It's an incredibly exciting time for Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez at the moment, with the arrival of his first child just around the corner. And on Monday, the professional dancer revealed some big news ahead of his baby's birth to do with his career. While Gorka is known best for his dancing, the star has just landed a new gig as the ambassador for nutritional supplement brand Innermost. This is a perfect role for Gorka, who often shares updates on his own health on social media, particularly his recovery following a back injury that prevented him from taking part in the Strictly Come Dancing tour at the beginning of the year.

In the post, Gorka shared a shirtless photograph of himself, and held a Strong Protein product from the Innermost range in his hand. In the caption, the dad-to-be wrote: "NEWS. So excited to become an ambassador for @liveinnermost. I've been using their products, I love the test and also the results! Go check the link in my bio to see their products and order the ones that work for you. I am currently using the Strong package to help maintain my muscle and aid recovery during all the dancing and travelling!!"
