"The incredible ladies I trekked with and camped with for a week on the @coppafeelpeople cancer charity challenge. To say I was shocked is an understatement [laughing face emoji]."

She added: "Today they drove from all over the country to my local village and it means so much. They even had a zoom set up at the end of the table for those that couldn’t make it so they could also join us."

It's been an exciting time for Gemma and her fiancé, Gorka. The couple – who are proud parents to three-year-old daughter Mia – recently returned home from a sun-soaked family holiday.

The lovebirds treated their loyal fans to regular Instagram updates, shining a light on their blissful trip away. Among the snapshots, Gorka posted a slew of picture-perfect beach photos featuring little Mia. "Holiday memories…" he noted in his caption, followed by a red and yellow heart emoji.

The family-of-three are soon set to become a family-of-four. The former Hollyoaks star shared news of her pregnancy back in January with the sweetest black and white photo. 

Alongside the snapshot which showcased her blossoming bump, Gemma gushed: "Impossible to hide my belly any longer. I've officially 'popped.' Our baby boy will be joining our family later this year.
