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.

Gemma was partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec and Gorka with Alexandra Burke on the BBC1 show last year.
