Gemma now says she’s cured her condition – and plans to start trying for a family in September.

“When I went through with all the injections, the IVf and all of that, I just felt I really need to be in my best space possible to conceive this child.

“I have been suffering with PCOS since I was 28 years old. That’s when I really started to gain weight in my life.

“Since then I’ve suffered bullying and abuse – clothing brands not wanting to work with me and being made to feel an outcast, a piece of dog poop.

“The fact I was made to feel like a proper underdog in my life because I didn’t have that perfect body is awful.

“I’m in the spotlight, so it’s more heightened for me, but If anyone feels like that, you don’t need to feel like that.

“You’re not invisible.”

Gemma and her fiance Rami first dated in 2011, enjoying an on/ off romance for three years before splitting in 2014.

They got engaged in 2013 when he proposed by hiding a diamond ring in a Christmas pudding.

They briefly reconnected in 2017, but Gemma was back with James Argent soon after. However, she called time on that rocky relationship for good in 2019.

The following year Gemma and Rami started secretly dating – and got engaged on their lavish holiday to the Maldives in February.

The pair are getting married in 2026 – but Gemma hopes of having a child before then.

She’s struggled to conceive with Rami because of her condition, but her diet guru Steve Bennett has helped cure her.

Steve, who has released a new book called The Fibre First diet, transformed her lifestyle and helped her drop three dress sizes in eight weeks.

What is PCOS?

POLYCYSTIC ovary syndrome affects one in five women and has an impact on how ovaries function – meaning sufferers can struggle to release an egg to be fertilised making it often extremely difficult to fall pregnant.

For many, the only hint of PCOS is irregular periods, while in more severe cases sufferers can be left with embarrassing hair growth on their faces, chest, back and backside.

The condition affects how a woman’s ovaries function.

It occurs when the sacs the ovaries sit in are unable to release an egg, which means ovulation doesn’t happen.

Medics don’t yet know what causes polycystic ovary syndrome, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Having polycystic ovaries also increases a woman’s chance of developing type 2 diabetes, depression, high blood pressure and high cholesterol and sleep apnoea later in life, the NHS warned.

Having irregular periods can also increase a woman’s risk of developing womb cancer.

“I’ve only just had this education or been more interested in it since January 2024,” said Gemma.

“I’ve been doing this under the radar, but this is my year of health. I want a long life and certainly because I’m starting my fertility journey.”

Steve said: “Normally every diet relies on you giving something up. That’s why it never works.

“This is about adding lots and not cutting anything out of the diet.

“This is stepping into a new era where as long as you put the fibre first, other things are back on the menu that probably weren’t on the menu before.”
