Seann Walsh and Katya Jones on It Takes Two

Katya Jones’ ‘row with Gemma Atkinson over Gorka Marquez flirting’

Claims Strictly pro found himself caught in the middle of two beauties

| Updated:

Gemma Atkinson was reportedly left furious after Strictly Come Dancing’s Katya Jones allegedly flirted with her fella Gorka Marquez.

The Sun claims Katya, 29, took a shine to her fellow pro dancer during the course of the show’s Live Tour earlier this year.

According to the newspaper report, Gorka, 28, and Gemma, 34, started seeing each other one the series of arena events had ended.

And it is also claimed Katya’s husband Neil had no knowledge of how his wife reportedly admired the Spanish hunk, despite suggestions of backstage gossip spreading among Strictly’s pros.

An unnamed source is quoted by the tabloid as saying plenty of jealously flared up behind the scenes.

They added: “It is safe to say there was no love lost between Gemma and Katya.”

Additionally, the anonymous insider hints performers grow closer after spending so much time together socially while travelling.

They are reported as having said: “Katya thoroughly enjoyed flirting with him and Gorka loves female attention – he obviously knew that Gemma fancied him.

“With Katya on the scene as well, Gorka found himself caught in the middle of two stunning women vying for his attention.”

Last year’s finalist Gemma was partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec for the tour while Gorka danced with Alexandra Burke, another star who made it to the last stage of the BBC One competition.

Katya, whose stint on the series this year will forever be remembered for her snogging scandal with comedian Seann Walsh, won last year’s Glitterball trophy alongside actor Joe McFadden.

It is believed neither she nor Neil will be part of the 2019 live production loop of the UK.
