The 29-year-old star appeared on the BBC show between 2016 and 2018, and he’s eager to return to the ‘Strictly’ dancefloor as soon as possible.
He told the Manchester Evening News newspaper:
‘I’d love to be back and I’d love to be back on the the dance floor with a partner.
‘It’s a great team at ‘Strictly’ and my little one will be able to see me dance’.
Gorka met his partner Gemma Atkinson on the show in 2017, and the loved-up couple now have a six-month-old daughter called Mia together.
Gorka is proud of how hard Gemma has worked in order to regain her pre-pregnancy figure.
‘I’m very proud of her. She couldn’t train after giving birth and had to go to a healthy diet with juices and rest and recovery.
‘She’s had people saying ‘that’s not you, that’s pictures of you before’ but she’s been training’.
Gorka is also keen for his daughter to see him in action on the dance floor.
But in the long term, the professional star wants his child to chase her own ambitions, rather than necessarily following in his footsteps.
Asked whether he wants Mia to follow his path, Gorka said:
‘I’d like her to do whatever she wants to do but she already has a lot of rhythm.
‘Because of my job and Gemma’s job on the radio we both love music’.
