Strictly's Gorka Marquez and Gemma Atkinson on their first holiday

While Gemma and Gorka will have a lot to look forward to with their new baby's arrival, they may not get time to go away together anytime soon. Gemma revealed recently that she won't be joining her boyfriend on the Strictly cruise this year as she doesn’t want to risk getting ill while pregnant. She responded to a fan who asked her: "Not this year. I don't want to risk being poorly with my baby belly. The show will be fab though!" At the beginning of February, Gemma and Gorka revealed that they were expecting their first baby together, and have been inundated with well wishes ever since.

Later in the week, Gemma showed off her blossoming baby bump for the first time in a sweet Instagram photo with her beloved pet dog. Gemma has also been receiving some lovely gifts from her work friends at Hits Radio, who bought her Babygro that featured the British and Spanish flags with the words "50 percent" next to each of them, and the words "100 per cent me" underneath.
