Millionaire Gemma Collins reveals she’s been forced to ‘cut back’ and switch off heating | The Sun

MILLIONAIRE Gemma Collins has revealed that she's been forced to "cut back" and switch off her heating amid the cost-of-living crisis.

The former Towie star – who splashed out on a £1.3m Essex mansion last year – admitted she's become "mindful" about the rising cost of living and has taken steps to reduce her spending.

"The cost of living crisis, yes I have the news on, I try not to but I said I'm going to spend October and November trying to make sensible cutbacks because if you look after the pennies they look after you," the 41-year-old Essex babe said on her GC podcast.

"I have done something with every meal time, I go into my cupboards and make some serious cutbacks like everyone else.

"It is scary, mortgages are going up, electrics going up.

"I'm telling everyone not to put the heating on in my house.

"I'm making sure every lights are off, I normally have every TV switched on in the room- not necessarily watching something, but I'd have TV on in one room, music on in the other, but I've really been mindful to cut back on all of that."

The star admitted that she's making meals from leftovers in her fridge to reduce her food shopping each week.

She explained that she's been growing her own fruit and veg to stop her "wasting money".

"My dad came round and told me to cut it off at the plug – I've been really mindful to cut back on electricity," Gemma continued.

"I told Rami if he leaves the light on, it's just not good.

"I said 'Ram, we need to be serious, we've got to be saving energy'.

"I'm becoming so far removed from the GC, I'm becoming mindful about electricity, I'm like an eco-warrior – I'm even growing vegetables."

Gemma snapped up the glass-fronted, open plan home last year and it's no surprise that it's rather costly to keep warm.

After boosting her earnings in lockdown thanks to a lucrative clothing brand and solo reality TV series.

Her house boasts high ceilings supported by wooden beams, a spectacular spiral light feature, and dozens of windows including floor to ceiling glass windows that let in plenty of light.

On one side of the huge open plan living room lies two grey velvet sofas and a blue velvet armchair, glass coffee tables, and a glossy white cabinet with potted pants.

In the middle of the room, opposite wide patio doors, is a modern pine dining table that can seat up to ten people, with benches on either side instead of chairs.

The property also boasts plenty of outdoor space, where the GC has shared clips of her exercising.
