Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens returning for an extended second series on W

The new six-part series will see the celebrity couple continue to share more of their life unfiltered.



In an extended second series of Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens, celebrity couple Gemma Atkinson and Gorka Márquez will open the doors to their private life and offer viewers an intimate look into their world, as they embrace full-on family chaos since becoming a family of four.


Speaking about today's news, Gemma and Gorka said "We're excited to be back on your screens with W for our second series. The messages we received, and are still receiving from the first series, have blown us away. We're glad so many families can relate to ours and the crazy, wonderful, and exhausting world of parenthood!"


In this second series, Gemma is making the most of what's left of her maternity leave before gearing up to return to work in April. Meanwhile, Gorka, having completed his latest stint on Strictly Come Dancing, is as busy as ever.


With a building project imminent, a trip to Gorka's hometown in Spain, Gemma's first children's book release and her ongoing training journey, their lives are anything but quiet. Having little time in their hectic schedule and new career opportunities also reaching an all-time high, the couple are determined to make the most of the precious time they have together with Mia and baby Thiago, and viewers will be there every step of the way!


Commissioned by UKTV's head of factual and factual entertainment, Helen Nightingale, and ordered by W's channel director, Adam Collings and UKTV's director of commissioning, Hilary Rosen, the new series will be exec produced by Lizi Wootton from Two Rivers Media, working alongside series producer Biança Barker, development producer Sophie Scott and self-shooting producer director Molly Fraser.


Speaking ahead of the new series, Helen Nightingale said "I'm so excited to have Gemma and Gorka back on our screens for a second series. Their warm and relatable relationship, and hilariously unfiltered moments from series one, have left audiences wanting more and I can't wait to see what else the family have in store for us in this next instalment."


To which Adam Collings added "It's fantastic news that we're getting a second helping of Gemma and Gorka on W. Our viewers have loved getting to know the family behind closed doors so I'm thrilled that they can continue to do so in this new series which promises more heartfelt and honest moments."


And executive producer for Two Rivers Media, Lizi Wootton said "We are hugely excited to be working with Gemma and Gorka again to make a second series of Life Behind the Lens. We have been overwhelmed by the love for the series and we can't wait to share more of their unfiltered moments as they now negotiate life as a family of four. Standby for more fun, no nonsense advice and Spanish Strictly sparkle!"


Gemma and Gorka: Life Behind the Lens will return later this year on W and UKTV Play
