‘Strictly Come Dancing’ Star Georgia May Foote Opens Up About Giovanni Pernice Relationship

The couple got together after being paired up on the show.

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant Georgia May Foote has opened up about her relationship with Giovanni Pernice, who she met on the BBC One show.

The actress was partnered with the Italian dancer on the most recent series of ‘Strictly’, and when their time on the programme ended, they stepped things up a notch and became a couple.

Now, Georgia has praised Giovanni, telling Fabulous magazine: “This is definitely the happiest I’ve been in a relationship, 100 per cent.

“I mean, don’t get me wrong I’ve been happy in other relationships but this is very relaxed, nice and chilled.”

This isn’t the first time Georgia has gushed about Giovanni, as she’s previously described him as “my best friend” explaining that he has “helped me through a lot”.

Prior to her time on ‘Strictly’, Georgia starred on ‘Coronation Street’, and she’s now getting ready for something a little different, and preparing to tread the boards in September.

Georgia and Giovanni aren’t the only former ‘Strictly’ pair to hook up after the show, and other couples who met on it include Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev.
