The pair were reported to be having “full blown, screaming rows”, with Alexandra Burke reported to be jealous over Gorka Marquez’s relationship with Gemma Atkinson. 

However, in an exclusive interview with OK! Magazine, Alexandra opened up about the rumours of a rift saying: “I actually know where that came from. We did a red carpet interview and we were talking about how, one time, I was doing the jive and I made a mistake. 

“He just stopped and went: ‘The timing!’ and I was like: ‘Why are you stopping? I’m still kicking and flicking!’

“It was so funny and they turned it into us having a row. It was heartbreaking. Then they involved Gemma, and that had nothing to do with anything.

“The backlash I was getting online was really hurtful. I took myself off Twitter. We know the truth.

“We’re having the best time and have a great friendship.

“For the Argentine tango, we had to be nose to nose! Our lips have touched!

That, for me, is nothing because I’ve done acting before – but it’s so intimate, if there was an issue, trust me! I love dancing with him and I’ve made a friend for life.”

Gorka, meanwhile, has maintained that he and Emmerdale actress Gemma are “just friends”.
