Who’d have thought a tipsy taxi ride after the Strictly launch party would lead us to where we are now."

(I hadn't) but hey!" She continued: "It was fun, and it lead to our friendship which months later, lead to our partnership.

The couple have been together since teaming up on the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 tour, and have since been flooding their Instagram pages with couples' workouts and cosy dates. Gemma, who is based in Manchester while Gorka resides in London, has previously spoken out about how the long distance between them can actually be a blessing. "He's very funny, I like the fact that he's funny he makes me laugh and because he's in London and I'm in Manchester I think that's a good thing because you both have to make an effort to see each other," she told Manchester Evening News.
