We're not surprised Gorka pays close attention to giving his body the nutrients and energy it needs since he has such an intense weekly training schedule during Strictly season.

His partner Gemma previously told HELLO! what the pair like to eat at home. The star revealed breakfast is a major event in their household and the fitness-loving duo always make sure they start the day off right.

Gemma Atkinson recently shared an insight into their family breakfasts

She said: "I'll either have poached eggs on a bagel with avocado and some greens, or I'll have my porridge with almonds, berries and honey."

After getting in a workout session in the morning, she restores her energy with a nutritious, vegetable-packed smoothie. "Then I'll train and I'll probably have a smoothie mid-morning with whey protein, coconut milk, almonds, frozen spinach, frozen broccoli and frozen cauliflower", she added.
