GEMMA Atkinson has shown off her epic Christmas home transformation after picking up some bargains in the Home Bargains sale.
The 36-year-old former Hollyoaks actress went all out with two trees and garlands across her staircase, spending five hours decorating while daughter Mia was with her aunt.

Gemma lives in Manchester with Strictly Come Dancing pro Gorka Marquez, 30, who she met on the show in 2017, and their one-year-old girl.
She shared her festive plans with her 1.5 million Instagram followers, while Gorka was busy rehearsing and filming with dance partner and EastEnders actress Maisie Smith.
Speaking on her stories, she said: “Christmas tree’s going up today. Mia’s at my sister’s so I can get it done.”
Although she’d managed to keep Mia occupied for the day, Gemma did have her two dogs in tow as she drove to the bargain shop.

She jokingly chastised them: “Don’t chew any baubles, I don’t want you s***ing out tinsel everywhere.
“Rule number two, you do not hump any of the Christmas toys or teddies that we’ve got.”
The exhausted mum later showed off the finished job, with personalised red stockings hanging on the fireplace, a singing dog toy and gorgeous red bows.

She said: “Five hours to put two trees up and garlands.
“I’ve never had two trees before but I went to Home Bargains and they had a sale on so I thought ‘why not?’
“When Mia comes home she is going to go crazy when she sees it all.”
