Strictly's Gorka Marquez breaks silence after being ditched from tour line up | The Sun

GORKA Marquez has broken his silence after it was announced he would not be taking part in the live Strictly tour.

The pro dancer, 32,  competed in this year’s competition with Helen Skelton, but she will be hitting the road with Kai Widdrington instead.

Gorka has shown his support for the pairing though by sharing a series of clapping hand emojis beneath the announcement.

During the final over the weekend, fans think they spotted Gorka looking ‘fuming’ as he missed out to Hamza Yassin and Jowita Przystal.

This is now the third time Gorka has failed to hold the glitterball trophy after making it to the final.

Spotting his reaction at the time, one fan commented: "Gorka can’t hide his feelings at all 🤣 … I feel you hun #Strictly #StrictlyComeDancing."
