Gemma Collins says she was forced to break her diet over the stress of the new lockdown announcement.
The former TOWIE star, 39, has been thrilling fans with her weight loss lately, but she admitted that the stress of changes amid the coronavirus pandemic had sent her racing to McDonald’s.
London and Essex are being moved from Tier 1 to Tier 2 in the Government’s new lockdown plan.
It means that from midnight on Friday, mixing with other households or people outside your support bubble will be banned.
After the news was announced, Gemma seemingly jumped into the car and headed straight for her local Maccys drive-thru to pick up some nuggets and chips.
Taking to her Instagram story, she said: “Right guys, I’ve not been on the Gram much lately personally but I’ve just had to take to the Gram because with the stress of the new announcement I’ve just had to get McDonald’s.
“Me and Sid are in shock, ain’t we Sid?
“So it’s drove me to have chicken nuggets and chips, panic eating!
“Guys I hope you’re all having a good day, I thought I’d share how I’m feeling with you – better to share it!
“And I love you all and let’s just do what we need to be doing and just hopefully these chicken nuggets will get me over the shock.”
Under the new rules, people in London and Essex won’t be able to meet with anyone outside their household or support bubbles either at home or in a public setting.
The rule of six still applies outdoors, but only to people in the same household or bubble.
Pubs and restaurants will remain open, with the 10pm curfew still in place.
Hopefully, Gemma’s treat won’t set her back too far.
Her followers have been super impressed lately as she’s lost three stone by switching up her lifestyle.
She’s also recently said she’s planning on having a boob lift to “age reverse” herself before turning 40.
She told The Sun : “I would like a boob uplift, don’t get me wrong. You know, the world is my oyster. And J-Lo, she’s my inspiration. She’s absolutely incredible.
“So, if J-Lo can do it, then the GC can do it. The older I get honey, the better I become. I like the thought of turning 40 because I’m more mentally aware now, I’ve experienced so much more and I’ve got life experience.”
She added: “I’ve had the knocks but I’ve had the comebacks. Turning 40 is when I’m really going to do some damage.”
The blonde beauty says she’s wanted to have a boob job for a while in a bid to stop her breasts from sagging.
