The Strictly Come Dancing star announced that she is in a relationship with the professional dancer on Valentine’s Day following months of speculation that the pair were dating, and she now has insisted that their romance is still going strong after posting a cute message.

Gemma Atkinson, 33, took to her Instagram account to post the message: “The best relationships are the ones you never saw coming.”

The dancing duo met during their time on BBC series Strictly Come Dancing, which was won by Holby City star Joe McFadden, 42, and Katya Jones, 28, in December.

While the pair were not partnered together in the show, they grew close on the nationwide tour which came to an end earlier this month.

The cute couple regularly hinted to their followers that they were dating after they posted a series of cosy snaps together throughout their time on the nationwide tour.

The pairs’ series of selfies included snaps of them together at the cinema, at a swanky restaurant and also looking cosy at a coffee shop.

After their hectic tour schedule came to an end, the twosome jetted off to Tenerife together to spend some time alone together.

During a trip to the beach, the couple couldn’t resist sharing their love for each other as they held hands while they sunbathed.

The radio host took charge of taking the close-up selfie of her and her beau in which she put on a busty display for her followers.

The blonde showed off her tan and desirable body in a khaki bikini, while Gorka posed topless and flaunted his abs and sleeve tattoo.

After returning home from their romantic getaway, the couple went their separate ways for a couple of days and headed back to work.

Gemma took to her Key 103 radio show to explain to her listeners how she fell for Gorka during their time on Strictly.

“During the show we only saw each other at weekends, everyone was saying, ‘Oh they’re together,’ but we genuinely weren’t,” she revealed.

“We just went for coffee and stuff on Sundays, not every Sunday, you can’t get to know someone just by seeing them at weekends.

She added: “It was only when the tour started that we saw each other all the time and we thought oh ok, this could work, and it did, and it does so far.”
