Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez, 30, told fans he will be cooking something “very nice” on Steph McGovern’s show this afternoon. As he made his way to the studio in Leeds, his wife-to-be Gemma Atkinson, 36, told fans he is “nervous” about cooking live on television.

In view of her 1.6 million followers, she said on her Instagram Story: “Gorka is the chef today on Steph’s Packed Lunch.

“He’s cooking something for you, so tune in from half 12.

“He’s very nervous, bless him, he’ll be fine, he’ll do ace – come on!”

On his Instagram page, he also said: “Happy Monday! I’m just in the car on my way to Steph’s Packed Lunch.

“I’m on the show today so if you tune in, I will be there doing something very very nice so, see you there.”

Gorka’s cooking skills are often praised by his fiancée on her social media page.

Speaking on Steph’s Packed Lunch last month, she said he was going to cook a nice meal for them on their third anniversary.

Gemma began by telling the host they had planned to go away to celebrate the special occasion, but couldn’t due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“We booked babysitters, a hotel and everything and clearly that’s not gonna happen, but we’ve got TV shows and we’ve got nice meals,” she explained.

“Gorka is a fab cook, he can cook a meal.”

The dancer went on to say he had a surprise up his sleeve for Gemma, but couldn’t share the details at that point.

He added: “I have something planned which I can’t say because that will give it away.”

Gemma went on to jokingly brand her partner “sneaky” as he went on to reveal her mum knew about his plan.

Following his admission, Gorka popped the question to his girlfriend of three years during a walk with their dogs on Valentine’s Day.

The radio host flashed her engagement ring in a loved-up snap with her new husband-to-be to announce the news.

“Valentine’s forever… Of course I said yes,” she wrote in the caption.

Their news came exactly three years after they confirmed they are dating in 2018.

The pair grew close during Strictly Come Dancing a year previously.

Gemma and Gorka became parents for the first time in July 2019 with their daughter Mia.

She has since said her mum urged her to wait a while until she has another baby.
