The former Emmerdale actress continued to write about how training and eating the right kinds of foods has helped her feel amazing in herself, resulting in her having far more confidence and not caring what other people think of her. Gemma also revealed that the book will contain 80 recipes, as well as workout plans that readers can do either at home or at the gym. As well as sharing tips, Gemma's book will have an autobiographical angle too, which she said will be putting her side across about her life and career in the public eye. She finished off by telling people that her book will come out at the end of December, but that it is available to pre-order in the meantime.
