Gorka Marquez's daughter Mia appears to be following in her dad's footsteps as she danced along to his routine with Maisie Smith on Strictly Come Dancing

Gorka's partner Gemma Atkinson shared an adorable clip of the 15-month-old toddler, dressed in a rainbow-printed top and yellow leggings, watching her dad on TV at home.

She asked the tot "Is that papa dancing?" before Mia showed some moves of her own, wiggling her arms from side to side, with a smile on her face.

Gemma captioned the sweet video: "Gorks and Maisie take 9 in our house. “Gen Gen” whilst pointing at the tele has been our Sunday evening @gorka_marquez."

Gorka and EastEnders star Maisie impressed the Strictly judges, who awarded them 24 points out of 30. Their fast-paced samba placed them second on the leaderboard in the studio.

Gemma and Gorka met during Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 and announced in February 2019 that they were expecting a baby. Their daughter Mia arrived on 4 July 2019.

Gorka reached the Strictly final with Alexandra Burke in 2017, where they finished as joint runners-up.

Last year, he wasn't given a partner for the series, only appearing in the group dances. Back in September, however, the BBC revealed that the Spaniard would be assigned a partner for 2020.

Commenting on his Instagram account at the time, the star's fans were quick to share their excitement, writing: "Good luck on Strictly this season," "So happy to see you have a partner this season," and: "Can't wait to see you on Strictly this season! You are one of my faves!"
