Strictly star Jamelia admitted she can understand why Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice have begun dating, after dancing together on the show.

Georgia and Giovanni have hit the headlines recently, as rumours surfaced of their budding romance. Appearing on Loose Women earlier today, Jamelia was asked about the pair's relationship, as she danced alongside them and go to know them both during Strictly's last series.

She was quizzed on whether she saw any signs of Georgia and Giovanni being romantically linked behind-the-scenes when Strictly was filming.

At the time, Georgia had been dating former Corrie star Sean Ward and had hit out at claims of the couple being rocked by the so-called 'Strictly curse'. She claimed such rumours were "offensive" and insisted she and Giovanni were just good friends.

While Jamelia awkwardly dodged commenting on the dancing pair during their time on Strictly, she did admit she can understand why romance could have developed between them.

"I can't possibly say," Jamelia told her co-stars. "This is the thing, I do see her as a friend. I guess I could say I understand. You spend hours [together]."

Seeming to rubbish claims of a show curse, Jamelia added: "I believe you can't be taken away. You either willingly go or... I can't say."

Jamelia's comments come after Giovanni appeared to confirm he and Georgia are now dating.

The professional dancer shared an intimate photo of the pair cuddling up together to his Instagram account. He posted an emoji of a love heart alongside it, adding the caption: "GG @georgiamay112."

Fans were quick to take the snap as picture proof the couple are now officially together. His picture followed reports he and Georgia had enjoyed a romantic trip to Disneyland shortly after Christmas, where onlookers claimed the two had been holding hands and kissing in public.

Georgia is thought to have split with Sean (her boyfriend of eight months) 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.

He, however, has made no comment on the break up.
