Strictly Come Dancing's Gemma Atkinson has showed off her growing baby bump in a brand new picture, joking she looks like an "Easter egg".

The former Hollyoaks actress is expecting her first child with partner Gorka Marquez soon, and shared a suitably Easter-themed update on her pregnancy on Instagram.

Posting a picture of herself in a black dress with her baby bump, Gemma joked in the caption: "Who ate all the eggs?! First Easter where I actually look like and Easter Egg and I bloody love it!"

Last month, the star hit out at people who may have judged her for doing a hill climb in Spain, labelling them the "pregnancy police".

"Last week me and Gorks climbed Mount Teide (it's a drive, cable car and flat walk before the pregnancy police start on me) I haven't been here since my dad passed away," she wrote.

"We used to come every year and do the hike so it was bitter sweet, but I know he somehow helped drag me up there."

Meanwhile, Gorka recently discussed how he would bring up the baby with Gemma, explaining that the child will speak both his native Spanish and English.

"Of course our baby will learn to speak Spanish – Gemma loves where I'm from too," he said. "She's been to visit, we love how hot it is. I love being an uncle so I can't wait to be a dad."

The pair originally met on the 2017 series of Strictly Come Dancing, and moved in together last year.
