Former TOWIE cast member Billie Faiers was caught out last night when she ‘accidentally’ shared an edited photograph of her slimmed down waist alongside the original image.
The mum-of-two swiftly removed the photoshop fail from her Instagram story, in which the drastic difference in her waist size was visible.
Chicly dressed in a one -shoulder body suit paired with a baby pink skirt and a super summery sunhat, the Mummy Diaries star could be seen posing up a storm for the camera with her hand on her hip.
After deleting the shrunken snapshot, it was explained that 29-year-old Billie had uploaded the altered photo by mistake.
A representative for the TV personality said: ‘Billie is with a friend in Cannes who took the pic and edited it and sent back to her.’
Speaking to the Daily Mail the spokesperson added: ‘She uploaded it without checking it and as soon as she realised the error, she deleted the image.’
Despite the social media faux pas, the Essex girl continued to share pics from her luxurious French Riviera getaway, having jetted off for the sun soaked trip with new hubby Greg.
In Billie’s latest upload, she can be seen living it up on a luxury yacht beside Greg, with whom she shares four-year-old daughter Nelly and two-year-old son Arthur.
With the loved up pair sharing a smooch on the bow of the extravagant boat, Billie compared the romantic snap to a pic of the couple looking far more windswept, penning the caption: ‘Let the sea set you freeeeeeee …. Insta Vs Reality (swipe) …’
Fans were quick to shower the adorable moment with complimentary comments, with one writing: ‘he second pic is my fave – shows how much you have fun together ,’ and another swooning: ‘Love you two and Greg cracks me up xx.’

The Essex gal's body has changed over the years...
With former TOWIE star Billie Faiers celebrating her wild Ibiza hen do and a luxurious Maldivian wedding all in the space of eight months, something that can’t go unnoticed is the mum-of-two’s unreal bikini body, showcased in the countless snaps from the lavish vacays.
Of course, Bil has had a fab figure ever since she hit our screens back in 2011, but it seems the 29-year-old certainly wasn’t slacking at the gym in the run up to her sun soaked nuptials!
From curvy TOWIE gal to super-slim beach babe, take a look at Billie’s body transformation…
Flashback to 2011 when Billie first made her appearance on TOWIE, teaming up with younger sister Sam to take Essex by storm.
Sporting a bleached blonde bob and super accentuated assets, a then 22-year-old Billie was part of the OG TOWIE cast.
Aw! In 2012 Billie and hubby Greg Shepherd began their romance. In this snap the pair can be seen enjoying a night out as a pair, with Billie still rocking a more curvy figure in a classic LBD.
The pitter-patter of little feet!
By 2014 a big-bumped Billie and businessman Greg were expecting their first baby, Nelly.
Taking a break from life as a new mum, Billie jetted off to Tenerife with the TOWIE cast in 2015.
Flaunting her post-pregnancy bod, she confidently sported a series of all white summer ensembles.
It’s 2017 and Billie has another bun in the oven! Glowing her way through pregnancy, the yummy mummy showed off her bump containing baby Arthur.
Having been engaged to Greg since 2014, Billie finally flew off to Ibiza last year for her long awaited hen do, looking like she’d undergone a total body overhaul.
Show casing her slim line physique, Bil treated fans to plenty of swimsuit snaps as she partied in the sunshine.
Wedding bells! Billie and Greg tied the knot in May this year and they didn’t do it by halves, reportedly spending thousands on jetting their guests to a luxury resort in the Maldives for the lavish ceremony .
Billie was sure to share lots more beach pics showing off her petite frame as well as some utterly stunning snapshots of the big day.

Gem’s clearly not feeling shy!
TOWIE star Gemma Collins is currently living it up across the pond as she films her new reality show Diva Forever.
Feisty Essex lady Gem was sure to find time for some sun bathing though, sharing a saucy snap as she reclined in the LA heat.
Baring her entire bottom in a tiny thong bottomed swimsuit, the self-confessed diva left little to her fan’s imaginations.
Making sure she got full sun exposure as she pointed her booty in the direction of the camera, 38-year-old Gemma confidently posed by the pool.
Having taken on a new fitness and diet regime, Gemma recently declared on Instagram she had lost a significant amount of weight.
During a consultation with Kardashian surgeon Dr Ourian last week, Gem was heard telling him: ‘I need this fat sucked out of my face pronto.
‘I’ve just lost two and a half stone but the face don’t get any thinner.’
The Dancing On Ice contestant certainly hasn’t let her trip to the states derail her new healthy lifestyle, something she proved when she shared a snippet of an intense looking workout.
Uploading a video as she sprinted up hill in California’s Canyon Park, GC can be seen breaking a sweat in a bright yellow t-shirt paired with black leggings.
In the sporty footage the former Romford car-dealer can be heard saying: ‘Nobody’s going to get up this Canyon faster than the GC,’ while personal trainer and former TOWIE castmate Charlie King cheers her on, shouting: ‘Go girl!’
Beside the post, Gemma added a super motivational fitness update, penning: ‘RUNYON CANYON ……. To get to the TOP you can never GIVE UP ….. my fitness levels increase daily thank you @charlie_king85#keeppushingyourself.’
Plenty of Gem’s loyal fans were quick to praise her achievement, with one commenting: ‘Smashing ittt ,’ and another chipping in to say: ‘Monday motivation.’

