“Lots of attention. The only thing she bites is food to shovel in her face,” Gemma read aloud on her Channel 4 documentary Gemma Collins: Self-Harm & Me.

He looked shocked as he said: “I heard he cut his arm and the gravy came out.”

Another comment read: “You hate woman, this is all a lie.”

“This stupid cow will say anything to sell the story.”

Gemma continued reading: “Shut up Piggy, no one cares about you or your family, so shut up and disappear.”

But Brave Jemma insisted: “It doesn’t bother me.”

The 41-year-old has kept her self-harm secret for so long because she feared she would be “locked up forever” in a “mental shelter”.

Gemma explained that she would wear long sleeves to hide marks on her arms so that teachers and friends would never know.

The TV star said: “I hid it well. I didn’t do it every day or every week – it happened every two months.

“But when I did that I knew how to hide it. When I felt the pressure I just cut myself off and felt fine again. It was always on my arm and I felt like The tension is over.

“But I never understood why I did that. People don’t hurt themselves because they want to kill themselves. It’s really complicated.”

“When I was growing up, you didn’t talk about your problems or broadcast your dirty laundry to the public,” he continued.

“So when I started hurting myself, I couldn’t tell anyone because I thought I was going to shut up, not see my family or friends, and I was going to be in the shelter for the rest of my life.”

She said she never talked about self-harm because she was “scared.”

“I was getting very emotional and I couldn’t cope,” Jemma was heard saying. “It’s something I’ve buried for 20 years.”

In another scene, while talking to his mother John, the former Twi star admitted: “It’s not like a normal conversation you can have with someone.

“I never told anyone because it was embarrassing, I was scared. I wish I had the courage to ask for help.

“I could have saved myself a lot of pain.”
