Strictly Come Dancing star Georgia May Foote has just announced something major on Twitter... she has landed her first theatre role.

She's been on a soap, she's danced her socks off on Strictly and now she's headed for the stage - is there anything she cannot do?

Georgia has landed herself the lead role of Holly Golightly on Breakfast At Tiffany's UK tour. She will make her debut later this year in September, touring with the musical production until 19 November.


Georgia told her fans on the social media site: "So excited to announce I will be playing Holly Golightly in @tiffanysonstage I am so excited! X."

She will share the role with Pixie Lott and The Inbetweeners star Emily Atack. While Pixie has kicked off the show already as it heads across the country, Emily will take over from 2 May until 11 June. Breakfast At Tiffany's will then make its way to London's West End with Pixie reprising the role of Holly, before Georgia then steps into her shoes.

Following Georgia's announcement her boyfriend and former Strictly partner Giovanni Pernice made sure to congratulate her.

He cutely tweeted: "Proud of you Amore. Can't wait to see you on stage !!! #pocketrocket."

Georgia and Giovanni first went public with their romance earlier this year, and have since moved in together in their new home in London.

While romance didn't blossom for them until after they had wrapped Strictly back in December (Georgia had been dating ex Sean Ward at the time), she has now gushed that Giovanni is 'the best thing' that has happened to her.

Georgia recently revealed the pair have nicknames for each other too. While he calls her 'Amore', she calls him 'Peach.' Cute!

Speaking about their relationship, she has said: "It's something that just happened, I didn't get a chance to look at [Giovanni] that way while I was on [Strictly]."
