Former Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson has responded to claims that she is reportedly “feuding” with her fiance’s dance partner Nikita Kanda.
The 38-year-old, who first met Gorka Marquez during the 2017 series of the dance programme, appeared to be in full support as they both appeared on Strictly’s It Takes Two this evening.
It comes after reports showed that Gemma had not followed Nikita back on Instagram, whereas Nikita follows and likes all of Gemma’s posts on social media.
A Strictly fan told The Sun: “It’s so weird that Gemma isn’t following Nikita – especially as Nikita likes all of Gemma’s posts.”
The actress posted a snapshot of Gorka and Nikita on the television screen, captioning it with: “Team Gorkita” along with a hands up emoji.