Lydia says she feels sorry for Arg as he continues to struggle with his weight
Lydia Bright has backtracked after branding ex-boyfriend James Argent as fat as an ‘elephant’.
Former TOWIE star Arg, who dated Lydia on and off for six years before they split for good in 2016, was recently told he needed to lose 10 stone after his weight ballooned.
And Lydia appeared to take a dig at her ex’s weight gain when she recently appeared on Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing’s podcast.
The blonde TV star took part in a psychological test where she had to pick her two favourite animals, and she said they were an angel fish and an elephant.
That prompted Jamie to suggest that’s how she perceives herself and her boyfriend.
‘So what it’s an elephant? Big and round – maybe if I was still with Arg,’ Lydia replied.
But now Lydia has admitted she ‘feels bad’ for her ex as he continues to struggle with his weight.
‘I do feel bad for him,’ she told new! magazine.
‘No one wants to see anyone battle wth addiction. It’s a sad thing, not just for him but for everyone around him.’
Arg recently opened up to This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about his issues with food.
The 31-year-old Essex native revealed: ‘I’ve always gone up and down with my weight since I was a teenager.
‘I could be really, really slim in the first half of the year, but by the other half I’m morbidly obese.
‘All my problems stem from food. I have an eating disorder.’
Arg went on to explain that he replaced booze with eating, sparking his recent weight gain.
He said: I’m proud of myself with how my career is going and that I’ve stayed clean and sober rather than going out with my mates to a club and drinking.
‘But now if I’ve had a good or bad day, I’m now comfort eating. I knew I had put on a substantial amount of weight when I looked in the mirror and could see my clothes weren’t fitting…
‘My friends used to have a laugh about my love of food and that I’m chubby, but no one is really laughing anymore.
The daytime show’s resident doc, Dr Ranj, warned the reality star he needed to lose 10 stone to get back to a healthy size.
‘Anything I say is out of love, but it is tough love… Long term, you need to lose 10 stone to get back towards that normal range, and you need to lose 17 inches off your waist,’ he urged.
It comes after Arg also faced a career blow when he was axed from the long-running ITVBe show.
TOWIE show bosses said they have ‘no plans to film with James at this time’.

What’s the GC’s secret to weight loss?
Self-confessed diva Gemma Collins recently declared to her 1.3 million Instagram followers that she has managed to shed a whopping two and a half stone- and now she’s revealed the secret behind the weight loss.
Having been living it large in Los Angeles for the past week, 38-year-old Gemma shared a snippet from the moment she swung by Kardashain surgeon, Dr Ourian’s office for a consultation.
After demanding the celeb favourite doc ‘sucked the fat out of her face’, she revealed the details of her shrinking figure to fans, announcing: ‘I’ve just lost two and a half stone but the face don’t get any thinner.’
So, what has Gem being doing to drop the pounds? The former Romford car dealer revealed her secret on social media today.
Uploading a snapshot of a bowl containing a super nutritious looking meal, complete with cauliflower and lentils, the TOWIE star penned: ‘Follow my personal fitness chef who has been helping me on my journey to health.’
Tagging fitness expert Vicky Young in the post, Gemma credited her body transformation to the exercise pro, who she has been friends with since childhood.
Other meals favoured by Gem’s healthy pal include kale chips baked with olive oil and sea salt, turkey stir -fry with veggies and chorizo mixed with onion and peppers.
Having seemingly been chowing down on the mega nourishing dishes, Gemma made sure to show off the results of her lifestyle change this week.
Sharing a sizzling snap as she sunbathed in the LA heat, the reality star bared her bottom in a tiny thong swimsuit, leaving little to her fan’s imaginations.
Ensuring she was exposed to the rays from all angles, Gem pointed her perky bum directly at the camera, confidently posing on the poolside.

There's going to be another TOWIE baby!
Former TOWIE babe Chloe Lewis has announced she’s expecting her first baby with banker boyfriend Danny Flasher.
Chloe, 28, shared the happy news on Instagram with a picture of an ultrasound and a cute snap of her and her man cuddling on the beach.
‘Half me, half you,’ she sweetly captioned the shot.
Chloe’s famous friends quickly bombarded the Essex beauty’s comments section with well wishes.
Love Island star Montana Brown wrote, ‘Arrrrrrrrg I’m speechless. Jesus that’s going to be one hot sexy baby! xx
Her old TOWIE pal Jess Wright added, ‘Congratulations,’ while Lucy Mecklenburgh shared, ‘Aww congrats beauty.’
Lydia Bright commented, ‘Ahhhh so excited the news is finally out. So happy for you both, love you lots.’
And Ferne McCann wrote, ‘Wow congrats beautiful post.’
Mario Falcone, who welcomed his first child last year with girlfriend Becky Miesner, added, ‘Congratulations both of you.’
The reveal comes just a few weeks after Chloe admitted she wanted to have kids and get hitched to her hunky boyfriend.
She told the Mail Online, ‘You have to ask [Danny] that! I hope so, I’ve always wanted babies and marriage, so I’m sure it’ll be in the near future.’
After quitting TOWIE earlier this year, Chloe found success in the fashion world when she launched her own swimwear collection with Boohoo.
Speaking about why she decided to leave the long-running ITV show, she added to the publication: ‘I’m really grateful for the show, but I sort of outgrew it. I think when your relationship isn’t on the show, it’s very hard to do both.
‘I just feel like it’s more important to have a happy personal life, so I just made the decision to leave.’
Congrats Chloe and Danny!

