Gemma Atkinson has told fans 'here we go' as she and Gorka Marquez shared some exciting news. They revealed that there are just weeks to go until the couple return to screens in their very own reality show.

Last year, Hits Radio host Gemma and Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka appeared in their own series ahead of the arrival of their second child and showed the pair opening up their lives and Greater Manchester home to the cameras as they documented their second pregnancy journey and the "absolute utter chaos of our day-to-day lives at home juggling work, dogs, toddlers and hormones."

Since the cameras stopped rolling, the couple, who met on Strictly in 2017, have since welcomed their son Thiago, known as Tio for short, into the world back in July, just over four years after the pair welcomed their first child, Mia.

So back in January, Gemma, 39, and Gorka, 33, revealed they were letting the cameras back in to share more of their life unfiltered in the second series of Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens for UKTV’s free-to-air entertainment channel W and streaming service UKTV Play.

Produced by Two Rivers Media, the hit UKTV Original series will once again see the couple will open their doors to their private life and offer viewers an intimate look into their world, as they embrace full-on family chaos since becoming a family of four.

Gemma and Gorka said at the time of the announcement: "We’re excited to be back on your screens with W for our second series. The messages we received, and are still receiving from the first series, have blown us away. We’re glad so many families can relate to ours and the crazy, wonderful, and exhausting world of parenthood!"

Now, they've confirmed its air date. Sharing a new trailer to Instagram, Gemma could be seen in the early stages of being a mum-of-two as four-year-old Mia could be heard introducing her family - including pet pooches Ollie and Norman - one by one before they were seen cracking on with family and work life.

"Here we go!" Gemma started the caption of her post on Instagram. "Gemma & Gorka: Life behind the lens series 2. Starts 6th May at 8pm on @wtvchannel and @uktvplay Thank you so much you for sticking with us. It means a lot."

The Bury-born star explained: "We started filming early January showing the highs, lows, laughs and tears as a family of 4 (well 6 with our Norman and Ollie). Hope you enjoy our show!"

And fans were thrilled to know when the show would be back. @mazza.dermotty said: "Can’t wait. Love your little family. You are an inspirational role model for younger girls too Gemma." @laura.mcclune commented: "Can’t wait for this. You guys are so much fun to watch."
