Gemma Atkinson shares disappointment as she addresses Gorka’s Strictly exit

Gemma says daughter Mia prefers Bobby and Adam over dad Gorka

Gemma Atkinson shared her daughter Mia’s disappointment over her dad Gorka Marquez’s appearance on Strictly Come Dancing.

The actress and professional dancer share two children together – four-year-old Mia and baby Thiago, who was born in July.

Speaking to Lorraine about her children, Gemma admitted Mia’s dad has never been her favourite Strictly star.

Gemma explained Mia became “obsessed” with Will Mellor following his stint and this year, she is loving Bobby Brazier and Adam Thomas.

Lorraine said: “Mia likes to watch her daddy and I know he’s out of the show now, but he still has to do all of the professional dances, but her daddy is not her favourite, is that right?”

“She is still really into Will Mellor,” Gemma replied. “She is obsessed with Will Mellor still.

“And this year, she likes Bobby and Adam, so she likes the boys, every year she likes the boys.

“This one she can’t decide, she says, ‘I like Adam and I like Bobby’, but she’s still sad Will isn’t dancing.”

Turning her attention to baby Thiago, Lorraine asked Gemma if she could have a peek at the baby.

As Gemma called the professional dancer over, she discussed his recent exit from the show, she said: “With Gorka home, I can relax a little bit and Gorka can sort it.”

“Say hello to Lorraine, Gork,” the former soap star added as Gorka came into the shot holding baby Thiago.

“He is gorgeous,” the ITV host beamed as she added: “But obviously, the baby’s daddy also is gorgeous. Oh, Thiago is beautiful.”

The weekend before last, Gorka and his dance partner Nikita Kanda were eliminated from the show after landing in the bottom two.
