Gemma Atkinson dresses down in jeans and wellies as former Strictly star ditches the glam during surprise appearance at CarFest

She’s better suited to the ballroom floor, but former Strictly Come Dancing star Gemma Atkinson made a surprise appearance at CarFest on Sunday.

The actress, 37, cut a casual figure in a black waffled sweatshirt and jeans while she sat on a grass chair at the festival.

She swept her long blonde tresses back in a ponytail revealing a simple glam palette of makeup.

The radio presenter looked every inch ready for the weekend in a pair of black wellies. 

She completed her look by accesorising with a gold pendant necklace as she held a microphone up to her face. 

Earlier this year Gemma revealed that she’s postponed her wedding to Gorka Márquez due to both of their busy schedules – after saying she’d rather try for another baby than plan lavish nuptials.

The actress and the professional dancer, 31, got engaged in February 2021, four years after meeting on Strictly Come Dancing and share daughter Mia, two.

She has now told how Gorka is busy for the rest of the year with the Strictly tour schedule which means they can’t fit it in this year.

She told New magazine: ‘Gorka is literally on tour all of this year. We’ve only got four days off together.

‘He’s got the two Strictly tours back to back, and then he’ll be going on Strictly in the autumn. We don’t even have a minute to sit down and begin making plans!’

When they do finally make it down the aisle however, Gemma said they don’t intend go all out.

It comes after she previously shared how instead of a lavish wedding, they would prefer to try for another baby.

‘We’ve said we would prefer to try for another baby rather than have a big, fancy wedding,’ she said during a recent appearance on Vicky Pattison’s podcast The Secret To.

‘There are people who will spend £50k on a wedding and you think, ‘Oh my God’.

‘Twice we thought about going to the registry office and just doing it and then having a big party.’

She added on the podcast that they would like to have a small wedding abroad but  admitted she’s done ‘zero planning’ for it so far because of Covid.

Gemma also told how she hasn’t picked her bridesmaids yet or her wedding dress. 

The mum-of-one, who is currently a presenter on Hits Radio, said her and Gorka have almost gone to the registry office twice now and ‘just done it’ – but added that her family would be upset if they did that.
