The couple have been dating for around a year and in a recent interview with Hello! magazine, Gemma had nothing but nice things to say about her partner: “He’s got a really loving, close relationship with his mum, which I absolutely love because I think the way he has been brought up has made him really mature,”
She continued: “Like when we were going on our first holiday, I thought I was going to have to wrap myself in a sarong by the pool. I didn’t need to do any of that with Gorks, as he just tells me every day how lovely he thinks I am. He kisses me all the time. It’s nice to have that, because you feel that if the person you love is happy, then you’re happy.”
