Gemma Collins' dad has said she looked like a man before having her fillers removed.
The reality star admitted that she got “carried away” with her botox injections and fillers as a result of social media.
Speaking to New Magazine Gemma recalls her dad, Alan, said she looked “awful” before the treatments after seeing an old picture of her.
Gemma said: "It's very easy when you're seeing something around you on social media. You start thinking 'I need my cheeks bigger, my lips done.."
"But I got to 40, looked in the mirror and thought 'nah', I need to go back to how I looked before.
"Dad saw a picture of me the other day and he was like, 'Gemma, you look like a man!’
"And I said 'dad you're right…' He just said 'it doesn't look like you – you look awful! You've got a big manly jaw but you're a woman!' and it was true.”
Gemma recently turned 40 in January and promised to stop with the overload of cosmetic treatment, after spending £8,366 on treatments in less than two years.

The TOWIE legend has forked out for fat-dissolving injections, jaw contouring, Botox injections and facial fillers as well as £2,000 on a designer vagina.
She said that she knew she had gone too far when her mum Joan said she no longer recognised her anymore.
Gemma told The Sun: "My mum looked at me and went: ‘Gemma, I don’t recognise who you are anymore.’ I shocked myself that I started feeling that I had to look a certain way because I’m all about being yourself and shining as you are."
"When I turned 40 I took a look in the mirror and thought: ‘I’m getting this all dissolved.’ Because I don’t want to look like anyone else. I want to look like me again. I don’t want big pumped-up lips. I want to look feminine.
"Sometimes people take their faces to a point where they can look very masculine. There’s nothing wrong with that – each to their own – but I shouldn’t be conforming."
