Gemma Collins has confirmed that she's donated her full I'm A Celebrity fee to charity.

At the time, some questioned whether Gemma deserved her fee, but the reality TV star always maintained she would donate any payment to charity.

In an interview at the time, Gemma said: "I didn't collect my full fee. I was given a percentage which is going to a charity for starving children."

Gemma said she'd been inspired to use the money to help the hungry after battling with hunger herself in the Australian jungle.

Fans were quick to show their support for Gemma's decision.

One said: "Credit where credit is due good on you for this!"
