Gemma Atkinson, 36, has spoken out on her Instagram story after someone created an account using her name on the social media app and attempted to charge fans money for raunchy webcam website OnlyFans. The Strictly Come Dancing star warned people not to be duped by the catfish, as she said “don’t be paying anyone” for any supposed saucy clips or photos of her.
Gemma said in view of her 1.6 million followers: “Apparently there’s an account on here pretending to be me and it’s asking people for money for an OnlyFans.
“I haven’t got an OnlyFans, if I did it would be just dogs and food.
“You won’t get your money’s worth so don’t be paying anyone on here. It’s not me,” she added.
OnlyFans is a content subscription service based in London where content creators can earn money from users, who subscribe to their content.

It allows content creators to receive funding directly from their fans on a monthly basis, as well as one-time tips and the pay-per-view feature.
Many celebrities have turned to using the website to share sexy photos and clips.
Stars thought to be on the site include rapper Cardi B, actor Ansel Elgort, and Love Island’s Megan Barton Hanson.
Gemma gave the impassioned plea while she relaxed at home in her kitchen, wearing gym wear.
Gemma posted a throwback video of a gruelling fitness routine involving her holding heavy weights, while walking around the gym with her personal trainer.
She shared: “Walking into Monday like… Can’t wait to get back on my weekly sessions with Evil Steve.
“We have a gym at home which I love! It’s my favourite room in the house, BUT training @upfitnesslive twice a week keeps me that bit more motivated.
“Being accountable to Steve as well as myself keeps me smashing my personal best’s,” she added.
The ex-Hollyoaks star also admitted to missing being around “other people” after a third national lockdown took socialising off the agenda.
She continued: “I also love the atmosphere of being around other people all wanting to better themselves.
“I guess I’m kinda like a child being left to do homework alone or being supervised and doing it loads better!
“Ps. Steve’s great advice to me of, ‘You have to walk with your eyes open’. I’ll bare that in mind next time.”
