Soon after Gemma finished her daily home work-out, the star took the opportunity to show her Instagram followers where she exercises at home while addressing one query about her home that she often receives from her fans.

Speaking to her 1.4 million followers, Gemma began to explain: “Loads of you ask about why I’ve got some pictures in the gym.

“And I got these pictures without saying anything to Gorka.”

She then explained how she didn’t hold back when Gorka wasn’t too keen on her collection.

The presenter continued: “He was a bit like, ‘I don’t want pictures in the gym’. And I was like, ‘Excuse me?'”

While Gemma went on to reveal why she wants pictures on display in her home gym, the host showed an image of the legendary fictional boxer Rocky Balboa hanging up on her wall.

The Emmerdale star confessed: “Rocky, is one of my favourite films, Rocky IV, and this is a famous quote.

“The world ain’t all rainbows and sunshine quote. Obviously that’s got to go in there.”

She then moved on to show one of the items she wears, which had her baby daughter Mia’s name printed onto it.

Gemma added: “The best never quit. I put Mia’s name on mine just to keep me going because obviously she’s watching me.”

Soon after, the soap actress showed her followers a picture of “two incredible athletes” which was also hung up.

Gemma went on to explain: “These two, Ronda Rousey and Holly Holmes. Two incredible female athletes, obviously Ronda paved the way for female UFC.
