Gemma Collins shuns Essex diva ways as she stuffs bags into £295 Nissan Micra

Gemma Collins looked worlds away from her self-professed status as the greatest diva in Essex as she was papped loading bags into her 20-year-old Nissan Micra.

The former TOWIE star recently traded in her BMW convertible for the compact silver wagon – which came with a bargainous price tag of £295.

Gemma put her new wheels to good use this week as she filled the boot with carrier bags, flowers and gifts after celebrating the ninth anniversary of her Brentwood store.

Despite the party atmosphere in Gemma's plus-sized boutique, the reality star looked noticeably glum as she made her exit.

Dressed in a cut-out leopard print top, spray-on skinny jeans and black flip-flops, Gemma, 38, failed to crack a smile as she headed out to her new car.

The Diva Forever star, who reportedly broke up with boyfriend James 'Arg' Argent last month, was helped by a friend as she she struggled to carry her huge amount of presents.

Gemma had more bad news last month when she accidentally reversed her flashy BMW into a flower pot causing the window to smash.

The GC had insisted her mishap had nothing to do with her bad driving and put it down to the 'full moon'.

Sharing pictures of the aftermath to Instagram , Gemma wrote: "The FULL MOON is definitely affecting me already.

"I went from meditation, sunflowers to smashing the glass on my car to reversing into a huge plant pot #fullmoonenergy #fullmoon …. what a day."

Since then Gemma has been riding around in her much more modest Nissan.

While the new car might seem out of place with Gemma's usual jaunts abroad, designer clothing and slap up meals, she recently opened up about her modest start in life.

Speaking on her BBC Sounds podcast, Gemma told listeners she was so poor growing up that she had no idea what a toaster was because her parents couldn't afford one.

The GC said that she and her brother had to toast bread on forks over the fire instead.
