The 31-year-old ac­tress cur­rently plays Car­ley Hope in the ITV soap drama Emmerdale, but it’s her filthy per­for­mance from a pre­vi­ous role which has at­tracted at­ten­tion.

In 2005, Chan­nel 4 soap Hol­lyoaks ran a late-night ver­sion of its main­stream show which in­cluded the cast shag­ging, swear­ing and fight­ing.

And Gemma’s char­ac­ter, Lisa Hunter, was seen get­ting to grips with co-star Mar­cus Pa­tric, who played Ben Davis.

The raunchy clip shows Gemma reach­ing into his trousers and sim­u­lat­ing a tight-gripped hand­job.

Footage of the X-rated scene was quickly up­loaded to the in­ter­net af­ter the first aired but it has now resur­faced and is pre­dicted to reach new heights by the end of the week.

An ex­pert said: “We pre­dict the clip will top a mil­lion views as men will go crazy for this clip of Gemma looking like she’s pulling pud!”
