Makeup-free Gemma Collins ditches her ‘GC’ glamour as she steps out in a black gilet and marble-effect leggings
It was recently reported that she plans to embark on a career as a nightclub DJ once the COVID-19 lockdown finally comes to an end.
And Gemma Collins was spotted heading to her current day job on Monday, as she made her way to her eponymous fashion boutique in Brentwood, Essex.
The TOWIE star, 39, looked casually cool in a black gilet, which she teamed with a grey long-sleeved top and marble-effect leggings, while going makeup-free.

Rounding out her ensemble with a pair of black Yeezy Boost 350 trainers, the TV personality wore her golden locks in a half updo while she kept her makeup minimal.
Complementing her look with a colourful Louis Vuitton bag, Gemma was seen juggling a pink box, large bottle of water and warm beverage as she exited her car.
Her outing comes after it was reported that the media personality is eager to get lessons in DJing so she can spin the decks, hoping to earn up to £25,000 per gig.
A source told The Sun: ‘Gemma has been asked to DJ at parties and events loads of times in the past but she’s never known how, so has had to turn them down. But now a pal has offered to teach her and she is raring to go.

‘It’s a really lucrative business and she could easily make more from one gig than lots of people make in a year.
‘Lots of events and club nights won’t think twice about paying big money to get Gemma, she’s such a great character and is bound to draw in punters.’
The insider added that Gemma knows the country will be eager to cut loose and have fun after lockdown ends and is eager to provide the entertainment.
DJing won’t be the TV star’s first foray into music as she tried to crack the charts with a cover of Baby It’s Cold Outside alongside Darren Day at Christmas but it failed to make an impact.

Gemma has been going through a tough time lately as her parents Alan, 72, and Joan are battling Covid in hospital, and on Wednesday she revealed her father was ‘fighting for his life’.
Gemma revealed last month that both of her parents had been admitted to hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, and pleaded with her followers to stay safe and follow the government guidelines.
Speaking on her BBC podcast, Gemma said: ‘Oh my gosh, it has been just the most awful Christmas and New Year for me – both of my parents have had COVID-19.

‘My dad is still in hospital now – he’s literally been fighting for his life, so it has been one awful time of it.’
She said that juggling life was ‘so difficult’ at the moment, saying the pressure was ‘relentless’, telling listeners: ‘Things are so difficult, and it’s kind of relentless at the minute with everything going on.
‘I’m finding myself juggling so many plates at the minute, and it’s been a real shock to myself and my family with my dad being in hospital because he’s the one that looks after us all – and has always been the strong one in the family.
‘So, it’s all on me – and basically I don’t mind because things don’t always go to plan in life.

‘It’s not been a great Christmas and New Year – I’m going totally forget about last year.’
Gemma added that she became hooked on watching ‘superhero’ Wim Hof – a Dutch extreme athlete nicknamed The Iceman – who uses breathing techniques and meditation to survive freezing temperatures.
He holds Guinness World Records for swimming under ice and running a barefoot half marathon in ice and snow.
She said she felt like a ‘superhero’ after her parents got COVID, adding: ‘Wim Hof us up there as my Number One superhero – he has this amazing ability where he can be absolutely fine in freezing temperatures.

‘This guy is absolutely incredible. He even has a Guinness World Record for swimming under ice and holds the record for a barefoot half marathon on the ice and snow – he’s literally got superpowers.’
She added: ‘Wim Hof – send me you superpowers please – times a million – I really need them at the minute.
‘The reason I wanted to talk about superheroes is that I’ve literally had to become a superhero since having two parents with Covid, running a business, running a TV career, we’ve got a dog.
‘There is so much that you don’t realise that you have to get done every day.’
Gemma revealed last month that her parents are ‘extremely unwell’ after they both tested positive for COVID-19.
