Inside Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez's romantic spa getaway to celebrate their engagement

GEMMA Atkinson and fiancé Gorka Marquez enjoyed a luxurious spa weekend to celebrate their engagement.

The lovebirds had been patiently waiting for three months to mark the moment Strictly star Gorka popped the question.

And they were gifted with a two-night stay at the five-star Rockcliffe Hall spa hotel in Darlington to enjoy some quality time together.

Gemma shared pictures from their trip on Instagram and wrote: "Finally got to celebrate our engagement! The wonderful @rockliffe_hall kindly invited us to come and stay for 2 nights and it was bliss!

"Two days of relaxation, wonderful food, nature trails and an incredible Spa and Gym. Thanks for having us guys! Your staff are wonderful 🙌🏼 #gifted #thankyou."

They made the most of the facilities and indulged in delicious scones with cream and jam washed down with a good brew.

Strictly star Gorka revealed plans for his dream wedding back in March.

The Spanish dancer, 30, proposed on Valentine's Day and told C4 show Steph's Packed Lunch: "I had it planned a week earlier…

"I had a surprise for the anniversary but obviously with covid and everything … so I postponed it a week and it was on Valentine’s Day.

"It was good, I think it worked in my favour."

Host Steph then asked him whether he and Gemma had made any plans for their wedding yet, with Gorka replying: "In my head, I had it planned maybe for next year.

"We want to make the wedding for all the family and friends."

He added: "We want to plan it properly and have all the family from Spain, all the family from here, friends and everyone coming together."
