BBC Strictly Come Dancing star shares wedding plans

Strictly Come Dancing star Gemma Atkinson has revealed her wedding plans after she got engaged to Gorka Marquez on Valentine’s Day last year. The Hollyoaks actress met the professional dancer while they were both on the show in 2017 when she was a finalist.

Now Gemma has revealed that she and Gorka are planning a small wedding abroad. Speaking on Vicky Pattison’s podcast The Secret To, she said: “We’ve said we would prefer to try for another baby rather than have a big, fancy wedding.

“There are people who will spend £50k on a wedding and you think, ‘Oh my God'”. She added: “Twice we thought about going to the registry office and just doing it and then having a big party.”

Speaking about the show, Gemma added: “My favorite reality show was Strictly because I met Gorka on there. Strictly was the job that changed my whole life. As a result of that show I have my fiancé and little girl.”

She also revealed the pair had not kept their relationship a secret and even booked hotel rooms together while they were on tour: “It wasn’t secret on the tour,” Gemma said.

“All the cast knew because we were staying in the same hotels. We used to just book the same room. It was so nice. You are very well looked after — cars to and from the studio. You get your schedule and your call time .

“Everything is done for you and it is easy. We said, ‘This isn’t real life at all. This is a bubble we are very privileged to be in. Once this ends, you live in London and I live in Manchester’ .

“We booked a holiday to Tenerife. We were together all day every day for three weeks. They always say going on holiday with someone is a good test. We went — and we loved it.”
