Gemma Atkinson has been spotted kissing professional dancer Gorka Marquez in the Strictly plot twist that we all expected.

So whoever had bets riding on these two not being in a relationship need to pay up, because it seems like all those romance rumours are pretty much true.

In pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, the 33-year-old soap star was seen on Thursday 11 January having a cheeky smooch with Gorka, 27, as they waited for a taxi back to their hotel following rehearsals for the Strictly Come Dancing tour.

Gorka was looking bang on trend in a mustard yellow beanie and black jacket, whilst Gemma was wearing a hoody and a backpack.

Rumours have followed these two for months now, after they were spotted out and about together several times during Strictly’s 15th series last year.

But it’s not all been smooth sailing for the pair, after they allegedly had a very public spat during the last couple of weeks of the show, and rumours of a rift between Gemma and Gorka’s Strictly dance partner Alexandra Burke continued to rear its ugly head.

Alexandra, 29, said of the rumours: ‘No truth to any of it. The shame of it is, we all get along like a little family.

‘To read that, it’s quite heartbreaking. It’s hurtful to read, but it’s the nature of the beast. Unfortunately these things happen.’

As for Gemma and Gorka’s little fall out, the actress was allegedly furious after she thought she’d seen Gorka flirting with a fellow dancer at a Strictly party in Blackpool in November.

The couple then reportedly went on to have a row at the party, which was apparently loud enough for fellow guests to overhear.

But they soon managed to settle any differences as they were spotted embracing on the dancefloor at the end of the Strictly results show just two days later.

And now it seems, after all those ups and downs, these two might have made it official.

Metro.co.uk have contacted reps for Gemma and Gorka for comment.
