Strictly Come Dancing star Georgia May Foote has denied rumours she and Giovanni Pernice are engaged.

Now that would have been a whirlwind romance!

Strictly Come Dancing stars Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice, 23 January 2015.


Recently, Georgia and Giovanni found themselves at the centre of speculation they are set to wed, after the former Coronation Street actress was spotted wearing a sparkly ring on her engagement finger.

Georgia and Giovanni are currently on tour with Strictly and have been photographed looking pretty smitten with each other. Heading out together in Birmingham, Georgia was snapped wearing the silver band on her left hand, but has since insisted it doesn't mean she and Giovanni are heading for marriage.

While Georgia did confirm she had been given the ring by her new beau, she told the Sunday Mirror: "It isn't an engagement ring. It's a present."

She and Giovanni are, however, looking to move in together.

Despite having only been dating for just a month, the dancing pair are already looking for places to live in London.

Georgia revealed her plans to join her boyfriend in London last week. She said: "I'm going to move to London because I'm just at that age now."

She and Giovanni first met on Strictly's last series. The couple were paired together and made it to the final, but lost out to The Wanted singer Jay McGuinness.

At the time, Georgia had been dating actor Sean Ward and insisted she and Giovanni are just good friends.

Georgia and Sean split shortly after the Strictly final. It's claimed the pair found themselves constantly rowing, due to Sean's insecurities when it came to Georgia and Giovanni's close bond. This, however, has not been confirmed and neither Georgia or Sean have spoken publicly about their split.

Rumours she and Giovanni were romantically linked first surfaced at the beginning of this year. They had enjoyed a loved-up trip to Disneyland Paris with Giovanni confirming he and Georgia were an item just weeks later.

To do so, he shared an intimate snap of himself and Georgia to Instagram, posting a love heart emoji alongside it.