Ther former TOWIE shocked fans with her latest look
Fans are begging Lauren Goodger to stop all her cosmetic surgery after she was snapped at Marnie Simpson’s gender reveal party looking almost unrecognisable.
The former TOWIE star, who has been experimenting with procedures since she shot to fame on the reality TV show nine years ago, was out with Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry, 23, when she shared the shocking images.
In the picture, Lauren, 32, can be seen pouting in a plunging black top but it is her extremely plumped lips and overly sculpted cheeks that fans were drawn to.
One follower just said: ‘duck lips’ and a ‘blown up mess’ while another said she should be demanding a refund from her doctor.
But more empathetic fans said they were saddened by her appearance.
One posted: ‘You are beautiful, you was before surgery.
‘You can do whatever makes you happy but don’t change your image to the extent of being unrecognisable. Imperfections make us unique.
‘You have the most beautiful eyes, a lovely figure, embrace what you’ve naturally been blessed with.
‘No need to conform to fit in.’
Another added: ‘I hope once u get help you realise life isn’t about plastic surgery and that is a quick fix that has temporary happiness.
‘True happiness and self worth comes from within.’
Recently Lauren had her braces removed, that she had been wearing to straighten her teeth.
She has never hidden her love for cosmetic enhancement either.
Lauren had a nose job soon after TOWIE launched after an accident and has increased her boob size from a D cup to an E cup.
She has also had implants in her bum.
Lauren recently admitted she would have further rhinoplasty and another boob job if she had children.
She is currently single but was dating jailbird Joey Morrisson.
He’s been behind bars since 2008 for crimes including kidnap, blackmail and ABH.
Lauren dumped him late last year after she found out he had been sending topless pictures to admirers from his prison cell.

The reality TV beauty is totally smitten
Former TOWIE star Jess Wright has finally unveiled her hunky new man!
Jess shared the first picture of businessman boyfriend William Lee-Kemp on Monday and it was soon flooded with sweet comments from friends and family, who are clearly thrilled to see her all loved-up again.
In the snap, William’s affectionately got his arm around Jess as they pose on a swanky boat in Port Andratx in Mallorca.
The TOWIE babe looks stunning in a flattering blue jumpsuit while her boyfriend looks all kinds of handsome in a dark shirt and chinos.
Showing they’re already pretty serious, Jess captioned the picture with a world emoji.
Gemma Collins wrote underneath the snap, ‘So happy for you,’ while Lydia Bright commented, ‘Yes this makes me happy.’
Lydia’s mum Debbie even chimed in, writing, ‘Good things happen to those who wait.’
Denise Van Outen shared, ‘Best couple,’ while Maria Fowler simply wrote, ‘Beautiful.’
The brunette TV star’s post comes just a week after William was revealed to be a close pal of Jess’s brother Mark, despite the pair trying to keep their romance under wraps.
Dishing the details on Jess and her romance with the businessman, a source revealed: ‘Jess and William are in love – they’re very happy together and their friends and family couldn’t be more chuffed for them.
‘William shares a flat with Mark’s best friend and they’re all close mates. He definitely has the approval of Jess’ family.
‘His friends describe him as ‘Mr Normal’ – he’s not at all interested in fame or being in the public eye but that hasn’t put him off being with Jess either.’
Speaking to The Sun, the insider added: ‘He understands her life as a celebrity but has his own focus running his audio visual company.’
Jess and William’s budding love affair comes after the Essex native split with Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice last April.
Before William’s identity was revealed, Jess spoke to CelebsNow about how things were going.
She swooned: ‘It’s going well. I’m not really coming out and saying too much about it at the minute because I think it’s nice to keep certain things private. But I’m really happy at the minute.’
‘It’s been an amazing year for me so far and it’s just getting better and better, so I feel very blessed.’
They've rekindled their romance... again
TOWIE stars Amber Turner and Dan Edgar are back together after being spotted packing on the PDA in Ibiza.
Although they’re yet to publicly confirm the rekindled romance themselves, the pair – who have been on and off since 2017 – were pictured all over each other as they enjoyed a short break on the White Isle this week.
Amber, who was only spotted snogging hunky businessman Ed Crossan man just last week, and Dan, who’s just ended his fling with Chloe Sims, first sparked rumours of a reconciliation when they started to post identical pictures from the same swanky hotspots.
When Dan, 29, shared a snap of himself posing in front of the Destino sign, dozens of his followers commented that Amber was also there.
‘Defo with Amber,’ one simply wrote under the shot.
Looking like they never split, the pair were also snapped walking hand-in-hand on the beach and later sipping cocktails poolside.
Amber and Dan’s reconciliation comes after the 25-year-old TOWIE babe insisted she would never get back with her ex.
Amber returned to TOWIE earlier this month to confront Dan, who admitted he had slept with Chloe Sims just days after he begged her to get back with him.
‘I feel like a fool, clearly what you said to me was b******, if you loved me you wouldn’t do that,’ Amber responded.
She also branded Dan ‘pathetic’ and insisted, ‘I can never get back with you.’
‘You can never be faithful to anyone. Good luck with your life,’ she told him before storming off.
Dan clearly did some major grovelling…

The GC is looking incredible
Gemma Collins has been showing off the results of her Hollywood makeover as she posed for a hot selfie after returning from Los Angeles.
Gemma, who has shed two and a half stone, is pulling her best pout in the snap shared with her 1.3million Instagram followers.
The TOWIE star’s hair is preened to perfection and her make up looks absolutely flawless in the hot photo.
‘Oh wow,’ fellow TOWIE star Lauren Pope commented, while her Strictly partner Matt Evers said, ‘Beautiful!’
‘Never comment on any of your posts. But have to say this is probably one of your best,’ wrote a third, while another simply wrote, ‘slaying!’
Over on her stories, she shared a video of people in the street shouting out ‘The GC!’ as she drove past in her taxi.
‘Guys, the GC is back in town… business as usual,’ Gem said. ‘Pulled up to the traffic lights and people start chanting ‘The GC’. The British public are glad I’m back in the UK!’
The reality TV star recently flew out to LA as she tries to kickstart her career stateside. According to reports, things are looking good because she’s just signed with a top US agent.
Meanwhile, the 38-year-old recently revealed how she shed two and a half stone, saying it was largely down to adopting a vegan eating regime.

