Gemma Collins is known for alter ego The GC, but now the reality star has revealed that she plans on retiring that side of her and instead wants to focus her work elsewhere.

The television personality, who recently recorded a Christmas single with Darren Day, has teased that fans will get to see a different version of her in the new year.

Speaking to The Sun, the 39 year old said: "People are going to see a huge change in me next year, I'm turning 40 and the people that inspire me to do incredible humanitarian work.

The bubbly blonde went on to reveal that she has been inspired by Princess Diana and plans to take her work in a similar direction to the late royal.

"Princess Diana has been in the media a lot, and you look at her when she walked through the landmines and stuff and she's such an incredible woman.

"This is where I want to take my work now, I've got everything I want in life, I don't need anything more.

"I am so happy with where I am in my life and it's time for me to work my magic with other projects," she continued.

Gemma also explained that as a result of the new work she intends to do, her alter ego The GC may have to take a backseat.

"The GC might have to be put on ice for a little bit, we might have to freeze her for a bit.

"When I turn 40 I want people to think more of Gemma and more of my humanitarian work and things I am passionate about in life."

Teasing the next chapter of her life, the former TOWIE star, who shared her beauty secret recently, concluded: "Through my life and career I've grown as a person, there's a lot more to me now than just being The GC and I am really excited for everyone to see what I am going to be doing in 2021."
