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."
