Gorka posted a behind the scenes video of Gemma to his some 478,000 Instagram followers.

The clip showed the former soap actress rehearsing her upcoming Strictly routine for the Strictly Christmas special.

He said: “How did you deal with this for 13 weeks? Dancing?”

Then to an oblivious Gemma he asked: “You OK Gemma?” and burst out laughing.

The cheeky dig comes a day after Gemma shared that she was struggling to cope after getting a worrying health update about her dog Norman.

She posted a picture of the glum looking pooch and said that she’d been told he was overweight and needed to cut back on his food intake.

She wrote: “I just can’t cope with Norman’s human looking face.

“Been told he’s overweight for his size so cut down on after tea treats and boy is he sulking.”

Elsewhere the couple have been sharing life updates on their new YouTube channel.

Recently Gorka hinted that he may not be as keen on Gemma’s dogs Ollie and Norman as she is.
