She’s never been a wallflower, but Gemma Collins has been showing her sultrier side over the past few months – and giving ex-boyfriend James “Arg” Argent a glimpse of what he’s missing in the process. Now, according to insiders, Gem’s decided it’s time to up the ante and show the world just how sexy she can be – for a premium price, that is.

We’re told she’s been closely watching the growing success of OnlyFans (the subscription-based platform where users can post risqué content for paying fans) and has decided it’s time to cash-in on her candy. And that means joining the site, with a “tasteful” nude photo shoot to kick things off.

“Gemma is really impressed with how far she’s come on her weight-loss journey and how good she looks,” says an insider close to the reality star, who hasn’t let her bitter split from Arg – after he shockingly called her a “hippo” and a “fat f--k” via text – hold her back or hamper her health kick.

“But she’s also annoyed that she still worries about what Arg is getting up to, or who he’s going to be pictured with. She wants to keep the attention on her and maybe make him a bit jealous, too, by doing some kind of pin-up shoot. She wants to prove to him that she’s a sex symbol and that he’s an idiot for constantly trying to put her down and call her names.”

Sadly, Gemma caught wind that Arg had been bad-mouthing her weight behind her back, and confronted him in Marbella in the summer of 2012, "You've been going around discussing what happened between us. Well let me tell you something now, you don't ever disrespect a girl like that again. Take a good look at this, you ain't ever gonna get this candy!"

At Arg's 30th birthday party, he stood up and practically declared his love for Gemma, telling the congregation, "Gemma you're so lovely to me, you're always there whenever I need you. You treat me with such respect, you're kind to me and you make me laugh so much." They then had a lovely kiss.

Although things seemed to be going well for the pair, fans were left confused when the GC met Laurence whilst taking part in the January 2018 series of Celebs Go Dating, and it seemed to be successful for her as she got on well with car expert Laurence Hearn, but things fizzled out in March when she dumped him LIVE on Loose Women, and she got back with Arg.

James Argent, April 2018

Arg officially asked Gemma to be his girlfriend on TOWIE in April 2018, and the pair don't seem to have looked back since! He's been supporting her during her stint on Dancing On Ice and they've even been talking about having children together.HOWEVER - in March 2019, Arg and Gem briefly split after Arg was found to have sent Gemma some VILE texts. Reports suggested that Gemma 'kicked Arg out of the house' after he shared a video of her snoring, before things escalated and he reportedly told her she has 'more rolls than Greggs'.There were also reports that when Gemma asked Arg to leave her home, the TOWIE star added, 'You fat horrible lump. Nasty mean woman. Who the f--- do you think you are? You've got more rolls than Greggs.' [sic]Thankfully, they're back on track as of March 2019!

Meanwhile, it’s not just a boost in confidence that’s made Gem, 39, consider baring all. Over the past few months, OnlyFans has rocketed in success, with A-list names such as Bella Thorne and Cardi B raking it in with their pay-per-view content – while homegrown stars like Kerry Katona and Lauren Goodger are also making big bucks. Last month, it was estimated that former Love Islander Megan Barton-Hanson is earning up to £800k per month with her members-only photos and videos on the site.

According to our insider, savvy businesswoman Gemma is always looking for lucrative ways to stay relevant – and OnlyFans is the obvious next step.

“She loves how all these big celebs are now doing OnlyFans, and thinks it could really boost her sex appeal,” we’re told. “Stars like Bella and Cardi B have taken away the stigma surrounding it. Gemma has been thinking up some really creative ideas for the kind of content she wants to put on there, and she just thinks she’d be a positive role model for bigger girls who aren’t afraid to show off their curves.”

Megan, Kerry, Lauren, et al: you might as well give up now.
