The 40-year-old reality star - who was in an on-off relationship with The Only Way Is Essex co-star James ‘Arg’ Argent between 2012 and 2020 - admitted on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories she had hoped to profit by releasing the X-rated video one day.
Collins said: "Well course, I might go skint one day, and I’ve gotta do a Kim K. Do you know what? Sex sells.
"It’s probably about 20 minutes long, but we’ve all done it with our partners, you know. I’m normal.
"I’d like to set up a pay-to-view line where they ring in, I take £1.50 on the phone call and then £3 or a fiver to watch the thing, so I’d be cashing in myself but I don’t know if that’s possible."
But when Morgan asked her if every part of her life was for sale she appeared to change her mind.
She said: "I’m not prepared to do it. I’d rather go and work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year before I’d have to resort to that.
"I’m gonna go home and delete it after you’ve given me the riot act about it."
The TOWIE star broke down in tears as she discussed the abuse she receives from strangers about her weight - not just from online trolls, but in the street.
Collins revealed: “It was so embarrassing once, I was taking my mum for lunch, a van pulled up and they started abusing me. It wasn’t for me, I felt so hurt that that happened in front of my mum. ‘You fat C***. You know, fat cow... Look at you stuffing your face.’
“Again, I’m used to it but I didn’t want my mum to hear it.”
Piers Morgan's Life Stories airs on Thursday 11th February at 9pm on ITV.
