Strictly dancer Giovanni Pernice appeared to confirm he and Georgia May Foote are dating by posting an intimate photo of the pair together on Instagram.

The pair had kept quiet on such rumours, but now it seems Giovanni has shared picture proof to suggest they are true.

Taking to Instagram, the dancing professional shared a photo of himself and Georgia together. While she lay with her head on the table (showing off her new fringed 'do) and rested on her rumoured new beau, Giovanni affectionately leaned into Georgia for the snap.

Alongside his post, he shared a love heart emoji, adding the caption: "GG @georgiamay112."

Does this mean he and Georgia have now gone public?

Fans were quick to think so and shared their thoughts on the couple's relationship. One user said: "I'm so glad they're finally together, I've been shipping them since week 1."

Another wrote: "Oohhh so jealous of Georgia. @pernicegiovanniofficial is #HOT."

While Georgia and Giovanni were competing on Strictly, rumours began circulating about the nature of their relationship, with many hinting at a romance. Georgia, who was dating Sean at the time, insisted she and Giovanni were just good friends and said she found the claims "offensive."

Even though she appears to have struck up a new romance with Giovanni, after splitting with Sean, that hasn't stopped the 24-year-old from being criticised on social media.

Encouraging her to take no notice, fans made sure to offer Georgia their support.

One follower commented: "We only get one life. Enjoy & be happy." While another said: "What a lovely photograph and a lovely couple. Two sides to every story, neither of which is anybody's business except the people involved. I wish you both joy and happiness."

Giovanni's latest post comes after it was reported he and Georgia had enjoyed a romantic trip to Disneyland Paris recently.

Pictures surfaced of the pair holding hands while at the theme park and onlookers claimed Georgia and Giovanni seemed "besotted" and "were kissing in full view of lots of people".

Their trip followed Georgia and Sean's break up which is said to have taken place shortly after the Strictly final.

According to The Mirror, Sean struggled to deal with the close bond Georgia and Giovanni had formed while dancing together on the BBC show.

They claimed: "It was Sean who pushed Georgia away, he didn't feel secure in their relationship and it led to huge rows."

Sean has so far made no reference to the split, while Georgia has deleted any traces of her relationship with Sean from her Instagram.
