Gemma Atkinson eats chips and curry sauce after Strictly rehearsals

Gemma Atkinson has been indulging in chips and curry sauce after her gruelling "Strictly Come Dancing" rehearsals.

The 32-year-old actress was keen to get into shape ahead of her debut on the ballroom and latin show last week in a bid to look dazzling in her glamorous sequinned dress, but it looks like the blonde beauty has given up on healthy eating now, as she has been tucking into the traditional takeaway treat - most popular in Northern England - after working up a sweat with her professional dance partner Aljaž Škorjanec in training.

Taking to her Instagram account on Wednesday (27.09.17), the former "Hollyoaks" star uploaded a photograph of her greasy grub smothered in the hot condiment and a beer on the side alongside the caption: "Winning."

This coming Saturday (30.09.17), Gemma and Aljaž will be dancing the Waltz and it seems the nerves have already taken over.

She wrote on Instagram: "So on Saturday we're dancing The Waltz to "Un Giorno Per Noi" by Josh Groban, It's elegant, classy, romantic and Sophisticated... Clearly 100% meant for me that ain't it?

Before debuting on stage last week, the actress admitted she struggled to master the steps and almost burst into tears because she was so frustrated.

She said last week: "I nearly cried on the way home.

"I thought I'd got the dance nailed and I tried to do the steps and I kept doing them wrong. I hate letting people down, and I could see know knackered Aljaz was.

"I knew what to do in my head but I couldn't do it with my feet, to the stage I just sat on the floor and went I can't do this!"

And the 32-year-old star's confidence took another knock when she asked her sister Nina if she wanted to come down to London to watch the live show in three weeks" time and she politely declined.
