9780091951627: Basically...: My Life as a Real Essex Girl

An hilarious yet touching autobiography from Towie's brightest star Gemma Collins.
     Blonde, bubbly and ballsy, Gemma Collins stands out from the cast of hit TV series The Only Way is Essex in more ways than one. Her larger-than-life personality has had the nation crying with laughter as she has haphazardly navigated through one romantic crisis to another on screen. She tries hard when it comes to finding 'The One' -- baking love pies and sexy texting -- yet it never seems to work out. But does she care? Of course she doesn't.

Gemma always has the upper hand, leaving men quaking in their boots and women looking on in admiration. Fiercely independent and comfortable in her own skin, Gemma has an army of female and male fans alike. But, finding her confidence has been a long and heartbreaking journey for Gemma. And now in her very own autobiography she opens up about the life events she has endured before finding fame and learning to love herself. From being dumped after miscarrying a child to an ongoing battle with her weight and depression, life in Essex hasn't always been real. Indiscretion isn't her middle name, however, so expect to find out the secrets on all of her famous conquests, including Arg, Mick and Rickey, and what she really thinks of her perma-tanned co-stars.

This is the touching yet riotously funny story of how a young Essex girl with a big heart finally found what she'd always been looking for. Herself.
