The lovebirds are now looking forward to making wedding plans as soon as more COVID restrictions are eased. "We're obviously not going to do it this year given everything that is going on, the only thing we have agreed on so far is that we are going to do it abroad," Gemma recently said on Steph's Packed Lunch.

Confirming their big day will be a destination wedding, the 36-year-old revealed that they have no plans to tie the knot this year. She added: "Gorka wants his family to be able to order drinks at the bar and understand the waiters.

"His family don't speak English and my family don't speak Spanish, so we've said that we'll meet halfway. That's all we've agreed on. Not this year, but the year after - if I can tolerate him for that long obviously!"
