isn’t afraid to shower herself with love, especially on her birthday.
, and celebrated by slipping into a purple swimming costume, soaking up the rays, and comparing herself to Jesus.
Taking to Instagram with a photo of her leaning against a door in her villa rocking the lilac cossie, the star gave herself a big old pat on the back and shout-wrote: ‘HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.’
Maybe Gemma got into yoga on the Indian Ocean trip, as she began the post with, ’43 TODAY NAMASTE 🧘♀️’.
The star said she had, ‘no regrets,’ before launching into a heartfelt paragraph about how far she’s come – all the way from a stable, of course.
‘Come to the Maldives to reconnect with nature and ground myself for the year ahead and to continue my soul purpose,’ she said.
‘Thank you to all the rejection, the no’s, the you’re not good enough’s, or people looking down their nose at me because I was a reality star,’ Gemma continued.
‘We all start somewhere and I’m proud to be a reality star!’ she added, before making the humblest of humble comparisons.
‘Jesus was born in a stable and look what he did!!!!,’ she pointed out.
Chatting to haters who thought she wouldn’t make it out the, er, stable, Gemma said: ‘Your the ones who paid for my Maldives trip !!! X cause it made me stronger more determined and more focused.’
Gemma’s disciples descended to wish her well on this special day, as Claire Sweeney wrote: ‘Happy birthday darling xxxx.’
Besties Jedward commented: ‘Gemma our heart and family you bring so much joy and love to us! Surrounding you with love and hugs on this wonderful day your Birthday day! Happy Birthday.’
The star also posted some motivational words on a recent snap from her trip, as she posed in a pink and white swimming costume, wearing a cross necklace, and told fans: ‘Don’t become a clone be YOU and your own kind of beautiful. It’s not how you look it’s who you are.’
She ended the post, again, with the customary Hindu greeting.
This comes around a year after , and had a ‘breathtaking experience’.
‘I am in the church in Bethlehem, I’ve got tears rolling down my face,’ she said to the camera while in the Church of the Nativity.
‘This is the most breathtaking, unreal experience of my life. The feeling here, you cannot describe it. It is just overwhelming with emotion. I hope everyone gets to experience this once in their life.’
She continued: ‘The feeling of this was like nothing I’ve ever felt before, I can’t even describe what I felt in that moment, I was totally blown away.’
More recently, when a social media video showed her dog Blu eating off a plate in a restaurant.
Controversially, Blu stood on a chair next to the former Towie star as he gobbled up a plate of chopped sausages and scrambled egg.
‘He only eats at the table and loves eggs!’ Gemma announced in an Instagram video, stroking the dog.
She wrote: ‘The LOVE for dogs 🐩 in Hampstead is next level the joy and happiness they bring to our lives 🐶 why doesn’t everywhere become more doggie friendly this would be fabulous ✌🏻.’
But fans didn’t play ball, and instead commented with a load of disgusted comments from followers shocked at the pooch’s behaviour.
That one backfired, Jesus.
