Gorka Marquez responds

As per Entertainment Daily, Gorka replied to the question with the following response.

Despite leaving very early on in the show this year around, Gorka has enjoyed immense success as a dancer on Strictly Come, the previous year. Gorka, who was also facing a personal situation at the time of his stint with Strictly Come, opened up about his struggles of being on stage, this year around. Opening up on Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens, he said the following about how he felt during the show.

โ€œItโ€™s quite heart-breaking, you know, to have to leave again a few days after Gemma gives birth and not be at home. In my head, it makes me think I want to quit and just be at home for the next three months. But at the same time, I need to do my job and work.โ€

More about the Q&A

During his Q&A, Gorka also spilled the beans about his personal favorite contestants, and who he was vouching for this season. As we all know, Ellie Leach emerged as this seasonโ€™s winner, but Gorka said the following about what he thought of how this season panned out winner.

โ€œAny of them. I think the three couples deserved it in their own way. But beyond dance the 3 are amazing people. So I was happy with the outcome. The only real winners are dance and the amazing final we all witnessed that night.โ€
