Gemma Atkinson took to Instagram to share a post about hangovers being harder to deal with in your 30s than when you’re in your 20s. While on the subject, the 36-year-old said she will be at a party this evening, so will miss the first live Strictly Come Dancing show. 

In view of her 1.7 million followers, she wrote: “I’m at a 40th tonight so will miss these two smashing that Tango!

“I’ve seen it and it’s ACE. Have the best time @katiexmcglynn @gorka_marquez.”

Gorka and Katie will perform the routine to Griff’s Black Hole.

The mother-of-one has shared her support for the pair in previous posts.

Following the news they will be dancing together, she shared a picture of the duo, writing: “Come on!”

Former Coronation Street star Katie said she could “be herself” within hours of meeting the professional dancer.

On getting close to Gorka for dances, she said: “I know it’s not exactly the same, but because I’m an actress, I have to kiss people a lot… well not a lot.”

The dancer swiftly chimed in: “You don’t kiss in dancing.”

She replied, laughing: “No I know. But I’m used to being in awkward situations and I’m not awkward, I’m really chilled with stuff like that.

“So we’ll just ramp it up and then when we get off probably laugh,” Katie added to The Sun.

The Hollyoaks actress is in the running to win the Glitterball trophy alongside; Ugo Monye, Judi Love, Adam Peaty, Rose Ayling-Ellis, Nina Wadia, Greg Wise Tilly Ramsay, Dan Walker, John Whaite, AJ Odudu, Robert Webb, Tom Fletcher, Rhys Stephenson and Sara Davies.

In 2018, Gemma, who shares two-year-old daughter Mia with Gorka, said she doesn’t get jealous seeing her husband-to-be dance with other women.

She told “I’ll be proud of him for teaching someone else to dance.

“I’ll be passing the baton, so to speak.

“I do hope that whoever he gets is in Manchester so that I can go into training sessions and tell her what she’s doing wrong,” she laughed.

Gemma showcased her moves on Strictly Come Dancing back in 2017, dancing with Aljaz Skorjanec.

In the same year, Gorka danced with Alexandra Burke.

Both duos made it through to the final of the show, but missed out on the Glitterball trophy to Joe McFadden and Katya Jones.

The following year, Gemma and Gorka confirmed they were dating after speculation arose.

In 2019, they welcomed their first baby together, a daughter named Mia.

They announced their engagement on Valentine’s Day this year.
