Gemma has previously revealed the harrowing details about a life-threatening condition she was hospitalised for.

Speaking to Carol Voderman on Lorraine, she explained that she had developed a syndrome that had left her with minimal kidney function.

She said the syndrome came down to "years of taking calcium carbonate", due to an eating disorder.

Gemma works closely with Seed, an eating disorder charity, to emphasise the importance of early intervention, saying: "Early intervention is key and vital."
