GEMMA Atkinson was not going to stand for trolls who accused her of being “lazy” for hiring a house cleaner.
The Hits radio presenter and Hollyoaks star, 37, copped flack from fans after she shared a photo of the Christmas gift her cleaner had left for her family.

It included a chocolate bear, flowers and a card to her, Strictly Come Dancing fiancé, Gorka Marquez, and their two-year-old daughter, Mia.
That photo got a heated response and Gemma snapped back at the haters.
“Of all the things to get grief on on social. Today for me it’s because I had a cleaner yesterday,” she wrote and then shared some of the comments.
They included: “‘I can’t believe you don’t do your own cleaning.’ ‘You’re supposed to be a parent.’ ‘How lazy are you?’ ‘Think you’ve got your hands full, I clean my house every day.'”
Gemma responded: “I clean my house once, twice, sometimes three times a week.
“I have a child, two dogs and a guy. But once a month I have a deep clean from my cleaner.”
Gemma’s clap back comes after Gorka was rushed to hospital and put on a drip after catching a mystery illness.
The dancer was taken to A&E just days before Christmas, where he was hooked up to machines and monitored by doctors overnight before being sent home.
Gorka, 31, took to his Instagram to detail his “24hrs in hospital” as he joked it was a great excuse to miss out on wrapping presents with Gemma.
The Strictly professional – who was paired with Coronation Street actress Katie McGlynn in this year’s competition – shared a series of snaps from his visit.
One saw the dancer looking worse for wear as he sat on his bed in a ward in Fairfield Hospital, Manchester, with a drip in his left arm.
A follow-up clip saw him lying in the bed as he received fluids from the intravenous therapy – as he donned a mask and shook his head back and forth.
Gorka then cosied up as best as he could for the night as he slept at the hospital, having eaten a sandwich for dinner – which he posed with for a selfie.
“I was looking forward for Christmas at home but that was interesting 24h in hospital,” the dad-of-one, who shares daughter Mia with wife Gemma, 37, wrote.
“Gemma thinks it was a excuse to avoid all the wrapping of the Christmas presents… Everything is okey and I am back home having cookies and cuddles of my little nurse.”
Gorka thanked the doctors and nurses at the hospital for “being so lovely” to him before concluded with Spanish Christmas wishes: “Feliz navidad!”