The former TOWIE star was branded 'disgraceful'
Lauren Goodger has been slammed for plugging an ad recruiting girls for £1,000-a-week webcam jobs.
The former TOWIE star, 32, shared the advert from a webcam modelling agency on social media and added a list of ‘benefits’ of the job.
In the since deleted post, she wrote: ‘London Gems are recruiting webcam models. Start earning today. Start Immediately. Full Training Given.’
She went on: ‘On Going Support. Work From Home. Free To Join. No Experience Necessary. Get Paid This Tuesday.
‘Whatsapp Support Group. Our Webcam Models Are Taking Home up to £1000+ Every Week.’
Lauren also said it wasn’t a sponsored post, adding the hashtags, ‘#notanad #friends #unpaid.’
However, the reality TV star’s post was soon met with a huge backlash from her followers who criticised her for encouraging girls to get involved in sex work.
Some called it ‘sleazy’ and a ‘disgrace’, while another said, ‘I think you should be ashamed to put your name to this.’
‘Supposed to be a role model to people especially the younger ages that look up at you and you’re advertising sleazy c**p like this? Should be ashamed,’ said someone else.
While another follower added in disbelief, ‘Wow. Things are really getting a bit desperate when you’ll stoop so low as to promote rubbish like this. Running out of money?
‘Career taking a nose-dive? Your 10 minutes of fame coming to an end? What other reasons would there be for such feeble attempts of keeping people’s interest.’

Take a trip down TOWIE memory lane...
It’s been almost 10 years since the original TOWIE cast first burst onto our TV screens teaching us words like ‘reem’, ‘vajazzle’ and ‘muggy’.
The first-ever series featured the likes of Amy Childs, Billie and Sam Faiers, James Argent, Jess and Mark Wright, Kirk Norcross, Lauren Goodger, Lauren Pope, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Lydia Bright, Maria Fowler and Nanny Pat.
Despite an ever-changing line-up and an impressive 24 series in under its belt, TOWIE still manages to pull in a massive 1 million + viewers.
With its milestone 10th anniversary approaching, let’s take a trip down memory lane to see how the stars of the show have changed over the years…
While most of the original cast have long since quit the series, there are still a few familiar faces on the show. The most notable include Lauren Pope, Gemma Collins and Chloe Sims, though technically Gem and Chloe weren’t a part of the show from the beginning as they only joined in 2011.
TOWIE OG Lauren just recently announced she was quitting the show after nine years to focus on her business and budding romance with millionaire banker boyfriend Tony Keterman.
What are the original TOWIE cast up to now?
The ditsy, loveable vajazzle queen left the show in 2011 and went on to appear in Celebrity Big Brother, Channel 4’s The Jump and also landed her own documentary called It’s All About Amy.
On April 2017, she welcomed daughter Polly with ex Bradley Wright. She welcomed a baby boy last September, though little is known about her son’s baby daddy.
It’s thought she’s worth around £5million thanks to her line of fashion and beauty products and her own Essex salon.
Billie and Sam Faiers
Billie joined the second series of TOWIE in 2011 before leaving in 2016 to focus on her family. The 29-year-old recently wed Greg Shepherd, who she’s been with since 2013, in a no expense spared ceremony in the Maldives. They welcomed daughter Nelly in 2014 and son Arthur in March 2017. Apart from The Mummy Diaries, Billie shunned other reality TV gigs to focus on her clothing company Minnies Boutique.
The mum-of-two also has a lucrative line with In The Style.
Sam appeared in the very first episode of TOWIE before leaving in 2014 due to lack of storylines. The same year, she appeared in series 13 of Celebrity Big Brother. In 2016, the 28-year-old secured The Mummy Diaries with ITVBe and Billie joined her on the show the following year. As well as The Mummy Diaries, Sam – who was once engaged to Joey Essex – has a number of fashion collaborations.
When it comes to her love life, Sam has two kids with her partner, property developer and estate agent Paul Knightley. Paul Jnr was born in December 2015 and she welcomed daughter Rosie last year. According to recent reports, Sam is worth a huge £4.2 million.
After dating Lydia Bright, Arg got with Gemma Collins and the stormy pair have been on and off ever since. The singer was one of the longest-serving TOWIE members after appearing in last year’s series despite being briefly booted off the show due to his behaviour. In 2017, Arg checked into a Thai rehab facility for two months after struggling with a number of problems including alcohol and substance abuse.
He’s also appeared in a number of other reality series, including Celebrity Super Spa, Sugar Free Farm, The Jump and All Star Family Fortunes.
Jess, who used to date fellow TOWIE star Ricky Rayment, quit the show in 2016 to focus on her own ventures, including a fitness DVD and fake eyelash line. She briefly dated Strictly Come Dancing’s Giovanni Pernice, but is now all loved up with businessman William Lee-Kemp, who is a good friend of her brother Mark. Jess also recently splashed out on a £1.25 million pad in Chigwell, Essex, which was one of four houses Mark converted.
One of the most successful original cast members, Marks’s time in TOWIE led him on a lucrative journey to become a TV presenter in Hollywood. Before jetting off to LA, Mark, who dated Lauren Goodger, Lucy Mecklenburgh and Sam Faiers, took part in the 2011 series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and the 2015 series of Strictly Come Dancing.
He also presented Take Me Out: The Gossip. After returning from LA in early 2019 after almost two years away, he’s now focusing on other TV projects and catching up on lost time with wife Michelle Keegan, who he wed in May 2015. Speaking recently about starting a family, Mark said looking forward to having kids in the future though they’re not in any rush. Mark is thought to be worth around £4 million.
Following his time on TOWIE ,Kirk took a step away from the spotlight and is now working laying BT cables. ‘When I was on Towie I was known everywhere I went. I used to buy £70,000 Ferarris, £20,000 watches and £500 jeans — now I’m happy with a £20 pair from Topman,’ he told The Sun earlier this year.
He admitted he blew £300,000 in a single year after finding instant fame on the show. Kirk now has two children, Harry, two, and Violett, three, with girlfriend Dani Carr.
Once famously engaged to Mark Wright, original TOWIE star Lauren left the show in 2012 only to return in 2016 to become a regular again. Lauren has launched her own range of tanning products, lashes and hair extensions under the name of Lauren’s Way. Like so many of her co-stars, she appeared in a number of other reality shows, including Dancing On Ice, In Therapy, Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating. In 2016, Lauren started dating Joey Morrison but they later split amid claims he sent X-rated snaps to other women from his prison cell. Lauren has an estimated net worth of £2.1 million.
Lauren began her career as a DJ and went on to launch her hugely successful Hair Rehab business. Over the course of the show, Lauren dated a number of her fellow TOWIE stars, including Jon Clark, Kirk Norcross and Dan Edgar. Earlier this year she announced she was quitting TOWIE after nine years to focus on work and her relationship with banker boyfriend Tony Keterman.
Lucy was a TOWIE series regular for three years before quitting to focus on her fitness brand Results With Lucy. She followed up her time on the ITVBe show with appearances on Tour De Celeb and BBC’s Tumble. Last month, Lucy got engaged to former Corrie star Ryan Thomas, who she met while filming Bear Grylls’ TV series Celebrity Island, during a romantic trip to Italy. She previously dated Mark Wright, Mario Falcone and gymnast Louis Smith.
Lydia and Arg split for good in 2016 after dating on and off for seven years. In 2016, Lydia appeared on The Jump and in summer 2017 she took part in Channel 4’s rebooted Crystal Maze. Lydia, who also dated ex-TOWIE star Tom Kilbey, runs online fashion brand Bella Sorella with her sister and also recently launched her own podcast series with her family. She met current boyfriend Lee Cronin in a club in Ibiza in 2017 and they bought a house together the following year. After a brief split earlier this year, they’re now back together and stronger than ever.
After quitting the show, Maria – who once shared a flat with Lauren Pope – launched a home renovation company called Project In A Village. She’s also a trained make-up artist and the managing director of Fierce Face makeup. In September 2016, Maria welcomed a baby daughter with partner Kelvin Bate. The pair are due to wed this year.
Much-loved Nanny Pat, who was the grandmother of cast members Mark and Jessica Wright and mother to Carol Wright, was famous for her sausage plaits and funny one-liners. Nanny Pat sadly died in 2015 just weeks after celebrating her 80th birthday on the ITVBe show.

