Gemma Collins has just proved she’s been the ultimate diva since day one, thanks to her latest throwback snaps.
The GC posted photos of herself as a teenager posing in a swimsuit on Instagram and we must say, we were getting hints of the meme queen she would eventually become even then.
The 38-year-old looked cool and carefree on a boat as she threw out some poses that we want to replicate ourselves for the ‘gram.
She revealed in the lengthy caption that she was just a ‘happy teenager’ back then and didn’t face any of the social media ‘panic’ the younger generation deal with now.
‘Spending the evening looking at old pics. I never grew up body conscious it wasn’t a thing when I was younger I was just young free and me,’ Gemma wrote.
‘Yeah I look good but in an innocent way. There was no panic ….this pic was NOT taken to fit in with a wall to make it Instagram worthy.’
The Towie star, who recently refused to open her own door, went on to urge young people not to be fooled by the facade of social media.
‘Instagram is way too exposed now for young members who are on here. They do have pressure and it’s just so nice to look back on this picture and not have had any of that pressure growing up,’ she said.
‘I was just a happy teenager with no body hang ups or pressure. I think it’s so important for our younger generation to be body confident and free.
‘I just want to say to the younger ones on insta be YOU and don’t worry about what you see on insta be young be happy and free.’
