Gemma Atkinson has revealed has had to put her plans to marry Gorka Marquez on hold for now as they simply don’t have the time.

The couple got engaged in February 2021, four years after meeting on Strictly Come Dancing.

They were not paired with each other on the 15th series of the BBC dance show but chemistry brought them together.

While they do intend to eventually tie the knot, it’s more a question of when.

“Gorka is literally on tour all of this year. We’ve only got four days off together,” the ex Emmerdale explained to New magazine.

“He’s got the two Strictly tours back to back, and then he’ll be going on Strictly in the autumn. We don’t even have a minute to sit down and begin making plans!”

When they do finally make it down the aisle however, the 37-year-old said they don’t intend go all out.

Atkinson – who shares two-year-old daughter Mia with the 31-year-old Spanish professional dancer – previously shared how instead of a lavish wedding, they would prefer to try for another baby.

"We’ve said we would prefer to try for another baby rather than have a big, fancy wedding,” she said during her appearance on Vicky Pattison’s podcast The Secret To.

"There are people who will spend £50k on a wedding and you think, ‘Oh my God’.

"Twice we thought about going to the registry office and just doing it and then having a big party.”
