Gemma Atkinson has hit back at cruel trolls targeting her online and saying her fiancé Gorka Marquez will "leave her".
The former Hollyoaks star, 37, took to social media to document her latest workout, writing: "By this point my coordination, balance and energy had well and truly gone.
"Still, I got it done! 1 min of each for 20 mins with the only note from my trainer 'Go Hard' Can’t be a short and sweet Saturday sweat," she told her millions of followers.
While the actress received plenty of positive messages supporting her workout and her message – some were feeling less kind.
The mum-of-one was told by one commenter that she is only working out 'to keep Gorka' while another cruelly said: "Her bloke will cheat on her if she stops training", The Mirror reports.
But following the abuse, she hit back at the trolls while sharing some of the messages to her Instagram story.
She wrote: "We seem to have gone back a few decades [face palm emoji]."
Gemma then added: "Note to anyone starting out with training/health regime. Doing it for anyone but yourself is a set up for failure. Do it for YOU! YOU deserve to feel YOUR best. Shut out the noise and crack on."
The day after she dealt with the trolls, a self-care day was clearly needed for Gemma, with the actress posting a photo to her Instagram which read "Take care of yourself. You're the only you you've got" along with a smiley face.
Captioning the post, she wrote: "Self care?? On a Monday?? But we have too much to do!…. EXACTLY!! That’s why it’s essential to be in the right frame of mind to do it all.
"If everyone and everything around you is at peace while you’re in pieces something is wrong. Self care isn’t selfish, it’s necessary"
Her followers were quick to approve of her self-care message, with one saying: "Needed to see this today."
Another wrote "Love love love this", while a third said "Taking me ages to learn this one but I’m getting there".
Last month, Gemma and Gorka, 31, postponed their wedding after their busy work schedules got in the way, with the pair so busy they can't even sit down to begin making plans.
Speaking exclusively to OK! , Gemma said she and her Spanish beau are still yet to set a date on the big day.
"Gorka is on tour literally all of this year," Gemma explains, "He’s got the two Strictly tours back-to-back, and then he’ll be going back onto Strictly in the autumn.
"We don’t even have a minute to sit down and begin making plans!"
The pair got together after both reaching the Strictly final back in 2017 – even though they weren't paired up for the series.
Instead, sparks flew behind-the-scenes, and the pair have been together ever since – with Gorka popping the question on Valentine's Day, 2021.
The couple also share their two-year-old daughter Mia.
