Gemma Atkinson has responded to seeing the Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers back together, including her fiancé Gorka Marquez. Gorka, who recently welcomed his second child with Gemma, has left their home in Manchester to work in London for the upcoming season of Strictly. He shared a heartfelt photo of their daughter Mia watching the television while her baby brother slept nearby, expressing how much he already misses them.
Meanwhile, Amy Dowden, a Strictly dancer who recently revealed her second cancer diagnosis, shared a group photo with her co-stars during the first day of rehearsals. Amy won’t be able to participate in the contest, as she needs to undergo chemotherapy after having a mastectomy. She remains optimistic and hopeful that she can still be involved with the show in some way. Gemma and Gorka, along with the other Strictly cast members, expressed their support and excitement for the upcoming season in response to Amy’s post.
Amy’s surprise appearance during rehearsals brought joy to her friends and co-stars, and she expressed her gratitude for being able to be with them in that moment. Gemma and other Strictly personalities praised the group photo, and fans sent messages of love and support to Amy.
