Gemma Atkinson has told fans she needs “practise” after not wearing make-up for a year.

The actress took to her Instagram stories to confess she’d not worn a scrap of make-up since she last attended an event and said she needed to prepare for when life returns to normal.

Speaking to the camera, Gemma said: “It’s dawned on me that, pretty soon hopefully… genuinely I’ve not worn any make up since February, The Brit Awards last year. I was at the Brits last year… yeah.

"I need to start practising because hopefully we’ll be out again soon. I need to wash my hair, stop living in a beanie and trackies. I need practise.”

Gemma looked fresh-faced in the video, keeping her blonde hair out of her eyes with the help of a hat.

Gemma also recently revealed she and Gorka already have a name picked out for their next child together.

The blonde beauty made the revelation as she opened up about her latest psychic reading on Instagram.

She shared: "Me and Gorka had a baby boy name if we have a boy. It's a Spanish name, a little Spanish boy name, and Chris said straight away, if you have a boy it will be and he said the name," she said.

The mum-of-one also revealed the psychic reader mentioned a work opportunity Gemma had recently turned down because she didn't want to be away from her family.

”I turned a job down, quite a big job that only me and my agent knew about, and I turned it down because it would have meant time away from Mia," she said.

Gemma went on to tell her fans that her reader told her the job would come back around at another time.
