There was once a time when it felt that the criteria needed to bag a role in the UK television series Hollyoaks, was just to be beautiful and that the acting talent did not really matter all that much. However, actress Gemma Atkinson came along and proved that you could be beautiful but also have the acting talent to go with it.
Since her days on Hollyoaks, Gemma Atkinson has gone on to land plenty of modelling work, which is no surprise considering what a stunning body she has. Well, Gemma has now been talking about how she manages to keep herself looking so great and it seems that dating personal trainer Olly Foster is one of the biggest factors.
Atkinson explained, "My fella is my trainer, so I have no excuse! [Olly is] brilliant. He's great and he's not too hard on me. We're on the same page. [Working out] is more for mental benefits for me, it makes me feel good."
She added, "If you've got a day in the studio, you need to eat well and get a workout in in the morning to get you through. Weekends you can treat yourself though, life's too short not to eat cake."
As far as her acting career is concerned, Gemma Atkinson has put her dreams of cracking Hollywood on hold for a while, after agreeing to a role in the hit UK soap Emmerdale. With that said though, we are sure that Gemma would jump at the chance of heading back over to the US, should the right role come along for her. Watch this space!
