Gemma Atkinson shows off hair transformation with new fringe

The Emmerdale star "went for dinner, and came out with a fringe"

Gemma Atkinson decided to change things up with her hair over the weekend, and stepped out of the salon with a brand new look. The Emmerdale actress paid a visit to Salon Sloane in London, and was delighted with the results after getting a curtain fringe cut into her long, blonde hair. Taking to Instagram to showcase the results, Gemma told fans: "I've got a fringe. I just randomly cut a fringe on a Sunday. I went for dinner, and came out with a fringe." The Strictly Come Dancing star's friend - who was also in the video - added: "That's what happens when your best friends are hairdressers."

Gorka recently spoke about how he loves having a girlfriend who is as passionate about fitness as him, saying: "In the past, I’ve had girlfriends who never wanted to train. But Gemma loves it and she likes to eat healthy too. She takes good care of herself. When you have someone who has the same interests as you and who you can share stuff with, it’s nice. Gemma trains hard! She is a machine!"
