Gemma was accompanied by a friend who drove through the fast food restaurant in a chic white Range Rover.

The former TOWIE star cut a casual figure in a white sweater and sported her blonde locks in a low ponytail.

It comes after Gemma last week urged her fans to lose weight naturally as her ex-boyfriend James Argent, 33, prepares for a ‘life-saving’ stomach surgery.

She insisted that diet and exercise are the way to go about weight loss, while confessing regrets promoting weight-loss spikes in the past.

He said at a recent GMB gig, ‘They have [doctors] basically speaking, the size I am at the moment can be fatal. If I caught Covid I could be a goner. ‘
