Gemma Atkinson ‘doesn’t age’ as she marks birthday with teen throwback snap

Gemma Atkinson has been told she ‘doesn’t age’ as she marked her birthday with a sneaky throwback.

The Hits Radio presenter took to Instgaram with a snap from when her first ever photoshoot more than 20 years ago.

Gemma shared the youthful black and white image alongside a poignant post to mark her 37th birthday today (November 16).

The Bury-born actress shot to fame playing Lisa Hunter in the Channel 4 soap opera Hollyoaks but also spent many years modelling.

Writing alongside her teen modelling snap, Gemma said: “Exactly 22 years ago I did my first ever photoshoot and stepped into the crazy world of ‘showbiz’ as they call it.

“Looking back over the roller-coaster ride that got me here today turning 37 I’ve realised the one thing that’s been consistent throughout is my supportive close knit family, my incredibly loyal friendships and my always reliable management team.

“They have always had my back, told me when I’m wrong & kept me grounded through everything. I always like to reflect on my Birthday and this was today’s thought.

“Age is a privilege denied to so many, and that’s why I always embrace and enjoy every year ageing. 37 today! Surrounded by love, laughter and contentment. What more could I ask for?”

She added: “Let’s be having you 37! I’m excited for what you have in store for me…”

As well as sending their birthday wishes, Gemma’s followers were stunned by her snap.

@deborahjoanneparmenter said: “You dont age happy birthday.”

“And looking absolutely no different. Happy Birthday,” @officialchrissy21 added.

@charl_hayes11 commented: “Happy birthday! this is such a good read you haven’t changed one bit!”



Gemma is returning to Hollyoaks

“Happy Birthday @glouiseatkinson have a lovely day. You haven’t changed a bit. Maybe wiser and incredibly even more beautiful, both outside and in,” @curtis.paula added.

@ukgarrylawless replied: “Happy Birthday, you don’t appear to have aged in 22 years. Have a great day and year!”

And Gemma is set to return to where it all started.
