Gemma Collins speaks out about Jamelia’s plus size comments


Gemma Collins has spoken out against Jamelia due to the comments she made recently on Loose Women.

Jamelia believes that plus size women shouldn't be able to buy clothes on the High Street if they are an unhealthy weight.

She said: "I don't believe stores should stock clothes below or above a certain weight. They should be made to feel uncomfortable when they go in and can't find a size."

"It shouldn't be normalised in High Street stores. They should have specialist shops," she said.

Gemma told The Sun: "You can't segregate people who are overweight. Some women really struggle with their weight."

She continued by saying: "Jamelia is slim. She doesn't know what it feels like to be bigger and not be able to go shopping. Are bigger people not meant to be able to get clothes? It's ridiculous."

The TOWIE star has her own plus size clothing range. 

Jamelia has since apologised for upsetting anyone but also defended her statement by saying: "But I do stand by what I said, I am a real women with real opinions. I’m not here to play some villain. It’s not that, I get paid to voice my opinion. Occasionally you offend people.
