross is the day I'll do something about it - but I don't.

‘I love my boobs, and I've got a little waist. My hips are a little bit fat, but you've got to shake what your mama gave you!’

Gemma joined her fellow TOWIE stars last night for the wrap party to celebrate the end of series two of the hit show.

The final episode of the series, which aired last night, showed Gemma bursting into tears after thinking that Mick Norcross, who she has openly admitted to liking, was coming over to talk to her with some champagne.

It's a wrap: Gemma Collins smooches with her crush Mick Norcross, who was also seen kissing a number of girls at the TOWIE bash. Right, Collins shows off a ring on her engagement finger

The bubbly blonde was left embarrassed and upset after he walked straight past her to another woman.

But as the episode aired she was actually enjoying a smooch with Mick Norcross at the wrap party held at the Sugar Hut nightclub- which Norcross owns.

However, the nightclub owner was seen kissing and cuddling a number of the girls at the party.

Meanwhile Collins, who seemed in extremely high spirits, showed off a ring on her engagement finger.
