‘I feel sex­ier in my track­suit bot­toms!’

Closer (UK) - - Interview -

As a self-con­fessed gym ad­dict who reg­u­larly shares work­out snaps of her toned fig­ure on­line, Gemma Atkin­son is far from her com­fort zone when it comes to slip­ping into skimpy Strictly out­fits.

Key 103 ra­dio host Gemma, 32, says: “It feels to­tally alien to me to be all dressed up, and I’m hav­ing night­mares about trip­ping over as I walk up the stairs on live TV. I feel sex­ier in my track­suit bot­toms and T-shirt than in a se­quin dress as it’s so alien to me.

“On pa­per I’m very fit, but on that dance floor it all goes out the win­dow. There have been a few wob­bles on the What­sapp group us con­tes­tants have, but we’re all re­ally ex­cited. I’m try­ing to eat very healthily at the mo­ment so I have enough en­ergy for all the re­hearsals, which is hard be­cause I’m hun­gry all the time since we started train­ing.”

And the for­mer Hol­lyoaks and Em­merdale ac­tress ad­mits it won’t take much to boost her non-ex­is­tent dance knowl­edge, say­ing: “Be­fore Strictly the only rou­tine I knew was Gang­nam Style!”
