Recently, however, Gemma revealed the heart-breaking motivation behind her diet and exercise routine.

During an Instagram 'Ask me anything', which she took part in while on her exercise bike, one of her fans asked: "What motivates and helps keep you motivated every day?"

The Steph's Packed Lunch star confessed her late father's ill health plays a big part.

"Knowing that in picking good food and movement is all beneficial to my health. My dad passed away at 52 from heart disease so it kinda clicked that I need to be mentally and physically as healthy as can be, plus I love the feeling exercise gives me which helps," Gemma wrote.
