As Gorka appeared on Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch on Monday 22 March, the professional dancer revealed he and Gemma, who shared the adorable engagement gift she got from daughter Mia, hope for a big affair for their special day.

He said: “In my head, I had it planned maybe for next year, but we don't really know. We’re happy like we are right now.

“We want to make the wedding for all the family and friends.”

He added: “We don’t know yet, so want to plan it properly and have all the family from Spain, all the family from here, friends and everyone coming together.”


Gorka also revealed how he had originally planned to pop the question on their anniversary, which is a week before Valentine’s Day, but changed his mind due to lockdown.

The dancer explained: “I had it planned a week earlier…

“I had a surprise for the anniversary but obviously with covid and everything … so I postponed it a week and it was on Valentine’s Day.

“It was good, I think it worked in my favour.”

The TV star cooked a Spanish tortilla as he chatted on the Channel 4 show and explained how it is one of Gemma’s favourite dishes.

He admitted he was less than impressed when she recently came home with a shop-bought one.

Gorky said: “Recently she came home from the supermarket and she’s bought it from the supermarket.

“‘So that means you don’t like my one…’ I felt like she was cheating on me a little bit!”
