Rumours have run wild that Gorka Marquez has struck up a romance with Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson, 32 – and according to The Sun, the Bad Boys singer isn’t too happy about it. 

A source told the publication: “Gorka is a professional and he is not giving up any of his rehearsal time with Alex to see Gemma.

“Their romance doesn’t seem to distract him at all. But it is a sore point for Alex, who wishes she — and their dancing — was his sole focus. It really irritates her to see him flirting with Gemma.

Gemma Atkinson and Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez have been at the centre of romance rumours for weeks.

Gemma is partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec for her stint on Strictly Come Dancing, while Gorka is teamed with X Factor winner Alexandra.

Gemma recently shut down rumours of a romance, telling the Daily Star: “I really don’t want to talk about my love life to be honest.

“I don’t feel the need to respond to anyone about what I’m doing.”

The actress added that the romance rumours don’t bother her, leading many fans to further speculate that the rumours may be true.

“I’m used to it,” she added. “I’ve had to talk about who I’m dating for the past 15 years. You’ve got to take everything with a pinch of salt.”

She continued: “We’re all so focused on the dancing that we haven’t really got time to pay attention to anything that’s said outside.

“We’re all getting on with it, having a laugh and enjoying ourselves. We’re all hanging out after training together. The main focus is the dancing.”
