Gemma Atkinson ‘teary eyed’ during live TV chat as Gorka sends emotional message

Gemma Atkinson was left emotional live on TV as her Strictly Come Dancing star fiancé Gorka Marquez sent her an heartfelt message while he isolates away from her.

The former Emmerdale and Hollyoaks actress is currently separated from her other half while the professional dancer is forced to isolate while filming the BBC One show.

Gemma, 35, was overwhelmed when Gorka appeared on-screen to send a heartfelt message to her while she appeared on an episode of Steph's Packed Lunch on Monday (October 6).

Gorka, 30, who shares baby Mia with Gemma, said: "Hello baby, I hope you are having a great show. I just wanted to surprise you and say that I am so proud of you and everything that you do.

"You’re a super mum, taking care of Mia for all these weeks – doing your radio show and now doing Steph’s Packed Lunch – just want to tell you that I love you and I am so proud of you. I cannot wait to be back with you."

Clearly touched by his message, Gemma got emotional as she fanned herself.

The blonde star, who met Gorka when she appeared on Strictly, said: "I’m getting a little teary eyed – bless him! Since I’ve had a baby, I cry at everything!"

Gemma and Gorka welcomed one-year-old Mia last year.

Gemma also got emotional back in July as the couple celebrated their daughter's first baby.

On her Instagram Story, the radio DJ shared a clip of Gorka wrapping gifts in pink paper.

She admitted they'd had an "emotional meltdown" over Mia turning one.

Gemma said in a video: "I think I'm so emotional because of how Mia was born.

"There was a brief moment in labour that I didn't think she'd be here at all never mind have the most wonderful year!

"That and my period must be due because I never cry."
