Gemma Atkinson doesn't want to get a boyfriend at the moment because she's happy being a "crazy dog woman."
Gemma Aktinson is happy to be a "crazy dog woman with meals for one."
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' star is adamant she's not looking for love on the ballroom and latin show, which is known for forming romantic relationships between contestants and the professionals off screen, as she's enjoying the single life and gets enough companionships from her two dogs Norman and Olly.
Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: "The last thing I'm looking for at the minute is a boyfriend. I'm happy to be the crazy dog woman with meals for one. I live with Norman, who is a sproodle and Olly, a working cocker spaniel. They're like my kids."
The 32-year-old actress was rumoured to be getting cosy with Gorka Marquez but she's adamant there's nothing going on between them and they barely see each other because he's partnered with Alexandra Burke and she's with Aljaž Škorjanec.
She explained: "There was an online poll that asked who I should get with and they said Gorka, so it started from there! I've only seen him for the launch and live shows. He's a friend and the only thing we've shared is his guacamole recipe."
And the former 'Emmerdale' beauty is certain the "'Strictly' curse" - which sees contestants and professionals fall for one another - won't strike her and Aljaž, who is married to dancing queen Janette Manrara, because they just sit around burping.
She said: "I thought it would be [awkward] but it's not like that with Aljaž because he's my mate. Hopefully the dance will look intimate when necessary but before and after rehearsals we're sat around eating Nando's, burping and having a laugh."
But if there is one thing Gemma is taking seriously it's her natural lifestyle.
She added: "We all smelt like digestive biscuits because that's what fake tan smells like. I had to ask what was in it because I don't want chemicals on my body, but it's a vegan spray tan, so it's all good."
