Gorka, 31, and former Coronation Street actress Katie will take to the dance floor to perform the Tango, but Gorka’s fiancée won’t be tuning in.
Taking to her Instagram Story on Saturday afternoon, Gemma posted a photo of Gorka and Katie and wished them good luck.
She captioned the snap: “Speaking of hangovers, I’m at a 40th tonight so will miss these two smashing that Tango! (I’ve seen it and it’s ACE!).
“have the best time @katiecmcglynn @gorka_marquez,” the mum-of-one added alongside plenty of raised hands emojis.
Gemma met Spanish dancer Gorka back in 2017 when she competed on the 15th series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The couple welcomed their baby girl Mia in July 2019 and announced their engagement in February of this year.
However, Gemma was enjoying a well-deserved night off from mummy duties as she also shared a video of herself tucking into a cocktail as she got ready for her pal’s birthday party and described it as “mum’s night out”.
Meanwhile, Katie recently said that she felt like she could ‘be herself’ with Gorka within hours of meeting him.
Referring to any sexy dance moves they would have to perform, the soap star told The Sun: “That’s the best way to be with that kind of stuff. I know it’s not exactly the same, but because I’m an actress, I have to kiss people a lot… well not a lot.”
However, Gorka quickly responded: “You don’t kiss in dancing,” as she replied: “No I know. But I’m used to being in awkward situations and I’m not awkward, I’m really chilled with stuff like that.
“So we’ll just ramp it up and then when we get off probably laugh,” Katie added.