The GC has had a helping hand to shed weight
Gemma Collins has revealed that her three-stone weight loss isn’t strictly down to a healthier lifestyle.
The former TOWIE star has confessed that she has been using the slimming injections Skinnyjab to help curb her appetite.
‘I went on the jabs and that has been really good for me,’ she told the Sunday People.
‘You get injected basically and it curbs your appetite as well so it is handy when you are busy and on the road.
‘I definitely feel much better since losing weight and I have got more energy and stuff. When you eat rubbish food, you feel rubbish and when you eat healthy, it’s a lot better.’
Gemma previously hinted that her slimmer physique was down to a vegan diet and sessions in the gym, claiming she ‘doesn’t know why she’s overweight’ because she doesn’t eat much.
‘I actually don’t know why I am overweight because I don’t eat a lot,’ she told The Sun.
‘My downfall is that I eat late of a night. I can go all day without food. I normally get hungry at two o’clock in the afternoon.
‘I am night owl. Basically I will just start eating from two o’clock in the afternoon. I have never been a breakfast girl.’
The 38-year-old self confessed diva insists that generally she will munch on a takeaway sandwich or a portion of vegetarian macaroni cheese for lunch.
Cooking up dinner in the evening, Gemma says a typical meal could be chicken curry.
Detailing how she keeps her portion size at bay, she explained: ‘I stick two curry sauces in and then basically I leave it all day in the fridge. I like curry and salad. I would rather have salad than a potato. I might have a spoonful of rice and I have more chicken than sauce.’
Whether it’s her diet or a little helping hand – we still think Gemma looks great!

