The self-confessed diva Gemma Collins found out about bullying at school, social media critics and her problems with the birth of a child

Tonight is the only way to see Essex star known as “The GC” in ITV’s Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, where she shows the vulnerable side of her personality

The 40-year-old former car dealer who went on to become a celebrity shares her experience of being bullied at school that has now invaded her adult life through social media trolls

She said, “You don’t forget, but that’s the downside of fame. I’m much more comfortable in my own skin now”

Piers travels back to the time the star first tried to make it at age 18, when Gemma got emotional

Piers told Gemma how her first TV appearance was around 3Raised 000 new Twitter followers and interviewed the reality star about the abuse she received for starring on the show

“There were times when fans went online and said we hate you I think one of them said,” Get in your car and crash your car – I wish you were dead”

“You must have very thick skin and I think this is where the GC was created as well

But Twitter users had no sympathy for the star as they shared thoughts on Gemma’s vulnerability ahead of today’s show.

One user said, “If being trolled is a problem Don’t read it couldn’t be easier”

Another added: “The bottom of the barrel has been scraped so thin that it is now breaking!”

A third tweet: “Piers Morgan I love your life stories on ITV but I’m sorry but I’ll miss the one on Thursday with Gemma Collins because I can’t stand the waste of fresh air but definitely will look forward to the rest of the series “

However, one fan endorsed her honesty, adding, “Gemma Collins is so right when it comes to talking about food is a form of self-harm

“I wish those who say fat people are lazy and greedy would understand and not judge me that way”

Talking about how some people even say cruel things to her face, she said, “It was so embarrassing once that I took my mom to lunch, pulled up a van, and they started abusing me. It was nothing for me – I felt so hurt that this happened in front of my mom ”

“Again, I’m used to it, but I didn’t want my mom to hear,” she said, revealing that her mom was “very upset” by the incident

Collins also discussed her ongoing struggle with her weight, saying, “I mean, every opportunity – when I’m happy, I eat, when I’m sad, I eat

“I think it’s about dealing with your emotions and finding a way to deal with them in a healthy way and not turn to something that can harm you because it’s like a form of self-harm”

Collins was also asked by Piers to delete her own sex tape after she announced she had one and said she could be talked into selling it for £ 1 million

The Towie star revealed she made a sex tape two years ago that, according to her, “would knock Kim Kardashian off her pedestal”
