Former 'X Factor' star Alexandra Burke is arguing with her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Gorka Marquez, according to a report

Alexandra Burke is reportedly arguing with her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Gorka Marquez for dating Gemma Atkinson.

The 29-year-old singer has apparently become embroiled in screaming matches with her on-screen partner over his burgeoning relationship with Gemma, according to The Sun newspaper.

Gemma, 32, is partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec, but she has instead struck up a romantic relationship with Gorka, after the duo met during the group rehearsals.

But that dynamic has reportedly upset Alexandra, who is desperate to win the dance competition.

Meanwhile, a source recently insisted that in spite of his romance with Gemma, Gorka also remains committed to winning the coveted 'Strictly' trophy.

The insider previously said: "Gorka is a professional and he is not giving up any of his rehearsal time with Alex to see Gemma.

"Their romance doesn't seem to distract him at all. But it is a sore point for Alex, who wishes she - and their dancing - was his sole focus. It really irritates her to see him flirting with Gemma.

"Alex is at heart a nice girl but has an unshakeable competitive streak."

However, Gorka's romance with Gemma - who previously dated soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo - is said to be the talk of this year's 'Strictly'.

Another source previously explained: "Gorka and Gemma are together. It's the talk of the make-up room.

"Not surprisingly, Alexandra is furious about how it might impact her chances of winning. She's very ambitious and is nervous about it all."
