Gemma shared the image of the cover on her Instagram account, telling her followers, "I shot this back in October and keeping it quiet has been a nightmare because I've been so excited."

I would love marriage and I would love kids, but not until I’m in a place where I’m ready for them.

Speaking to the magazine, Gemma admitted she's currently single... "No, I’m not dating anyone at the moment. I wish I was."

She then added: “I’d much rather be on my own and be happy than be in the wrong situation with the wrong person.

The star also admitted she would love to get married and have kids, but only when she's definitely ready for them.

Gemma then went on to explain that she often sees men as friends rather than relationship material...

“My friends give me grief because I friend-zone everybody, unintentionally. Like, if a guy is messaging me, I’ll go, 'Hiya, dude!' or 'Hiya, mate!'"

She went on to speculate that maybe that means she's not ready for a relationship just yet.

She recently admitted to Lorraine that she'd actually put weight on while training for Strictly.

“I've put on nearly a stone,” Gemma admitted. “It's because Aljaz keeps bringing in doughnuts and chocolates. It's alright for him because he can get away with it!”

But Aljaz reassured Gemma that it’s “all muscles”.
