‘Strictly Come Dancing’: ‘No Love Lost’ Between Laura Whitmore And Her Former Dance Partner Giovanni Pernice Who ‘No Longer Speak’

We doubt they'll keeeeeep dancing.

Laura Whitmore and her ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner Giovanni Pernice might have been all smiles during her time on the show, but it was a different story off camera, according to reports.

The pair reportedly did not click after being matched up for this series of the dance show, and haven’t spoken to each other since Laura was voted off earlier this month.

According to The Sun, there is “no love lost” between the pair after the TV presenter got fed up with the way Giovanni spoke to her during rehearsals.

“They clashed during rehearsals as Laura got increasingly agitated with Gio’s tone and general rudeness,” a source told the newspaper.

“They pulled it together for the live shows but behind the scenes it was a different story.

“There’s certainly no love lost between them and it’s doubtful they’ll remain in contact when the series is wrapped up later this month.”


Prior to Laura’s ‘Strictly’ exit, she was forced to miss one show after hurting her ankle during rehearsals.

Laura and Giovanni eventually found themselves in the dance-off just two weeks later, losing out to Ore Oduba and Joanne Clifton.

Upon discovering her fate, an emotional Laura said: “Just being here, the judges, behind the scenes. I don’t think anyone realises how much goes on here, the make-up, the costume, everything and just to be part of that for a little while is amazing.

“And if I’m going to go against anyone then, Ore, I mean… I’m OK.”

We have contacted Laura’s management for comment.
