Are Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez dating?
Strictly has been hit by another sex scandal — with Gemma Atkinson reportedly secretly dating Alexandra Burke’s dance partner.
It is the first time in the BBC show’s history that a contestant has hooked up with a dancer who is not their own partner.
A Strictly insider revealed: “Gorka and Gemma are together. It’s the talk of the make-up room.
“Not surprisingly, Alexandra is furious about how it might impact her chances of winning. She’s very ambitious and is nervous about it all.”
Who else have Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez dated?
Gemma’s love life hit the headlines in February when she was treated to a meal at George’s Dining Room and Bar in Manchester by the former Man United player Ryan Giggs.
The former Hollyoaks star previously dated Giggs’s Old Trafford team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo and footballer Marcus Bent.
Gemma recently split from her personal trainer boyfriend Olly Foster.
Meanwhile, Gorka split with his fiance last year on the same night he suffered an alleged assault in Blackpool which left him with two broken teeth.
