Gemma Collins is preparing to jet off to Dubai to celebrate a friend's birthday and will be filling her luggage with stylish swimsuits rather than bikinis.

The former TOWIE star is looking incredible after shedding nearly three-stone thanks to a Jason Vale juicing retreat in Portugal and changing her diet, but that doesn't mean she will be reaching for the bikinis…

She told us: "I wouldn't say I'm a fan of the bikini, to be honest. I do know how to dress my shape. I can massively rock it in a one-piece. I'll be honest with you, I feel more stylish in a one-piece than a bikini. I don't feel 100 per cent secure in a bikini. One-piece is what I like to wear."

Gemma looked amazing at last night's Cosmopolitan #FashFest in partnership with Visa, rocking the red carpet in a see-through burgundy top from Evans. The brand picked up the Cosmopolitan Fashion Award for 'Best For Curves' at the glitzy bash.

She told journalists: "I just feel a lot healthier and happier. There is always so much scrutiny on people and how they look, whether they are too fat or thin. If you're happy healthy, does it matter? We can't all be the same. Some people are a little bigger than others but ultimately it's how you feel as a person. I feel really good, healthy, happy and a lot less stressed."

"It's nice to get compliments for the right reasons," she added. "And even if I didn't get compliments, I know how good I feel. I would never normally step out in just a bra!"
