Where is Gorka Marquez from and is the Strictly dancer married?

Gorka Marquez is one of the leading men of Strictly Come Dancing 2020 – and is now even in the finals with Maisie Smith.

He’s had an impressive run on the show, holding the record for most 10s achieved in a single series thanks to his 2017 partnership with Alexandra Burke.

So will he be able to recreate the magic tonight? Not too much longer to find out.

But while he’s twirling around the dancefloor with his EastEnders partner, Gorka has two girls who have stolen his heart – girlfriend Gemma Atkinson and daughter, Mia.

Here’s what you’ve been asking about him.

Where is Gorka Marquez from?

Gorka is originally from Bilbao in Spain, and has been dancing since the age of 12.

Among his achievements, he represented the country in the World Latin Championships in 2010.

He joined Strictly Come Dancing as a professional in 2016.

Who is Gorka Marquez dating?

Gorka is dating former Hollyoaks actress Gemma Atkinson, after meeting her while she took part in Strictly in 2017.

Gemma was partnered up with Gorka’s close friend Aljaz Skorjanec, and once the show was over they went public with their romance on Valentine’s Day.

Since then, they have moved in together, and have been inseparable – until he was forced to move out of the house temporarily to fit with Covid guidelines for the 2020 series.

They’ve only been seen dancing once together, on the Christmas special in 2019 – in a full circle moment for the couple.

Does Gorka Marquez have children?

Yes – he has one daughter, an adorable one-year-old girl named Mia.

Gemma and Gorka welcomed their little one in July 2019 – and she made her Strictly debut that December, appearing in a video as her parents performed together for the Christmas show.

She’s even been sending him support over the course of Strictly 2020 – and left him in tears as she cheered on her Papa from home with mum Gemma.

Strictly Come Dancing is available on BBC iPlayer.
