Someone's smitten! Georgia May Foote has opened up about her relationship with boyfriend Giovanni Pernice and has said he's "the best thing that ever happened to me".

The former Corrie actress revealed her relationship with her one-time Strictly Come Dancing partner Gio is still going strong, and the loved up pair have even got cute nicknames for each other. Georgia calls Gio 'Peach', and he calls her 'Amore'. Cute!

"He's the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm in a very good place now. I've got good people around me," she told The Mirror.

Describing how their friendship formed on Strictly Come Dancing and went on to become something more serious, Georgia explained her feelings for the Italian only developed once the show ended: "It's something that just happened, I didn't get a chance to look at him that way while I was on the show."

Although their friendship took a while to blossom into romance, the pair haven't wasted any time! Not only do Georgia and Gio now live together in their own London pad, but the actress has even flown to Sicily to meet his parents.

"I've been in contact with them a lot and they are lovely," she said, adding that Gio has also met her mum and dad. Sounds like happy families, right?

Giovanni and Georgia first sparked romance rumours earlier this year after enjoying a romantic trip to Disneyland Paris together. Soon after, Giovanni confirmed the pair's relationship status with an intimate photo on Instagram, with Georgia following his lead and gushing about her beau on her own page.

When the two first met, Georgia had been in a relationship with former Corrie star Sean Ward. Although, this reportedly ended shortly after the Strictly final.

Georgia and Sean have never spoken publicly about their break up and it soon became clear she had moved on, as Sean is now looking to have a fresh start for himself.

He recently removed all traces of Georgia from his social media accounts, telling fans: "Fresh and Clean, Clean and Fresh."
