Gemma Atkinson's unusual physical imperfection exposed as she shows off Strictly injuries

She's being mocked by her colleagues!

Gemma Atkinson is a beautiful girl, but she’s admitted to there being something unusual about her physicality.

Speaking on her radio show with Key 103 in Manchester, the 32-year-old opened up about the toll the eight-hours-a-day training for Strictly is taking on her.

The former Emmerdale star revealed to co-hosts Matt and Mike that she has already suffered cuts and bruises to her tootsies.

But they were more interested in discussing something else about her unique feet - long toes - which they compared to Frodo from Lord of the Rings.

The big teases then asked her dancing partner Aljaz Skorjanec, who had popped into the studio, if he had seen her long ones.

As he confirmed that he had, Gemma chimed in: “They hate my feet, Aljaz.

“They give me grief because my big toe is one of my smallest toes on my feet and the rest are long.”

Perhaps he was being a gentleman – take note, Matt and Mike! – but the Strictly pro claimed not to have spotted that.

Laughing, he said: “I didn’t notice that so I’m going to definitely have a look.”

They give me grief because my big toe is one of my smallest toes on my feet and the rest are long.

Gemma's toes aren't taking the ribbing lying down though, and have got to work proving just how useful being long can be.
