Gemma Collins buys enormous £22,000 wooden elephant sculpture for her garden

Gemma Collins has revealed the latest addition to her giant garden is an equally enormous wooden sculpture of an elephant. 

The reality star, 40, took to Instagram to show off her latest garden feature which had just been delivered, costing a whopping £22,000 which goes to charity. 

She told her followers: ‘Always give to the animals. I’m so happy to welcome my beautiful MATRIARCH ELEPHANT, her eyes are just stunning and magical. 

‘PLEASE be kind to animals @coexistence.story she is so beautiful and I’m so happy to have her in my garden amongst the topiary trees #coexistence #elephantfamily.’

The matriarch elephant sculpture weighs an enormous 300kg and funds raised by CoExistence through sales of them go to grass-roots organisations across India that allow people and wildlife to live together more peacefully.

The sculptures come in four sizes, with the baby elephant, a 100kg calf, starting at £6,000, while the largest will set you back £30,000 and every single one is unique.

Since moving into her Essex mansion earlier in the year, Gemma has been working hard to transform the house and garden to her tastes. 

Despite struggling to water the trees at the bottom of her garden, Gemma has invested in ever-more shrubbery for the property as well as a lavish swimming pool. 

Gemma also had her own Ibiza-style cabana installed in the back yard for sunnier days, and made sure to keep her followers updated on the progress. 

Given the generous star has dropped such a hefty sum to charity for her own wooden elephant, we wouldn’t be surprised if she completes the family and gets a few more to add to the herd at a later date, too.
