"I'm always torn when it comes to leaving Mia for work as I've been totally spoilt having my mornings with her," she said. On wanting to set up a good example for her daughter, Gemma added: "But I also love my career and job opportunities and obviously want to show her the importance of working.

The couple are parents to baby Mia

The 35-year-old star met Gorka on the set of Strictly back in 2017, but the pair kept their romance under wraps until the series ended. Unusually for the show's love stories, they weren't dance partners - Gemma was coupled with Aljaz and Gorka danced with Alexandra Burke. There's no denying that two years on, the gorgeous couple are still going strong and welcomed daughter Mia on 4 July 2019.