The TOWIE star is pregnant with her first child
Lydia Bright has shared a sweet pregnancy update with fans but is still yet to reveal the gender.
Taking to Instagram, the TOWIE star shared an ultrasound video of her unborn baby seemingly waving.
The thrilled mum-to-be, who is expecting her first child with ex boyfriend Lee Cronin, wrote ‘just wanted to say hello to the world’ along with a waving emoji.
Lydia, who is due in February, also shared two more images on her Instagram stories.
‘I love you so much already. It hurts my heart,’ she wrote next to one of the images, while the 29-year-old cooed over her unborn baby’s tiny foot in a second.
Lydia’s celebrity pals soon flooded the sweet clip with comments, including one from former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger who wrote: ‘Omg. so happy for you.’
Lydia’s mum Debbie shared: ‘To say I am bursting with joy, I’m over the moon. I’m exploding with happiness I’m going to be a nanny.’
While Denise Van Outen shared: ‘Aww we can’t wait to meet you baby Bright.’
Last month Lydia revealed she was expecting her first child with Lee – but also told fans they had sadly split.
Speaking to Hello! magazine, she said: ‘It’s been so hard keeping this a secret .
‘I’ve done so much travelling, I’ve done all my partying holidays, I’m where I want to be in terms of my life, financially and career-wise. It just feels like the right time for it all to happen for me.
“I’ve always wanted the fairytale. And it’s obviously not worked out exactly how I wanted.
‘I’m not closing the door on it completely, but I feel like I just keep getting knocked back. I can’t beg somebody to be with me, and I can’t beg somebody to love me.
‘I know this baby will be the best thing that has ever happened to me.’
She went on: ‘It’s not the ideal situation. I waited quite a long time to try for a baby, waited until I thought it was perfect.’
Lydia and Lee met in 2017 while holidaying in Ibiza and moved in together shortly after.

From TOWIE lothario to devoted family man, life couldn’t be more different for Mario Falcone these days.
The 31-year-old and his fiancée Becky Miesner welcomed baby boy Parker Jax in November last year, and he’s been keeping fans up to date with his journey as a first time dad on social media.
This week Mario and Becky took Parker on holiday to Italy and the former reality star couldn’t resist posting more adorable snaps of his son.
Alongside one of him holding Parker up, Mario wrote, ‘Nothing else matters anymore.’ And, next to a series of the little one getting messy with lunch, he joked, ‘Think he enjoyed it.’
Mario and Becky – who runs a beauty salon in Brentwood – have also been sharing their tips for travelling with a baby.
In an IGTV clip, Mario admitted he’s happy to let Becky plan ahead when it comes to keeping Parker entertained while going through security at the airport and during the flight.
But while it may seem like Mario and Becky have parenthood all worked out, he recently confessed that being a stay at home dad can be lonely.
Mario, who stays at home three days a week with Parker while Becky is at work, told OK!, ‘I take my hat off to any mum or dad who stays at home with their kids because it’s more intense and lonely than going to work.’
He added, ‘The sleep deprivation is very hard.’

Kate Wright has revealed a lovely post-wedding present from new husband Rio.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star took to Instagram to share a sweet image of the pair following their lavish Turkey wedding.
Taking to her Instagram page, which she has already changed from Kate Wright to Kate Ferdinand, the TV star posted an adorable snap of her and new husband Rio in the gym together.
The newlywed couple are known for working out together regularly, usually taking to social media to share with fans their antics in the gym.
In her newest snap, Kate reveals that on going to the gym she was met with sweet blown-up silver balloons reading ‘Mr & Mrs’, captioning the post: ‘Nice little surprise in the gym this morning …. the workouts continue #itsalifestyle ’.
Fans loved the sweet post, with comments including: ‘Ahhh love this!! ’, ‘Oh the name change too congratulations to you both ’ and ‘Congratulations again beautiful couple..’.
This comes after footballer Rio revealed that the pair were not currently on their honeymoon because of work commitments.
Appearing in the BT Sport studio in his role as football pundit, the Manchester United legend attended yesterday’s game between Tottenham Hotspur and German team Bayern Munich.
While on the panel, the newlywed was asked by Gary Lineker why he wasn’t away with his new wife.
“Rio, shouldn’t you be on your honeymoon?” asked Gary Lineker while the group were waiting for the match to start.
“No, no, no, we will leave that to another time,” replied Rio. “We have important things to do here in the studio.”
Gary then added: “Footballer is always the priority, is that right?” to which Rio then responded: “Yes, and she knows that!”
Kate and Rio tied the knot over the weekend in a gorgeous Turkey ceremony, surrounded by friends and family, including Rio’s three children who he shares with his late wife Rebecca Ellison.
“Having the boys walk me down the aisle was just amazing,” gushed the former TOWIE star to OK! Magazine.
“It was a hugely important moment for me and they did so well,” with Rio adding, “We’ve become a proper family unit now. I’m just so happy we’re all as one.”

Jess Wright has opened up on when she thinks brother Mark Wright will have kids.
Speaking about the topic with OK! Magazine, the TOWIE star said, “I am 34 and I’m not going to lie I do get broody. Of course it is on my mind and of course it will happen soon so we’ll see, watch this space.”
The TV star then went on to speak about the Wrights’ mum Carol and how excited she would be to become a grandmother.
“Oh she’ll be so happy,” she said. “One day when us lot have children she’ll be the happiest woman in the world.”
However she revealed that the pair don’t get pressured by their mother, adding, “There is no pressure, my mum is not that kind of woman but of course a mum can’t wait for grandchildren.”
Jess recently went public with current boyfriend William Lee-Kemp and gushed to OK! that she is a “lucky girl”.
“He’s amazing” she said, revealing that she feels like he could be “the one”, after she has been unlucky with love in the past.
She also opened up on her mental health and whether it is dependant on a relationship, saying, “A man never puts a smile back on my face, my smile is always there regardless of everything that goes on in the world.
“I just put up a post on mental health because I suffered so badly in the last ten years with it, it was one of those things that was clinical, but he has brightened up every day no matter what.”

