Towie's Gemma Collins says that society, rather than reality television, is to blame for young people getting plastic surgery.

Collins, who appears in the ITV2 reality show, says she has received abusive messages on social media because of her weight but has learned to shrug it off.

Gemma was speaking to Newsbeat's Maddii Lown.
