Inside Strictly’s Gorka Marquez and Gemma Atkinson’s ‘dream’ home with huge gym, modern kitchen and big screen


STRICTLY star Gorka Marquez and Gemma Atkinson has given fans a glimpse inside her luxury pad with a huge home gym.

Pro dancer Gorka, 31 is currently paired with former Corrie star Katie McGlynn for this series of the BBC ballroom show.

The pair made wowed viewers with their Tango to Black Hole by Griff as they made their dancing debut this weekend.

When Gorka is not spending time in the dance studio, he can unwind at his "dream home" with former Hollyoaks star Gemma and their sweet daughter Mia and pet dogs Norman and Ollie.

The Strictly duo, who moved into the home in September 2020, have a stunning pad complete with a fully-equipped home gym, a meditation area and a chic garden.

The couple have a spacious hallway with plenty of natural lighting to take full length mirror selfies.

They have a trendy wooden staircase with a black and white theme and have kept the décor minimalistic.

Gorka has given fans a sneak peek at his plush dining room, which features black rimmed patio doors and a large wooden dinner table.

It's the perfect place to relax after a long day of rehearsals and enjoy some family time.

Meanwhile, their contemporary kitchen comes with all the latest gadgets and is the ideal place for cooking up a storm.

It has a large marble kitchen island and plenty of storage, including fridge and freezer space.

Gorka and Gemma regularly update fans on their fitness regimes, sharing clips or their home workouts.

The couple can exercise to their hearts content in their lavish home gym which has a treadmill, other equipment and a superb view of their garden.

When they're not indoors, they can soak up the sunshine in their garden which boasts exotic trees and plants.

There is also space for an inflatable pool and a room for Mia and the dogs to run around.

Gemma and Gorka met on Strictly Come Dancing in 2017 and revealed they were dating shortly after taking part in the tour. 


Gorka and new dance partner Katie impressed judges with their routine in their first dance and landed a score of 22.

Katie promised to bring the sex appeal last week as prepared to make her Strictly Come Dancing debut.

Katie, 28, told The Sun's TV magazine she felt she could 'be herself' with Gorka within hours of meeting him, which will come in handy when they have to pull off some sexy dance moves.

"That’s the best way to be with that kind of stuff. I know it’s not exactly the same, but because I’m an actress, I have to kiss people a lot… well not a lot," she started, as Gorka declared, "you don’t kiss in dancing."

Katie quickly replied, laughing: "No I know. But I’m used to being in awkward situations and I’m not awkward, I’m really chilled with stuff like that.

"So we’ll just ramp it up and then when we get off probably laugh."

Gorka added the steamy dances should be a breeze for the Hollyoaks star because it's all acting.

"When people go, ‘How can you dance so close with someone?’ and I’m thinking, well it’s like actors when they have to do a love scene or a kissing scene or even an X-rated scene," he explained.

"It’s all pretending. Sometimes it doesn’t look like that, it's the way they have the camera."
