GEMMA Collins stripped naked to pose in a bathtub today as she paid tribute to a killer whale.
The kindhearted ‘Only Way is Essex’ star returned to social media after a brief hiatus to show her support for animal rights group Peta.
Gemma, 42, posted the picture today to raise awareness of the sad death of a killer whale at a Miami aquarium.
In the picture, the reality star is completely nude, with one leg draped out of the bathtub.
The moving image is intended to illustrate the lack of space the whale would have had in captivity.
She wroteon the snapshot: “I partnered with @PETAUK on this campaign in 2020 – and this message is just as relevant today as it was then.”
“Over the weekend, Lolita, an orca at Miami Seaquarium, died after spending more than FIVE decades trapped in a concrete tank. How sad that her death was the only way to escape her captivity.”
“Let’s honor their memory by refusing to support marine parks where these amazing animals are captive for profit and urging all to do the same.”
“Those horrible places won’t close until people refuse to go there.”
Meanwhile, Gemma took to her Instagram Stories last week to reveal she was taking a three-week break from the platform.
She told her fans it was so she could have fun with it Vacation and have a quality, distraction-free time with her family.
GC wrote: “Guys it’s holiday time for the GC!”
“It’s time to be with my family and loved ones so I wish you all a wonderful experiencebreak.
“Enjoy every minute, create memories because trust me, winter will be here in no time.”
She added, “See you all in three weeks and wish you a great summer.”
Gemma’s split from her family comes after her mother Joan was rushed to the emergency room earlier this month.
The GC shared a picture of Joan, 67, with tubes out of her nose to help her breathe.
Gemma told her followers: “Such a scary moment when mum comes to. Thank you Queens Hospital Romford for all your dedication.”
In the photo, Gemma’s mother is seen with a smile on her face and tubes still sticking out of her nose.
Fans were delighted to learn that Gemma’s mother is on the mend and her co-star Chloe Sims posted a series of heart emojis.
