Gemma Atkinson asks fans for advice on Christmas trees
Gemma Atkinson celebrated the festive season with her boyfriend Gorka Marquez and the couple’s one-year-old daughter Mia. However, the former Strictly Come Dancing star revealed she had a major dilemma on her hands yesterday as she asked fans for their help.
In view of her 1.6 million followers, Gemma asked for advice on how to dispose of real Christmas trees.
She explained: “I’m taking my Christmas trees. I always take them down early because I like to start the New Year clean and fresh. No housework and no chores.
“I had two real trees at either side of my house this year and there’s another real tree on the table.
“What do I do with them? I’ve never had a real tree.”

The former Emmerdale actress admitted she didn’t want to cut up the trees and throw them away,
“Is there somewhere you can take them? I don’t want to bin them obviously,” Gemma mused.
“I may sound a bit blonde now but do they stay alive? Is there anywhere that you can take them that can maybe plant them?
“I don’t know. I don’t know how it works.”
Gemma then admitted she had never had a “real” Christmas tree in her home until now.
She said: “I’ve never had a real tree but it doesn’t seem nice to just cut them up.
“Am I being weird? Help me?”
“They’re only about 4ft high. They’re not big, I just don’t know what to do with them.”

Fortunately, her fans came to the rescue, as they urged the radio DJ to send the trees to an Alpaca farm.
Gemma said: “Who knew it was Alpacas’?”
“Those of you that said Alpaca farms, thank you. Apparently, they love to eat Christmas trees.”
She added: “I’ve Googled my local Alpaca farm and it’s only about 18 miles away.”
Meanwhile, Gemma took to the picture-sharing site and offered her well-wishes for the New Year.
She penned: “Wishing all of us a happy 2021. Let’s be honest it can’t really get much worse, can it?
“Thank you to all the NHS, the key workers, the front line workers who helped us even get to New Year’s Eve.”
Gemma finished: “You’re all incredible. Hope everyone enjoys their evening tonight! Stay safe and keep positive. 2021… Let’s Av it!”(sic)
