The 40-year-old star wants to set an example after learning that her BBC podcast is most listened to by people aged between 16 and 28, Gemma and is determined to follow in the footsteps of Sir David Attenborough by saving the animals.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “If these youngsters are looking at me, I need to do the right thing by them and spread the right word and the right message. There’s more to life than a naked Instagram selfie.”
Gemma plans to turn her attention to “working as a humanitarian” and touring Africa and India, as well as promoting animal welfare and the conservation of endangered species.
The outspoken star – who celebrated her 40th birthday on Sunday (31.01.21) – claimed material things no longer “fulfil” her as she grows older.
She explained: “I don’t need any more designer handbags or shoes. I’ve just really grown as a person. I think you get to a certain stage in your life, you’ve earned the money. In the end, you need to look a bit deeper.”
Meanwhile, Gemma previously revealed she wants to use hypnosis to find out more about witchcraft.
She said: “I really want to do life regression at 40 years old. I discovered a programme called ‘A Discovery of Witches’. It’s about a coven of witches and they time travel.
“When I watch it, it feels like I’ve lived it, seen it and been there and done it before.
“When I see the way that show is filmed, the time period, even like the costumes and the set, I feel like I was once living in them times. It would be really interesting to go back and see that.”
