“And I remember saying, ‘Ooh that Spanish one is a bit of alright!'”
Gemma acknowledged that because “she didn’t know him” she did not fancy him, but also spoke of the “embarrassing” start to their relationship.
She said: “It was a bit embarrassing because it was in the paper that we were seeing each other before we were, and I remember thinking, ‘Christ I hope he doesn’t think I’m going round saying [it] to people’.”
The former Hollyoaks actress then asked one of Gorka’s friends to let him know that she had not been spreading rumours about them.
