'I prefer a bath to clubbing!' QHi Gemma! How's the new business going? A It's so busy, it's unbelievable! The business is manic morning, noon and night - I'm extremely lucky. Q A What does a typical working day consist of? I wake up at about 6am, I often go to the factory, and work on my collection. I have loads of people helping me work on samples but, ultimately, I'm in control of everything. I work very hard behind the scenes, which I think is unusual for a celebrity collection.

At the end of the day, if someone's embarrassed of your size, then it's never going to work.

But there's much more to the 32-year-old TOWIE star than hair extensions, false eyelashes, and glitzy dresses - although the latter is fast becoming her area of expertise. In fact, you're more likely to find the beautiful bombshell soaking in the tub, meditating and being at one with nature than clubbing at Sugar Hut. Finding all this hard to believe? Read on, as we quiz Gemma on everything from her future ambitions to feminism to what she really thinks of TOWIE's Arg...
