Blonde, bubbly and ballsy, Gemma Collins has had fans of The Only Way Is Essex glued to their TVs since her arrival in series two. Her larger-than-life personality makes people cry with laughter as she haphazardly navigates through one romantic crisis after another. Gemma tries hard when it comes to finding 'Mr Right' - baking love pies and sexy texting - yet it never seems to work out. But does she care? Of course she doesn't. She always has the upper hand, leaving men quaking in their boots and women looking on in admiration. But finding her confidence has been a long and heartbreaking journey for Gemma. Inside, she opens up about the life events she endured before finding fame and feeling comfortable in her own skin. From breaking up with the love of her life and miscarrying a baby, to a drastic weight gain and depression; life for a real Essex girl is far from just an endless cycle of spray tans and vajazzles. Basically ...is the touching yet riotously funny story of how a young girl with a big heart finally found what she'd been looking for. Herself.
