Georgia May Foote And Giovanni Pernice Fuel 'Strictly Come Dancing' Romance Reports, As They Share Cosy Selfie

While ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ stars Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice are yet to speak about reports they are now a couple, they have done little to stop speculation with their latest Instagram post.


Giovanni has shared a rather cosy looking selfie with his former dance partner, leading to many fans concluding that it is confirmation of their relationship.

The snap, which sees the couple resting their heads on one another was simply captioned: "GG @georgiamay112."

The pair, who finished runners up on last year’s series of ‘Strictly’, sparked romance reports when they were spotted on holiday at Disneyland Paris together over the New Year break.

Sources told The Sun that they had seen them kissing as they walked around the theme park, which a picture showed them holding hands.

Georgia had been in a relationship with fellow former ‘Coronation Street’ star Sean Ward during her time on the BBC ballroom show.

After reports about her relationship with Giovanni were published, it was claimed that she had split with Sean after he “pushed her away”, due to her increasing closeness to her dance partner.

A source told The Mirror: “Georgia was very fond of Sean and she cared for him deeply, but he found it difficult to get over the close friendship she had with Giovanni.

“It was Sean who pushed Georgia away, he didn’t feel secure in their relationship and it led to huge rows.

“Georgia would regularly be in floods of tears backstage. Giovanni was trying to be a good friend,”

She previously insisted that she was not interested in Giovanni romantically during her ‘Strictly’ stint, saying: “It’s so stupid and quite offensive hearing rumours like that.

“Giovanni and I are just good mates – it’s lovely.”
