In a new interview, the Celebrity Big Brother star said she has been working "a lot" while battling her mystery illness which she believes was a virus.

Speaking about her health, Gemma told New magazine: "I have been so ill I cannot tell you, my workload has been a lot, but I've had a virus.

"I've been really, really, really unwell. I literally had to film in Wales and I was very unwell.

"I called the doctor out and he said to me 'Look I'm going to give you medicine but I actually think this is a virus and it's not going to work.'"

The self-proclaimed diva was later placed on an IV drip and her fiancé Rami almost took her to hospital as she was close to "collapsing on the floor".

Collins originally began to feel ill at the beginning of August and had commitments that kept her working throughout her sickness.

Gemma said that "this time her body was having none of it" and revealed that she has "been on drips"

She added that she "wouldn't wish the illness on her worst enemy" but has had both Rami and her mum there to "look after her."
