Gemma Collins has opened up about her horrific food poisoning incident which made her “collapse” onto her kitchen floor and left her “violently sick.”

The 40 year old, who recently enjoyed a glass of champagne in the sun after her recovery, revealed how she had been left bed-bound for four days and had to cancel all of her work commitments to allow her body time to recover.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star previously informed fans that she had fallen ill but kept the details of her sickness to herself.

This week Gemma opened up to her fans about why she had been so quiet online throughout the week and shared the severity of her illness.

Speaking on The Gemma Collins Podcast, the star admitted: “I took a break from the podcast last week as I’ve been quite poorly. I literally couldn’t even speak, but I’m slowly getting back on my feet.

“I would love to give you some exciting gossip about my week but literally I was so unwell that I could not get out of my bed.”

She went on to detail how her week quickly went from bad to worse after she came down with a terrible sinus infection and attended the funeral of her dear friend.

She added: “I had a really awful sinus infection and it was just a really awful week – I had the funeral of my dear friend that passed away.

“Three hours later I collapsed on my kitchen floor and was being violently sick and all the rest that goes with it – I won’t go into detail.

“I was poisoned – I had food poisoning. It was absolutely awful and my whole body just got so run down recently that I had to listen to my body.”


Gemma admitted that she became so sick she had to seek the help of a nurseafter she found she could barely walk or talk.

She explained: “I had to rest. It was awful, I had to cancel all my work and I was really looking forward to getting back to work this week, but I cancelled all of my work and just allowed my body to heal.

“I had to get a nurse to come to my house but literally I was sick for days on end, it was just not going.


“My mum and dad came over because they got really worried and I just want to thank them so much for helping me.”

Earlier on in the week, the TV personality shared with her fans how she was convinced that she had “some sort of virus” because she had become so poorly so suddenly.

She shared a picture of her nurse who came to tend to her while she was wrapped up in bed and gave her some extra fluids through an intravenous line.

Gemma concluded: “My whole body, it was like an alien was inside it that was just dying to come out, it was absolutely awful.
