This is not surprising as the actress is known to have dated a lot of high profile men, from Rhys Kinslow to Cleveland Campbell, Alan Smith, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ollie Foster – there are other names yet unmentioned.
Despite all these men she has been linked to, this beauty is yet to tie the knot. But, she is definitely not available; sorry guys! This gorgeous star has given her heart to the Strictly Come Dancing choreographer, Gorka Marquez. The two met on the show in 2017 where Gorka served as Alexandra Burke’s dance partner.
Gemma and Gorka confirmed their relationship on Valentine’s Day earlier this year (2018). Rumors did make rounds that the two were engaged, but Gemma was quick to put them to sleep by stating that the sighted ring was on her right hand and not on her left. In a nutshell, she isn’t engaged to Gorka or anyone as at the time of this writing. Nonetheless, the two live together in Manchester, England.
Is She Related To Rowan Atkinson?
Obviously, the surname, Atkinson has become synonymous with the famous on-screen comedy character Mr. Bean, played by renowned actor, Rowan Atkinson. The Brit has spent the better part of his career portraying the well-known character and he’s super famous.
So, one look at Gemma’s surname is likely to bring up the question of whether she is related to the comedy star. Though the Hollyoaks star is British like Rowan Atkinson, the two stars are not related to each other. Gemma Atkinson has spoken on the confusion her surname is fond of bringing up whenever she meets people. The situation just happens to be a coincidence of surname.
