The star hasn't revealed where she and her family, including fiancé Gorka Marquez and daughter Mia, have jetted off to, but it wouldn't be surprising if they had chosen the Canary Islands.

The couple have travelled to Tenerife on different occasions. Last summer, she revealed her dreams of being able to visit her favourite hotel on the island.

"Usually heading off to our favourite hotel in Tenerife at this time," she explained.

"This year it's a staycation at home. We've got the sun though, got the paddling pool and got the Gin so we're good! Two weeks off work! Frooooom NOW!"

Her fiancé jokingly responded to her post, as he jested: "Yeah!!! I can't wait at least we got the palm hahah."

The destination has been popular with the couple for years; they last visited when Gemma was pregnant with Mia, but before that, Gemma used to visit with her parents.

Talking about returning following her dad's death, Gemma told fans back in 2019: "Last week me and Gorks climbed Mount Teide (it’s a drive, cable car and flat walk before the pregnancy police start on me.

"I haven't been here since my dad passed away. We used to come every year and do the hike so it was bittersweet, but I know he somehow helped drag me up there."
