Gemma is gearing up for the Blenheim Palace 10k on 6 October, which will be raising cash for the British Heart Foundation

She has a close relationship with the charity after her father died from heart disease at the age of 52.

"It’s a personal link for me. If I can support any charity, it would be them," she told the Daily Star.

Gemma's toned shape is also thanks to her high-protein diet, which she couples with working out six times a week.

She recently told of how she was unhappy with her body after gaining two dress sizes six years ago.

"I went up to a size 12-14 and was about 10st, which is lighter than I am now, but it was fat rather than muscle," she told Closer magazine

"A size 12-14 isn’t big, but it was more about how I felt. I hated my legs, and I felt down about how I looked."
