The 40-year-old star made the most of the UK’s hot weather yesterday as she soaked up the sun by a swimming pool.

She explained: “Girls, I’m just coming on here to say that the sun is shining.
“If any of you want to feel body confident then get your bikinis on.
“I’m feeling very body confident!”
Gemma looked slimmer than ever in the clip, wearing a quirky black bikini with fringe detailing that framed her smaller figure.
She completed the look with a sunhat and sunglasses, with her blonde hair tied back into a messy ponytail.
The former Towie favourite quoted Marilyn Monroe as she captioned the post: “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring
“HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARYLYN ! YOU ICON”.
Gemma went on: “LET’S JUST ALL LOVE OURSELVES! Let’s stop pulling ourselves apart don’t let social media conform us into being all the same 🙌🏻 or control you 🙌🏻 keep thinking outside the box 🙌🏻
