Gorka uploaded a video of the two of them in a restaurant where he filmed his beaau about to tuck into her food.

The Strictly Come Dancing professional said: “How to make her feel better… With a nice brunch and a nice piece of cake.”

“Vegan that cake,” Gemma added.

Gorka asked his partner: “Feeling better now?”

“Yeah,” Gemma said as she smiled to the camera.

Yesterday, Gemma uploaded a post to Instagram where she revealed she recently ended up in A&E after being in pain.

The beauty explained she was diagnosed with another kidney infection yesterday, her fourth so far during her pregnancy.

Talking about the infection, she said: “The first two I knew nothing about, the third one floored me and I actually ended up in A&E with it back in early April.

“Apparently some woman are just prone to them (I’m clearly not a doctor but I was told it’s because our uterus is so close to the bladder.”

She went on: “It apparently sits directly on top of it and the increased weight can block the drainage of urine causing an infection) The joys!”

Gemma added: “The NHS have been wonderful in looking after me but in the nicest way possible I don’t want to see any of them again until I’m due to deliver.”
