“I’ve been single ages so there wouldn’t be any curse for me. It would be a blessing," the soap actress quipped as the new series kicked off last week.

Gemma is partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec but it's Gorka Marquez - paired up with Alexandra Burke - who she had been getting flirty with.

The Sun reports that the pair hit it off in rehearsal for the celebs first group dance and celebrated Gorka's birthday together.

A show insider told the newspaper: “There is definitely something developing — everyone can see there’s an obvious attraction.

“They couldn’t keep away from each other at group rehearsals. Gorka even invited Gemma to his birthday meal and they sat together the whole night.”

Meanwhile, Mollie King and her pro partner AJ Pritchard have also been romantically linked just days after the launch.

Like Gemma, Mollie wouldn't rule out a ballroom fling.

"You never know I guess. You never know," she said.

The Saturdays' singer told the Daily Star: "We’re going to be spending so much time with them [the pros], I hope we get on really well. I’m sure we will.

“There are always rumours, hopefully I won’t be getting any of those!

“The salsa and rumba could help bring out a more sexy side of me."

Strictly Come Dancing 2017 will return to BBC One on Saturday nights from September 23 with the first live show.
