Gemma Atkinson has revealed what her baby daughter Mia's first word was today - and she is fuming.

The 35-year-old shares Mia with her husband and former Strictly partner Gorka Marquez.

Mia was born in May 2019, and said her first word today - but it wasn't what former Emmerdale actress Gemma hoped.

Taking to her Instagram stories, she said: "I carried her, I had a kidney infection with her around seven months, and was taken to A&E.

"I had an achey back, swollen feet, quite a traumatic birth.

"Followed by a hemorrhage.

"This morning the first thing she starts saying....'Dadadada.'"

She mocked Mia jokingly as she pretended to rage that Mia's first word wasn't "mama", pointing the camera to a very smug looking Gorka.

"Now I know 'dadada' is easier than 'mamama' but COME ON MIA.

"COME ON", she ranted.

Meanwhile Gorka raised his arms at the camera in triumph as he celebrated his daughter's tribute to him.

Gemma recently shared a hilarious mishap regarding Mia, as she pined for her holiday in Greece.

Alongside a photo with Gorka as they cuddled up on the stunning beach, she wrote: "When you wish you were back in Greece but the reality is it’s Monday and Mia’s poo went up her back".

Emmerdale fans have been asking for the actress to make a come back to the soap as character Carly Hope, a role she left in 2017.

However, Emmerdale viewers will be sad to learn that Gemma has said she will not be returning to the Dales any time soon.

The actress, 35, is focusing on her radio show in Manchester as well as being a new mum to baby Mia.

She told the Daily Star Sunday : “I love Emmerdale. It’s a great show. But going back would mean doing a commute to Leeds, doing 12 hours of filming and then going back again.

"So I wouldn’t see Mia."

She added: “People keep messaging me saying I should go back to save Marlon, but I can’t go back at the moment.”

She added: “I’m really enjoying my radio show at the moment. I get to work on my doorstep and it’s very short hours.

"That means I can be at home with my daughter. I could maybe do a couple of episodes at Emmerdale, but I can’t go back long-term."
