Gemma Atkinson has been spotted undergoing seemingly ‘painful’ treatment following her injury during fiance Gorka Marquez’s tour.
The 37-year-old Hollyoaks star took to social media to document the surgery with fans, where she was seen with tiny needles inserted into her neck.
It comes after Gorka was recently forced to drop out of the serious professional team’s upcoming professional tour after suffering an injury.
However, Gemma assured fans that her treatment was in fact “quite relaxing”.
Along with a moment of herself during the surgery, she shared: “It looked a lot more painful than it was! It was actually quite relaxing.”
It’s certainly been an eventful couple of weeks for Gemma and her partner Gorka.
Earlier this month, Gorka revealed that he will no longer be on the Serious tour this summer.
The 31-year-old Spanish dancer explained that doctors warned him not to show up after suffering a serious injury.
As a result, Gorka will be replaced by Cameron Lombard on tour.
In a statement, the star explained: “I am saddened to announce that, on the advice of my doctor, I have had to withdraw from the ‘Strict Gifts’ tour.
“During my ‘Serious Professional’ tour, I suffered an injury, and with treatment and care, I will continue my journey for the final few weeks of the tour.
“Unfortunately last week I had an injury that caused me pain and a lot of difficulty, even walking.
“Following advice from my doctors and healthcare, I have had to stop participating in this new tour.”
Gorka continued: “I’m so sad that I won’t be able to perform and dance again with @maisymithofficial (and the rest of the cast!) But I know the show will be great and the audience will truly enjoy it. .
“Now is the time for rest and rehabilitation so I can be ready for Serious 2022. All the love and keep dancing!!!!”
Gorka has returned home to her partner Gemma and their two-year-old daughter Mia.
Meanwhile, the couple had previously been forced to postpone their wedding to accommodate Gorka’s strict touring schedule.
Gemma told New magazine: ‘Gorka has really been on tour all year. We only had four days off together.
“He’s had two tours of Serious Returns, and then he’ll continue Serious in the fall. We don’t even have a minute to sit down and start planning! ”
Gemma and Gorka got engaged in February 2021, 4 years after meeting on the serious prom TV show.
