Gemma Atkinson delays her wedding to Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez

Gemma Atkinson has postponed her wedding to Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez.

The actress, 37, and the professional dancer, 31, got engaged in February 2021, four years after meeting on Strictly and share two-year-old daughter Mia.

The former Hollyoaks star explained that her fiancé Gorka's hectic Strictly tour schedule means they cannot fit in their marriage this year.

She told New magazine: "Gorka is literally on tour all of this year. We've only got four days off together.

"He's got the two Strictly tours back to back, and then he'll be going on Strictly in the autumn. We don't even have a minute to sit down and begin making plans!"

Gemma confessed that when the pair finally do walk down the aisle, they'd prefer to have a small and intimate do.

It comes after she previously shared how instead of an extravagant wedding, they would prefer to try for another baby.

Speaking on Vicky Pattison's podcast, The Secret To, she revealed: "We've said we would prefer to try for another baby rather than have a big, fancy wedding.

"There are people who will spend £50k on a wedding and you think, 'Oh my God'.

"Twice we thought about going to the registry office and just doing it and then having a big party."

Talking on Lorraine, the actress revealed that while it wasn't Gorka's fault that he had work commitments, he wanted to be at home with her and their daughter.
