Gemma Atkinson, 34, and Gorka Marquez, 28, appeared on Strictly Come Dancing together in 2017, and the pair confirmed their romance the following year in a sweet Instagram post on Valentine’s Day. The ballroom professional has now spoken about the “hardest” part of his career as he admitted it is the fact he has to leave his pregnant girlfriend which is the most difficult. Speaking to This Morning presenters, Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, the Spanish hunk said: “The trouble is the hardest part is our job is being away, especially now Gemma is pregnant.” The dancer recently wrapped up his Strictly Come Dancing tour with his co-stars and now he is headed out on a new tour for Here Comes The Boys with Giovanni Pernice, 28, and Aljaz Skorjanec, 29.
During the interview Aljaz, who is married to Strictly’s Janette Manrara, also gushed over his partner as he shared that he is broody.
The hunky Slovenian told the hosts: “I’ve felt broody for the last 10 years since I met Janette, I’ve always wanted kids.”
