So imagine our surprise when she shared a throwback snap of herself as a teenager looking completely unrecognisable!
The adorable image sees the TOWIE star dressed as a fairy, sporting a frilly white tutu, fairy wings, sparkling star wand and a matching tiara, with an angelic smile plastered across her face.
Having a great time reminiscing about her fairy days, Gemma captioned the youthful snap: ‘Happy Friday’.
Fans of The GC couldn’t believe their eyes, with many commenting on how cute Gemma looks.
Gemma’s sweet throwback comes after she hit out at bodyshamers who mocked her figure after topless photos of herself getting a massage on holiday in Tenerife emerged earlier this month.
‘I’m not ashamed of my body, I’m really proud of it’, the 37-year-old told The Sun.
Adding that she’s a total natural babe, the Essex star added: ‘I’m not going to hide away. I’m really proud I’m 37 and I’ve never had one bit of cosmetic surgery done.
She added: ‘I wasn’t devastated when I saw those snaps because that’s my body’, she said.
