Like many of us, Gemma Atkinson loves soaking up the sun, including on fabulous trips to Bilbao alongside her fiancé, Strictly dancer Gorka Marquez.

At the weekend, she took to Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes snaps from their holidays. In the first photo, Gemma could be seen floating on a lilo as she wore a black strapless bikini and looked out to sea.

Responding after Gorka and Helen Skelton set the dancefloor alight, Gemma took to social media, posting a string of applause emojis as she reshared a clip from Strictly Come Dancing's official Twitter account which showed a sensational snippet from the pair's performance.

Captioning the clip were the words: "The power, the sass Helen's found her inner Sally Bowles on the dance floor with Gorka #Strictly @HelenSkelton @gorkamarquez."

The jaw-dropping Fosse-inspired routine went on to receive huge praise from the judges with Anton Du Beke confessing he felt "emotional" watching Helen dance after seeing her progress.
