Gemma Atkinson asks fans for advice amid ‘struggles’ as guest on Steph’s Packed Lunch

Gemma Atkinson, 36, is a regular guest on Steph McGovern’s show and occasionally helps the presenter host segments. Today, she revealed she struggles to read the autocue and asked fans if she should wear her glasses to help her.

Speaking from her dressing room, she told fans: “Back on Steph’s Packed Lunch today, getting myself ready… well trying to.

“I struggle with the autocue sometimes, because it’s quite far away.”

The mother-of-one then put her glasses on to show her 1.6 million followers what she’d look like.

She asked: “Do I do glasses or not? Because, if I have them, I’ll have to have them for the whole show.”

Gemma then squinted as she demonstrated how she reads the autocue without her glasses on.

The former actress followed up her post, telling fans she will opt for spectacles after their advice.

“You all say glasses, so thanks, I’m going to wear them,” she added.

Gemma swapped her reading glasses for big sunglasses and joked: “I’m gonna wear these ones.”

Steph announced Gemma will be joining the show as a regular guest back in September.

In January, fans queried where she had been after a break from the programme.

On whether she’d be returning, she said on Instagram: “Possibly… It’s hard at the minute with covid.

“I go straight into my radio studio after which isn’t really fair to @wesbutters I mean he annoys me, but I don’t want him getting sick.”

Gemma juggles her work commitments with being a mum to 22-month-old daughter Mia.

The former Hollyoaks star shares her first born with Strictly Come Dancing professional Gorka Marquez.

The pair got together after competing on the show back in 2017 and confirmed their romance the following Valentine’s Day.

In July 2019, they welcomed Mia to the world via emergency C-section.

Back in February, Gemma announced Gorka had proposed to her during a stroll on Valentine’s Day.

Discussing wedding plans on Steph’s show last month, she said: “We’re obviously not going to do it this year given everything that is going on.

“The only thing we have agreed on so far is that we are going to do it abroad.

“Gorka wants his family to be able to order drinks at the bar and understand the waiters.

“His family don’t speak English and my family don’t speak Spanish, so we’ve said that we’ll meet halfway.”
