Alexandra Burke has confirmed that her Strictly Come Dancing partner Gorka Marquez isn't dating Gemma Atkinson.

Appearing on today's (October 12) Lorraine, Alexandra was asked about the romance rumours and joked about how she's apparently "fuming and raging" over the whole thing.

"Apparently, that's happening. I don't know where he's got the time to have anything going on, to be fair. You literally can't believe anything you read. You can't believe those kinds of things," she explained.

"It's all fun and there's a lot of love with every single contestant that's on the show and every pro as well.

"For me, my concentration is making sure Gorka and I are fully in tune with each other and concentrating on what we want to do, and we're having so much fun at the moment, we won't let anything get in the way at all. We're focused is what I'm saying."

Gorka himself has recently denied that he is dating Gemma. "We hang out together and do some workouts and I think she is beautiful. But we are just friends," he noted.
