Gemma Atkinson says she won’t be watching Gorka and Katie McGlynn’s first Strictly dance

Gemma Atkinson has explained why she won’t be watching fiancé Gorka Marquez strut his stuff with Strictly Come Dancing partner Katie McGlynn this evening.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the former Hollyoaks actress shared a glittery snap of Gorka and Katie pulling daft faces with her 1.7 million followers.

She said “I’m at a 40th tonight so will miss these two smashing that Tango!”

“I’ve seen it and it’s ACE!” added the proud wife-to-be.

The encouraging Insta Story came right after another, with Gemma sobbing about the terror of hangovers for folks no longer in their 20s.

In a pictureless caption, the 36-year-old confessed: “30s hit different with training AND hangovers unfortunately”.

Giving fitness influencers in their 20s a proper dressing down, she said: “Listen, I was skinny and hot as f*** when I was 21, too. My diet was vodka, ramen, coffee, and cigarettes. My workout was walking to parties drunk as f*** in 5-inch heels”.

“You don’t impress me. Come back when you’re 30”, added the Bury-born star, channelling Shania Twain!

Whether or not Gemma plans to hit the vodka at tonight’s 40th birthday bash, she’ll definitely miss Gorka and Katie spin around the ballroom to Griff’s Black Hole.

But the former Emmerdale star clearly wants them to nail their dance routine.

“Have the best time @katiexmcglynn @gorka_marquez”, she penned, dropping a few high-five emojis in the mix.

This isn’t the first time the mum-of-one has come out in support of the dancing duo, wishing them well in past social media posts too.

Not long after fans heard producers had paired up Gorka and Katie for the hit BBC series, she shared a snap of the pair, cheering them on with a lively “Come on!”

And there’s no green-eyed monster either.

Back in 2018, Gemma revealed she never feels jealous watching her beau dance with other women.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, she said: “I’ll be proud of him for teaching someone else to dance.”

“I’ll be passing the baton, so to speak”, she added with a reference to her own 2017 stint in the ballroom with dancing partner Aljaz Skorjanec.
