After finding out she had been nominated for British Plus Size Fashion Designer Of The Year at the British Plus Size Awards 2013, Gemma called on her fans to vote for her to win.

In her first ever Instagram video, Gemma said: "Hi, this is Gemma Collins.

"As you know I've been put up for British Plus-Size Fashion Designer Of The Year. Please, please vote for me."

Gemma then asked fans to cast their vote on her official website.

The awards ceremony will take place in November and Gemma is up against fellow plus-size designers Anna Sholz, Gabifresh, Syreeta Badu, Caroline Drapier and Elena Miro.

Good luck!
