Gemma Atkinson hits out after unearthed topless photo sparks criticism ‘It’s very sad’

Gemma Atkinson reveals Mia is having her first ever cold

Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Gemma Atkinson recently took to Instagram and shared a throwback snap from her earlier years modelling. The mum-of-one has since hit out after a social media user appeared to take aim at the topless photo.

In the snap, Gemma can be seen on a beach sporting bikini bottoms as her blonde tresses were swept over her shoulders.

After sharing the model picture on her Instagram stories, the 36-year-old shared a screenshot of the criticism she received.

The person in question wrote: “Are you going to explain that to Mia?”

Gemma replied: “She’ll see everything that I’ve done. I’m proud of it all.

“I’ve had an incredible life travelling all over the world for most of it and the lifestyle I have now and what Mia has is partly due to my days back then.”

The social media user responded: “I’d prefer to raise my daughter that she isn’t an object to be purchased.”

Gemma explained that it was “sad” to see people place “labels” on people over their chosen profession.

“That’s great for you. I’m raising Mia with an open mind,” Gemma said.

“Just because you did or do glamour modelling doesn’t mean you can be purchased.

“It’s very sad to put a label on someone because of their job.”

Gemma added: “But hey, guess that’s the world we live in.”

She finished off the post with the caption: “2020 ladies and gentleman.”

Gemma was first introduced into the acting world at the age of 17 when she landed the role of Lisa Hunter in Hollyoaks.

After five years, the actress turned her attention to modelling making lingerie appearances for various magazines including FHM, Loaded and Zoo.

The mum-of-one later took a break from her modelling career, and returned to the soap world in 2015.

She played Tamzin Bayle on Casualty in 2011 before landing the role of Carly Hope on Emmerdale in 2015.

Gemma headed to the Strictly dance floor in 2017 where she met her boyfriend Gorka.

The couple’s relationship has gone from strength to strength and they welcomed their daughter Mia last year.

Gorka has currently been away from home while he is competing in Strictly Come Dancing 2020 with his partner Maisie Smith.

Gemma admitted she is doing well “on her own” but she is missing her professional dancer beau and is looking forward to him returning home.
