He also gave an insight into their relationship when another follower enquired: "Favourite thing about Gemma?" Sharing a photo of the actress and presenter kissing the top of his head, Gorka wrote: "Far [too] many… But I love how caring of everyone she is. And how she makes me laugh. She is so funny."

The couple met on the set of Strictly back in 2017 and welcomed their little girl in July 2019. In a previous interview with HELLO!, the actress-turned-radio presenter stressed the importance of keeping her daughter grounded in this age of social media.

Describing her own social media influencers as "honest", Gemma explained: "I'm not into the pages where it's all about pouting and the hip popping to make your bum look big.

"I get why people do that and again, we all want to post flattering photos. I'm the same, you don't want to put a photo up where you don't look your best. But at the same time, I don't want misleading accounts to make people not feel good about themselves."
