Gemma Collins has morphed into a Love Island bombshell thanks to her ongoing fitness transformation and a seriously glamorous makeover.

The former TOWIE icon was getting glam for a photo shoot for some of her new swimwear, and documented the day on her Instagram.

The 40-year-old took to her Instagram Story to show what she was getting up to, and revealed her beach babe transformation, complete with glamorous bronzed makeup and bouncy blonde curls in her hair.

She was clearly feeling the look, as she filmed herself running her manicured coral nails through her tresses, which cascaded around her slimmed-down face in loose waves.

Gemma had a sultry eyeshadow look of browns and bronzes, while her eyebrows were sculpted and arched high above her peepers.

Her lips were painted a soft pink colour, while she had a similar colour of blush dusted on her cheeks.

She posed with hair expert Joel Maguire, writing: "Love you. Love my hair."

It wasn't just Gemma getting in on the action though, as her beloved mum Joan Collins was in the makeup chair too.

"Joel is working on the models today for the shoot," Gemma said, adding: "Mum is ready for her big moment."

Reality starlet Gemma has been working hard on her fitness and health in recent months, and regularly shares updates with fans.

She's already shed three stone, and despite dubbing herself the "fitness queen", Gemma did admit that she regretted promoting diet injections when she was in a "desperate place to lose weight".

And while Gemma is a natural when it comes to all things showbiz, she confessed she was thinking of breaking into a new industry.

She said on her podcast: "I am gonna be Dora the Explorer – I mean, get me to the National History Museum ASAP."

The beauty added: "I want to read up on all the artefacts and who knows, I could retire from television and entertainment, and I could rock up at schools.

“Maybe I could teach kids about dinosaurs?

“I would absolutely love go digging for bones and fossils right now – but it’s raining.”

She went on: “I can remember being in Dubai and seeing these huge bones in the sand when I was doing a safari trip in the desert.

“And I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what are they?’ I was more interested in the bones than being on the safari trip.

“There I was focusing on he bones – maybe this is my new vocation in life.

“A dinosaur definitely needs to be named after me as well.”
