Strictly’s Gorka Marquez exposes girlfriend Gemma Atkinson’s fear as they return from holiday

Naughty Gorka!

| Updated:

Strictly Come Dancing stars Gorka Marquez and Gemma Atkinson have just ended their very first holiday as a couple.

And it seems like pro dancer Gorka has learned something new about his soap star girlfriend!

The 27-year-old Spaniard posted a clip to Instagram Stories from their plane back to the UK, revealing Gemma’s not a fan of take off.

We imagine she’s not alone there…

Gorka’s clip showed Gemma, 33, with her eyes closed as she sat next to the window, and he wrote the caption: “[Gemma] scared of the take off.”

It seemed to amuse Gorka, who added a string of crying with laughter emojis.

Gemma then realised she was being filmed and started to laugh, suggesting she wasn’t too annoyed with her boyfriend filming her fear of take offs.

Again, Gem, you are SO not alone there.

And let’s hope Gorka comforted her after he put down the camera!

Before heading to the airport, the pair enjoyed a workout together (obviously!) and Gemma posted a super cute pic to Instagram showing them cuddling on the beach.

She wrote on Insta: “From sharing post rehearsal pancakes on a wet day in London to an amazing holiday in the Canaries. What a fun week we’ve had!”

Gorka, meanwhile, said: “Lovely break away with Gemma. Can’t wait for the next one! Now back to LDN.”

Gemma and Gorka were first linked last year, when reports surfaced they’d grown close on the last series of Strictly Come Dancing.

They always played down any romance, insisting they were just good pals, but clearly, somewhere on the way, the friendship blossomed into something more.

And on Valentine’s Day, they confirmed what fans had long suspected: they’re dating!

They confirmed their status by sharing matching pictures to Instagram showing them cuddling up on the beach. Aww.

Since then, the floodgates have opened and we’ve had loads of snaps of the pair together!

On Friday, cheeky Gemma shared a clip to Instagram Stories showing her buff beau sunbathing on the beach during their first holiday together.

And she really liked what she saw!

Panning the camera up and down an oblivious Gorka’s tanned body, she quipped: “Had worse views!”

She added a crying with laughter emoji.

While back home in the UK we’ve had wind, rain and pretty dismal weather, lucky Gemma and Gorka have been basking in the sunshine together as they wind down abroad after the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour 2018.

Gorka shared a cute picture to Instagram Stories last week showing him and Gemma holding hands as they lay next to each other on beach sunbeds.

As they both beamed for the camera, he added the caption: “MOOD FRIDAY.”

Well, we’d be happy too if we were on hols!

They also shared pics of themselves at the gym, toasting each other with a cocktail, just chilling out and a sweet video of Gorka planting a kiss on his girlfriend’s cheek.

Fans are absolutely loving the fact they’re an item.

One wrote on Instagram: “Loving you guys so much , not only did @glouiseatkinson fall in love with dancing but she also fell in love with @gorka_marquez and now you two can dance forever!!”

Another said: “Proper crushing on this relationship.”

A third added: “Gorgeous couple, may you have a long loving relationship.”

Meanwhile, Gemma and Gorka weren’t the only Strictly romance making headlines last week.

Fellow pro dancer Giovanni Pernice used Valentine’s Day to confirm he’s dating ex-TOWIE star Jessica Wright, after they were reportedly introduced by her brother, Mark, who previously competed on Strictly.

So much love in the air!
