Things are getting serious between Gemma Atkinson and her Strictly beau Gorka Marquez.

The Hits Radio DJ and professional dancer have taken the huge step of moving in together a year after they met on the BBC show.

Sharing the news with their Instagram followers, they both updated their Stories with a clip of them driving home.

“Sunday morning, on our way back to Manchester because we are…” started Gorka, before Gemma excitedly chipped in, “we’re going to be roomies!!!”

“We’re moving in together, yeah!!!” Gorka confirmed.

“Does this mean I am a Mancunian now?” the Spaniard then joked.

He then asked the former Emmerdale actress to teach him some local lingo and practised saying: “alright kid”.

Gorka, 28, will be moving into the home 34-year-old Gemma shares with her two beloved dogs, Norman and Ollie.

Their fans were quick to wish them well by commenting on an image of them sharing a pizza.

“Couples goal. You’re so perfect for each other,” wrote one.

“Wishing you both every happiness together,” said another.

“Congratulations on moving in together,” added a third, while a fourth wrote: “Happy moving in day guys!”

Gorka and Gemma got together last year when they both made it to the Strictly final dancing with Alexandra Burke and Aljaž Škorjanec respectively.

They bonded over their shared love of fitness and now regularly work out together.

Over the last year, they have been travelling up and down the country to see one another due to Gemma being based in Manchester for her work commitments, while Gorka lived in London.

Now they’ll be able to spend much more time together with Gorka moving in up North.

The big step in their relationship comes following reports that Gemma had a ‘row with Katya Jones over flirting with Gorka’ on the Strictly Live tour earlier.

A source told The Sun that “Gorka found himself caught in the middle of two stunning women vying for his attention.”

She’s one lucky lady as she’s previously revealed not only does Gorka have looks, charm and dance skills, he’s also talented in the kitchen.

“Gorka is way better with his food than me,” she told UP Fitness  earlier this year. “He is a great cook and cooks everything from fresh, which is good.”
