Gorka Marquez thinks Gemma Atkinson is a "beautiful girl".

The Spanish dancer has struck up a close friendship with the blonde beauty during their time together on "Strictly Come Dancing", but Gorka has insisted that, contrary to widespread speculation, they are not currently dating.

Speaking amid the romance rumours, Gorka said: "She is a beautiful girl and she's lovely.

"But we are just friends, like I'm friends with everyone on the show."

Gorka said that he and Gemma, 32, have already been out together, but he refuted suggestions that their friendship has already turned romantic.

He told new! magazine: "It's true that we've had some drinks together and stuff like that, but nothing else."

Gemma, on the other hand, recently insisted she doesn't wish to discuss her love life, because she's grown tired of talking about who she's dating over the last 15 years.

The former "Emmerdale" actress - who previous dated soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo - explained: "I really don't want to talk about my love life to be honest.

"I don't feel I need to respond to anyone about what I'm doing.

"I've had to talk about who I'm dating for the past 15 years. You've got to take everything with a pinch of salt."

Gemma is actually partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec on the BBC show, and she recently admitted to being fearful of gaining weight during her time on the programme.

The actress said she's been gorging on snacks to help get herself through her gruelling training schedule.

She recently shared: "I must be the only contestant who hasn't lost weight on the show as all we do all day is eat.

"We are so hungry with all the exercise I'm eating a lot more than usual."
