Gemma’s meal with Ryan (as friends!)

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

GEMMA Atkin­son took a break from her Strictly Come Danc­ing train­ing to en­joy din­ner with for­mer Manchester United foot­baller Ryan Giggs.

The 32-year-old took to In­sta­gram to share a pic­ture of their evening at the leg­endary foot­baller’s restau­rant, Ge­orge’s Din­ing Room & Bar in Wors­ley, Sal­ford.

The soap star was ac­com­pa­nied by her pro­fes­sional dance part­ner Al­jaz Sko­r­janec, as well as two other friends. Gemma wrote on In­sta­gram: “Thanks for hav­ing us! Fab night in Ge­orge’s Restau­rant in­tro­duc­ing @al­jazsko­r­janec to the old school gang ✌ #Mates #Old­skool”.

But some fans were a lit­tle con­fused by the pic­ture, ask­ing why Giggs was at the din­ner.

One user wrote on the In­sta­gram post: “Back to­gether?”

There had been ru­mours that Gemma had been get­ting friendly with Giggs after they were both spot­ted at the Sports Per­son­al­ity of the Year Awards , al­though the pair in­sist they are just friends. The pic­ture also comes after Gemma ruled out ru­mours of a ro­mance with pro dancer Gorka Mar­quez .

The Bury ac­tress pre­vi­ously said the Strictly curse would be a bless­ing for her, be­ing sin­gle.

But speak­ing in OK! mag­a­zine she said the last thing she is look­ing for at the mo­ment is a man and is happy liv­ing with her pet pooches.

She said: “I’m happy to be the crazy dog woman with meals for one.”
