Strictly Come Dancing's Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Marquez have become used to a long-distance relationship since they began dating at the start of the year. 

But this week, the couple had the chance to enjoy some much-needed time together. Gemma and Gorka are among the stars on board the Strictly Come Dancing cruise, and have been documenting their trip on social media.

Hello! Magazine © Copyright ¡HOLA! Hello! Magazine Gorka posted a loved-up photo of the pair relaxing on the deck of the ship, writing next to it: "Finally some Spanish sun!!" In another recent photo, the pair looked smart at a black tie dinner, which the professional dancer simply captioned: "Date night."

The couple have been together since teaming up on the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 tour, and Gemma has previously spoken out about how the long distance between them can actually be a blessing.

"He's very funny, I like the fact that he's funny he makes me laugh and because he's in London and I'm in Manchester I think that's a good thing because you both have to make an effort to see each other," she told Manchester Evening News.

Gemma and Gorka are joined on the cruise by AJ Pritchard, Chloe Hewitt, Dianne Buswell and her soap star boyfriend, Emmerdale star Anthony Quinlan. Anthony even celebrated his birthday on board the ship.
