Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez give us ab goals in latest couples photo

The one benefit of Gorka Marquez and Katie Piper being eliminated from Strictly Come Dancing? He gets to spend more time with girlfriend Gemma Atkinson! The former Emmerdale star shared a loved-up snap with her boyfriend on Instagram on Sunday, and we don’t know what we’re more envious of – their perfect relationship or chiselled bodies.

The photo – captioned "making me smile since day 1" - showed Gemma and Gorka holding hands and gazing at each other while laughing on the beach. Taken from the couple’s exclusive HELLO! magazine shoot in Greece during the summer, it showed them both dressed in swimwear revealing their impressively toned abs, and fans couldn’t help but comment on their "matching abs". "You both look amazing," one commented. "Jealous," another wrote, while a third added: "Abs for dayzzzz. How beautiful are they though?"

"It's a case of couples that train together, stay together," the PT told HELLO!. "It seems to be true in their case, they both obviously have a massive interest in fitness which I assume is one of their common grounds."

Gemma has made no secret of her love for the Spanish dancer, and previously told HELLO!: "Gorka is like my best mate. He's very supportive and understanding of my career, and I'm very supportive and understanding of his. It works well. I hope he's The One, otherwise I wouldn't be with him."
