After watching Steph and guest Alex Brooker tuck into edible insects, Gemma was wary when Steph teased her about a surprise. 

Steph introduced the segment: “Gemma we’ve got a bit of a surprise for you actually.”

“I’m worried now,” she replied before Steph reassured: “No, you don’t have to eat anything.

“This is actually a lovely thing because Gorka is working, he’s doing Strictly so he sent a little message for you.”