As singer Megan McKenna faces her ultimate challenge competing on X Factor Celebrity UK the star looks almost unrecognisable, reverting back to her former self.
The 27-year-old, who turned her back on reality TV to focus on her music career has made a massive U-turn this year to mix reality TV with her music facing Simon Cowell and the judges on X Factor Celebrity and she looks a new woman!
But it’s not the first time Megan has faced Simon – in 2009 the young brunette auditioned on Britain’s Got Talent as member of girl band LOLA – which stood for Loveable Outrageous Loud Ambitious.
The line-up featured former TOWIE babe Jessica Wright and friends Amba-Hollie Wood and Lauren Lindsey.
And determined to give singing another shot, Megan auditioned for X Factor in 2014 and 2015 when she reached the Bootcamp stages for each audition. But unable to reach judges houses, she turned to MTV and fans will remember when she made her TV debut back in 2015 when she starred on the third series of Ex on the Beach.
A fiery character, Megan was then catapulted into Celebrity Big Brother a year later – which brought her some negative comments from viewers who witnessed the star have an on-screen meltdown which led to her being branded “mental megs” after she received a warning for abusive and threatening behaviour towards fellow housemates.
But once back in the outside world, in 2016 Megan was snapped up for The Only Way Is Essex and she soon started making headlines for her on-off relationship with TOWIE co-star Pete Wicks. And cue the Essex make over…
It’s during her TOWIE days that Megan found herself getting her lips enhanced.
Reflecting back on this craze, Megan said, ‘I’m mortified looking back at some of my old pictures. I spent three years pumping it in, thinking, ‘They’re not big enough let’s get some more.’
‘I became obsessed with my lips. I’d take a photo of myself and if I didn’t think they looked big enough I’d make them bigger with an editing app.
Honestly, I think I had body dysmorphia, because when I look back at pictures of myself now I’m horrified. I look like a duck.’
Using her on-screen fame, Megan branched out with restuarant MCK Grill and had her own Easilocks hair extensions range.
Music was still Megan’s passion and she got the chance to pursue her love of country music with There’s Something About Megan which took her to Nashville to follow in the footsteps of Dolly Parton.
And the show seemed to do the trick as Megan’s music was a success – having raced up the iTunes charts with her singles High Heeled Shoes and Far Cry From Love.
In the show she admitted she could feel the implant as she tried to do her vocal exercises and when we asked Megan what would happen if she was forced to choose between singing and enhanced lips she said, ‘At the end of the day, I like my lip fillers, I’m not going to get rid of them.’ She then added, ‘If the fillers got in the way of my singing then they’d be straight out.’
And back in the UK she supported Michael Buble at British Summertime in 2018, performing to her biggest crowd yet in London’s Hyde Park before going on tour herself.
After a break from the screen it’s refreshing to see Megan back and there’s something different -she’s ditched the booze and had her lip fillers dissolved.
‘I’m a completely different person these days. I’ve done so much growing up,’ she said.
‘I know people see me as Mental Megs – if I’d watched me, I’d think, ‘Oh God I don’t like her.’
‘But the truth is I was just a broken, upset young girl and I didn’t really know what I was getting myself in to.’
Minus the lip fillers, fake tan and hair extensions – and with performing experience under her belt, it looks like Megan has a new found confidence to give singing another shot.

The former TOWIE star has had an open battle with drugs in the past
The former TOWIE star has now admitted that he is ‘embarrassed’ by her actions after police and paramedics arrived at his home to check him over.
‘I wasn’t speaking to a certain person so I didn’t reply. They became concerned and called the police and ambulance,’ he told The Sun on Sunday.
‘They turned up and checked on me. They came up to my room to make sure I was fine.’
However, his parents reportedly raised the alarm again later that same day.
Arg added: ‘My parents were already there. Then this person must have called again and the ambulance turned up at around 4pm and we had a quick chat on the doorstep. He said it was a lovely house.
‘I wasn’t speaking to this person for a reason and they were worried about my safety because I wasn’t answering the phone.
‘I was perfectly fine, we all had a chat and carried on the day with my parents, we were just hanging up pictures.
‘The police and paramedics were only here for about ten minutes. I’m slightly embarrassed really. I apologise for any wasted police time as I was absolutely fine.’
Arg has suffered a long and public battle with substance abuse over the years, and was booted from TOWIE in May after failing a drugs test.
A source added: ‘James’ friends are beyond worried. Their concern is that if this behaviour keeps on happening that one day soon they will go around to find him dead…
‘Gemma raised the alarm because after hearing from his mum and dad she thought the worst…’
London Ambulance Service (LAS) confirmed it was called at 12.55pm to reports of an ‘unwell person’. A spokesman added: ‘We sent an ambulance crew and incident response officer and treated a person at the scene.’

