GEMMA Atkinson denied rumours that she had a feud with Katie McGlynn, Gorka’s dancing partner on Strictly.
During an awkward interview on Steph’s Packed Lunch, Gemma said Katie is ‘lovely’ and encouraged the pair to hang out.
Gorka was asked by Steph about the pairs rehearsals.
He said: “Obviously when you come to the show, the show is very demanding, as John knows already and Gemma knows from the past.
“The more hours you can do the better because there’s so many things you need to think about, especially with someone like Katie who never danced before, no dance experience.
“Not having enough time it’s a real difficulty, but even if she had two hours she used to come with positive energy to training.”
