While appearing on Steph’s Packed Lunch earlier this week, Gemma admitted that she wasn’t ready to walk down the aisle just yet.

She told host Steph McGovern: “I don’t know if I could be bothered with everything. I’d say no, not yet.

However, the actress did talk of how she would want to go to a registry office.

Gemma continued: “I would be up for a quick wedding, you know, a local registry office, get it done, boom.
