Gemma Atkinson's chocolatey Christmas

Gemma Atkinson's chocolatey Christmas

Gemma Atkinson says one of her favourite things about Christmas is eating Quality Street.

The 'Emmerdale' actress has confessed that despite being very passionate about health and fitness, one of her favourite things about the festive season is being able to tuck into calorific treats without any guilt.

She said: "I love Christmas dinner and Quality Street.

"I'm always saying to my fella, 'When's it too early to put the Quality Street out?' You know, around the house."

The 31-year-old star also revealed that even though he's a personal trainer, her boyfriend Olly Foster can't resist indulging in treats at Christmas time too.

Asked if he helps her to follow a healthy diet, she added: "Oh gosh, no. He's worse than me!"

Meanwhile, the blonde beauty recently confessed she wants to have a baby before she turns 32.

Speaking about how her seeing her co-star's baby has made her a "bit broody", she said: "I always said I'd have a baby at 32 - my mum had me at 32 - so hopefully we'll do that in a few years if God allows it."
