Gemma Atkinson admits to crush on Strictly Come Dancing co-star

This isn't who anyone would expect!

Gemma Atkinson has spent most of this series of Strictly Come Dancing batting off rumours that she is enjoying a romance with pro dancer Gorka Marquez – and embroiled in a feud with his partner Alexandra Burke.

But now the actress and radio presenter has admitted to having a crush on another Strictly co-star.

And it’s a surprising one!

“I have a big girl crush on Debbie McGee,” she told The Sun TV Mag. “Her body is amazing!”

Well, there’s no denying that fact.

Gemma did address the reports she’s been growing close to Gorka again, too and teased that there COULD be romance on the cards once the series has come to an end.

“I know people want to see a Strictly romance but I’m not going to be giving you any, I’m afraid, because I’m so focused on my dancing,” the 33-year-old added.

“Maybe once the series is over, but not right now…”

Talking about how special making it to Blackpool this weekend, Gemma told the magazine: “It’s very nostalgic because I remember going on holiday there as a kid.

“We used to go twice a year and I have so many happy memories of eating rock, walking along the pier and riding The Big One. I still have a fridge magnet of me on that when it first opened.

“It’s obviously a big benchmark in the competition, and being from up north, it’s really special for me to get there.”

Doubtless, all the northern viewers will be voting for her, too!
