Gemma Atkinson’s hilarious reaction as she takes an ice bath


Gemma Atkinson has shared the moment she braved an ice bath.

The Hits Radio presenter took the plunge watched by her family and fitness fanatic Gemma, 36, shared a video of her bath on Instagram.

Baths in freezing cold water are used to speed up recovery after exercise by reducing temperature, blood flow and inflammation.

The former Emmerdale and Hollyoaks actress from Bury lowered herself into the water in a black cropped top and pants and distracted herself by singing and chatting with her toddler daughter Mia.

Her dog Norman showed his support by licking his mum’s arm while she braced herself against the cold.

“Of course I can do it,” she pep-talked herself.

She told her daughter “I’m cold Mia” before bursting into a rendition of Cold As Ice by Foreigner.

“Mia don’t come in here it’s too cold for Mia,” she told her little one who was curious about what her mum was doing.

As her fiance Gorka Marquez offered advice she joked: “Don’t talk to me sweetheart I’m trying to focus.”

She shared the video with the words: “I did it! It was freezing but with the art of distraction in shouting/singing/ clapping and focusing I did it.

“My legs actually feel great now!”

Her former Hits Radio breakfast show co-star Gethin Jones commented “Norman” with a crying laughing-face emoji.

Another follower responded with a laughing face at her words for Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Gorka while she was trying to focus.

“You have made my day! love the singing well done,” said another with amused emojis.

Impressed followers sent messages to Gemma.

“Fair play but I’m sticking to a hot shower,” said one.

“Was cold just watching this Well done!” praised another.

“How did you manage not to swear?” asked another fan.

And another wrote: “Ice baths are amazing (once you get over the shock). I take a cup of coffee with me and wrap a hand towel around my shoulders.”

Gemma, who welcomed Mia in July 2019, yesterday shared photos of herself while eight months pregnant, five weeks after giving birth, a year postpartum and now with some inspiring words.

“Four pictures each of which I’m extremely happy in,” she explained.

“The first picture I was growing Mia, I never take for granted I was able to do that.

“Second picture, Myself and Mia were in the world safe and healthy after a rough start at birth. It could have been very different but my body had pulled through and I was mentally feeling strong again.
