Strictlys Gorka Marquez swaps for new partner in video despite high score

Strictly Come Dancing hunk Gorka Marquez has shared a sweet dancing video – but his partner isn’t who you might expect.

The pro dancer is paired with BBC presenter Helen Skelton and after a somewhat rocky start – which saw Helen flee rehearsals in tears due to nerves – the pair wowed the judges last week.

After dancing to Hopelessly Devoted To You for Movie Week, they received a score of 31, including three 8s.

But it wasn’t Helen, 38, in Gorka’s latest Instagram clip. Rather, it was former contestant and his other half, Gemma Atkinson.

Gemma, 37, took part in Strictly in 2017 and was partnered with Aljaz – but fell in love with Gorka and went on to have a baby with him.

The latest couple is believed to be contestant Molly Rainford and newly single pro Nikita Kuzmin.

At last night’s NTAs in London the sweet twosome “only had eyes for each other” and both left the bash just after 1 am.

Nikita, 24, recently split from his long-term girlfriend but was said to be “attached at the hip” to singer and presenter Molly during the after-party.

An onlooker told The Sun: “They spent time together with some of their Strictly co-stars but they seemed to only have eyes for each other. They kept staring at each other and were being very tactile.

“When the night was over Nikita and Molly ordered Ubers separately but it appeared they were heading to the same place together as she was speaking to him about where they were going next.”

Another source said that the pair are both “stunning and single” and it spokes volumes that Niki was prepared to “so public” with someone as he is normally so private.

CBBC presenter Molly, who is partnered with Carlos Gu, has previously insisted though that she is not looking for love on the show and wants to focus on her career.

She said: “I’m only 21, so I’m not looking for a relationship on Strictly. That’s not in the picture right now.

“My parents don’t want me to be distracted or worrying about boys just yet. I’m single and don’t plan on changing it.”
