She's known for her love of false eyelashes and bright lipgloss so The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins cut an almost unrecognisable figure as she stepped out make-up free on Thursday.

The curvy reality star, who's usually a fan of attention-grabbing colours and sparkles, seemed to be in a bit of a hurry as she didn't even have time to pop into a pasty shop as she was spotted sprinting past, covering up her bare face.

Gemma was recently humiliated by James Argent after it emerged that he had dumped her by text message, but rekindled the flame with former boyfriend Rami soon afterwards.

While head-to-toe black can be slimming, the 31-year-old TV star looked washed out as she dashed into the post office clutching a letter and her bank card.

Gemma matched a pair of skin-tight black leggings with a black T-shirt and covered herself up with a huge, Russian-style, black coat.

The star, who is usually plastered in make-up went completely fresh-faced for her outing, presenting a very different face to the world than she does on TOWIE.

The Essex-born star, who usually takes pride in her luscious, long hair scraped her blonde locks back into a messy ponytail.

The only hint of the old Gemma Collins was a pair of neon pink trainers that she added to break up the black ensemble.

As soon as the clothes designer realised that she'd been spotted, she immediately wrapped her coat around her face, clearly ashamed to be seen out without her usual slap.

On Wednesday night's show, the outspoken star broke down in tears after coming face to face with ex-boyfriend, Arg.

The busty blonde couldn't contain her emotions as the club singer popped by her house to pick up his Playstation.

Despite ending the meeting on good terms, Gemma still seemed cut up about the way the couple's relationship had ended.
