In the sweet video, one-year-old Mia stood in front of the TV at the family's home in Greater Manchester as a music video played.

The little girl started by bending her knees and then swayed her shoulders at the camera with gusto. Next, she turned toward the TV, looked at her feet and began to move from one to another.

Gorka, who joined the cast of Strictly back in 2016, had captioned the sweet clip: "Saturday vibes."

The proud dad must have been happy to see the young tot enjoying herself in his absence.

The 30-year-old has had to move to London temporarily in order to prepare for the upcoming series of Strictly, which begins next month.

Gemma, meanwhile, is set to start a new job in Leeds on Monday, working as a correspondent for former BBC presenter Steph McGovern's new Channel 4 show, Steph's Packed Lunch.

Gorka, meanwhile, posted a lovely snap of the family and remarked: "Missing the priceless moments with my girls @glouiseatkinson."

The former Emmerdale actress went on: "But I also love my career and job opportunities... Mental torture at times this parent stuff ain't it?"
