Strictly’s Gorka Marquez pokes fun at Gemma Atkinson with intimate pic of them in bed

Will he get into trouble for sharing the snap?!

| Updated:

They were coy about their relationship for months after meeting on the last series of Strictly but now loved-up Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez are regularly sharing pictures together on Instagram.

And last night the professional dancer even went as far as to post a picture of them in bed with his 159k followers.

Gorka, 27, shared the snap to poke fun at his girlfriend as she fell asleep after they started to watch a film – we’ve all been there, Gemma!

He captioned the selfie: “Shall we watch a movie Gorka? Yeah ok then…. 20 mins later @glouiseatkinson 4am starts are tough!”

The image quickly gained thousands of likes and hundreds of comments as the couple’s fans gushed over how cute it was – especially as one of Gemma’s dogs could also be seen sharing the bed with them!

Some agreed that they were just like the soap actress when it came to staying up to watch TV in the evenings after a busy day.

“This is so me,” one wrote. “Aww!! I’m guilty of this a lot!! You two together xx,” another said.

Others wondered if Gorka would get into trouble in the morning for sharing the intimate picture!

“Aww love this! So down to earth! Am sure @glouiseatkinson will kill u in the morning for posting though,” one wrote.

Another said: “Aww let her sleep…. Although she may seek revenge for posting this I’m not sure.”

Thankfully, it seems like Gemma was fine with the snap, as she left a funny comment underneath telling Gorka: “That’s what happens when you choose the film!”

It’s no wonder Gemma, 33, is so tired, as the actress has been hitting the gym a lot recently to prepare for a fitness photoshoot.

She’s even roped Gorka in to help her, getting him to do workouts with her personal trainer she dubs “Evil Steve” because of the pain he puts them through!

Gemma recently shared a video with her 584k followers in which she said having her boyfriend exercise alongside her makes a real difference to her motivation and helps them spend more time together.

She said: “Taking @gorka_marquez back to Evil Steve. I have a fitness shoot in just under two weeks and I want to rock up feeling my best so we’re on it!

“Gorka is doing the training with me and we’re stepping up our clean eating too which I love (He’s an insanely good cook!).

“Doing it together not only makes it more fun for me, it’s just genuinely nice to hang out and train with my fella.”

Encouraging others to follow her lead, she wrote: “Having support from loved ones as well as your trainer makes any goal you have set that bit easier.”

Gemma and Gorka confirmed their romance last month as they went on holiday together.

The pair met while filming last year’s Strictly – where they both made it to the final with Gemma dancing with Aljaž Škorjanec, and Gorka with singer Alexandra Burke.

Despite persistent rumours of a relationship, the couple didn’t confirm anything until after they’d finished the Strictly Live tour.

Now Gemma has revealed Gorka has passed the most important boyfriend test of all – gaining the approval of her beloved dogs!

Ahhh, what a cute couple they make!
