Who is Gemma Atkinson?

Gemma Louise Atkinson was born November 16, 1984, and is an English actress and ex-glamour model.

Emmerdale fans will, of course, recognise Gemma from her role as Carly Hope in the ITV soap.

But she's probably best known for playing Lisa Hunter in teen favourite Hollyoaks.

She was on the Channel 4 programme for five years between 2001 to 2005, this was followed by appearances in I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and the BBC's Casualty before joining the cast of Emmerdale in 2015.

She was then a runner up on Strictly in 2017.

Gemma also co-hosts Key 103's Breakfast Show.

When did Gemma Atkinson start dating Gorka Marquez? Are they having a baby?

Gemma's love life has often hit the headlines.

Throughout the 2017 Strictly series, she and her co-star Gorka Marquez were constantly asked whether they were dating.

Despite months of questioning and speculation, the pair continued to deny their romance.

On Valentine's Day 2018 the pair FINALLY confirmed one of the worst-kept secrets in showbiz that they were a couple.

Sharing a snap of her resting her head on Gorka's shoulder as they sat on the beach on holiday on Instagram, she wrote: "Here’s to many more kid. Happy Valentines Day [email protected]_marquez."

Then on February 1, 2019 the couple revealed they were expecting their first baby.
