The ballroom professional told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield during an episode of This Morning: ‘The trouble is the hardest part is our job is being away, especially now Gemma is pregnant.’ 

The couple first crossed paths when they met on Strictly in 2017 and although they were not partnered up on the show, a friendship soon began to develop.

Their relationship eventually came to light when they went on their first romantic getaway on Valentine’s Day 2018 and posted a picture of themselves sat next each other on a picturesque beach on Instagram.

A message on Gemma’s Instagram read: ‘Here’s to many more kid. Happy Valentines Day Gorka Marquez.’
