Gemma Atkinson, 36, returned to film Steph’s Packed Lunch in Leeds today, as she shared a number of stories behind the scenes on her Instagram. In one particularly hilarious clip, the former Hollyoaks star explained how she struggled to put on her own makeup due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions, and ended up looking like she had been “punched” with her uneven eyeshadow.

What the f**k

Gemma began her day at home with fiancé Gorka Marquez, as the latter was up early hoovering their home while their daughter Mia, one, slept.

The star appeared fresh-faced with hardly any make-up on, as her hair was noticeably shorter and blonder since the easing of lockdown restrictions last week.

The actress shared: “Early start today, I’m heading to Leeds, because I’m back on Steph’s Packed Lunch. 

“So you can tune in from 12.30pm. Gorka’s hoovering at this time in the morning.

“Anyway half 12, Steph’s Packed Lunch. I’ll see you there.”

In the next clip, Gemma made an Instagram Boomerang of the door of her dressing room, which had her name on it.

Once inside, the former Strictly Come Dancing contestant explained her dilemma over getting ready to appear on camera.

Looking stylish in a white slogan T-shirt and her hair styled in loose waves, Gemma said: “Because of COVID we have to do our own hair and make-up for the minute. 

“Which puts me sh*t out of luck, because I can’t do it. I can’t do it. What the f**k,” she laughed.

In her story, Gemma had tagged her regular make-up artist Lauren D’Rozario, who also works with show host Steph McGovern.

The star continued: “Do I look like a clown? I can’t put my own make-up on to save my life.”

Gemma then zoomed in on her brown eyeshadow before bursting into a fit of giggles.

She exclaimed: “I look like I have been punched!”

Just says earlier the actress had paid a visit to Emily Rose Monk’s salon, where she had cut inches off her hair following nearly four months since hairdressers had closed due to the coronavirus lockdown.

Gemma typed: “Post lockdown chop! Finally got my hair cut & colour done and it feels great! 

“Just to have someone else wash it was a joy. Thank you @emilyrosemonkhair.

“Bring on the new salon adventures @emilyrosemonksalon.”

Gorka was clearly impressed with his fiancée’s new locks as he shared a number of heart eye emojis underneath the post.

While fans gushed over the snap, they asked her to share the secrets behind her new colour.

One said: “What colour is it Gemma please? X”

Steph’s Packed Lunch continues today on Channel 4 at 12.30pm.