TOWIE’s Yazmin Oukhellou has been told she's destined to find love as she kick-starts new business venture.
It’s been a rocky year for Yazmin Oukhellou, 25, but as she looks to put her heartbreak behind her as she puts her heart and soul into her new boutique business, the reality star turned business woman is set to have success in more ways than one.
During the opening of her Y.A.Z Boutique in Hoddeston, Hertfordshire, a psychic, invited to give readings to the guests, but when Yazmin took her turn, she was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
Yaz said, “She told me that I was destined to find love soon on a dating show. Then after telling me about what drive and ambition I had, and how well I was going to do in my new venture – she finally explained that I was going to find love with a northerner!”
Yazmin split from boyfriend James Lock back in July after two years of dating, and it came as a shock to the star who could see herself marrying James before he called time on their relationship.
The couple recently took a break from TOWIE after continuous rows, with producers saying that they needed to look after their wellbeing and work on their relationship. But it doesn’t appear to have worked.
Now Yaz is focused on her future and whilst friends including Bobby Norris, Bianca Gascoigne and Georgia Harrison, and family gushed about how proud they were of her, particularly after putting her heartbreak behind her, Yaz was overwhelmed by the news received about her predicted future – but promptly laughed it off too.
She added, “That’s not something I’m expected to happen – I’ve never even dated a northerner before! I’ll take the business success though!”
Looks like there could be some Christmas kisses under the mistletoe for Yaz…
Y.A.Z boutique is now open for business on 55 High Street, Hoddeston, EN11 8TQ.

Danielle announced this week she is expecting her first baby
Danielle Armstrong has unveiled a dramatic hair transformation following her baby news.
The TOWIE star announced earlier this week that she is expecting her first baby after finding love with her “best friend”.
And with a new chapter about to start in her life, it seems the expectant mum was ready for another change – and chopped her hair off!
Taking to her Instagram Stories on Friday, Danielle looked stunning as she revealed the results of her fresh new ‘do.
The 31-year-old has gone from long, straight hair to a short bob that sits just below her chin. She has also lightened her honey tones to a more dramatic icy blonde and opted for beachy waves.
Explaining her new style, she said: ‘Hi guys, so I have gone for the chop, what does everyone think?
‘I just wanted something new because I felt like I was getting a bit boring with my hair and I don’t suit long hair at all as much as I see so many girls with beautiful long locks it just doesn’t suit my shape face.
‘I have quiet a square jawline and high cheekbones. So I always feel like when I have long hair it doesn’t suit me so short hair works for me.’
She added: ‘I have never had it this short and I just want to say a massive thank you to two people; Alex because she created this lovely blonde. I wanted to go a bit blonder and she cut it last night.
‘I was literally thinking, “oh my god” as I saw all my hair falling but I much prefer it, it’s much thicker!’
Danielle revealed on Thursday that she is pregnant with her first child. Taking to her Instagram page to announce the exciting news, the TV star posted an image with four adorable polaroid snaps of her and her dad-to-be boyfriend, whose name she hasn’t made public.

TOWIE star Gemma Collins reveals her Welsh roots - in which she claims she has connections to The Voice judge and fellow Welshman Tom Jones - during radio interview.
Gemma Collins was a guest on Scott Mill‘s BBC Sounds podcast and as part of the recording, Scott introduces a Welsh listener to her idols and this week Gemma Collins was introduced and she gave a telling insight into her past.
Gemma, 38, admitted: ‘I’ve got family in Wales, down in the Valley’s. Abertillery – my grandad, this is a very true story, used to work in the mines with Tom Jones, back in the day.’
She continued, ‘I do have Welsh blood. My nan was from Wales but what I don’t understand is my dad don’t talk Welsh and I don’t.’
But then Gemma recalls a welsh word that she has learnt, and while she struggles to pronounce it correctly, she also has no idea what it means.
‘I do know one word, Cymru [Gemma pronounces Crymyou],’ says Gemma.
When no one understands the word, she explains where she read it, ‘When you drive into Wales there’s that red dragon on the flag and it says Cymru [she pronounced it Crymyou].’
Scott interjects, ‘You mean Cymru [pronounced Cumrey],’
Gemma replies, ‘That’s it yeah, what does it mean?’
Scott adds, ‘Cymru means Wales’
‘OH that’s good haha,’ added an embarrassed Gemma.
The GC is set to return to screens later this month as part of the ITV Dancing On Ice Christmas special, where she will take to the ice alongside previous 2014 champion Ray Quinn. A special trailer was released to tease the upcoming show, which gets viewers ready for the January 2020 new series starting.
And while reality star Gemma is all set on making a name for herself still, maybe Gemma will be on the next series of Who Do You Think You Are? to research the rest of her family tree… We’d love to see what other gems can be uncovered!

Gemma Collins has revealed how she managed to shed three stone.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star revealed that she has used a rather bizarre weight loss technique to help her shed a whopping three stone.
Gemma revealed that in order to lose weight over the Christmas period, which is a notorious time for over-indulging on alcohol, sweet treats and lots of meats and cheeses, she stores her unhealthy food in her car.
The reality star revealed that she stocks her cheese and other treats in the boot of her Nissan Micra car to make them harder to get to for when she wants to munch on something.
“I’ve lost three stone now and I feel better than ever,” she told The Sun. “But Christmas is the month of temptation and it is a struggle to be good.
“I bought some beautiful cheeses and I had to put them in my car,” she revealed. “At this time of year people say, ‘Oh I’ll have a mince pie’ but by the time you’ve got to Christmas Day, you’ve put on two stone.
“My car is literally full of cheese but it’s great because it’s helped me be more disciplined. I always try to have everything in moderation now.”
The TOWIE star told the publication earlier this year that she had tried weight-loss injections but was planning on switching her focus to exercise.
“I’ve been using them less and have stopped taking taxis and started walking more,” she told The Sun.
“I was doing some stuff for the BBC but rather than getting a car I walked.”
“I feel amazing,” she added, “but people still say I’m fat all the time and it gets on my wick.
“I am as I am and I won’t apologise for that. But I do think, ‘Oh God, when are they going to stop?’ I am happy, I’m fit and healthy, I’m loving life.
“And I’m not giving trolls any attention.”
