ALEXAN­DRA’S ‘SCREAM­ING MATCHES’ OVER GEMMA

Closer (UK) - - News -

She’s been wow­ing the judges and is among the favourites for this year’s Strictly Come Danc­ing along­side pro dancer Gorka Mar­quez. But re­ports have emerged of in-fight­ing back­stage as Alexan­dra Burke clashes with Gorka over his grow­ing ro­mance with her ri­val Gemma Atkin­son. The for­mer X Fac­tor win­ner is said to be hav­ing “full-blown scream­ing matches” dur­ing re­hearsals with her dance part­ner.

Last month, Closer re­ported that Gorka, 27, and ac­tress Gemma, 32, had been en­joy­ing a string of se­cret dates and that Alexan­dra, 29, had been left fum­ing, fear­ing it could af­fect her chances of win­ning.

Gorka pre­vi­ously de­scribed the dy­nam­ics be­tween him and Alexan­dra, say­ing that she was sur­pris­ingly bossy, de­spite him be­ing the pro­fes­sional.

He re­vealed, “She shouts more at me than I shout at her. She brings the beast out of me.”

Alexan­dra pre­vi­ously added: “He’s scared of me. There was one time that he stopped mid-dance and I shouted and I screamed at him, say­ing, ‘You are meant to be a pro, don’t ever stop.’ He was like, ‘Whoa, OK girl. I will never stop again.”’

Alexan­dra has pre­vi­ously hit back at claims there was any an­i­mos­ity be­tween her­self and Gorka, say­ing, “Ap­par­ently I am (fum­ing and rag­ing)! I don’t know where he has time to have any­thing go­ing on!”
