Flaunting her body in a swimsuit while cooling-off in a pool, Gemma Collins declared it was “Hot Girl Summer” last week.

Oozing confidence in the snap, Gemma, 40 – who has been sharing her new health and fitness kick with fans on social media in recent months with pictures of her newly toned figure – used the hashtags #justbeyou and #loveyourself in a defiant message to her fans.

And following her split from on/off beau James “Arg” Argent, 32, last year and cooling things with former fiancé Rami Hawash, 45 – who she was said to be casually dating again – insiders say the single star is planning a summer dating spree.

A source says, “Gemma’s feeling sexier than ever, which has sparked a newfound confidence that’s made her want to get back out there and find her Mr Right. After a lot of heartbreak, she’s finally in a place where she feels like she’s emotionally – and physically – ready to move on.

In this casual #ootd pic we can see that Gemma has opted for a large living-room/diner set up, with dining chairs – although they're more like thrones – swathed in the same fabric as the sofa.

“Pals have been setting her up on blind dates and she’s been contacted by matchmakers wanting to introduce her to potential matches, so with them as well as all the men messaging her inbox, she’s not short of options and can’t wait to be wined and dined again!”

Earlier this year, the Diva Forever star admitted she felt “suicidal” following the breakdown of her nine-year relationship from Arg, who had previously cruelly branded her a “hippo” and a “fat f*ck” amid one of their splits.

And after embarking on a rigid exercise routine to tone-up following her 3st weight loss in 2019, pals say she is finally in a place where she feels “worthy” of her happily ever after.

The source adds, “While Gemma’s never wanted to be a size 8, losing some weight and toning up has made her feel so much better.

“She knows she deserves better and isn’t prepared to settle for anything less, so she’s hoping that her new confidence will help her find a man who truly loves and respects her for who she is and that, in turn, will ensure she finally gets the happiness she’s been wanting for so long.”
