Fans had got excited, but it turns out the couple are not engaged

Gemma Atkinson has been quick to scotch rumours that she’s engaged to Gorka Marquez.

Ex-Emmerdale actress Gemma, 33, was seen wearing a ring on images posted on Instagram.

The couple, who met on Strictly Come Dancing, also talked of their “special day”.

Gemma said: “Work’s done, finished. Reunited with Gorks. It’s a special day today for us, isn’t it?” as Gorka put his finger over his lips.

However, Gemma has since written: “The ring I’m wearing is a crystal on my right hand. Instagram stories flip the camera. No ring on my left hand because I’m not engaged!!!.”

Strictly professional Gorka, 27, had written on Instagram: “A year ago today I met this beautiful human for the first time.
