'Inspirational' Gemma Collins shows off her two stone weight loss on social media

She's been inspired by her mums struggle with arthritis

The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins has been wowing Instagram followers with new slim pictures after losing two stone.

Gemma's bright personality and honest attitude have always made her one of the most relatable members of the TOWIE cast, and fans have always loved that she's discussed her weight loss efforts many times in the past.

But recently her inspiration for shedding the pounds has been inspired by something a little closer to home. Gemma has been helping her mum recover from a condition called rheumatoid arthritis, which can cause swelling and stiffness in joints, making it difficult to move.

Shocked by her mum's condition, Gemma felt inspired to make the decision to look after herself and since aiding her mum's recovery has ditched alcohol and been eating healthily.

This change in lifestyle has been working wonders for the blonde beauty, who has lost two stone in weight.

Star magazine reports that a friend of Gemma's commented, 'Gemma lost nearly two stone by cutting out alcohol and eating healthily. She's taking time to look after herself now that her mum Joan is doing better.'

And her fab figure hasn't gone unnoticed on social media, where Gemma has been showing off some flattering new photos of herself.

In one of the snaps promoting a dress from her line, Gemma Collins Collection, she struck a sultry pose holding a glass of wine, and her 299k followers loved it.

As Gemma revealed more beautiful pictures of herself modelling her range, the compliments continued to flood in.

Hundreds of followers have been congratulating the 35 year old on her weight loss, with comments such as 'Lost loads of weight, keep it up girl xx' and branding her as an 'inspiration'.

Proving her focused state of mind, Gemma posted a picture of herself donning black skinny jeans with the hashtags #happy #settled #focused.
