Gemma Atkinson reveals boyfriend Gorka Marquez won her heart with a 2am pizza after boozy Strictly party

The former Emmerdale star, 33, took to Instagram on Thursday where she admitted it didn't take a lot of effort from Gorka for her to start falling for him.

And she shared the couple's first ever drunken selfie together – taken after a boozy Strictly party last year.

In the snap, Gorka, 27, is seen covering his face with his hand while Gemma looks wide-eyed and lively.

She wrote: "#tb to mine and @gorka_marquez first night out together! Who’d have thought a tipsy taxi ride after the Strictly launch party would lead us to where we are now.

"I’m so glad that on that evening you asked for my phone number, and Im thankful you got me that much needed 2am pizza 😂 got me back to my hotel and handed me over to the girls safely and rang me in the morning checking Id made my train back to Manchester! (I hadn’t) 🙈🤢 but hey!


"It was fun, and it lead to our friendship which months later, lead to our partnership. The rest they say is history and I cannot wait to see what the future holds with you Gorks! ❤"

Gorka sparked engagement rumours after he gave a candid interview to Now magazine in April.

He said: "I would love to have my own family. I love kids. Hopefully one day I'll become a husband and a dad."

The Spanish dancer also revealed how he had never expected to fall for the actress, saying: "I never went into the show thinking I was going to find my partner. It happened after. You can't help who you fall in love with."


In a recent interview with The Sun, Gemma revealed it felt good to be out in the open about their relationship.

She told us: "It's nice to be able to say he's my boyfriend.

"We had that awkward stage where you're dating but you haven't had 'the conversation'.

"You never want to say to a guy after three coffees: 'So… what are we?'"
