"I've been up most of the night with Mia, bless her. She's got a cough. She's had it for about two weeks," Gemma explained.

"Just literally about 3am she starts and it's like a bark, bless her. We're propping her bed up, we're putting eucalyptus vapor on her chest, on her feet. We've got a diffuser in her room. We've even put a raw onion in her room."

She continued: "I'm going to insist [that] a doctor sees her today… For my peace of mind, I will insist. Because at the minute you can't get in. You have to go online and fill out all these forms… I know it's such a nightmare."

"Managed to get her an appointment so will see what they say. At least they can listen to her chest and it's reassuring if anything for me and Gorks."

Gemma and Gorka are set to welcome their second child – a baby boy – later this year. Talking to HELLO! about welcoming a new addition, dad Gorka revealed: "He'll be a little sibling – and maybe future dance partner – for our daughter Mia. She’s obsessed with dancing, so who knows."

The professional dancer, who made it to the final of Strictly in 2022 alongside Helen Skelton, continued: "We're a homely family and I love being there, watching movies together, walking the dogs and having barbecues in summer."
