Gemma Atkinson reminisces about the day she met Gorka at Strictly launch

Gemma Atkinson has recalled the very first moment she met Gorka Marquez and it almost sounds like it was love at first sight.

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant recalled how it was exactly two years ago to the day that she first laid eyes on the hunky dancer.

They had met for lunch on the day of their own red carpet launch show – for the 2017 series – and she remembered how 'gorgeous' she thought he was.

Gemma, 34, even said she had gossiped about the professional dancer with her long-time make-up artist and close pal Cinta Miller.

Posting a picture of the throwback image before becoming a mum to Mia, she wrote: "Exactly 2 years ago today on our Strictly launch. Completely unaware that the coffee and chat id just had with a Gorgeous Spanish Dancer would lead to so much…

"I actually said to @cintalondon that evening at her house 'so there’s this guy called Gorka' to which she replied 'hold on a minute, let me get us a drink and some nibbles'."

Gorka cheekily responded in the comments with a peach emoji that resembles a bottom: "I LOVE YOU!!! PS: [peach emoji, love heart]"
