Gemma Atkinson breaks down in tears live on TV as Strictly fiance Gorka Marquez sends her emotional message
GEMMA Atkinson broke down in tears live on TV as her Strictly Come Dancing fiance Gorka Marquez sent her an emotional message.
The actress, 35, is currently missing her other half as the professional dancer, 30, is forced to isolate while filming the BBC One show.
However, on Monday's episode of Steph's Packed Lunch, Gemma was overwhelmed when Gorka appeared on screen with a supportive message.
Gorka – who has left the presenter and baby Mia in their Manchester home – said: "Hello baby, I hope you are having a great show. I just wanted to surprise you and say that I am so proud of you and everything that you do.
"You’re a super mum, taking care of Mia for all these weeks – doing your radio show and now doing Steph’s Packed Lunch – just want to tell you that I love you and I am so proud of you. I cannot wait to be back with you."
The soap star was touched by the message as she began to break down in tears.
She said: "I’m getting a little teary eyed – bless him! Since I’ve had a baby, I cry at everything!"
Gemma met the dancer on the set of Strictly and welcomed one-year-old Mia last year.
The mum-of-one got emotional in July as they celebrated their daughter's first baby.
On her stories page, the Hits Radio UK DJ showed a clip of Gorka busy wrapping gifts in pink paper as she admitted the pair had had an "emotional meltdown" over Mia turning one.
In a later video, in her candidly blunt style, Gemma explained just why and wrote: "I think I'm so emotional because of how Mia was born.
"There was a brief moment in labour that I didn't think she'd be here at all never mind have the most wonderful year!
"That and my period must be due because I never cry," followed by a face-palm Emoji.
She then added: "Right I'm off to eat three white chocolate Magnums!"
Alongside her cute image montage, she added the words: "Feliz cumpleaños Mia! Your very first Birthday!!!!
"Thank you for choosing me to be your mum. You’re my everything. Making us so proud and keeping us laughing daily (even on little sleep).
"Me and papa love you ❤️ Enjoy your special day!"
